Thank you @TallTrees and @Cleoriff 

Yes, a couple of not-so-easy questions this time - with the Games questions from my new quiz book.

Good luck.

Ok, so Ref do not disqualify me but I called in reinforcements and me and Mrs S have put heads together for this one.

 

Sitting on the sofa and just finished watching Reacher on Amazon.  Time to answer the quiz, so have roped in the wife to help me and see if between us we can achieve better than I have done previously.

 

So here goes, still what was going through my head, not sure what was in hers apart from Spenny ...."Your geography is really bad".  Also forced her not to pick up her phone and Google, cos what would be the point, spoils the fun.

 

1. Hmmmmmmm……….no further than this hmmmmm

2. Blaming the Mrs S for this answer  😊

3. No Idea….really…No idea.  Bet if I hear it I will know it

4. Never noticed……how have I never noticed that….Got a 1 in 4 chance…

5. Guesssssing again

6. We both did science back in school

7. Not sure I got the title right but I can hum it for you if you like

8. Played Scrabble a few times but not enough to count the letters...is that a bit like counting cards???
