Results of 20 Questions Quiz.

Ian Welham on Eggheads.

Just been informed by Ian Welham that a team in which he is a guest will be on Eggheads on BBC Two at Six pm Tuesday 16th January.

UPDATE - If you missed it live it is worth a look on iPlayer to see Ian in action. Do you know what type of product was the first ever to have its bar code scanned? Ian knew, watch the program to find the answer.

European Quizzing Championships

The event has just finished and full results can be found on the web site http://www.europeanquizzingchampionships.com. For watchers of Eggheads, The Chase and Mastermind there are many familiar names in the top 10 from the individual event. Egghead Pat Gibson was the winner. Ian Welham finished 121st out of the 199 entry, an excellent result considering the quality of the field. Playing with Gareth Aubrey, Ian finished 19th in the pairs event out of 99 pairs. This event was also won by the Eggheads in the shape of Pat Gibson and Kevin Ashman. Looking at some of the sample questions from previous championships makes you realise that this is a different level of quizzing. Well done Ian!


Harry's Notes

Division 1
Rasen. 86. Quizlings. 55
Surplus Rowdies. 82. Serendipity. 51
Nemesis. 75. Apostles. 80

Division 2
Belligerent Fools. 60. Bux Kwiz. 66
Woodentops. 93. Magic Robots. 84
Midori Desu. 53. Swats. 85

This season continues to provide some shock results. The two Title favourites in Division 1 seem to be doing their best not to win the ultimate prize with current champions Nemesis slipping up to a third loss against Apostles to almost surrender the Number 1 spot to Rowdies, who showed no mercy to a 3-man Serendipity. Rasen had a surprisingly easy win over Bill Mercer's Quizlings who have been enjoying one of their best seasons for many years.

In Division 2, Swats had a lot to spare against the unfortunate Midori Desu and took over the leadership from Magic Robots, who went down to the much-improved Woodentops. Bux Kwiz returned to form with a narrow success over Belligerent Fools in a very good-humoured contest.
