Daily Quiz anyone?
If you are stuck at home and bored like me.
How about exercising the old grey cells?

I have for a number of years run quiz nights and couple of times a year. I was due to do one tomorrow which is now cancelled So I have a bank of questions sitting in my computer's hard drive. They are quite eclectic in their nature.

I am thinking I could put up a set of questions for which you write down your answers. After 30mins or so I will put up the answers. DO NOT POST YOUR ANSWERS. before I post the right answers.

You mark your own answers and post your score.

I will then record the scores and at the end of the "lockdown" we will see who is WHO's brainbox supreme. Obiviously no looking up the answers (you only cheat yourselves)

Word of warning these won't be easy questions as they have been devised for teams of six. Forming teams on here might be too problematic. So I'll try to pick out the easier questions.

Any interest?

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Nine for me. Like others totally driven by the link, until the penny dropped with that struggling on four. Also had on the "board" for the freemason question, better than on the "game" which was the first shout.

Yep all 10.

I was trying to add "mate" to your "checking" post.

It was tenuous at best and not that funny.

8 - I'll take that, but the link helped. My Mason's might enquire Are you on the "move"!! :-)

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
8 here.

Didn't know the Freemason one, so guessed at 'on the board' (which kind of works).
And couldn't think of the Kipling one.

Like Mad Dog, it was a three before I got the link.

Sadly, my knowledge of Mr Kipling's books is exceedingly bad.
