Quiz Night January 2015 (and December results)

Possibly the hardest BA Pub Quiz ever closed out 2014, with Axel Quiziloff bouncing back from finishing second-last in November to win the last quiz of the year. There were respectable showings all round, in truth – don’t pay too much attention to the scores, the questions aren’t normally as hard as they were this time! The next quiz will be on the 12th January, 2015, in our normal venue at La Cigale in the Microcentro. Read on for more details on how you can get your 2015 off to a trivia-tastic start! The rules, if you need reminding of them: Three rounds of 10 general knowledge questions, one alphabet-themed round of 25 questions Teams of up to 6 people allowed AR$15  per person Prizes for the winners and runners-up The quiz will take place on Monday, 12th January, starting at 7:30pm at La Cigale: 25 de Mayo 597 (corner of Tucumán).

Apologies for the lack of team photos – there was a mix-up with what could and couldn’t be deleted from my camera memory card shortly after the last quiz, and I lost them all before I’d put them onto my computer!

Quiz Results November 2014

The long delay in posting last month’s quiz results is due to my only just having recovered emotionally from a right old ding-dong after a quiz that will be remembered for, no doubt, years to come. Just one-and-a-half points separated first from third by the end, as newcomers What?! missed out on a fizzy wine spot after a brave but ultimately futile attempt to guess Aristotle Onassis’ first name during the third round. Cat’s Whiskers eventually emerged victorious, edging out Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass. There was an extra round in November, to make up for having had to cancel the October quiz, so the alphabet round was moved to round 3. Team Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Round 5 Cat’s Whiskers 10 18 43 53 62 Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass 10 19 43 52 61 What?! 10 19 43½ 51½ 60½ Axel Quiziloff 8 16 40 48 55 Bob! 6½ 15½ 35½ 44½ 48½ My apologies to Bob!, who do not feature in the photos below because I don’t appear to have a photo of them on my camera’s memory card. Not sure how that...

Quiz Night December 2014

The end of the year draws in, the temperature rises, and the festive period approaches. But before the midnight asados and that awkward feeling the following morning that you’ve eaten a bit too much for a 45ºC day, why not come and do some exercise to help keep in shape over Christmastime? The brain is the most important muscle, so come and flex yours at the December BA Pub Quiz in La Cigale! Monday the 8th is a bank holiday, so this month’s quiz will be on the 15th. The rules, if you need reminding of them: Three rounds of 10 general knowledge questions, one alphabet-themed round of 25 questions Teams of up to 6 people allowed AR$15  per person Prizes for the winners and runners-up The quiz will take place on Monday, 15th November, starting at 7:30pm at La Cigale: 25 de Mayo 597 (corner of Tucumán).
