Hello there, and welcome to the 11.2nd round of Lounge Quizzes, it's another round of Pointless with your host, Chez. I'm sure if you've played this umpteen rounds/watch the show you'll know the rules by now, but relevant copypasta anyway:

Below is a list of 10 questions. All you have to do is PM me (Chez Wombat) 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? ;o

Additionally PLEASE READ THE FOOTNOTES BEFORE YOU SEND as I don't wanna get my head bitten off in the results 'cos people sent too quickly

Anyway, for this round you must name:

1. A television series narrated or presented by David Attenborough within the last fifteen years*
2. A film directed by Alfred Hitchcock released after 1939
3. An Arctic territory**
4. One of the animals of the Chinese Zodiac
5. A UK number 1 single from the year 2003
6. One of the top twenty highest ranking universities in the world as of 2014/15***
7. One of the eight planets that orbit the Sun
8. A London Underground line
9. A fairy tale that Disney has adapted into a feature film
10. A person whose full name is referred to in the lyrics to Billy Joel’s song ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’****

FOOTNOTES, PLEASE READ:

* Must be a full series with more than three episodes, one off specials/documentaries don't count
** a territory claimed within the Arctic region
***Going by the 2014/15 QS World University ranking
****Their WHOLE NAME must have been mentioned, those with just their surname mentioned do not count. I've linked to the song in case you need a bit of help~

Hope that's all clear and all, yes some may require a bit of googling but I've not included anything stupidly obscure so expecting a good amount of players (don't think I won't be watching if you play Iz's NMTBJ and not this one ;o)

I will set a deadline at Saturday 18th July 23:59PM so that gives you just over a week, the results will be presented at some point during that weekend. Be seeing you~

Smiled profusely when i saw the Hitchcock question. NO idea which way to go for it but will probably just plump for a favourite hidden gem and hope no one else knows of it. Nice round it seems, so looking forward to submitting answers~

Completed nice and early! biggrin.gif

2003 is probably my favourite year for noughties music so I loved that question. The planets and Chinese Zodiac ones were super cool too.

Interested to see where people will go for some of these!

You might want to try the old trick of PM harassing people who have entered before if answers continue to look thin on the ground kink.gif

(Sending some answers in now! x)
