Super quiz - and nice to see new participants too, get some competitive spirit going here - heaven knows, the Tuesday Word Hunt Diamond game brings out the FFF in everyone, never mind the rats and drainpipes 🤣

Great questions, @Mi-Amigo. Thanks very much.

 

My cabinet is filling up with Red Thinkers slowly, need to get some Bronze and Silver in there.

 

Also, very appropriate for Marcus Rashford to be born on Halloween, seeing as he likes feeding children for free 😆👏. Must be a treat man over trick.
