Had a drink at my favourite bar, The Tumba, every knows that, so spelt Kings Bar incorrect. I'm only human.

I don't think Gooligan quite understands that having more than 4 in a team means there is a possible unfair advantage without handicapping of some sort...



Of course the biggest handicap is not knowing the answers....



BTW, We did enjoy the tuna-pasta bake last night.....





We played the Christmas Quiz at Five Fingers on Saturday and were up against teams of up to nine! We two and our two kids on our team...one of whom wandered off with the owners' son to play. There was no handicapping and we still managed a creditable second place... We had good fun too.. Next year I'm going to get a team of ten up... ;)



Good luck to you both for Christmas have a great time...

Norma Jean,how does the handicap scoring work?

The team that came joint 1st was demoted to 3rd because they had 5 players.

If a team had only 3 players how does that affect the final scoring?

Not being confrontational but it would be handy to know for future quizzes.

The optimum team size is four, any more than that and you have to outscore the teams of four... less than four is no advantage... the quiz is aimed at teams of four getting together... but Paul and Marilyn realise that sometimes an extra bod wants to be on a team and so they allow it but put a handicapping in place to even things out... It's fair don't you think?

PS if you turned up for University Challenge and found your team was up against a team with an extra player what would you conclude?

Wicks,



I don't know the answer to that one, which fortuitously did not come up on Monday night!

Norma Jean post 1 why do you think you have to post that sure some would do it down, nobody said anything bad, or was this your sad way of being protectionist, the 'get our dig in first syndrome' in that case your last two words may well apply to you

BTW the quiz on MONDAY night was reportedly a hoot keep it up.

lol
