Done gone done made a quiz

Post by Ben Wilson » Tue Nov 25, 2014 9:53 pm

Behold. 9 rounds covering 9 different topics (well, okay, 8 topics plus general knowledge). Feel free to have a go but don't post answers publicly- I'll be happy to verify anything privately.

7MB so may take a while on primitive connections.

Here's the extended edition director's cut with commentary and extra rounds. Here's the pdf especially for Gevin- http://www.nebagram.co.uk/quizxmas/quizdirectorscut.pdf - but that doesn't have either of the music files in it.

Edit: Also, as it's now after Christmas (well, near enough), there's no longer a moratorium on sharing answers/tips.

The 2016 edition of the quiz is in production as we speak. The basic version (which I completed last night) currently weighs in at 21 pages and the pdf is about 1.5MB. The extended version will be a bit longer and will contain audio files (which I'll probably just link to on YouTube). Then there'll be a director's cut, and an extended version of the director's cut. Some rounds might require card, scissors and glue.

The folder on my computer where I've saved all the raw data/research files for the quiz currently weighs in at 1.2 gigabytes. :D

And it's done. Illness has kept it from being as long or as mental as I would have hoped. But here it is anyway- http://nebagram.co.uk/2016QuizExtended.pdf or here- https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/60… ... tended.pdf -if the first link doesn't work. Enjoy. :-D

Looks like the sort of thing I didn't pay much attention to by the time I turned 40 (i.e. fifty years ago). :geek: ;)

Answers will come once I've finished compiling them, which will probably be around the new year.
