    Default Nyder's Fiendish Festive Quiz 2013

    It starts on Sunday - I do believe that's the 1st December. What an opportune time to start an advent quiz.

    More details coming soon ..... stay tuned to this thread.

    Christmas is coming, as it is so often wont to do. Let's see if I can get a single question right this year!
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    I'm feeling confident! (IE: I've got no chance) But at least this time, I'll make a guess at every question I attempt.

    That's the spirit Dino & Steve! There's more Who questions this year (well it is a special anniversary!) Plus there are prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd places, so there's everything to play for!

    I'm warming my brain up ready.

    I've just got my handcuffs and my truncheon and that's enough.

    First place prize this year:-


    a whopping £20 in Amazon vouchers. If you don't spend it on Who goodies, I'll send Davros round.

    2nd place prize:-

    The Official BBC Who Calendar 2014 - it's got all the Docs on this one. If you're thinking of buying it, no need - you can win it here!

    And for coming 3rd you get:-

    Nyder's Mystery Prize....

    Default Da Rules

    Well it's quite simple - I ask a question, you answer it

    But the goldenest of all golden rules is:-

    Don't post your answer on the thread, PRIVATE MESSAGE ME

    You are competing against each other, which is why it would be a bit foolish to put your answers where all can see! But feel free to post as many red herrings as you like! Answers to the questions (including a selection of delightfully duff responses) will be posted the day after the question. I shall try to post as early as I can to give you as much time to answer. Answers to all weekend questions (Saturday and Sunday) will be posted Monday. With me so far??

    Default Da Jokers

    You are each allowed 3 jokers which you can play on certain days. This will make the correct answer worth DOUBLE points to you. Whoo-hoo! You can either select your Joker days in advance before the quiz starts, or play your Jokers anytime up to when the question is posted. Playing jokers is entirely random as you don't know what sort of question is going to be asked. Jokers are allowed on the following days:-

    1st
    2nd
    3rd
    8th
    11th
    14th
    16th
    17th
    18th
    20th
    23rd
    24th

    All the other days are "bonus" days with lots of points up for grabs, so it would be unfair to allow jokers on those days.

    You can either publicly announce when you're playing the jokers (i.e. on this thread) or you can sneakily do it in secret (via Private Message to me). I will announce when a Sneaky Secret joker has been played, but not who by. Otherwise it wouldn't be a sneaky secret.

    Are you SURE you're still with me?

    Crikey. First the plot of Ghost Light, now the rules to the Christmas Quiz. I'm sure life used to be a lot simpler than this...

    But suppose I meet my future selves who persuade me that it would be better for me to not not play my joker but to play it when I didn't wouldn't have done ?

    Lol indeed :-) As with most quizzes and games, it's far simpler just to start playing!

    OK, I'll take the plunge (and put the pressure on early ) - I'd like to play my jokers on the 8th, 14th and 23rd please

    (I'm feeling lucky, coz I got 3 numbers of the Euro-lottery this week )

    Duly noted Jon. Thank you. That's what I wanted to know. (I'll never get tired of saying that!)

    Default Day One

    Thank you Dino!

    So here we are - Happy December! No-one's playing their Joker for this first question, so we'll plough straight in. And we kick things off with a Who-related sound clip. If you're having trouble accessing SoundCloud then PM me your email address and I'll send it to you that way.

    For 1 point - name the story!

    Don't forget - PM me your answer - not on the thread!
