Rules Roundup Game new format?

Hello Marilyn,

I really really like the Rules Roundup Game. But why the new format? The new format requires a user persist through an entire 36 questions (Wow!) before receiving feedback on any and all incorrect answers?

I think Rules Roundup is a more effective learning tool (at least for me) when I get immediate feedback. Additionally, I found myself playing the game more often when I could get immediate feedback. I found when I would miss an answer, I'd force myself to write down the entire question and answer on a flashcard, look up the answer in Head First Java, then review the flashcard last thing before falling asleep. Probably my weird learning style though

Lemme know your thoughts on Rules Roundup and Thank you so much for your efforts with the game.
