    You didn't think I'd have a year off did you?

    Looking forward to it...it's one of the highlights of the year!*

    Unfortunately my aspirations lie more in the region of not finishing last rather than being near the top of the table though...

    *Edited to add: that's if you can count a daily dose of frustration, puzzlement and mental torture a highlight at any rate! Bring it on!!!

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

    So just a brief reminder of the most important rule in the Universe ever - send your answer to me by Direct Message - don't post it here on this thread!

    This year's thread is now stuck to the top of the Picture Gallery in anticipation.

    I'm still recovering from the managing to submit answers every day of last Advent and that some of them were even correct answers (although the least said about the tie break the better ).

    I am really hoping to get one question right this year. At least one!
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    Don't worry - I'm planning to take part again so that spot's taken!

    OK, I think last year I was too shagged out from coming home from an outsourced Argos call centre job to commit properly. I think the year before that I had connection issues.
    This time however, this time there will be NO MIS-TAAAAKESSS as the monsters from the seventies would say!

    I look forward to locking horns with you all! It's a lovely December challenge!

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

    In the past there have been slightly more Non-Who questions compared to Who questions. This year it's a 50/50 split. Whether that helps or hinders you remains to be seen!

    As ever you have two jokers (one Who, one non-Who) you can play at random which will get you double points if you get the question right. You can play your jokers on the following days:-

    Who Joker - 1st/3rd/10th/11th/13th/19th/20th/24th

    Non-Who Joker - 2nd/5th/6th/9th/16th/22nd

    You have to nominate which day you'll play your joker BEFORE the question is posted for that day (which will usually be just after 7am).

    Be lucky with your jokers

    I suppose that will depend on the questions...

    OK, I'd rather risk answering wrong and losing than playing a Joker on a day where I know the answer.
    So... Brave/Stupidity alert! NO JOKERS for me this year! All or nothing! Let's go for it!

    50% Who questions... this really will sort out the true Gallifreyans from the Shobogans!

    Obviously the quiz master's decision is final but surely playing jokers is compulsory whether you like it or not?

    Jokers arenít compulsory - but they are very annoying if you play them on the days where you get it wrong, and donít play them on the days you get it right. Itís the old jokers curse/allure dichotomy

    What was last year's mystery prize after all? I remember there being a tie breaker.
