Yep, I've sent round zero to a few friends to try and figure out. Then I remembered that they'll never get number 2!

I'll be honest, we probably wouldn't be able to make much later as our brains are fried by 10pm normally. But feel free to try different start times to see if different people are able to join, by all means; it would be good for those who are otherwise unable to attend.

Jem pointed out last night that by allowing the music round to be used as the Joker round it potentially gave an unfair advantage to people that chose that round just because there were basically double the points on offer anyway compared to the other rounds.

Didn't think that one through, my bad.

Removing the double points from those that chose it didn't have any real impact on the final result though, the top 3 were the same, and Ross would have dropped two places - other than that, no difference.

Might run the same quiz (probably minus the video games stuff) with my work colleagues later in the week!

Besmirched! I demand a recount!

If this kind of carry on, carries on I might just end up taking myself elsewhere! Perhaps next week I can talk arcade machines with Malc's daughter? She doesn't seem the kind to dock me points.

Someone asked last night if I had a busy day planned for today. At the time I had one known call in Wakefield, but by the end of the day this was where I'd been: Rico at Salford to collect parts, M1 South near Wakefield for a card reader swap, Stanley,Wakefield to replace two printers, Huddersfield to replace a card reader, Whalley Bridge to fix a receipt printer, Chappel-en-le-Frith to replace a 'touch computer,' then back to Salford to drop off faulty parts. 163 miles in total. Lovely day for driving through rural Derbyshire.

That's a lot of travel, but I bet it was gorgeous on a day like today. I know that area very well. And you didn't have to go through Ashton at all!

Sorry I missed it... It was a combination of the girls going to bed late and me forgetting what time it was that sent my whole evening into disarray.

I'll be back as normal next week all being well.

I wasn't even sure they were a thing. I just had Wurzel Gummidge in my head and "Wurzels" sounded like it was a name I'd heard at some point in the past ;)

And I came next to bottom AGAIN, despite getting !00% in the Wurzels round.

But stlll a great quiz, carried out in good spirit despite some disputes about the answers to some questions.

Important to remember, IT'S ONLY A GAME. :DD

It's not a proper quiz if someone doesn't dispute an answer at some point ;)

In our local it basically just comes down to "what I've got written down here goes, no ifs, no buts".

Yeah, but no one spat out their dummy, it was all settled with appropriate courtesy.

However, if there'd been a valuable prize at stake ...........

Hey everyone. Just a reminder that we're doing it all again tomorrow (Tuesday). This week's quiz is written by me! I promise it won't all be about the American Civil War and bears.

Details etc to follow.

If "fancy dress" means "in your pants," then yes, it is.
