The blog’s first Quiz Challenge ended on Friday evening last and I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to enter. I did my best to reply to everyone promptly with their score but, if it took a little bit longer than you expected, I’m sorry for that.
I hope everyone liked the format of the challenge. The thinking behind it was this: if I’d simply posted 10 questions, I’m sure I’d have gotten several contestants scoring 10/10. This is the era of google and all. So, as every answer has several possible questions, this format brought a little touch of lottery to the whole thing.
And so it turned out as no-one scored higher than 7. I then had to co-opt the services of my good lady wife, who did her duty by randomly picking one of the six contestants who had reached that score. So congratulations to Pearse Ward from Dublin whose name was first out of the hat! A copy of Trivial Pursuit will shortly be winging its way to his house.
