Snoopy's Friends

It probably fitted more into the 'let's have a chat about it class' than the 'either know it or don't' class.  A bit of a clanger on Barefoot in the Park being written by Paul Simon rather than his less musical brother Neil, but overall plenty to debate.

General feeling was that it was a pretty fair paper.  Certainly the scores seemed fairly high.

"Good, well-levelled, fair, but difficult (for everyone)."

The paper covered a fair swathe of knowledge and formats of question.  From 'spot the motorway' to 'name consecutive dictionary words' to 'name a year in the life of'.

Brains of Oak

As is the custom the bingo style was used with 8 pictures scattered across the paper to liven things up.

"Overall the standard was excellent as we've come to expect from Gerry and co."

Albert Park

They chose 'the mother of all quizzes' as the theme - no doubt thinking of the upcoming sortie against a Mr S. Hussein of Baghdad which, indeed, may kick off on Mothering Sunday.  It was a fine assortment of questions ranging from the 'fascinating facts' variety (e.g. the origin of the phrase 'back to square one' - Round 5 Question 2) through the downright obscure (e.g. Estonia's President - Round 7 Question 7) to the 'what on earth are they on about' category (e.g. the 3 guitarists in Round 5 Question 6).  Along the way were some stunning pictures which win my prize as best piccies to date.

"The 'Mother' theme, perhaps, wore a little thin - by Round 4 we were successfully guessing the answers before the questions had been asked!"

The scores seemed fairly high and there were no great quibbles so I think the setters got the questions roughly right.

General reaction was an interesting but pretty difficult first half with much easier questions in the second half.

A good 'straight down the middle' paper.

SWMCC

It was a pretty mixed bunch: some questions to which I would be very surprised if anybody in South Manchester, yet alone the quiz league, knew the answer (e.g. Round 8 Question 6: Roy Rogers' real name), whilst there were some real gems (e.g. Round 2 Question 1: Which TV character was based on Donald Sinclair?).  Although the Crossword round is not to everybody's taste it gets good marks from most.  The pictures too were good'uns - especially that one of Bob Dylan looking at death's door.  Marks too for innovation for starting what could be a trend: questions about consecutive dotted letters (Round 7 Questions 3 & 4).

Gerry has long had a good reputation for entertaining and balanced papers.  Comments from the teams this week reflected that view with aggregate scores well up in the 70s and 80s.

Competitors gave some pretty good commendations for this week's paper.

76.7 Paper
28/05/03 WithQuiz SWMCC

"An excellent botanical round (Round 7) with real specimens carefully pinned to cards - I fear the front gardens of Chorlton have taken a hammering on our behalf."

"Another really good SWMCC crossword round (Round 4)."

"So, as you can see, it was a real feast from the sublime to the ridiculous to the downright unfair.  The main enjoyment factor for us was the anticipation in seeing what was coming next.  Although the aggregate scores were on the low side, and the paper took a while to get through, I think it earns 10 out of 10 for fun."

55.5 Paper

Yet again we had an excellent paper with many tough, tip-of-the-tongue teasers to tantalise the teams.  It was, as ever with the Brains, presented la Bingo.
