HQ Round 10: Friday March 13

March 23, 2009 in Habitat for Humanity, Quizzes

habitat_for_humanityI know what you’re thinking. “Surely there can’t be any rounds left from the Habitat for Humanity quiz?!”

Well, I’m afraid you’re wrong. And there’s still one to go after this! Even though this one here may seem a little out of date at this point.

To explain, this round was originally called On This Day, as it is based completely on questions to do with Friday March 13 (the night of the quiz). As it’s now Monday March 23, I’m worried that this ship may have sailed. Oh dear.

Anyway, click the more… if inquisitiveness, or an obsession for completeness, compells you.
