You really really don't like simple :P


The simple version wasn't as much fun as the way I have done it, this scoring system was the easiest way of making it fair (other wise you would have been dividing by 4.7 or something silly like that)

Who's collecting the scores because I think I've just finished working out what I got on Malc's round.

Shazbat! I think I under scored myself on that round. In fact I know I did.

I have come up with a concept for a quiz round, that will be so much work to make, but I think possibly even more work for the scorer!

You'll have to wait and see come Tuesday!

It's really quite impractical to do for an online quiz, but I am somehow going to make it work!

I've just play tested my quiz round, with my eldest son and he thinks it's far too complicated and needlessly difficult, so it's going to need a few tweaks I think.

Presumably it needs tweaking to make it more complicated and needlessly difficult?

Second play test with my youngest son, he thinks it's a really good idea, really enjoyed it, but said it will be hard to mark though!

Sounds perfect to me!

Yep! Although exploring is a good term as doing anything is an adventure these days.

I've set up a meeting and selected "join before host". Have no idea if this will work or if it allows screen sharing but give it a go.

Normal service will be resumed next week. Might even do a round.

Ooops. Just checked and this setting isn't on the main meeting set-up page but under "Personal - settings" so I didn't catch it yesterday. Will remember this for future such sessions!

Not to worry, we set up a rogue meeting so Malc could baffle us with his beautifully crafted rounds.

The Vision, if you get asked about more weddings, it seems workers don't count as the 15.

We've been proper struggling for time to put together that full quiz over the last week - we may be able to get it all finished up this evening, but it may be wise for people to have a round for a mish-mash quiz as a backup ;)

I have a round or two

One of them I think we will be really good, but might work best as part of a full quiz, rather than a stand alone round (just because it would either be a super high scoring round, or people would end up with 0.1 points for an easy answer)
