I've been working on a game-type addon for a little while.
It's a movie quiz that asks you trivia question based on the movies in your video database in xbmc. So far I think the concept is working pretty good, but it requires you have a decent amount of movies otherwise you will probably get the same questions over and over again.
For each question you will usually see a random 10 second clip of the movie or a picture of the actor.
I have captured a video to give you an example of the game play, no audio though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fD-2E_YuCw
The source is available at github: https://github.com/twinther/script.moviequiz
There's also an install zip for xbmc: https://github.com/downloads/twinther/script.moviequiz/script.moviequiz-0.1.0.zip
I still consider this a beta version.
* It sometimes locks-up xbmc.
* The bookmark stored by xbmc is kinda of messed up after use.
* Animations aren't perfect
* Lots of other stuff
Let me know what you think!
I am considering extending it to also contain the tv episodes database.

Hey! Great idea!
-Some questions miss the actor photo (I guess this is because I havent scraped the complete cast of all movies?)
-I´d like to find out the correct answer when I get it wrong.
Good job though! I love it!

Congratulation !! Your script looks amazing, and even if I don't have a lot of movies I like it very much !!
I'm working on exactly the same kind of script, but for music. I encounter a lot of errors due to the use of a timer and a lot of encoding errors. So the addon is not usable yet.
Your gui is very cool too and I like it very much.
Maybe I will get inspired

This looks great, just watched your captured video and I´ll try it the next days!
Mabye it can be combined with the Cinema Experience addon? Instead of trivia slides the option for the Movie quiz before running the movie would be awesome

really great idea!
But one small thing:
Please make the questions translatable - I would provide the german translation.
- htpc-tac - 2011-02-04 10:44
I tested your addon yesterday shortly. It looks really good and thanks for all your effort!
Some improvments hints:
When movies are in the DB with empty Taglines the Questions are getting messed up. Maybe they can be excluded in the searchquery?
Think it´s the same for the other questions, where empty fields are in the DB.
The addon shouldn´t use parts from the beginning and the end of the movie... It´s really hard to answer the question when you only see the WarnerBrothers intro
Only use Actors where pics are available
hints for new Question types:
A konfiguration for the addon would be nice:

Wow this looks nice. Gonna try it out tonight.

Someone was quicker...damn...but making the questions translatable would be my suggestion, too...
Maybe we can play "ChingChangChong" who will translate :-)
BTW: Very cool plugin...keep up the good work...AWESOME

Thanks for the feedback guys. Really good suggestions here
I'm working on some new question type and streamlining things at the moment.
I'm not working on translation things yet though, but I might in the future, when it's more complete.

may I help you with making it translatable? If yes I would clone git and do pull requests.
One other thing: You have to put this in your addon.xml:
<import addon="script.module.pysqlite" version="2.5.6"/>
