Welcome to

white-room-quiz2.png

 

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

Each White Room Quiz will have eight questions - with two questions from four categories. 

 

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 everyone likes some, if not all, the questions in this quiz

Today`s WRQ questions are two questions from each of these cateories

 

    WORDS  MOVIES  GAMES

 

and two ODD questions - one on FLAGS and one on CODES

 

Please note: there is no QI-style question [where the answer is not what most people think] this time.

Also, as some found some of the recent questions harder, four of the eight questions are classed as

"easier" in the quiz books I consulted in compiling this quiz.

 

TODAY`S EIGHT QUESTIONS

 

Q1 [WORDS - 1] What is a demonym ?   

      

Q2 [MOVIES - 1] Which official Bond film was the first to feature Timothy Dalton as James Bond ?

                                     national flag ?

 

Q5 [WORDS - 2] What is vexillology the study of ? 

 

Q6 [MOVIES - 2] Which 2010 movie had the tagline

                              "You don`t get 500 million friends without making a few enemies" ?

 

Q7 [GAMES - 2] In darts, what is the highest possible score with three darts, with each dart in a different "treble" ?

Thanks @Cleoriff for your comments... 

 

and here was me thinking that with four "easier" questions, this one wouldn`t be so difficult...

 

Good luck, everyone.
