HQ Round 9: Dodgy covers

March 24, 2009 in Habitat for Humanity, Quizzes

habitat_for_humanityAnd so the end is near, it’s time to face the final curtain…

That’s right, we’ve done it our way here on the blog with our re-run of the Habitat for Humanity quiz taking almost two weeks, and all that for just nine out of the 10 rounds!

Here’s the final one. It’s an audio round: Dodgy cover versions.

It’s a simple concept, you’ll hear a clip of an unusual cover version of a well-known song and you have to say the name of the song and who’s doing this version. On the night, this round was worth 20 points as we wanted both answers for each song.

You’ll find the clips after the more…

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 Even though this one here may seem a little out of date at this point.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.

HQ Round 8: Photoshop round

March 20, 2009 in Habitat for Humanity, Quizzes

habitat_for_humanityPicture rounds can be very boring. Pictures rounds can be very samey (how many times did we see Grainne Seoige last autumn?). Picture rounds can be almost indecypherible due to crappy photocopying.

I attempted to address all these issues with this round in last week’s quiz. Firstly, the photocopying issue was taken out of play by the fact that we had our big screen in action and the pics were being shown on a loop with the round was on.  Secondly, instead of just showing you simple pictures, I hoped to get everyone to engage the brain by passing these photos through various Photoshop filters.

It worked better for some than for others! Anyway, click more… to have a look.

HQ Round 7: Sporting losers

March 19, 2009 in Habitat for Humanity, Quizzes

habitat_for_humanityAfter a slight tangent there last night, it’s time to return to the rounds from last week’s Habitat for Humanity quiz.

Round seven is the sports round.  More specifically it’s not about sporting victory, but sporting defeat. Then again, I’m sure you grasped that from the title Sporting Losers. 🙂
