19/10/05 WithQuiz Ethel Rodin

Plenty of good questions with the now familiar format of 'half themed and half pot pourri' rounds.  Although this time round the themes were pretty evident so that the connection was just a comfort factor rather than an extra dimension to be unravelled.

68.2 Paper

History Men

Another good 'un by all accounts.  A genuine spread of topics with plenty of answers fitting into the desirable "tip of the tongue" category.

67.8 Paper

Electric Pigs

Everybody seemed to enjoy this one.  The word 'eclectic' cropped up a couple of times in the comments received.

Albert

Again a pretty eclectic bunch of questions.  In the light of the favourable comments above my own initial reaction seems a little harsh - I thought it was too much a knowledge rather than an intelligence test.  That is, there were not enough questions where, if you didn't know the answer, logical reasoning could provide you with a reasonable stab.  Like everyone else we had great fun guessing the play titles in Round 5 with puns on the name 'Fawkes' featuring strongly.

Mad Dogs

For the Mad Dogs the paper seemed uncharacteristically variable.  Some crackers - but some stinkers (who really cares or knows how old Huw Edward is?).

Snoopy's Friends

it was a pretty miserable evening:  we knew little, and, by the end, cared less.

Albert Park

"A cracker.  Plenty of variety, good piccies and some well worked themes that helped, rather than hindered, the process of tracking the answers down."

"General consensus was that this was the quiz of the year so far. Excellent spread of topics with only 5 unanswered questions."

"Absolutely cracking.  Thanks, Albert Park."

75.4 Paper
07/12/05 WithQuiz St Caths

An excellent straightforward paper of the "old school" - up to St Caths' best standards.  No themes, no nonsense and precious little delay other than that caused by an unwillingness on the part of both teams to accept that 'M' was the rightmost letter on the bottom row of the keyboard.

X-Pats

Good thematic stuff early on, but it seemed to us at the Albert Club that the effort of keeping up the themes eventually told, and led to some "below the belt stuff" towards the end.

Opsimaths

General consensus about the quiz was that it was pretty good.

"I thought it was an excellent and well balanced quiz of the classic 'bit of something for everybody' variety."

FCEK

"The best paper of the season by miles".

X-Pats also gave unalloyed praise.

75.8 Paper

Ethel Rodin

A popular quiz by all accounts.  High-scoring with a mixture of themed rounds, paired rounds and 'hotchpotch' rounds.

77.2 Paper
25/01/06

WithQuiz

History Men

All the rounds were titled but in the event only Round 7 had a theme.  At the Griffin we were pretty content with the paper.

71.0 Paper
01/02/06

WithQuiz

Electric Pigs

There were plenty of favourable comments.  Although, of course, a few boos for Round 2 Question 8, and Joe Egg.

69.2 Paper
08/02/06 WithQuiz Albert

"A pretty decent paper" with some high scores reported.

Another common bit of feedback was that the paper gave quickfire matches with no one delayed up to closing time as often happens. 

72.8 Paper

Mad Dogs

"Excellent quiz all round" was X-Pat John's verdict.  A number of favourable mentions for the narcotics round in particular - with a few individual questions attracting positive comment as well.

Snoopy's Friends

Excellent quiz.

Albert Park

"Very good quiz we thought - inventive - interesting.  Liked the paired picture first round"

"Excellent well constructed 1st round of pictures.  Cluedo round a bit weak - only 18 answers to select from.  Nice imperial measures round too.  Finally, a bit of over reliance on actors/actresses quessies."

69.6 Paper

WithQuiz

St Caths

It seems to have been a tough slog leading to lengthy, low-scoring matches.  More worrying however, with such close results, some of the answers given on the paper seemed to have been incorrect.

Others of you in your emails have made more positive comments..."The spread of questions and the inventiveness of some of the trivia kept up our interest."

54.4 Paper

X-Pats

Good solid paper enjoyed by all who've written in.  No themes in the structure but the traditional 'first half/second half pairings'.  This format usually meets with approval from all parties.

A really enjoyable quiz paper last night' was the verdict of both teams at the Stadium Of Murk.  I think our drawn match pays sufficient homage to the balance and fairness.

2 really excellent questions which would have done justice to Round Britain Quiz i.e. the paired link questions answering to Stanley and Victoria - take a bow whoever set these. 

80.8 Paper
29/03/06 WithQuiz FCEK

A 'part Bingo/part themed rounds' paper.  At the Club we thought it worked pretty well.  Results emails from other venues confirmed this view - "another popular paper".

My own favourite segment of the evening was the Dickens themed round.

66.6 Paper
05/04/06

WithQuiz

Ethel Rodin

Not altogether universal praise.  Boos for being asked to guess the ages of Henry V and Richard III at the time of their death with no leeway, but praise for the "So Long, Farewell, John Tolan" round ("very well thought out" to quote but one correspondent).

65.2 Paper
12/04/06

WithQuiz

Albert

'Good solid paper' was the verdict all round.

Many thoughts as to the QotW - which is usually a good sign.  There were favourable mentions for those dealing with the birthplace of Charles Atlas, the historic role of Cornelius the Cockerel, the Marquis of Douro and the less than tasteful advertising slogans used by Shepherd Neame. 

71.5 Paper
26/04/06

Snoopy's Friends

Lots of literature (if you can call the Famous Five literature) - with a few art galleries thrown in for good measure.

75.2 Paper

An excellent effort by all accounts.  Various nominations for QotW with the Monopoly spare and the one about Marcus Samuel and the Caspian Sea foremost.

Well everybody loved it.  A great way to end a most enjoyable season.  Good taxing questions with a reasonable balance (as the tied result proved).
