Annual BBC/FISO Quiz of the Year 2016

Post by morganb » 22 Dec 2016, 15:18

(Copied from the 2014 thread)

As every year of late the BBC are doing a 'quiz of the year'.
As every year I am linking to it on here
As every year they have a confusing bonus question
Lets ignore the bonus question (although can discuss it) and just count our scores each day
Like the Sporcle, just post your scores honestly on here and we'll tally it up. Highest score by the time santa comes (midnight xmas eve) wins.
No googling, no cheating, no clues, no discussing answers etc

(4 x 13 questions)

Part 1 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38393142
Part 2 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38367083
Part 3 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38393360
Part 4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38393366

(Edited as I just realised that all four parts are already available. In the past it had a staggered release - up to you if you want to binge by doing all four in one go, or not)
