Massive thank you to all for making the first edition of Lounge Quizzes '15 such a success, a much higher turnout than I'd have ever expected with 63 people (plus myself) submitting a set of answers! Now it is time to reveal your answers and find out who our pointless champion is ohmy.gif

A quick reminder of the questions:

1. Name an album that reached #1 in the UK in 2014.
2. Name a capital city of a country in South America.
3. Name a current moderator of one of BuzzJack's genre forums.
4. Name a Pixar feature length film.
5. Name a king or queen after whom a Shakespeare play is named.
6. Name a studio album by Madonna.
7. Name an artist who has won the BBC 'Sound of...' poll.
8. Name a country which lies on the equator.
9. Name an artist who performed at the 2015 BRIT Awards.
10. Name a country which participates in the Ashes.

Stay tuned over the next hour ~

05: Royal Blood 'Royal Blood' - liamk97, AntoineTTe, Doctor Blind, THEO., LexC, O Mie

Incorrect answers:
63: Kendrick Lamar 'To Pimp A Butterfly' - Cremey
63: Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds 'Chasing Yesterday' - Kath
63: Shania Twain 'Come On Over' - Atonement

Starting off with the question with by far the most possible answers, so quite a few Pointless answers, including albums from major stars such as One Direction, Pharrell and Take That plus the comeback album from Pink Floyd. The two biggest albums of the year, 'x' and 'In The Lonely Hour', are both high point scorers due to the ~double bluff~ method but the most popular answer here (which I remind you is the WORST answer to have picked, sorry if my layout is mildly confusing ;o) is the self-titled debut by rock duo Royal Blood, who apparently a few too many people thought would be obscure enough to be pointless.

As much as I hate to mark an answer of Kendrick Lamar incorrect, his album hit #1 this year rather than 2014, as did Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. Understandable errors. I'm not sure what Atonement was thinking though - a #1 album yes, but over a decade out!

Collectively all but 5 of the correct answers were given. These lot would have been pointless if answered as well:

alt-J 'This Is All Yours'
Bombay Bicycle Club 'So Long, See You Tomorrow'
Ella Henderson 'Chapter One'
George Ezra 'Wanted On Voyage'
Paolo Nutini 'Caustic Love'

The most surprising inclusion there being George Ezra. Apparently all the 'vote for the obvious one' people went straight to Sam and Ed and forgot all about poor George. Also, Ella Henderson is bound to be dropped now etc.

YES! I had a good feeling Pink Floyd would bring me home a pointless, what with it being in the middle of Q4 and not talked about much here. *.*

Goal one of the evening reached already.

I can't decide whether to put Pointless answers at the top or the bottom. Halp.

Off to a decent start cheer.gif A bit of a random one getting the most answers. Not too obscure to hit the double bluff method and not too well known to be an obvious one for those that didn't google. I sense triple-bluffing afoot.

Not the best of starts but I'm fairly confident for this round! I was stuck between Ben Howard and The Script so I'm glad to see that both would've given me the same score.

That's why I've gone for the little-known tactic of quadruple bluffing.

Which has no consistent method and depends on how many answers there are for each question.
