HQ Round 6: Youtube round

March 18, 2009 in Habitat for Humanity, Quizzes

habitat_for_humanityOn we go with this recreation of last Friday’s Habitat for Humanity tablequiz.

Round six marks a first for the blog as we brave the Web 2.0 and present you with a video round.

On the night itself, these clips were played one at a time, with the competitors being asked two questions on each video. Yes, that’s right, this was the first of two rounds where 20 points were up for grabs. Anyway, for the purposes of the blog, I’ve combined the clips into one video, with the questions posted underneath.
