POINTLESS





Hello & welcome to another round of Pointless in the Lounge Forum, this time hosted by me. As ever, please submit to me via PM (Dobbo) your answers to the following 10 questions.

Remember you are trying to score as few points as possible. The more other participants who give the same answer as you, the more points you score. If you submit an incorrect answer you will score maximum points (i.e. the total number of participants), this is to be avoided of course!

The questions are as follows:

1. Name an Official UK #1 Single by Oasis or The Prodigy*
2. Name a Formula One Drivers’ World Champion since 1990
3. Name a playable character from Crash Team Racing
4. Name a US State beginning with ‘M’
5. Name a 'House Robot' from any series of Robot Wars UK
6. Name a flavour of Quark
7. Name a Single which was both a UK & US #1 in 2016**
8. Name an active roller coaster at Alton Towers
9. Name any winner of the British Edition of FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World
10. Name a starter Pokémon from Pokémon Red/Blue

*Referring to the Official UK Singles Chart only. Genre-specific charts do not count, neither does the Official Scottish Chart
**Again referring only to the Official UK Singles Chart & the Billboard Hot 100, sub-charts/streaming only charts etc. don't count


You have just over a week to submit your desired answers. Deadline is Friday 23rd December, 23:59 GMT! Good luck & all the best to competing participants.

Also check out the other Lounge Quiz taking place this week, Nevermind The Buzzjacks hosted by Jacob cheer.gif

I tend to avoid Pointless like the plague, but since this one involves such beacons of my childhood as Crash/Pokémon/F1/Robot Wars I reckon it's safe to say I'm in magic.gif

This was such an odd one to enter as the temptation to Google was huge (particularly for the two questions I have no idea what the hell they refer to) - but yeah entered!

Glad you didn't as it ruins quizzes. Always best to have a guess - can result in some funny answers too biggrin.gif

Is question 10 intentional? I just wonder why its included as there is a strong chance it'll block a perfect Pointless "game". unsure.gif

As far as I'm aware, number 7 only has one more possible answer than number 10.

Oh yeah absolutely intentional! It just seems with a lot of Pointlesses I've seen there's always questions with a load of possibilities so I wanted to make mine a real challenge for someone to fluke achieve a low score.

Plus, it's not quite as restrictive as Bré's "country that competes in the Ashes" question kink.gif

It has been a bit traditional for Q10 on a Pointless to be one with few answers. At least I tried to do that in my edition. kink.gif

Entered - don't think I've identified any loopholes but a good strong round.

I last went to Alton Towers in 1995, so mine's probably similarly outdated tongue.gif
