$70 - PIQ #4


Date Posted: Tue 20-Aug-08 23:06
PIQId will pause until September (TBA).  The games have been a success with some minor issues.  The new website is currently being developed to make the games more efficient and easier to navigate.  To all, thank you for playing PIQId!  PIQ#4 will be up until it has been identified.  This site will be up until the new website is ready for launch.  Again, thank you for playing - now it's time to make more games, and look for sponsors!  See you soon!

Date Posted: Tue 06-Aug-08 11:30
has garnered almost 700 hits (repeat and new visitors) since its inception; it’s a slow but good start considering that I’ve only released the games only to friends.   The hits are mostly local but have since seen hits from as far as Japan, Florida, Illinois, Colorado, California, Idaho, & Oregon!   

I’ve also received a few e-mails from people who made some quite nice and encouraging remarks about the PIQId games.   I’ll be posting those on the website as well…

The game’s progress is on schedule, albeit I got bogged down a couple of times due to other projects – not to mention the Blue Angels last week.  A few more games and I’ll be ready to publicize PIQId on the papers.  By then, I’ll be preparing to approach potential sponsors.

I’ll be posting more pix and clues/facts soon. I digressed on another project with “The Deadliest Catch’s” new coffee brand, “The Deadliest Brew” – splendeadly coffee!  Visit -t www.deadliestbrew.com.

I’m developing more games that will include: Multiple Choice, SatNav XY, X Marks The Spot (scavenger hunt), PhotoMathic (math problems), PhotoSynthesis, 1000 Words,  and many more. Each category will have different levels and prize values. The higher the stakes, the harder the games become.  Pique your brain; use any resources that are available to you. Research, read between the lines; the answer maybe facing you right in the face. Happy learning!

Piqpix (Place In Question PIX) will be transitioning to the new official website - PIQID.com. PIQID (pik-i-dee) stands for Photo Intelligence Quotient IDentification (Photo IQ ID). The transition will reflect the development changes and expansion of the games.  The games won't be limited to identifying just places but will also include identifying everything; of course, you'll be faced with some trivia and   presented with historical facts that you can use to find the answers.  PIQID is a free game that challenges your knowledge and encourages you to exercise your deductive reasoning skills.
