I personally don't think I'll be doing in for this quiz as I've looked at the questions and history and geography are definitely not my strong point but I will follow the thread and good luck to everyone who joins.

Hi @Cleoriff 

No, there is not a QI-type question [where the answer is not what what most people think] this time but a couple of questions are a little bit tricky and some might need to think about them...

Look foward to pm with your answers.

Good luck

Thanks @LukasB 

Be interesting to see how you get on with the King question...

As for "Space", this has been one of the most popular categories with White Room Quizzers...

Good luck.
