The old musicals masquerading as history questions problem rears its ugly head again. Not that I'm bitter or anything.

Fucking 5!!! :x

Damn I really thought I had it yesterday!

Today's - well I got a decent score on a hard bloody quiz, through a little guess fu but a lot of racking my brain. Betting that better times will knock me down the rankings again today...

Don't think so, Snowy, think you'll be the king of the castle today with 9!

I was very pleased with that - I did really have to rack my brain to remember Shakespeare plays I haven't read in best part of 30 years.

Argh, first question I read as "second best-selling" for some bizarre reason, shouldn't do this so soon after waking up :cry:

Good score for the first time out, good to have another person involved :)

As our token American participant you will have a considerable advantage too, as us Brits don't know anything about baseball or American football and their players, let alone where said players went to college and other seemingly baffling details :)

I've played fantasy football since 2006 but outside that I dont pay attention to many sporting events outside Houstons more important games, in the thread i made repping the astros i said they lost the first two games of this world series when they had actually won game 2, but well see what kinda questions they have.

and todays game looks like ill end up in last, completely guessed on two of my wrong answers and i think i got cheated on the ant one!

That sounds like me every day. Guess most of them and still feel cheated at the end. :lol:

The soundest piece of advice I've gathered from this thread (thanks sly!) is that if the answer is 'all of them' or 'all of the above' or words to the effect then that's the answer to go for regardless of the question.

It works approx 95% of the time. I've found a couple of occasions when it hasn't and fallen afoul of it, but generally it's correct.

Balls! After a rare fine showing from me yesterday I managed to make a proper arse of it today. Typical.

My first day with the 9/10 was a fluke apparently hah. Sitting in last for today's match.

Is there a way to look at the pervious days scores once that game is over? Didn't see anything pointing to it
