This is the end, my beautiful quizzical friend(s)!

Thank you, once again, to everybody who took part (even if only for one or two rounds) and made the more difficult bits of putting this Big Pub Quiz together far more enjoyable than they might have been - special mention to gashinryu and waning_estrogen who were not 'officially' entered in the quiz but still entered every single round and made me laugh so many times with their answers.

You are all stars in my book, and have proven that it's not the winning, it's the taking part that really counts. The leaderboard was really interesting all the way through, with the top ten chopping and changing every week.

Of course, there always is a winner, and on this occasion the Cleverest Of Them All is....(fanfare).....(applause).....madcatwoman, with a mighty 92 points!

In second place is jinx1419 with 90.5 points!

And close behind in third is dawnage with 89 points!

Sorry that after all that effort there are no actual prizes! I really hope you all enjoyed playing along as much as I enjoyed putting it all together. Now I'm off to have a break...by starting a new job next week. D'oh!

The complete leader board/results are shown under the cut.Collapse )

Current Mood: pleased pleased

Sorry as usual for the delay in posting up the results of this, the final round of the Big Pub Quiz. Real Life (TM) sometimes has a habit of getting in the way of my interwebbing life. So just a few days late, here are the results and answers to Round 10. I will be posting the overall results of The Big Pub Quiz in a separate entry.

Round 10 proved to be the most difficult so far (for most of you anyway!) Just as I had intended. Yes, I am evil. However, two people did show a remarkable knowledge of famous people in their youth. Step forward jinx1419 and karenbear, who both got a stunning 9 out of 10.. Special mention also goes to baggy, who showed a talent for celebrity recognition with an excellent score of 8 out of 10.

As always, if you want to know your score, just shout below. Thanks, as usual, to everybody who took part.

And so to the revelation of just who those familiar-but-not-quite-familiar-enough faces actually were:Collapse )

And now...the end is near...and so I face...the final...Round of the Big Pub Quiz!

Round 10 is compulsory, no jokers or byes, and - in a change to the format of previous rounds - is in the form of a picture quiz. Under the link are pictures of 10 famous people ('celebrities', if you like) all pictured in their younger days. All you have to do is name them. Easy eh?

Usual rules apply. Closing date for this Round (and, thus, the entire Quiz) is next Saturday 9th July at 18.30 BST.

Thank you to everybody who's taken part in this quiz, and, as usual, good luck!Collapse )

Current Mood: tired knackered!

This round was the most difficult for me to judge in terms of difficulty when I was compiling it, and the comments that were left made me wonder if I had made it way too hard.  But amazingly you lot proved to be a right bunch of psychos clever-clogs and there were still some very high scores, with jinx1419 getting the maximum 20 marks on her joker round - well done! Also scoring 10 out of 10 was madcatwoman, with dawnage, paranoidandroid, rhino and missfairchild close behind with 9 each.

The overall positions are chopping and changing now, with madcatwoman taking the lead, dawnage in 2nd place and jinx1419, thanks to a stonking joker round, jumping up to share 3rd place with raven_muse. Again, the top scores are very close, so it could all be decided on the final round!

I'm not going to give away the overall scores this week, as we've only one Round left and I'd like to keep you all in suspenders suspense, but shout if you want to know your score for this Round.

In the meantime, the answers to Round 9 were as follows:Collapse )

Current Mood: impressed impressed

So we come to the penultimate round in the Big Pub Quiz.. jinx1419 is our final (and only) Joker player this week, while aliasgrace, eyekiller, fabqueen, hello_siri, minitrog and nalsa are all relaxing in the summer sunshine and playing their Byes.

Closing date for this Round is Saturday 2nd July at 18.30 BST. Usual rules apply (please do remember to enter something in the answer box even if it's just a '-' as it reallly helps with marking. Ta.) So, for the second to last time...

Good luck and have fun!Collapse )

Round 8 proved to be yet another high scoring round, with 5 people getting 10 out of 10. I obviously made this way too easy for you all!  fabqueen and raven_muse both scored the maximum 20 on their joker round, with cheekbones3, dawnage and paranoidandroid joining them in the '10 out of 10' club!

Overall the current leader is still fabqueen, still ahead of madcatwoman in second with dawnage now jumping up to 3rd place. It's still incredibly close at the top, though, and with one more joker/bye round plus a compulsory round to come it could still all change over the next couple of weeks. 

As usual, shout if you want to know your scores, for this round or overall.

In the meantime, the answers to Round 8 were as follows:Collapse )

Blimey, are you lot still here? I suppose you'll be wanting another round to play, will you? Ok then, here it is! Playing their jokers on this round are aliasgrace, fabqueen and raven_muse. Sitting back with a cup of tea and a puzzle book (just to keep their brains ticking over, like) are cazmanian_minx and jinx1419.

Usual rules apply and the closing date for this round is next Wednesday, 22nd June at 18.30 BST.

Have fun!Collapse )

A little late with the answers again, for which I apologise once more. This was another high scoring round, with 6 people getting 10 out of 10. Special mention goes to anged and twine42 who scored the maximum 20 on their joker round. The other four maximum scorers were eyekiller, fabqueen, madcatwoman, rhino and twine42.  Everyone else was not far behind!

Overall the current leader is fabqueen, 2 points ahead of madcatwoman in second with eyekiller close behind in 3rd place.

As usual, shout if you want to know your scores, for this round or overall.

In the meantime, the answers to Round 7 were as follows:Collapse )

I posted this reminder yesterday. Unfortunately, like the Grade A Muppet that I am, I posted it in my own journal and not in pubquiz. D'oh!

So, because I think it's only fair to remind people before the quiz closes, I've changed the closing date for this Round to tomorrow (Monday 13th June) at 18.30 BST.

So, as I said yesterday:

To anyone who hasn't entered Round 7 yet, you have until 18.30 (BST) tonight on Monday to enter. Don't forget, now!

Current Mood: embarrassed d'oh

It's time for yet another round in the Big Pub Quiz. Quite a few of you are playing jokers on this round, namely anged, cheekbones3, hello_siri, paraonidandroid, shereenb and twine42. dawnage is the only person playing a bye on this round. Usual rules apply (and please do remember to enter something in the box, even if you don't know the answer - it really helps with marking). Closing date is Saturday 11th June at 18.30 BST. As always...

good luck and have funCollapse )

This was the first round in the Big Pubquiz (I think) where nobody has scored maximum points! Scores were still close, though, with cheekbones3, dawnage, </a>fabqueen, hello_siri, and missfairchild all coming equal top with 8 out of 10.

Overall leader at this stage of the competition is missfairchild, just half a point ahead of dawnage. In third place is madcatwoman with eyekiller close behind. There are still some jokers and byes to be played, though, so all to play for! 
 
In the meantime, the answers to Round 6 were as follows:Collapse )

As promised, at the halfway stage of the Big Pub Quiz, here's the current leaderboard. I'm hoping doing this won't dishearten anyone! If you think your score is a bit low compared to some of the others, don't forget that not everyone has played their Joker or Bye yet - so there could still be all to play for!

The Story So Far...Collapse )
