CONGRATULATIONS to the Silver Thinker - @MI5 

and Well Done everyone. All those taking part were awarded at least one star

 

I hope everyone will take part in today`s WRQ which will be posted on a separate thread about 9.15am

with two questions on each of these categories

 

   MUSIC  GEOGRAPHY  MOVIES

 

and two "odd" questions - one on MONEY; one on SAYINGS

 

SPECIAL MENTION must be made of @Cleoriff  @MI5  @gmarkj  @WispaRed7 

who each gave the correct answer to

Q5 [HISTORY - 2] In history, what item of clothing was a mandillian ? 

Each of you have beaten Kevin Ashman, Egghead and one of the top quizzers in the world,

who was asked the question on Eggheads. Unlike the WRQ, Kevin had a choice of three answers -

cap  jacket  shoes - and gave the answer "cap" which was wrong.

You should all be proud of yourselves and perhaps mention this to family and friends at home, or out for a meal, in the supermarket, or down the pub.

Great Quiz @Mi-Amigo thanks for your hard work in setting it up.

Congrats everyone smiling

Not sure about Eggheads as that's the one quiz I won't watch. I can't stand any of the arrogant 'eggheads! Is that Daphne still there? Obnoxious woman!rofl

Re: White Room Quiz - Mon 13 July 2020

Thank you @Cleoriff . 

I`m pleased you enjoyed the quiz and I did like putting this one together - especially the "Eggheads" question, which I`ve been waiting to use for some time. As for Daphne of Eggheads - she is no longer with us, she has passed away.

 

Thanks @LukasB 

I just know you are gonna so love [or hate] one of today`s questions joy

 

Thanks @MI5 

and well done on being the only Silver Thinker this time
