Re: White Room Quiz Mon 10 May 2021

Thank you @Cleoriff

Pleased you like the look of this quiz.

 

I thought that the WORDS questions might appeal to the Dogs Of Word who usually take part in the Word Hunt Diamond game on Tuesdays; and tried to find a mix of subjects for the other categories.

@TheresaV 

Sorry you feel you won`t be getting a Bronze Thinker this time but maybe a couple of guesses might be some way towards it Thinking ?

 

@TheresaV
