Round 6 Results

Just 6 players this time.

1.Name One of The First 12 (Out Of 27) Things Mark Twain Would Rescue In The Event Of A Boarding House Fire!

For 10 points:
Second cousins, Nieces, Cripples, stepsisters, the unclassified.

As much as I really liked the answer of alcohol it wasn't on the list. Heck, it was likely what caused the fire to begin with! And in looking at it, did anyone get a chuckle out of #27 on this list? Too funny, really. The Unclassified are up there at #12 but mothers-in-law came in dead last in priority.

2.Name A Conspirator Either Hanged Or Imprisoned In 1867 As Being Part Of The Abraham Lincoln Assassination.

For 10 points:
George Atzerodt & Dr. Samuel Mudd.

For 5 points:
Mary Surratt (2) & Lewis Powell (aka Lewis Paine) (2)

3. According To Fodor's Travel Guide (2004 Edition) Name An Editor's Pick As One Of The Best Places To Dine In Paris

I had to stick with Fodor's list here but all the restaurants mentioned have been rated very well. Fodor's only picked 9, though.

For 10 points:
Les Elysses du Vernet & Alain Ducasse

For 5 ponts:
Le Grande Vefour(2)

2 answers didn't hit Fodor's list but, as mentioned, are fine places indeed. So I had to disallow Le Cinq and 7eme Sud.

4.Peppers/Chiles With A Heat Index Rating Of 8 Or Higher.

This one got tricky as there are a surprisingly lot of lists that rate the heat of peppers! But...

For 10 points:
Yellow Wax, Pequin Chiles, Scotch Bonnet

For 5 points:
Habanero (3)

5.Name A Hand That Will Beat A Mixed Suit Straight In Standard Poker.

For 10 points:
none

For 5 points:
Full House (4), Four Of A Kind (2)

Winner's List

1. ozzz2002-45 points

2. JaneMarple-40 points

3. ElfTwinkle
helen295
spanishliz- all 30 points.

6. beaker411-25 points [I added a few points to our new player beaker just because I loved the alcohol answer and doing so won't mess up the final scores.]


Congrats, ozzz! One point for you. And thank you all for playing!

ANSWERS TO ROUND 11

Question 1 - a pope of the Twentieth Century

Worth 10 points
John XXIII

Worth 5 points
Pius XI (2), Pius XII(2), Benedict XV (2), Paul VI (2), John Paul 1 (2)




Question 2) Any person who has appeared on an Australian bank note since the introduction of decimal currency in 1966


Worth 10 points
Caroline Chisholm, David Unaipon, Edith Cowan, Mary Reibey

Worth 5 points
John Flynn (2), Queen Elizabeth II (2), Banjo Patterson (2)

We also had one answer of Sir Edwin Elgar but I think he was a British musican.


Question 3) A cast member of the movie 'Harvey' (actor not character)

Sorry, I didn't realise there was more than one movie of this name. Everyone did however realised that I meant the 1950 Harvey.

Worth 10 points
James Stewart

Worth 5 points
Charles Drake (4), Wallace Ford (3), Cecil Kellaway (2)

We had one person who didn'y answer.


Question 4) A novel by William Morris - not a short story or a translation.

Worth 10 points
House of the Wolfings, The Well at World's End, The Water of the Wondrous Isles

Worth 5 points
News from Nowhere (4), The Wood Beyond the World (3)

I would have liked to give 10 points for 'The Earthly Paradise'. Unfortunately it doesn't fit the question as it is a very long poem not a novel. I wish I had excluded poetry as well as short stories and translation. I should have especially as I know Morris's works quite well. I am very sorry about this.

Question 5) A video gaming system

Worth 10 points
Playstation, Playstation2, Sega Genesis, XBox, Dreamcast, Virtual Boy, Game Boy Advance SP

Worth 5 points
(Magnabox) Odyssey

I had to disallow iRiver iFP-795 as it would seem that this is a digital player/recorder/radio and not a gaming system. I also had to disallow Nintendo as Nintendo made several Gaming systems (including Virtual Boy and Game Boy Advance SP) and therefore Nintendo really refers to the company rather than the games system. I would have accepted Nintendo 64.However if you think I am wrong about this let me know.
