Why hello there Lounge citizens. It's been a good while now since the end of the last series of Lounge Quizzes... (and the results technically still haven't been finalised, I promise I will get that done very soon to officially congratulate... whoever won, I think it was Noah). About time to get them going again for 2016!

The Lounge Quizzes 2016 signup thread will be opening soon for anyone who is interested in registering to host a quiz, and that will contain all the relevant information. For now, I will be very undemocratically seizing the opportunity to be the first quiz host of the year to get the ball rolling. I am the designated 'quiz mod' here in the Lounge after all.



Most of you probably know how Family Fortunes games work on BuzzJack - be it through one of the previous runs here in the Lounge, or the plagiarised games hosted elsewhere on the forum, or even perhaps just by guessing based on how the actual TV show works. Nonetheless, I'll quickly explain it.

Below is a list of 10 questions. All you have to do is send a PM to me (Bré) containing an answer to each question. The aim of the game is to pick the most popular answer to each question. Usually there's at least one person who thinks Family Fortunes is Pointless or vice versa. Don't be that person. You can get away with it the other way round, but it's pretty important to pick a popular answer in Family Fortunes.

Points are scored based on how many other people gave the same answer as you - so for example, if the question was 'name a month of the year' and 12 people said August, each of those people would receive 11 points. Every player's points are summed up for each question and the winner is the person with the most points at the end. Simple enough.

Here are the questions:

1. Name an artist who has released an eponymous album (i.e. an album whose title is the name of the artist) since 2010.
2. Name a famous person whose first name is David.
3. Name a song that was #1 in the UK Singles Chart for 7 or more weeks.
4. Name a televised event that happens exactly once per year.
5. Name a country that does not contain the letter 'e' in its name.
6. Name a language which is not an official language in any European Union member state.
7. Name a British Prime Minister of the 20th century.
8. Name a sporting event that will occur in 2016.
9. Name something that spins.
10. Name something with the initials B and J (in either order with or without an '&' between - i.e. BJ, B&J, JB or J&B)


You have until 23:59 BST on Saturday the 16th of April, 2016 - that's a little under 8 days - to submit your answers and the results will take place the following evening.

(I hope all of those questions are clear enough but post away if you think anything there needs any more clarification)

((wrong answers will not be penalised if they earn points, but will be pointed and laughed at during the results))

I beat Noah, I added it up hitler.gif Of course, please independently verify this.

So time for me to defend my title from him I guess cheer.gif

I am already worrying that too many of these have one obvious answer based on the first few votes. x

(I was trying to avoid that but it can be difficult to gauge this before posting)

Question: If you signed up in the 2015 quiz thread but didn't get to host one, does that carry over?

Because IIRC y'all still owe me

That falls under 'all the relevant information' but basically yes. Still do look out for the signup thread. x

Very good set of questions, much better than the ones for the 10th anniversary edition.

I'm only seeing a couple of answers that I think are 'obvious' sad.gif (with most being stuck between two or three options)

Don't think #9 is too obvious (hopefully other people think along the same wavelength that I'm considering kink.gif)

Hopefully not as that's not ACTUALLY CORRECT pirate.gif (not that that matters lol, I likely will get 0 for that answer anyway).

I found a lot of these had quite a clear answer without having to google, I'd be very surprised (and annoyed) if 2,8 & 10 weren't landslides.
