I am taking the Rules Roundup Game. I have taken the first few sets (set = 36 questions) and do not want to take them anymore. But I cannot spend more than a few hours at a time. So everyday when I start the game, I have go thru the first few sets that I have already gone thru. Is there a way for me to skip sets and move on to the next set? Otherwise I spending a lot of time just answering question I have already answered.
Thanks
Mahesh

It's not supposed to start with the same set each time, although that seems to be a recent complaint. There is no way to skip sets that I am aware of. Have you tried the beta version (link on the game's page)?

Hmmm. That's a new one. May I ask what browser are you using? Which OS?
