To be honest, I would have probably got about 20 without Gaz :S

Tonight's details are up. It's the quiz Boris Johnson definitely won't be at. See you all from 8!

Olly's is providing a round for me tonight. This could be good or bad news, depending on how much you enjoyed his previous rounds :DD

I may not be on tonight again... I may be working.

It's a good one though, I've got a job with another videographer and we've got to make a load of stop motion animations for Sylvanian Families so I may be locked in a dark studio until Christmas.

Oh, that sounds fun. Will We be able to see the results somewhere? Maybe you’ll turn into the next Aardman productions

Hopefully I'll be able to share them... Not yet though as we're filming some super secret new lines of Sylvanian Family!

I can't say much but think Malibu Stacey and her new hat....

New lines? Ooh, that is exciting*. Will these be for adverts or Youtube promo type things?

*I mean, I assume so. I don’t know anything about Sylvanian Families or Malibu Stacey (which I had to Google. My knowledge of Simpsons lore is below par).

I believe they're going to be used at various trade shows over Europe for the next year or so.

Hopefully they'll like what we do!

I’m sure they will. I love stop motion. It just feels okie it’s made with so much love. I was so happy when they made the new Clangers series stop motion. And I still adore things like the old Cosgrove Hall Wind In The Willows. I bought it again on DVD recently.

Darwin has made a few stop motion animations using an iPad app if you’re hiring? :D

How awesome! It makes my day even more relevant to your interests. The centre of Groningen has a large building with library, tourist info and exhibitions. I got the combined ticket today, which gave me hours playing games in the Game.On! exhibition (Space War up to VR), and then on to Storyworld, which is all about making comics, games and animation, with a section dedicated to stop motion animation, and some Aardman exhibits.

Thinking of doing a big old quiz of the year. Wondering if people would be up for it? I would do all the rounds for the night.

Thinking 28th to do it, if people are interested? Or would 4th of Jan be better?

Sounds great, even if this year has only been three months long.

Either date is fine for me - I suppose it's a question of how Christmassed out people are on the Bank Holiday Tuesday.

The 4th Jan would be better for us as we have Chloe the week before. But we'll still be around, so definitely go with the majority. :)

This sounds absolutely excellent, for sure. No idea where I'll be on either date - slightly more likely I'll be back in the UK on the 4th, but who knows? So either date for me.

If you want to know why Kern and I both went for Ethiopia rather and Ghana in Ollie's Flag round, then this might give you a clue?

Totally different! Colours in the wrong order, and what's that weird blue thing?

I totally understand, I guessed Ethopia first as well, lol

It was a very good round. Some tricky designs in there. I'm pleased my guess of Malta paid off.

Great fun last night, thanks everyone.

I'll be there! I got tonnes of quiz stuff for Christmas, as such I will be using some of that as source material for my round(s). I'll do my quiz of the year round next week if that's still okay?

Also, a Classic FM list of 10 English composers.

Definitely check out Tallis, gorgeous stuff.

Reading that list, I never knew Delius was from Bradford.

I'll be there, but my brain is all addled from the pain/painkillers. I really struggled to work out that 6 hot dog rolls was not enough for 8 hotdogs, and how many would be left after giving 1 to Pauline, 1 to Raven, 1 to Owen and 2 to Seb. I just couldn't work out it last night, so god knows what I will be like in a quiz.

I do have a (just 1 at the moment, with 1 under construction) round though.

This week, I have part 2 of my quiz round from last week (someone remind me to fact check the years!) however, I have bought a party game pack, which has some interesting games in it (I bought it for the murder quiz round, but a couple of other rounds might work too)

Would people be interested in trying a round or so of this?

They are designed to be played with a handheld device, but they just need a web browser, so whatever is easiest I guess.
