Sporcle Off-Topic Quizzes of the Week- History Edition/Sporcle Contest Part 1 (UPDATED)

Welcome to the series premiere of the Sporcle Off-Topic Quizzes of the Week. Here' you'll find quizzes on anything from Movies to Science! This week's topic is one that I've long found fascinating: History. Let the games begin!

#1- Female U.S. Senators (Picture Click)
This first quiz is my personal favorite non-TV quiz I've ever made. While I'm fascinated by all of History and Politics, I'm particularly interested in the Senate. Women in Government is also an interesting topic to me, so I combined two of my interests with this quiz. While I'd love to take credit for the whole quiz, the idea to make it a "Picture Click" was the idea of Sporcle's history editor, needapausebutton. Without him, this quiz would look totally different.

#2- US Presidents
If you've only played one History quiz on Sporcle, this is likely the one. With over 7 million plays, this quiz is by far the most played History quiz on Sporcle. And in this case, quantity (of plays) does equal quality. It's a quiz that can be very easy if you're a history buff and very difficult if you don't follow the presidents very closely. Either way, you should be able to get a few answers.
My Score: 45/45

#3- Original UN Members
I'm no expert on the UN, and I really don't know very much about it. I don't even really know the current members, so this was a challenge for me. For some reason, it didn't strike me to just start naming any country until about halfway through this. Nevertheless, I still found this quiz interesting, and it gave a snapshot of the UN from way back in 1945.
My Score: 31/51

1- JB, 120 points
2- Game of Thrones PT, 75 points
3- Miguens, 53 points
4- Full Boyle, 37 points

This is the first week of the Off-Topic TVRG-Sporcle Tournament. For each week, the number of questions you got correct on each quiz will be added up. The first place finisher receives 3 points for placing first, as well. This is the same scoring system used for the TV edition, which is posted once weekly on Sundays.

For those new to the Sporcle Quizzes of the Week, or those that need brushing up, to participate, just play all three quizzes and comment your scores on each.

Scores will be posted Wednesday.
