La Cigale was packed to the rafters for the July quiz as no fewer than eight teams descended to lock horns in a battle of minds. With a tense fight for first place throughout, the teams who were most cautious in the final round – which was a wipeout round (one wrong answer = zero points for the round) – ultimately came out on top, with Cat’s Whiskers again claiming the title after pipping The Mind Mountains (though special mention should be made of Pun Nation Under Pun Groove, who finished third with just two players). Team photos and the scores are right here – see you all again next month!
