Do you enjoy playing games that challenge you and require you to think creatively? If so, you'll probably love The Impossible Quiz, which blends trivia, logic and brain-teasing fun into a game that has some pretty unique solutions. This popular classic has been making the rounds online for years now, and it's gained a reputation for living up to its name. But despite what the title may have you think, it is possible to solve The Impossible Quiz. Before you try your hand at it, read up on everything you need to know for maximum success.

What Is The Impossible Quiz?

Some call it the hardest quiz in the world, and others confidently stare down the questions with glee. In either case, The Impossible Quiz is a challenging brain game that tests users about a variety of subject areas. It’s a single-player game that groups and families can also collaborate on to answer the questions — although there's some mature language throughout the game. Parental discretion is recommended if there are any younger players thinking about taking on the challenge.

The Impossible Quiz was developed by English game designer "Splapp-me-do" and initially released as a 30-question demo in 2004. The designer continued working on the quiz over the years and released the 110-question version in 2007, with an iOS version released in 2009.

How to Play The Impossible Quiz

There are multiple web sites that host The Impossible Quiz, and you can find it in Apple's App Store or Google Play if you want to attempt this feat on your mobile device. At face value, it's just a game with questions and answers. But to win, you'll need to use some serious brainpower. Questions are peppered with tricks, puns and double meanings, proving that there’s more than meets the eye when it comes to solving this quiz. You'll also find mazes and games within the game as you go.

The rules? You get three lives, one of which you lose every time you make a mistake. Once you lose all your lives, the game is over and you'll need to restart it. To win you need to complete the 110 questions in a single session, although you might get some assistance along the way in the form of skips, which you earn as you go. But if you encounter a question with a bomb, beware. You only have up to 11 seconds to answer, and if the bomb goes off, your game is over.

Ready to Solve The Impossible Quiz? Here's How

The number-one thing to understand before you start playing is this: You’re going to come across some seemingly impossible questions. You’ll need to use serious logic, sometimes twisting the questions around a bit to find the right answers. Take your time when you can (the bombs require fast thinking) to work through your answers. If you rush through, you'll likely use up your three lives faster than you think.

Consider possible puns and jokes that could be associated with the question or answer. You'll find them throughout the quiz, along with pop culture references and intentionally misspelled words intended to create bad jokes out of the questions.

Don’t be afraid to be very literal. Sometimes the right answer is so obvious that you might not think of it at first. For example, if a question tells you to "click the answer," you’ll likely pore over the four answers to figure out which one could be right — when what the quiz is asking you to do is click "the answer."

Keep track of your wrong answers and guesses. If you end up having to start over because you’ve lost all your lives, you’ll appreciate having a head start on the questions that tripped you up before. Likewise, consider asking friends or family for help.

If all else fails and you decide you no longer want to solve the game on your own, there are multiple websites that offer walkthroughs and answers. Solving The Impossible Quiz is a challenge for sure, but you can complete it with time and creative thinking.
