HOW TO PLAY

Each round will consist of five questions.
There will be at the very minimum 4 possible answers for each question.
PM your answers to the quizmaster who set the round of questions.
You have 2 days to in which to answer a round. Because there is a round each day rounds will overlap.

SCORING.
If you are the only one to pick an answer you score 10 points, if you select the same answer as someone else you score 5 points.

The topscorer/s for each round receive a point. The person with the most points at the end of the round is the monthly winner.

Quote:

ROUND ONE

1) One of the Harry Potter books
2) A country that shares a land border with China
3) An element of the Periodic Table that is named after a real person
4) A husband of Zsa Zsa Gabor
5) A track off Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon"




Answers will be posted on Saturday and tomorrow's round will be run by Lothruin (I think).

But I think the bigger question now might be: Where did you find the homework assignment?

The homework assignment was found in the fridge!

Not a place I thought of looking. We only found it when my husband decided to make himself a coffee. My son must have placed the book down in the fridge when he got a drink of fruit juice out.

I'm probably early on this but I'll post Round 3's list for Saturday now. We have all the way until Moday to answer so if I jumped the gun, no harm done .

1. Name one of The Ten Commandments.
2. The ill-fated Tsar NicholasII and Tsarina Alexandria had some equally ill-fated children. Name one of them.
3. The space shuttle "Challenger" exploded after only 73 seconds aloft in 1986. Who was one of the passengers that died?
4. What is a German word for one of the days of the week? (Only 7 choices there...)
5. Who was one of the cast members ("The Not Ready For Prime Time Players") that was on the very first season of Saturday Night Live? (any original cast member will do)

See you all Monday .
