Quiz Results

A big thanks to everyone who took part in the quiz. It was really close all the way through and we enjoyed the close battle as we marked. In the end there were only 2 points between the top three teams. Big congratulations to Figment who won with 86 points.

A few things we learned:

  • The Munsters stumped nearly everyone on the addresses round with only Figment getting the answer correct. Some teams said The Addams Family which I understand as I often get the two mixed up myself.
  • Other tough questions which stumped most teams were the ones on the Kohinoor diamond and China being the largest gold producer.
  • The Sicilians know a lot about Cheese or Motorway Services (or maybe both?) and got a really impressive full marks on that round.
  • The London Bridges round proved to be the most difficult round in all, to mis-quote Morecambe and Wise some teams got a lot of the right answers but not necessarily in the right order.
  • It was Jimi Hendrix and not Val Doonican who recorded ‘Castles Made of Sand’ but I would have loved to have heard that cover version.

Full scores are below. A reminder that the next quiz will be on Saturday, 29 October, 6:45pm for 7pm.  It will be hosted by Carol and Derek, who have hosted some excellent quizzes for us over the past few years.
