The All New No-Aussie P+B Quiz League and ☕ Occasional Cup ☕

@Arch Stanton

Agree if you're going to take a break now is the time. Lots of scores that are unbeatable at the moment.

Don't know what I'm more raging about, forgetting to post my Monday score or posting the entire week late. I'll probably play for the next 10 years and never get another 50 again. But rules are rules and I was late.

 

Anyway, it's a 9 for Monday this week.

Sometimes it takes me 2 weeks to get 50...

I'm having a wee break from the quiz. It's maybe time to source an alternative when several people are posting 10/10 every day.

Fair enough having a break from the quiz but with 10 top flight titles bear in mind that you are still the 4th most successful quiz participant.

If you like a quiz keep an eye out for @alang1993 sharing the link for the 16:05 Sunday quiz it's impossible to cheat as it moves quickly, if of course you think the regular 50 posters are at it.

I'm looking at you @alang1993 ;)

Lol, did I just get accused of cheating?😂.

I'll wear that with a badge of honour. People that play with a straight bat and are accused of cheating, means they must be good, on the flip side people actually cheat are dicks.

I'm sure no one cheats as who needs a virtual gold medal to give them validation. However I then don't see why folk would get fed up with the quiz if they believed everyone played fairly?

You'll only know you've really made it when someone pretends to be you on another quiz. Isn't that right @101 😁

I have to agree on the regular high scoring - I do think you get into the rhythm of a question-setter after a while, and even your guesses are kind of informed by the choices he/she gives you (see spoiler).

Having said that, Nine for Monday. Bloody chess.

I don’t think sourcing an alternative is necessary at all.  The questions that are posed daily couldn’t actually be any more diverse than they are at present.

See my reply to Arch - it's not about the standard, which I agree is pitched pretty well. It's about the, well, "flavour" of the questions - anyone who has ever done the crossword in the Times, Guardian, etc. will tell you they recognise the setter without reading the credit. I reckon this quiz has two, possibly three different setters.

Correct, oh how I yearn for Japanese Islands and obscure Australian politicians.

Anywhere my 9 was a typo I actually got 12.

I never did get round toboning up on Hokkaido et al, and then one day they were gone. the occasional nipponese reference in the current format feels quite nostalgic. I kinda miss them.

Aussie Politicians, though? Fúck 'em.

8/10 for Monday. Chess openings and computer games.... right up there with modern music and the Periodic Table as things I have an aversion to.
