Bringing Quiz Archives back to life
Back in the early 2000s, there used to be hundreds of small dot-coms vying with each other for space on the internet. Many of them lured people with events and competitions with big prizes. One of the them was ticklewit.com, which had a daily event comprising of a quiz, a puzzle and a crossword. The quizzes were pretty decent, mastermind style, mostly comprising of one-word answers. When i was working in Tektronix, a group of us were regular “ticklewitters”, maintaining a steady side-income through this site.
Ticklewit gave its prizes in the form of fabmart gift vouchers and thanks to it, i am a gold member at fabmart. I used to order all kinds of crazy things from fabmart, just because i had lot of vouchers with me, even to the extent of ordering “one tropicana juice” with the delivery time set at 7 AM, so that it could be used as a wake-up call for us!
As with scores of dot-coms, ticklewit started going down in 2001. First, they reduced the quantum of prizes and one fine day, all the prizes were gone and so was the site. But, I had diligently collected the answers of all the daily quizzes and have now uploaded them on a separate page.
So, here you have, hundreds of mastermind type questions on the ticklewit quiz page. I have also uploaded more than 1500 questions from other sites which were offering regular quizzes, but are now offline. Check the other pages:

Oh Good to see another Ticklewitter! A friend introduced me to the site after he saw me solving crossword puzzles in the newspaper. We both tickled our wit with such passion that in a month almost every classmate was furiously trying their luck. This was in June 2000. I remember shortly after that they reduced points for each game and also made it a timed affair. That never stopped us and I think me and my friend earned in excess of 1500 each. I still hope it comes back because the content was of a good standard (made us think), the process of earning tickles and redeeming them was easy and trustworthy.
