"A good solid start" seems to sum up the feedback.  The catholic spread of subject matter was to everybody's taste.

2 FCEKs

"Top marks for the variety and interest of the questions and there were only 4 zero point questions in the whole game."

"As ever a superb effort from 2FCEKs."

69.3 Paper

WithQuiz

Napier Girls

A pretty mixed bag veering towards the hard end of the scale.  Some devilish picture questions (negatives of celebrities) and a last round that seemed very much weighted towards the team that went second in the second half.

Opsimaths

This paper proved to be a pretty tough challenge with average, to below average, scoring.  The most controversial point of the evening came unexpectedly in Round 6 (Question 4) when Mark persuaded us that 'Punt - Punter - Puny' was as good an answer to the quest for 3 consecutive dictionary words meaning a means of transport, a trick and meagre, as the official one given in the paper.

Albert Park

This week's offering was generally received as a bit of a curate's egg with effusive praise from most quarters for the picture rounds, but general condemnation of the quotations round.

 A few moans about the low scoring nature of the quiz but no major complaints.

With an average aggregate score of only 55.5, this was the lowest scoring quiz this year. 

"A good stiff challenge".

Some very positive remarks about the paper have been received,

X-Pats

By and large this paper suited the teams.  They were particularly complimentary about the carefully crafted themes.

66.3 Paper

Snoopy's Friends

A relatively low-scoring quiz (average aggregate 55 point) from Snoopy's Friends with a few long, involved questions.

The paper has received universal acclaim and I think it is only fair to thank Gerry for his excellent (and high scoring) paper.

73.2 Paper

Electric Pigs

The paper produced 3 extremely close games as well as some good scores.

74.8 Paper

2 FCEKs

The paper got a pretty good review.  Plenty of imaginative challenges to set the grey matter buzzing.  Only big boo came from Kieran (amongst others) for the awful Borat question (Bingo 17) which gave up half way through by suggesting that the team with the least wrong answer should get some points.

Napier Girls

Some good material and an excellent picture round that got universal praise.  Personally, however, I'm not sure they executed their themes satisfactorily.

73.3 Paper
07/02/07 WithQuiz Opsimaths

"Generally excellent - we were getting caned at half time (we went second first) and then it reversed in the second half so a very well balanced paper."

"High scoring and most questions were at least guessable so a thumbs up."

Themes led the paper with gettable general knowledge playing a distinct second fiddle.

61.3 Paper
21/02/07

WithQuiz

History Men

A toughie with average scores on the low side but by no means the lowest of the season.  My take was a pretty challenging set of questions, but the challenge was fun and, by and large, accepted.

66.3 Paper

Ethel Rodin

Down at the Albert Club we worked hard to squeeze out an aggregate total of 59 points.  However the interest never waned and I don't think any of us felt cheated.  'Tough but worth the effort' summed it up for me.  Not a bad example of a quiz that shows why copying questions out of The Million Best Pub Quiz Question Book is not what we're after on a Wednesday evening.

53.3 Paper

WithQuiz

Albert

Aggregate scores were on the low side and first bits of feedback are not altogether favourable.  Kieran commented that in the Napier Girls/X-Pats match there were 20 questions unanswered out of 64 - which is too high a proportion.

59.3 Paper

WithQuiz

X-Pats

An excellent paper according to reports received so far.  It was well balanced with a sprinkling of brainteasers and a lot of 'tip of the tongue' stuff.

62.5 Paper
21/03/07

WithQuiz

Snoopy's Friends

It was, again, a pretty tough paper - the aggregate scores speak for themselves. 

However comments received indicate that there was plenty of interest in the subject matter tackled - at least in patches.  Perhaps too many questions on food, and multiple groans for the clearly manufactured rubbish about peanut butter in Round 5.

58.5 Paper

A really enjoyable paper from a master-setter (albeit a retired Yorkshire one).

77.2 Paper
04/04/07

WithQuiz

Electric Pigs

No problems on the whole.   A reasonable set of aggregate scores .  The first 2/3 rounds seemed distinctly tough to me but then it eased off.

70.8 Paper
11/04/07

WithQuiz

Opsimaths

Aggregate scores were middling but good signs in that there were a number of different nominations for QotW.  The Pigs thought the Picture Round too one-track whilst the culture vultures from Ms Rodin loved it; Ethel and co. thought the 'First lady to...' pair were not much fun, whereas the Girls and FCEKs voted 'em top notch.

67.2 Paper

WithQuiz

Albert Park

This was one of the best papers of the season in my book.

"An excellent paper - the themes were well executed (unlike last week!!) so that it was relatively easy to establish the theme after the first pair of the round - and the pictures were very well produced and just the right level of difficulty."

Excellent!!  Good aggregate scores (best yet in the knockout competitions this year) and loads of variety and cogitation.  I noticed a much greater than average "oh, I know that.......just a minute, it's on the tip of my tongue" moments than usual.

"The themed rounds (Rounds 3 & 7) were well executed and I particularly liked the gobbets of poetry in Round 7."

End of Season

It took the form of the usual Albert Club end of month quiz evening with plenty of sound, pictures and technology (which worked almost glitch-free).  One of the rounds was based on questions selected at random from the website archives for 2001/2.
