not sure how to feel about this, there were some great questions here though, particularly enjoyed the lack of questions with ridiculous amounts of correct answers.

1: D’You Know What I Mean {n4yr, Santas Haz}

2: Don’t Look Back In Anger {Danta Claus, James Frost, Taylor Jago}
2: Firestarter {Dobbo, Michael Bubré, UltraXmasWitch}

4: All Around The World {awardinary, Christmas, DalekTurret32, Mango, Riser}

5: The Importance Of Being Idle {Cameron, JingleBellsMack, Noahspicicle, richie, RobinJuanPerise, Wombanta Claus}


What better way to start a Dobbo quiz than featuring 2 of my favourite bands of all time? Both especially huge in the 90s, where almost all of their combined #1s were picked up from. There were a total of 10 possible answers to this questions, 8 from Oasis & 2 from The Prodigy. All were answered, although interestingly only 4 participants opted for a #1 from the latter. SevenSleighz records a perfect start with the only Pointless answer, The Prodigy's 2nd #1 single, 'Breathe'.

Other strong starts were made if you opted for Oasis' first UK #1 single 'Some Might Say' or lead single from the fastest selling UK album of all time 'D'ya Know What I Mean', both only answered by 2 posters each.

There was a nice spread of answers in this round & I'm happy to report not a single incorrect answer either so everyone gets off to a pretty good start! The highest scorers were last #1 from Oasis 'The Importance Of Being Idle' & the longest #1 single ever (in terms of track length) 'All Around The World' but no reason at all to get downbeat (yet) about answering with either of those.

I just had to go for Oasis for that one obviously *.* so much love for them.

'Go Let It Out' was just the first of theirs to come into my head ~ most likely due to the recency of it featuring in NMTBJ tongue.gif

2. Name a Formula One Drivers’ World Champion since 1990




NOT ANSWERED: Nigel Mansell

POINTLESS: Nico Rosberg {SevenSleighz}
POINTLESS: Sebastian Vettel {Fgiboy2511}

1: Ayrton Senna {Noahspicicle, WiseManFromLeeds}
1: Michael Schumacher {Danta Claus, James Frost}
1: Jacques Villeneuve {Brett-Butler, n4yr}
1: Jenson Button {CodySleighBell-y, Josh}

2: Alain Prost {Jahq, Mango, Sarah}
2: Damon Hill {awardinary, Cassidy, RobinJuanPerise}
2: Kimi Raikkonen {Cameron, Santas Haz, Slade}

3: Lewis Hamilton {Christmas, DalekTurret32, Taylor Jago, UltraXmasWitch}

4: Fernando Alonso {BillyH, Jacob Marley, Riser, Rooney, Wombanta Claus}
4: Mika Hakkinen {Dobbo, JingleBellsMack, Michael Bubré, richie, Weiss Schnee}



We've had fleeting Sports-based questions in Lounge Pointlesses the last couple of years but never one about the pinnacle of motorsport, Formula One. The late 80s/early 90s saw some of the finest drivers in Senna, Prost & Mansell to name a few and there have been a total of 13 champions in the past 26 years.

Mansell, the 1992 champ was the only driver to not receive an answer however there were 2 who received one, SevenSleighz continuing a fine start by opting for the most recently-crowned champion (and now retired) Nico Rosberg. Fellow countryman & 4 times champions Sebastian Vettel gives Fgiboy2511 a Pointless answer too.

2 of the most widely regarded drivers in the history of the sport with 10 titles between them, Ayrton Senna & Michael Schumacher, were both great answers, scoring only 1 point, along with one time champions Jacques Villenueve & Jenson Button.

Again, a fairly evenly spread question with no incorrect answers. The highest scorers were 2 time champions Fernando Alonso & Mika Hakkinen. After 2 questions no one has scored more than 10 points, how long will this keep up? kink.gif

Oh dear, not the best start, feel like this is one round where it's not gonna go my way sad.gif Was so hard to pick answers for this round, hopefully one of the stabs in the dark turns out well.

Poor Importance of Being Idle thought of as pointless by so many cry.gif It's their best song post 1990s easily.

3. Name a playable character from Crash Team Racing




NOT ANSWERED: N. Tropy
NOT ANSWERED: Nitros Oxide
NOT ANSWERED: Papu Papu
NOT ANSWERED: Ripper Roo

POINTLESS: Cortex {DalekTurret32}
POINTLESS: Fake Crash {Noahspicicle}
POINTLESS Penta Penguin {Fgiboy2511}

1: Coco {Josh, Slade}
1: Komodo Joe {Cameron, Christmas}
1: N. Gin {SevenSleighz, WiseManFromLeeds}
1: Polar {Michael Bubré, Weiss Schnee}
1: Pura {awardinary, Sarah}

2: Crash {James Frost, richie, Taylor Jago}

3: Pinstripe {Dobbo, Mango, Riser, UltraXmasWitch}

5: Dingodile {Brett-Butler, Cassidy, CodySleighBell-y, Danta Claus, Jahq, Wombanta Claus}
5: Tiny {Jacob Marley, JingleBellsMack, n4yr, RobinJuanPerise, Rooney, Santas Haz}

INCORRECT (33): Dave {BillyH}


Probably the best video game of all time, certainly back in the days of PS1, the number of hours I must have spent playing this must be scary yet worth every second. The recent news that the first three instalments of the popular series are to be remastered next year was among the best news of 2016, although how I wish this particular edition would receive that luxury, ahhh I'm just being greedy now.

Anyway, 3 posters scored a Pointless answer here. Cortex, the long-running antagonist of the series (though not in this game), Penta Penguin who is only unlockable via a cheat code & Fake Crash who also can be unlocked via a cheat code but also through beating one of the hardest cups in the game like the true masters wink.gif

There were 4 characters who would also have scored a Pointless with one vote, Papu Papu & Ripper Roo are both bosses but get unlocked by beating Cups, N. Tropy by a mile the hardest one to unlock & the overall antagonist of the game the infamous Nitros Oxide who technically isn't playable but can be unlocked via a cheating device.

Once again, the answers were relatively spread out, Dingodile & Tiny receiving the most votes, however we do see the first incorrect answer of the edition. Unfortunately there is no playable character with the name of Dave in this, nor any game of the series.

4. Name a US State beginning with ‘M’




POINTLESS: Mississippi {Dobbo}

1: Minnesota {Taylor Jago, Weiss Schnee}
1: Missouri {Cassidy, Josh}

3: Montana {awardinary, CodySleighBell-y, n4yr, Riser}

4: Maine {BillyH, Brett-Butler, Cameron, Christmas, Michael Bubré}
4: Massachusetts {DalekTurret32, Danta Claus, Jacob Marley, Santas Haz, Wombanta Claus}

6: Maryland {Fgiboy2511, Mango, Noahspicicle, richie, Rooney, Sarah, UltraXmasWitch}
6: Michigan {Jahq, James Frost, JingleBellsMack, RobinJuanPerise, SevenSleighz, Slade, WiseManFromLeeds}


Had to throw in a token Geography question & decided to opt for one based on US States as opposed to World Countries. That very first time I managed to name all 50 on Sporcle was such a proud moment biggrin.gif

HOWEVER this may a rare occasion where no incorrect answers were given! cheer.gif the only Pointless answer was in fact given by myself (honestly angel.gif), the oh-so-fun to spell Mississippi. Also very good answers came in the form of 2 other "Mi..." States, Minnesota & Missouri.

As seems to be becoming the norm in this round (it doesn't last btw) there were no real big scoring answers, the highest of 6 being shared by Maryland & Michigan. I'm impressed so far, how long can this consistency uphold?
