Thank you @MI5  @Cleoriff  @pgn 

I hoped that the regulars would find this Halloween White Room Quiz was a good mix of easier and not so easy questions - with a couple of head-scratchers Thinking

Thank you @Anonymous 

As said, some questions do need a bit of thinking about but there is plenty of time.

Good luck.
