sod that, at least movies and premier league have questions actually based on the subject heading. Bin the multiple foreign language round, translation is not trivia.

If Premier League doesn't go soon then I'm out for next year.

If saintmark agrees, I'm happy to run a poll to pick the 7 categories to start 2015 with.

Can't remember the last time saintmark played the game and he hasn't posted on FISO since August.

If we don't hear from him by Christmas should we (that means you murf) come up with a revised game for the New Year?

I don't know of a better quiz site that allows this style of comp but I'm happy to reboot it on the same site so I/we have control over the categories if saintmark is permanently AWOL. Anybody know him outside of FISO? Other sites you can 'message' him on???

I'm always surprised by the scores people get on Geography - that was pretty much 10 more or less educated guesses there... :?

I would cetainly lobby for the exit of Movies and Premier league - had a look for another site but could not find one.

Given the success of Quiz up on head to head quizzes - must be a market for this.

Was hoping for a first ever podium but Fancy Dan has cranked it up a notch.

Still happy with fourth, if that is where I finish.

Not sure what your problem is there murf? Looks to me like the brains of fiso coefficient has kicked in to me and separated the wheat from the chaff.

I've stopped even reading most of those and just pick an answer straight off.

I keep meaning to stick these questions through babelfish or similar afterwards to see how close they come to the answer.

Impecable logic. Today was awful again.

Really lost my mojo, whole thing feels a bit stale. How do we liven it up??

New rounds - but all subjects have been explored (and hated)????
