Game: Quiz

Postby Kalah » Jan 10 2006, 17:13

The game is simple: I ask questions, you try to find the answers any way you can, and send them to me via PM. Here's the first round:

1. Which German officer came up with the idea of creating so-called "pocket battleships" to fool the Versailles treaty and still create a strong naval force?
2. What is my first name?
3. Who made the first motorised flight?
4. Who lifted the Danish king Erik Plogpenning's siege of Lübeck?
5. What snack did ScarlettP make and send to Ethric?
6. Who played Baldrick in the Blackadder pilot?
7. In which country does Psychobabble live?
8. Which nuclear missile would you buy at Harrods?
9. Who succeeded Hitler as commander of all German forces after the Führer's suicide?
10. How many games are allowed on the Round Table?

You have about a week to send me the answers.

Tempted to participate again, but I think I'm too lazy. I'd just end up with the lowest score again.

btw, Kalah's first name isn't Kalah? 8|

Ahhhh shucks! I'm a question. I'm so flattered that Kalah still loves me.

Or at least no longer hates my guts.

I know the answers to several of these, but will have to pester some friends and hit Google for the rest.

Well, there's about five days left..

You can do like Scarlett and send in the answers you've got. Then you can send revised answers when you've had time to think some more. I will accept answers until I post the correct answers here.

Yes... None of us want to relive the "I forgot to send my answer" fiasco that befell Ethric during the Survivor game that launched the 6 month fued. (WHICH, by the way, I won.)
