I shall be starting this at 8pm on the dot. Longer questions will be posted just before, so among your teams, decide who's working on what. Remember, 5 of your team members maximum can get points for correct answers in the live quiz, although that can be any of your team members so you can switch out as necessary in case anyone has to go early or arrives late.

I will be posting questions every 10 minutes from then. That's 4 at a time.

I'd suggest preparing PMs to me, remember to have the questions you're answering in the subject (can be one or many) and for the longer ones do your best to make it standout so I can find it easily in my inbox afterwards. Scoring system is in the further info thread that's pinned but I'll post it again before I start.

Best of luck everyone (though cmon MRS).

I'm expecting 'question 4' so that's fine, the PM only needs to contain the answer. Can be anything like 'question 1', 'questions 1-3', or 'LONG FORM QUESTION 2' or whatever you're answering, just so I know which PMs to use when I get around to marking it.

LONGER QUESTIONS REVEALED

Remember, these are supposed to be worked on by teams over the course of the whole quiz. You can send them separately or as one but I will only accept one answer for each question PER TEAM. There are no marks for getting this in ahead of the other teams. So fine-tune it and discuss it in your teams before sending it.

You have from now until 30 minutes after the last set of quickfire questions are posted to PM me the answers to these questions.

I will be marking them on historical accuracy, but also creativity and most importantly, how convincing they are at getting me to believe whatever you choose to argue. They don't have to be essays, just a couple of paragraphs (although if you can make them longer because you find too much to put into them, by all means).

They are:

1. What was the biggest reason the Roman Empire fell?
2. Pick a real life country. Explain why, using examples from that country’s history, why they could have conquered the world.
3. When did the British Empire finally end?


First quickfire questions in 10 minutes. Get ready, everyone.

And, briefly reminding everyone of the rules for the rest of the quiz.

1. The first 12 questions are themed around 'Fall', the next 12 around 'Rise', and the last 12 around 'Change'.
2. This will be done by PM. Make the PM subject the numbers of the question(s) you are answering, you may answer one or many per PM.
3. The questions will be revealed in batches of 4. You may answer them all together in one PM, although that will put you at the same timestamp for all four questions for marking purposes, or answer them separately in four PMs, in whatever order you please.
4. The first correct answer for each question will get 10 points, the next 9, and so on down to 3. BUT, only 5 correct answers from each team can score points. So it's in your interest to get them in fast, but also to be right and you can still submit a correct answer a bit slow and get something for it.
5. Some questions have more than one correct answer. Normally it's two but there's one or two that might have more. If there is more than one, you'll know and each different answer is counted separately for the 10 down to 3 thing, but not the 5 correct answers from each team thing.

2. The Russian Empire fell to revolutionaries in which year?

3. What was the name of the agreement that caused Neville Chamberlain to wrongfully exclaim ‘peace in our time’?

Fully expecting that. Part of my goal is to not click on my inbox at all during this and see what number I can get it to laugh.gif

It'll pick up. And it's the first 8 before the scores stop going down.

At least if it doesn't pick up 50% shame on you team members abandoning your team in their hour of need, 50% my fault for doing this on a Saturday.
