Thank you everyone. An amazing 13 people took part in this quiz.

 

I hope everyone enjoyed this White Room Quiz; and will join in next week`s WRQ quizzes.

As Breanna`s WRQ 4th Anniversary thread shows, there have been various "themed" WRQ over the years.

I  thought it would be fun to have two "themed" quizzes next week which we have not had before

 

Mon 07 Aug - "Dreams"-theme WRQ... [idea came my signature having "dream" in it]

Wed 09 Aug - "Record Breakers"- theme WRQ....

Each will have 8 questions, but I`m not going to say what the categories will be. You`ll have to wait and see. 

 

Thank you everyone for taking part and making the WRQ fun.
