Since the White Room Quiz began on 1 August 2019, the quizzers have faced a variety of questions - some "tricky"; the occasional QI-style question, where the answer is not what most people think; and questions which quiz books rate as "easier", which some quizzers have found difficult.

 

Some of the White Room Quizzers have correctly answered a question which Paul Sinha, ranked No 17 in the World Quiz Championship, got wrong on ITV`s The Chase; correctly answered a question which one of the country`s top quiz teams got wrong on Ch 4`s The Hardest Question; correctly answered a question which Kevin, Mastermind Champion, got wrong on BBC TV`s Eggheads; and correctly answered the question which Judith Keppell correctly answered to become the first person to win £1million on ITV`s Who Wants To Be A Miilionaire.

 

Now, to celebrate the 100th White Room Quiz, there is a chance to be awarded the Platinum Thinker.  

 

I am grateful to each and every one of those, past and present, who have tackled some, if not all, of the White Room Quiz questions.

I hope our regular quizzers

   

   @Cleoriff   @pgn   @jonsie   @MI5  @gmarkj   @Anonymous  @Martin-O2  @LukasB   @TheresaV
