The Ultimate Odyssey IQ Challenge
It's a contest fifty albums in the making!
 

From January 5-11, 2010, The Odyssey Scoop and the Unofficial Podcast allowed Adventures in Odyssey fans everywhere to take The Ultimate Odyssey IQ Challenge, a trivia contest that would surely separate die-hard fans from the "casual listener." A total of 100 trivia questions covered the entire series of albums 1-50, with two questions representing each album... and ultimate it was! This contest aimed at quizzing contestants based on facts that tend to "whiz" right past listeners' ears, and those are the facts we thrived on in creating the questions. Some were easy, some funny, and others took a few minutes to figure out by listening to episodes.

 

Research was emphasized for fans to earn the highest scores in the fastest time... qualifying them to win and making them the Odyssey "whiz"! Visitors were given an opportunity to re-submit their contest entry to improve their scores, but only the most recent entry was graded. A total of 104 unique contestants participated in the challenge with a total of 138 submissions.

And thanks to everyone who participated!
