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?

Scores on the Doors so far.
More expected

But tomorrow I am out visiting family and staying over so I won't be putting up any questions until Monday.

We have now done 113 days without a break so I think a rest is due. You will all be glued to the box Saturday watching the football anyway. COYI


See you Monday.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Ah, yes. Minstrels rings a bell now for me too. I didn't have that as an answer though.

3 products, one slogan? Lazy bastards. Should have taken Murray Walker's advice!!

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Treats, M&Ms and Minstrels are all Mars products ( past or present) VAR has checked and all three used the tagline in their marketing. So, claim a point if you had any of the three.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Agree, it was definitely Minstrels not Treats

Mad Dog 11:40 Fri Jul 10
Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Minstrels also had the tagline "melt in your mouth, not in your hand"

A reasonable 8 today

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
A sweet and sour 5!

Happy with that given how...

Nestlé was a Randoms guess. They own nearly EVERYTHING.
As was Germany for the Germanic-sounding Werther's.

Oblivious to blue Smarties storm. I thought it was psychologically proven blue "food" is unpopular, as it has no mirror in nature? Not even blueberries are blue. I shan't lose sleep over it, mind.

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
East - I have had Q5 in a quiz before and I think that there are two brands of sweets that have used this phrase in the past.
Just can't remember if it was the same sweet that changed its name like Snickers/Marathon

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
I really don't have a sweet tooth so not overly confident. Maybe 5? Don't know what Randoms even are, confectionery-wise. (I did OK on the APPLES!)

Re: Daily Quiz anyone?
Very generous east. I was closer than "reflection of the lakes, innit?" but not much!

Just know that pines emit all sorts. Chemicals that clean yer bog and scraping past the tree at Christmas always gives me a nasty rash. (While, that's what I tell the wife it is).
