Welcome to the 5th Lounge Quiz of 2015: Pointless! (again)


This is the first ever topic I've made in The Lounge - although I hardly ever make topics anywhere on the forum so this is a big moment! ohmy.gif

So here are the rules of this game perfectly explained by the lovely Bré, it's a shame his BJSC entries aren't so lovely.

"Below is a list of 10 questions. All you have to do is PM me (Ryan.) a correct answer to each of those questions. The STRATEGY~ comes in the scoring system - you will score 1 point for each other person who sends in the same answer as you (as long as your answer is correct - an incorrect answer will score you the maximum number of points possible, i.e. one less than the number of entrants. You'll want to avoid that).

The aim of the game is to score AS FEW POINTS AS POSSIBLE. Now in the real version of Pointless this is achieved by answering the most obscure answer you can think of. However, on BuzzJack, where you have Google to sniff out the most obscure of the obscure answers, it becomes a game of double triple quadruple etc. bluffing - do you go for an obscure answer, do you go for an obvious answer because you think everyone will go for the obscure answer, do you go for an obscure answer because everyone will go for an obvious answer thinking everyone will go for an obscure answer... where does it end?



I won't be giving out any bonus points just like Klumzee, so it's all fair game here! Now for the questions:

01. Name one of the 12 months in the Gregorian calendar.
02. Name one artist that has been #1 in the UK Official Singles Chart in 2015.
03. Name an "island country1" with a population of above ten million people2.
04. Name a team taking part in the current 2014/15 English Premier League season.
05. Name a contestant that finished in 4th place in any series of The X Factor that was aired on TV in the UK.
06. Name one of the 7 political party leaders that took part in the ITV Leaders' Debate on 2nd April 2015.
07. Name a square number smaller than 200.
08. Name one of the 16 countries that will perform in the first semi-final of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.
09. In reference to countries1, name a capital city that begins with the letter N.
10. Name a Buzzjack member that finished in the top 11 of BJKO 20153.

1 Countries must be sovereign states recognised by the United Nations.
2 According to July 2014 estimates by the World Factbook.
3 Nelly didn't make the official top 11 so unfortunately he isn't a correct answer for this question.



The deadline for you to send me your answers is Tuesday 5th May at 6pm BST. Results will then follow the following evening I hope!

Since there doesn't seem to be much logic in Pointless with all the double bluffing I'm going to think of a few options for each question and let random.org decide, see how far that gets me laugh.gif

Island country singular, or do countries comprised of multiple islands count?

Yep they count (assuming you are referring to archipelagos), as long as they are a sovereign state and have the right population of course! biggrin.gif
