It’s not often that you can pin down which question in a quiz is the hardest. Over the course of a few hours, the questions asked at the start of the quiz fade away from your short-term memory, being replaced by their more recent counterparts.
Not so on Tuesday night last, when I attended the weekly quiz night in Gilligan’s, Claremorris. Question 1 it was. The very first of what would turn out to be 104 questions. I doubt anyone in the room got it right. That said, the team whose answers we were marking did manage to get the first names right so perhaps I’m being quick to judge.
After that, things got considerably easier. The winning team’s final score of 92 points making this pretty clear. My team trailed in second, on 88.
