Still think Jim's being unnecessarily harsh on himself but it's a very noble gesture - should make the title race very interesting!

Another call for hosts, the next five slots are all empty so can we have some more sign ups? I've got lots of ideas that I haven't used up in previous quizzes so I'm sure I can put something together but I don't think anyone wants me to host the remaining five weeks in a row and it would be better if there was a greater variety of hosts and quizzes.

Not sure if you saw my earlier post - I’m nervous about hosting but don’t mind doing something relatively unchallenging to put together and tried and tested like Family Fortunes (or even a Pointless Fortune mashup like there was last time).

That sounds good, not every quiz has to be challenging biggrin.gif I quite liked the Pointless Fortune mashup but go with whatever is easiest for you. Pick a week, choose your format and send a message to Wardy to let him know to add you to the schedule!

That sounds good. I've actually got something similar in mind lined up for a future quiz but if you can come up with one then go for it smile.gif just let Wardy know what week you can host it so he can add you to the schedule!

Just to confirm that I'm more than happy to pass up any compensation points from my own quiz, as I'm genuinely humbled that people took so much of their time in participating in it, whether they originally intended to or not.

I've just looked something up in a dictionary laugh.gif yeah "humbled" was too strong a word, it sounds too much like ashamed, which isn't what I meant, more that I'm very grateful and also happy that people put so much time into my quiz, and passing up my compensation points was basically a 'thank you' to those who took part.

Anyway, I might consider hosting a Family Fortunes round, but not for a few weeks, I need to come up with some more questions before committing.

Dan has offered to host a Pointless Fortunes round this weekend and we've cut the schedule from 12 to 10 weeks so there's only two more slots left if anyone wants to claim them smile.gif

Still looking for a host for the final quiz of the season next week. If no one else comes forward I can scramble something together although that would be my third quiz of the season and I'm not sure how people would feel about this, especially given that I'm doing quite well on the leaderboard and could potentially win?

I think you’re very likely to win now anyway, which will be well deserved. I’m just delighted to be in the Top 5 as it’s the first full season I’ve played. So I don’t think it matters from that point of view if you host another, but it would be nice if you didn’t have to obviously. smile.gif

I've decided I'm just not very good at these quizzes. Apart from the albums covers one where I got lucky and worked out the connection and it all came together, I've scored low every other time.

I mean... woe is me and all that... 😂

Don’t be so hard on yourself I say! Some like Pointless you need a ton of luck on and others like dingbats and anagrams suit certain brain types. Also people on here have crazy levels of knowledge - I sometimes set quizzes for work and I wouldn’t dream of making the music round anything like as hard as the one I’ve set this week, even for teams of 6! Plus I think you get better at quizzes the more you do. smile.gif

OK, I have about 8 Family Fortunes questions and I'm sure I can think of a few more by Sunday, so I can do that as the last quiz of the series.

What day/time is best for results? If it's on a Monday night I'll go with that, although with a Sunday night deadline if there's a flurry of last-minute entries, that's not ideal with work the next day laugh.gif Maybe results on the Sunday evening?

I'm 22 points clear at the top with my compensation points added, so I need to do pretty badly in the last quiz to surrender my victory... kinda nervous now because FF is always so unpredictable and some of the questions look really hard huh.gif

Well at least there are 4 of us still in contention... but realistically, 3 of us, and maybe Chris, are playing for 2nd place. The real question is whether Mangø can beat my 29.4 points winning margin from last series! biggrin.gif
