I was wondering how other people might feel about suggesting a "give up" type of option where we can see the answers we don't know? Or am I missing this option already being present?

I've had the "Movie Stars Morphed!" square saved for several days because I'm stuck on the clue "Super Bowl 2003". I'm a big sports fan, but that didn't help. I even scoured the Wikipedia article on the Super Bowl and found no names that match up with the scrambled letters.

The only person of whom the picture reminds me is Marilyn Manson, but that was not correct.

I don't want to just give up and never know the answer but I'm sort of beating my head against a brick wall at this point.

What are other people's thoughts on having option that displays the answers and gives you zero points for the puzzle?

I think some of these clues aren't very intuitive. I have several that I can't get, even with scrambling the letters.

Ditto here.....I just closed out of it and didn't save any of the I am supposing that it is a lose, lose... for me and the author.

Yes! But still give the author something for their effort. This game is like Lodi's last ballet recital, all I could think about was......................

I think that there should be a "Submit" button, so that we could submit a puzzle we give up on and still get some percentage of the points as we do for quizzes. I can submit a quiz if I answer only one question correctly--or even no questions, I guess. I don't really care so much about the points, but I hate having the incomplete square just hanging there unfinished.

I'm having the same problem. I've got several that I just can't figure out and I want to be able to give the author credit for the effort that went in to creating. Its not the authors fault that I just can't figure it out.

Great points...since a partial quiz can be submitted, it does seem a partial trivia square should be as well.

Thanks for the discussion!

An "I give up" option has already been suggested in the BUGS/ENHANCEMENTS. Be sure to add other ideas there.

Thanks, Sploofizz. I was sort of feeling other players out before suggesting it. I'm glad to know I'm not alone.
