It was an excellent paper to start the new season.  Your comments with the results you sent me were universally positive with special mention for the numbers questions (nominated as QsOTW below), and general praise for the battle site picture round.

Ethel Rodin

An interesting paper this week from Ethel Rodin including the first effort at a sort of 'Call My Bluff' format.  Your comments, by and large, welcomed this new format but wished a few, slightly more familiar, words had been used.

St Caths

Your comments were all very favourable with special mention for the crispness of the questions and the even balance.  Games were nip and tuck for most of their duration.

FCEK

As ever with Gerry, Damian and co. there was much of interest and some fairly roundabout phraseology.  There were certainly some revelations (such as the "died in the bog" question at 52) and some nice ideas (like the bottom 3 alphabetical clubs getting relegated at 67 - why not the first 3 alphabetical clubs going then we'd be rid of Arsenal?).

"This week we had a Bingo paper from FCEK.  A pretty tough one too."

The paper got a strong thumbs up.  "More like this please" was one comment - "a very good quiz" was the view at the Griffin. 

67.4 Paper

Electric Pigs

A good solid quiz with a number of popular questions.

71.0 Paper
01/12/04 WithQuiz Opsimaths

"We seemed to find the questions a little on the tough side - and it's true average scores were middling to low.  The dance step questions, however, do seem to provide scope for plenty of fun so expect another pair some time in the future."

"One superb paper."

X-Pats

Average scores were fairly low but reaction from around the matches was pretty favourable.

64.2 Paper

Albert

A cracking quiz with which to finish 2004 and go into the brief Christmas break.  From my point of view a sure sign of a good paper is when each score report carries a different recommendation for 'Question of the Week' - and this week there were quite a number.  My personal favourite was the one about the capital city named after the native word for 'meeting place'.

70.1 Paper

WithQuiz

History Men

This belonged to the "rat-a-tat-tat" category with straightforward questions and answers leading to a snappy quiz that was over in just an hour.

66.7 Paper

Fifth Finger

You liked the paper though not averaging such high scores as achieved on the Fingers' paper at the start of the season.

67.8 Paper

Ethel Rodin

"Just to say we were very impressed with last night's questions. Nicely cryptic and lots of interesting debris to add to the wheely bins of our minds."

68.2 Paper
26/01/05

WithQuiz

St Caths

Plenty of points on offer but some of them without too much effort required.  General consensus was that the team going second in the first half had the raw end of the deal.  Father Megson muttered something about "not so much a curate's egg as a parson's nose".

82.0 Paper
02/02/05 WithQuiz FCEK

Tough but fair seemed to be the general response.  Plenty of geography with little "Erinality" this time.

71.4 Paper
09/02/05

WithQuiz

Snoopy's Friends

There were quite a number of groans, I have to say, as well as a few "not too bads".  Too many topical news questions, as well as a whole round on the dates of births and deaths, were sources of upset. 

60.6 Paper
16/02/05

WithQuiz

Albert Park

It was in the true Park tradition - keeping their reputation as one of the best setting teams in the league intact.

73.8 Paper
23/02/05

WithQuiz

Electric Pigs

An interesting mixture.  The evening started with the 'Can you name 6 of the football teams....' pair that took about 15 minutes.  The next pair took about 30 seconds in total - so plenty of variety there.  Overall it was a fairly long evening but one that certainly didn't drag.

Opsimaths

Clearly the paper did not suit Ethel or FCEK, who both underperformed against their current league status.

73.4 Paper
09/03/05

WithQuiz

X-Pats

A good paper, by all accounts, that had a theme to the answers in each round but left you to work them out. 

74.0 Paper
16/03/05

WithQuiz

Albert

"With 19 zero questions we found this one of the harder quizzes but with some interesting questions.  The map round saw each side score 8 points but round 6 resulted in a score of 1-0!"

64.4 Paper
23/03/05

WithQuiz

History Men

All round another good paper with plenty of variety (although perhaps a tad too much Eurovision pop stuff for the taste of Mike H).

64.0 Paper
06/04/05

WithQuiz

Fifth Finger

Once more the feedback was excellent (as demonstrated by the comments above).  The Fingers have kept up a really high standard in their 3 papers this season.  Clearly the 'European Cup linked' round was popular, with some ingenious penny-drops.  I can still see Pete Taylor saying:

"Capital of Haiti?  Why it's Port-au-Prince, of course - but what has Port-au....OH!!!"

71.6 Paper

St Caths

The quality was popular and it certainly led to some good matches.

70.8 Paper
20/04/05

WithQuiz

X-Pats

The setters would have been embarrassed by the praise their paper received.  The themes were really cleverly worked so that pennies were dropping all night long.  It seemed like 2 quizzes for the price of one.  There were few giveaways yet the scores were high with plenty to be worked out along the way.

"A first rate paper.  Relatively high-scoring, evenly matched and plenty of interest."

History Men

As expected the History Men kept the season's high standards for question papers going right up to the wire.  There was much excellent knowledge-fodder to chew on.  With the General Election today it was perhaps forgivable (even by Roz) to have a good many political questions - with a particular focus on ministers who died in office!
