With the new limited quest set out, I thought we could share hints inside this thread.  I'll try to keep this first post up to date with hints about each quest. 
 
If you have any hints, reply to me so I will get a message in my inbox.
 

"Kick Off" Hints

 First Step:
  •  It's two words, one is the people living on this continent, the other is another word for a winner.
  • The continent is NOT North America.
  • According to the wiki page, this game was released on PC, Atari ST, and Amiga.
 
Second Step:
  •  "It's time to Kick Off!"
  • The game was on ZX Spectrum, Amiga, Atari ST, and Amstrad CPC.
 
Third Step:
  • It's sensible to search for this.
  • Remade on XBLA and released in 2007.

Fourth Step:

" Also, I really thought the 1st Pre-Game one was gonna be 'vuvuzela' ... I was even smiling as I typed it in and saw there was a page for it, but no dice. Would have been funny. "
lmao same man. I was like BOOM but then..aww :(
#7 Posted by monkyofdoom (101 posts) -

Yeah, I can't figure out the 1st Pre Game one either

#8 Posted by AlwaysBeClothing (1469 posts) -

I always hated vague hints with multiple answers.
HERE I GO!
Possibly will edit with more as I finds them/are requested.
 
Kick off #4 - The most obvious thing you would search for (american term)
 Pre-game#1 - Something you would receive after winning

#9 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -

Pre Game 1: It's something you'll win if you are the winner in the World Cup. There are two pages - one is a special version of this item that is exclusive to this one event.

Hah. Same here. But I refuse to let that keep me from completing this quest!

Orange Slices #1 In this EA made Football game you never have to stop play for a car.

@monkyofdoom:  It's two words, one is a continent, the other is another word for a winner.
#28 Posted by takua108 (1479 posts) -

Woot, #10 to finish. #2 for Capri-Suns' first name is a brand of model...trains... maybe? I think?

#36 Posted by ChristianCastillo (1178 posts) -
@icytower38: damn, inside the Kick Off set?
#37 Posted by Manhattan_Project (2155 posts) -

"Kick off" clues not helping. Anyone have any others?

#38 Posted by s7evn (1072 posts) -

" @ ChristianCastillo Kick off #2 is give to you within the quest set "
You legend! 
 
Thanks for the help guys, I'm 31st.
#40 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19335 posts) -

"Kick off" clues are really not doing anything for me.  More specifically, #3 (what the hell?) and #1.

Same here.  It's not a very good hint for stupid people like me.
#42 Posted by Manhattan_Project (2155 posts) -
@AaronP: Is the clue in the "Kick Off" set or in another one?
#43 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19335 posts) -

The hint for #3 (It only makes sense...) should be put at #2, or something like "the answer's right in your face".

You have to do it at the start of a match, the first touch of the ball.

as in the "Kick Off" which I've tried but no success
#47 Posted by AaronP (74 posts) -
@Manhattan_Project: The clue is in the title of the Kick Off set.
#48 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19335 posts) -

Done at #45. 
 
Hint 1 for "Kick off" should be slightly modified: it's not directly the name of a continent that's the first part of the title of the game, but the noun that describes the people living on that continent.

#49 Posted by Manhattan_Project (2155 posts) -
@AaronP: Fuck!!!! I feel like an idiot. Thanks.
#50 Posted by Vager (1654 posts) -

I have no clue what the Konami franchise is. I tried the obvious one and that doesn't seem to be it. 
Am I not looking at the right page or what?
