Thank you @Cleoriff 

Sorry your brain is hurting reading the questions.

tbh mine hurt searching for Halloween/31 Oct related questions 😂 but was also fun...

I think that, with a little thought, some of the questions are not quite as difficult as they might seem at first.

Thank you @gmarkj 

I take it from your post that you might find some of the question a bit tougher ? Maybe a guess will pay off - as it has for others in previous WRQs ?? Good luck.
