So are they up against a team of bards then? :? :shock:
'Bardophiles' suggests they're all fans of Shakespeare in one capacity or another.

*Tube Challengers on TV klaxon*

Only Connect tonight on BBC 2 (20:30).

The 'Tubers' (including Jack Welsby) take on the 'Bardophiles'.

Slightly niche quizzing, but well worth a look.

Re: Berlin U-Bahn challenge?

Andi How did you get on in September? I'm guessing from the lack of update on the Guinness website that you missed out? I'm off to Berlin in March and, given that my original time was less than 2mins slower than the current GWR, with lots of room for improvement, I may well give the record another s...

Re: Berlin U-Bahn challenge?

We did it: Guinness World Record for the Berlin U-Bahn Challenge! It was actually some time ago (2nd May), but it took us a while to edit all the evidence needed for Guinness to confirm the record. Time: 7:33,15h. Start: Rudow. Finish: Hönow. We experienced some delays and missed connections, also ...

Re: Berlin U-Bahn challenge?

Congratulations! Sorry to hear about the missed connection at Oranienburg - what do you reckon your time would have been had you made it? How did you manage the other less-well-served stretches like Strausberg-Strausberg Nord, Zeuthen-Königs Wusterhausen, and Blankenburg-Hohen Neuendorf? Where did y...

Re: Fifteen to One

I downloaded the application form when I first heard about the remake, and threw it straight in the bin when I saw that the first question/instruction was to 'attach a photo of yourself which illustrates your personality'.

When I were t'lad, quiz shows were about knowing things, not being 'quirky'...

Re: Rare entries quiz VII - Cricket

Um. I didn't come last? :/ With the Northants answer- the only thing I can think of is sticking with football tradition in which Division One isn't the top division. But I entered this so long ago I can't remember what I was thinking. Well let's just say you came last out of the participants who ac...

Re: Rare entries quiz VII - Cricket

Sorry for the lateness of the results of this one... the joys of working all the hours God sends! But without further ado... 1. Name a venue that has hosted a test match during an Ashes series hosted in England. Correct Bramall Lane - 2pts (DrainBrain, jbom) Edgbaston - 2pts (Tractakid, greatkingrat...

Re: Rare entries quiz VII - Cricket

Only two entries so far... I'm most disappointed in you all! As it stands there's no real point in closing the quiz just yet, as the two entrants will be tied on equal points. So I'm extending the closing date indefinitely at this point until I get some more entries in! You don't need to know anythi...

Rare entries quiz VII - Cricket

Given that the cricket season is once again upon us, with the excitement of the first Ashes test at Trent Bridge a mere 47 days away, I thought I'd test your knowledge of all things cricket... Usual rules apply, and all questions refer to Mens' First Class Cricket unless stated otherwise. Closing da...
