Welcome to

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

Today`s White Room Quiz is one of the popular "Odd Questions" editions.

Instead of the usual 8 questions with 2 questions on each of four categories, today`s WRQ is 8 questions with one question on each of these subjects 

- POSTCODES   CARS   MAPS   SLANG   MOTORWAYS   MEASUREMENTS   CURRENCY   CLOTHES

 

The White Room Quiz is open to all members.

Those wishing to take part must pm me - @Mi-Amigo  - their answers between 12 noon today [Wednesday] and 11.59pm tomorrow [Thursday].

I hope our regular quizzers

Well that was a good quiz, all thinkers! Well done all, and thanks @Mi-Amigo 

Btw, Q8, had it not been qualified, was going to get a couple of trout thrown at it 🤣

Thank you @Mi-Amigo 

Not too bad ~ Motorway one was difficult for me as I know the M62 very well especially in a snow storm! Coming from Manchester got turned round and sent back!  It can be very windy and this was a blizzard.  Thought Leeds was nearer.  Anyway thanks for the quiz and for taking the time to mark my answers.

Well done everyone
