Quiz Description

Once upon a time, in a middle class house in small town Nova Scotia, a quiz was created that tested the knowledge of the bravest Alpaca Farm users. They were asked questions of varied skill level that revolved around various aspects of culture (music, television, literature, art) that were influenced by fairy tales and folklore. It was rated a PG on the ModKos scale. A champion would eventually be crowned, an individual who got the highest score among the participants. And they all lived happily ever after. The End.
