"One idea is to have something like duplicate backgammon where each player has to make his or her play in a given position. Magriel does something similar where each player gives his or her play for the first 20 rolls of a game (10 for each side) and then the total equity loss is compared. This makes it similar to a quiz but without the additional quiz factor"
This does have some flaws.
1) Suppose there are two openings that are really close such as 43. A player who does play B may not know his 3rd roll replies after playing play A. This hurts in the quiz but is not a concern in real life. More generally a player may be better playing a game in his own style.
2) Suppose a player chose not to double and the game is actually doubled. He may lose the chance to make repeating errors in the quiz format.
3) In a real game you need to follow up your own strategy not someone else's. (maybe this is same idea as 1).
4) Clock use is not really incorporated.
5) Playing opponent is totally removed.
