Trivia Tuesday: What's this "Twitter Tag Game"?

September 23, 2014 Blaze Shadowhorn 3 Comments



What is this "Twitter Tag Game" everyone on Twitter keeps talking about? All I see is #TwitterTagGame this and #TwitterTagGame that. What's it all about?

That is how I was like yesterday. As Christina Lionrider later told me, the Twitter Tag Game is when you share 5 things/facts about yourself and you tag/nominate 5 others to do the same. When I finally figured out what it was, I was eager to be nominated for it but most people had already done theirs.... When I thought all hope was lost, Jason Goldenshield and Sorceress Miklai had extra spots to nominate so I got the chance to tell you all a few things about me! Since today is also Trivia Tuesday, I figured why not put the two together and do something interesting. So.. Let's get to it!



Number One:
My real name is Yadin, which means, "He will judge" in Hebrew. I am a Senior and I am 1/5 Moroccan, Egyptian, Israeli, Irish, and Polish. I was born in Southern California and lived there for the first 3 years of my life and after that moved to Maryland where I would then spend the next 12 years growing up. After many years of constant pushing, I finally convinced my parents that we should move back to California (since most of our family lives here) and I have been living back out here for the past two years.

Number Two:
I have been on my school Varsity Soccer team since Sophomore Year and have played soccer and basketball my whole life. Other sports I play include lacrosse, tennis, football, and I surf and skate.

Number Three:
I'm a pretty outgoing and optimistic guy. I love making new friends and I get along with pretty much everyone (unless you're rude to me or my friends). I love having a good laugh and have a pretty dark sense of humor...

Number Four:My first computer game was either Webkinz or Club Penguin since when I tried signing up for Runescape (what would have been my first game), I was smart enough to put my real birth date when it asked what it was. Thank you IP tracking. Thank you for not allowing me to play with my friends in fourth grade. Eventually I ran into Wizard101 which my friend introduced me to. I thought it was eh at first and wasn't going to download it but my friend forced me to and so many years later, here I am! (I am writing so many essays this year about my experiences in Wizard101 and the community for college and other things. It's crazy!)

Number Five:
When I graduate High School this year, I want to major in either Business and Management/Finance like my Dad, or go down a Journalism/Communications path or anything that lets me do online blogging as I love this kind of stuff and have recently been looking at other gaming websites to see if there are are sites looking for some new writers (if you know of anyone, help a Wizard out!)

Extra Uber Random Fact:
I love Jell-O with a dying passion.


Do you feel like you learned anything about me? I sure hope so! And now for my nominee's...
I challenge you, @KelseyFireheart@Mythical_Iron @PatrickDeath12 @HunterMythVault @w101stephanie to take part in the #TwitterTagGame and teach us all something about yourselves that we didn't already know.

With that said and done, who's excited for Trivia Tuesday!? If this is your first TT, what happens is I ask 10 questions relating to the general theme of the post and you test yourself on your knowledge. These questions are normally random or funny or things to get your brain thinking. Once you finish, you scroll down to see the answers and see how you did. Comment below letting me know how you did! TT is a bi-weekly segment so the next time it will happen will be on October 7th.


  1. Which Twizard started the Twitter Tag Game?
  2. What does the photo of the guy in the eye-patch have to do with this post or where he is located in it?
  3. What is the name of the Wizard101 Fansite I blog on twice a month for? (relates to fact 5 and blogging)
  4. What are the steps in making Jell-O? (relates to the extra uber random fact because why not)
  5. Where was the World Cup held this past Summer? (relates to fact 1)
  6. In Webkinz, what was the name of the place/shop you went to to go gem hunting? (relates to fact 4)

Ready to see how you did?
  1. Which Twizard started the Twitter Tag Game? Julia SparkleFountain
  2. What does the photo of the guy in the eye-patch have to do with this post or where he is located in it? That is Number Two from Austin Powers. Get it? Number Two for Fact Two? I'm Punny >.<
  3. What is the name of the Wizard101 Fansite I blog on twice a month for? Wizards Unite
  4. What are the steps in making Jell-O? You take the Jell-O package contents and put it in a bowl. Fill it with 2 cups of boiling water, stir it and get rid of all the powdery part, and then add 2 cups of cold water and stir for two more minutes. Then you let it sit for 4 hours. Yes, I have this memorized.

  6. In Webkinz, what was the name of the place/shop you went to to mine for gems? The Curio Shop. "Welcome to the Curio Shop. Hope you find what you're looking for." It has been stuck in my head for years and I can't get it out >.<

  8. When does Trivia Tuesday occur? Every other week.
  9. What are Twitter Wizards and Twitter Pirates called? #Twizards and #Twirates

I hope that was somewhat interesting to you. If you thought it was just a complete waste of your time but you filled it out anyways because you were bored and were like "why not?", kudos to you for making it this far and not clicking away.

I hope you all enjoyed this post and learned something new about me. Let me know in the comments how you did on the Trivia! I'd be curious to find out.

A quick reminder though, the Blogaversary Rafflecopter Giveaway along with the Drawing Contest is still going on for four more days. That means it ends on September 27th. To find out more and enter to win a chance at tons of hoard packs for both Wizard101 and Pirate101 along with a Stormrider Hare Permanent Mount, view the "Let The Games...Begin!" post.

I hope you all are enjoying the week so far and make it past tomorrow because you know what tomorrow is? Do. You. Know. What. It. Is? Guess what tomorrow is. IT'S HUMP DAY!!!! 

My goal for all of you is to get through the rest of this week and make it to your weekend with ease. I wish you many safe travels through the Spiral!
