Themed round: years ending in 6

There were groans and looks of fear on the faces of several of the Brits who were present at the December pub quiz when I revealed that I’d pinched the idea for December’s themed round from the previous week’s episode of University Challenge. And it did indeed prove a tricky one, although two teams did manage the very impressive feat of scoring 8/10. For each question, a few events are read out which took place in the same year. All you have to do is tell me which year. And because it’s the end of 2016, all the answers end...

Quiz Results December 2016

December is almost over, so I’d better get the results of the quiz up! The last pub quiz of 2016 saw a hardy band of stalwarts in attendance, as a mere… oh, hang on, seven teams came out to bid farewell to the year. The Cat’s Whiskers once again lifted the trophy (which is shaped exactly like a bottle of fizzy wine), romping home by three and a half points ahead of Ave Not María, who thus kept Cheese & Fernet out of the prize spaces. I might have a couple of team names mixed up in these photo captions,...

Pando: the forest that’s a single tree

This is the first post of an occasional new series which I’ll be giving the snappy title Interesting Things I Found Out While Researching The Last Quiz, or ITIFOWRTLQ for short. Although it’s a bit of a misnomer in this case, because this one is more of an interesting thing I was reminded of while researching the last quiz. In Fish Lake National Forest in Utah, USA, is a forest of quaking aspen trees. Quaking aspen, properly called Populus tremuloides, is a species of tree which primarily spreads not through its seeds, but through cloning itself: essentially, what looks like an awful lot...

Themed round: riverside cities and towns

The fourth round of the November quiz was themed: each question consisted of nothing more than the names of three cities/towns/populated places, and for a point, teams had to name the river on which those places sit. In each case, the first named place is the closest to the source, and the last named is closest to the mouth – but the places named aren’t necessarily the most famous settlements on that particular river! How many can you get on your own? No online searching! The answers are at the bottom of the page, below the music video –...
