More questions wanted

We've got over 1,500 questions for the trivia game, but I would like at least another 1,000 and we're particularly short of a) classic arcade games and b) early console games, including Atari 2600, Intellivision, and Colecovision.

Please send them in .xls or .ods format in the following format:

[difficulty][question number][question][answer][multiple choice options][correct multiple choice answer]

For example:

[easy][1][On which planet is the game set?][Chiron][1=Hermes;2=Vesta;3=Chiron;4=Eunomia][3]

[easy][2][How many factions were added in Alien Crossfire?][7][1=5;2=6;3=7;4=8][3]

And so forth, where each set of brackets [] indicates a spreadsheet cell.
We need 10 questions per game, 4 Easy, 3 Medium, 2 Hard, 1 Expert. Easy questions should be obvious; anyone who has played the game should be able to get them right. No trick questions!

Please also provide the following information, either in the spreadsheet or in the email to which it is attached:

Game name
Platform(s)
Genre: (action, adventure, strategy, rpg, sim)
Decade: (1980, 1990, 2000, 2010)
Year
Developer
Publisher
Designer name (if known)
Your name (for the credits)

If you know an old school game well, send in the questions!

Do you have a new list of the games that you already have questions for?

I'll do Dragon's Lair and Space Ace if you want classic arcade games.

Any good, playable versions of either of those available?

The best is probably the Dragon's Lair: 20th Anniversary Special Edition, released by Digital Leisure Inc. in 2002. It includes Dragon's Lair I/II and Space Ace. The games have been visually remastered and are authentic versions of the original games. Previously cut scenes are included and are playable.
