The Great Retro Quiz! .21: King's Quest

This is a really emotional quiz for me. I grew up on the old Sierra “Quest” games and pinpoint them as the main reasons I love videogames today. Sadly, I debated whether or not to even do a quiz on the original King’s Quest in the fear that a lot of people haven’t played it (I like to pretend that this is everyone’s favorite game). Now is the time to prove me wrong. Come out of the woodwork, old school adventure fans! Unite!

Are you like me and have nothing but fond memories of this classic, revolutionary adventure? Do you remember every baffling verb/noun combination? Take the quiz to find out. (Anyone that gets a perfect score is officially my new hero.)

Just leave your answers in the comments and check my community blog tomorrow (2/7) for the results.

“Initiate quiz.” (I don’t know how to do that.) “Perform quiz.” (I don’t know how to do that.) “Take quiz.” (You begin taking the quiz.) Good luck!
