Ennis Tag Rugby quiz night

June 12, 2009 in Quizzes

A rugby ball, wow!Being a young (well, youngish) professional living in an urban environment without a regular sporting outlet, it’s almost inevitable that I would end up playing Tag Rugby during the summer months.

Our local tag league hosted a table quiz for charity following last night’s programme of games, with almost all teams in the league entering a team. As we obviously had nothing else to do, our team entered three teams!

The questions were mostly* well-thought-out and the standard of answering was high.  The winning team finished up on 56 out of 60**, with my own brigade in joint-third on 54. Yes, it was that tight.

You can check out the picture round and the questions that defeated us by clicking on the continue…

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 Even though this one here may seem a little out of date at this point.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