Maybe you will ;) but only if you submit your entry on your birthday.


No you do not!!!!

No entries so far a certain person who's name begins with "S" is usually quick off the mark, I know a royal personage who comes charging past the rest of the field late on in the race so don't be fooled into thinking I'll be okay if I don't enter until later because unlike Brexit which keeps being deferred this quiz closes on the 30th of Novwmber 2019, be in it to win it.

Suzi
04-11-19, 05:37 PM

Good because I could do with the help! (giggle)

OldMike
02-12-19, 04:18 PM
The quiz is now closed, I've marked and scrutinized all the answers but I still need to check on the answer to a question (it won't change the results) What colour is Macca Pacca in "In the Night Garden"? I suppose it depends on how you set up your TV ;)

OldMike
02-12-19, 05:34 PM
Here are the results in time honoured reverse order.

Third place our very own Princess Sparkles (Paula for new users)

Second place was Strugglingmum who made a fantastic effort but was just pipped at the post.

The winner with every question right and a grand total of 32 points (29 questions a point each and 3 points for 3 correct colours of the Luxembourg flag) was Magie


Question 23 - Macca Pacca or Makka Pakka (alternative spelling) is in my opinion (and I'm always right ;) ) cream/beige/light brown or any combination/variation thereof.

The boss lady got half a point for humour with the answer of "Words" to Question 10 - What was in the brackets in Gareth Gates' "Anyone of Us"? it was technically correct and thinking outside the box even if it wasn't what I was looking for.

A big thanks for all taking part.

Paula
02-12-19, 06:29 PM
Third?? THIRD???? Surely thereís been some mistake???

Mira

Suzi
02-12-19, 08:16 PM
I didn't even get podium? Poorest me....... Pfft.... Congratulations Magie and SM... Sorry Sparkles we'll have to commiserate together....

Mira
02-12-19, 08:18 PM
Oh sorry, I got that wrong.......... But you all did good.

Suzi
02-12-19, 08:45 PM
Lol! You best play next time Mira! As I've proven it's not about the winning, it's about having a laugh and making up... erm answering as many questions as possible!

Strugglingmum
02-12-19, 10:03 PM
Taking a bow towards the lowly(giggle)

And a huge thank you to our quiz master extradinaire. Magie....... next time......

OldMike
