Hello all *.* welcome to the 7th round of lounge quizzes, another 'Pointless'.
(Endorsed by Mary Berry, the 73rd hottest woman around according to FHM.)


Here's all you need to know if you're a first-time player, don't really understand the concept at first glance (see: 'I don't understand pointless' thread) or have forgotten how it works. Kindly put together by Buzzjack fave, and my other half, Bré:

"Below is a list of 10 questions. All you have to do is PM me (Jade) 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?"


No bonus points so it's all fair but I cannot promise that this is a loop-hole free affair. Or have I just said that to trick you all? Hmm...

01) Name a Chart mod on Buzzjack.
02) Name a national British tabloid newspaper.*
03) Name a film that Rachel McAdams starred in during the noughties.
04) Name a studio album released by Britney Spears.
05) Name a top goalscorer in a Premier League season within the past 15 years.**
06) Name a type of confectionary manufactured by Swizzels Matlow.
07) Name an inhabited island of Spain.
08) Name a TV series aired on Cartoon Network during the Cartoon Cartoons era.
09) Name a single that has sold over two million copies in the U.K.***
10) Name a noble gas that occurs naturally.


*Although sister papers are conglomerates of the big name papers, these DO count separately. They must still be in print, also.
**Up to 2013-14 league as the 2014-15 league remains incomplete.
***Without the inclusion of streaming ('chart sales')

So yes, something for you modifier fanatics, budding journalists, film buffs, Britney stans, ladz, confectionary queens, Spanish obsessives, cartoon lovers, chart geeks and scientists, many bases covered.

The deadline is Monday 1st June at 11.59pm BST. Remember everyone likes an earlybird x
Results will then commence the following day!

Please do take part, you know you want to climb up that leaderboard and make this more successful than Ryan's.

The definition of tabloid newspaper is really going to either eat me alive, or give me some serious non-points.

Oh just to clarify, for question 9 this is without the inclusion of streaming, as this is how the OCC tracks their million sellers. So chart sales, let me edit that question now, if you've already sent me your questions then feel free to update that answer if you wish.

This is either going to go very well for me or spectacularly wrong for me. I'll have to wait and see.

They do count as a correct answer biggrin.gif Just clarifying that they don't all come under the main paper's name just in case people were confused. So yeah I mean the main paper/sister paper do count separately, each one would be right, it just depends on which one you think would fare better as an answer. Hmm the trickiness of Pointless eh.

Sent mine nice 'n early (which does not happen often! ohmy.gif)

Attempted a few scary loopholes drama.gif but wasn't sure about the football one. From what I saw there were so many potential answers I wouldn't be surprised if everyone got a pointless ohmy.gif (or I'm just going to get that wrong laugh.gif)
