White Room Quiz Mon 18 Jan 2021

[ Edited ]

Welcome to

white-room-quiz2.png

 

There are two White Room Quizzes each week - one on Monday and one on Wednesday.

 

As last Wednesday`s quiz was the White Room Regulars` Choice Quiz, I thought it might be fun to have a follow-up.

Over the weekend, I researched and found eight questions - with one question on each category which either did not receive enough points to be in last Wed`s WRQ or received no votes at all - so today`s WRQ will one question on each of these categories

 

   MUSIC   GEOGRAPHY   NATURE   HISTORY   PLACES   TV   GAMES   LITERATURE

 

The White Room Quiz is open to all members.

Those wishing to take part must pm me - @Mi-Amigo - with their answers between 12 noon today [Monday] and 11.59pm tomorrow [Tuesday]

 

I hope our regular quizzers

 

  @Cleoriff  @pgn   @jonsie  @gmarkj  @MI5   @WispaRed7   @Martin-O2   @LukasB  @TheresaV   @Marjo

Re: White Room Quiz Mon 18 Jan 2021

Thank you @MI5 and @Cleoriff 

I`m sure having kids and grandkids might help with one of the questions yahoo

That said, there are a couple of head-scratchers Thinking this time, one of which I had hoped to include in Wed`s Regulars` Choice Quiz but the category didn`t get enough votes joy

As to Q1, yeh man - a little bit of a hippy trippy question for a Monday morning Spaced
