This Week in iQ Trivia – 16 January 2021
Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.
If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.
You lot are apparently pretty good at a lot of unusual things.
I can name 17 Roman Emperors
I can tell the difference between butter and I can’t believe it’s not butter
I can play music by ear
I can roll my tongue
Best Procrastinators… will tell you why tomorrow
We come up with the best team names
Drink driving (which we DO NOT endorse)
Winning Trivia (which we DO endorse)
Things we’d like to see in 2021
Radical Pili-Pala (Welsh for butterfly)
We had a guess that the Supremes were led by Bob Ross. That would have been a very different band!
Another team who had chosen Fun With Flags as their special subject racked their brain but couldn’t recall the country that had a flag identical to Haiti’s, so they answered with “oh crap, I looked this up and now I can’t remember!”
One team got too clever. They answered a question about 2001: A Space Odyssey with “David Bowman”, but we asked for the name that was blanked out, which was Dave. Strict, sure. But when it comes to a tie breaker, that can matter.
And we had to break a couple of ties. One came down to the spelling of Patton Oswalt versus Patton Oswald, and one came down to providing the additional information of the last name of Elaine Benes rather than just Elaine. Sometimes it really does get that close.
See you next week.
