If your answer to Q10 is correct, then you`ll get a trophy @Cleoriff 

but I`m sure you`ll want to have a go at getting a Thinker Thoughful

- Gold Thinker for 10 correct answers; Silver Thinker for 8 correct answers; Bronze Thinker for 6 correct answers;

Red Thinker for 4 correct answers.

I`ve tried to give a mix of categories with some easier and some not-so-easy questions, so there might be a case of some having to have a bit of a think about some of the questions Thinking.

Good luck, everyone.
