    Welp, this.
    A quick note that the second test opportunity is 8 PM ET on the 23rd--the only time that would be reasonable for Americans.

    And for what it's worth, I signed up.

    There will be 3 different sets of questions.

    Waiting for that 3rd session at 2am local time.

    Edit: Holy shit that was hard. Too many Japan-centric questions IMO

    I successfully managed to screenshot all 180 questions, so we'll have a permanent record of what was asked.

    All 3 tests were quite difficult and some of the questions insane or subjective. I'll be shocked if many reach a 100% mark on any of them.

    Oh? I was under the assumption that the questions were randomized.

    Glad to hear they weren't.

    Nah, they'll 100% have been the same for everyone, if only to prevent people "cheating" by posting questions from test 1 that could have ended up on test 3 (though the first 3 questions were the same on all three tests). However I can prove that anyway - on Discord a few questions have been posted by another user that matched up with mine, and Naka tweeted this today, with a screenshot of question 18: https://twitter.com/nakayuji/status/1353259189389332480
    My Needlemouse question was also question 18, and the chances of this being the same on randomised question sets is insanely low.

    Neat. A full English set then. Awaiting the good news that we have a full Japanese one as well.

    Results are now up: I got 30/60, 27/60 and 27/60 for a rank of Moderate Fan, the 3rd highest (as opposed to Ordinary Fan, the lowest, Great Fan, the 2nd highest, and Master). Sega have been nice enough to do everyone a custom answer key that I've just finished saving out, so once the Sega Retro wiki is writable again I can put up a nice big and detailed article about all of this: I'm calling bagsies for the main write. =P

    How'd everyone else do? I'm aware of exactly one person so far who hit the 60IQ level (my best mark was an IQ rank of 51.7 - due to the results split on test 3, my 3rd IQ was higher than my second despite getting the same amount of points).

    I got ordinary fan ;_;

    Overlord, any chance of archiving the answer/results? They have good trivia blurbs but I think I only have C available unless the answers were made available for all.
    Also a bit sad but not surprising that only Japan is eligible for the random drawing stuffs.

    I fully intend to do this, and will be starting to write the page up shortly offline for publishing to Sega Retro when the wiki is writable again. I've already saved out all the answer key pages (as screenshots - the JS they're using is making HTML saves near impossible, though I have got the image files separately), and will be covering the full question set, full answer set, the trivia items, and pictures for all the test question and answer note pages (though I'm going to have to assemble the images used in the tests themselves from screenshots rather than use the original files, unless anyone still has them in their browser caches? Even the URL to any of the files would be useful, if they're still on Sega's servers. Getting one of the image's URLs with a tool like https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/chrome_cache_view.html would be enormously helpful.)

    Those are the ones from the answer key, I have those. I'm after the ones used on the actual test.

    I'm intending on including that discussion on the page itself, yes.

    Silly request

    Hide the answers - I quite like the idea of turning this into a test that people can actually take. Or rather, I'd like to take the test before I template it to bits :)
