Howdy disco citizens!

Welcome to Family Fortunes, which is Round 1 of the Lounge Quizzes 2017. You host for this edition is myself, Brett-Butler. You lucky, lucky things.

The aim of the game is simple. Answer the question with the answer you think was most likely answered by everyone else. The more people pick the same question as you, the more points you get for your answer.

For example, if the question was “Name a type of flower”, and five people went for “daisy”, then you would receive 4 points for that answer.

You have until the Saturday 22nd July 23:59 GMT to get your answers in (I may accept late entries if I’m feeling particularly fruity). Results to follow on Sunday evening. Submit via PM to myself!

1. Name a song that features on Suede’s 2003 compilation album “Singles”.
2. Name a cake that you would associate with Mr Kipling.
3. Name a film directed by Hayao Miyazaki
4. Name a politician who is, or ever has been, an MP for the Liberal Democrats.
5. Name a country that contains the letter “Z” (by country, we mean a sovereign state that is a member of the UN in its own right).
6. Name a colour that you definitely would not want your walls painted in.
7. What would you do if you realised that you’d been overcharged by Ł1 for an item in a supermarket?
8. Name a band that you would associate with “landfill indie”.
9. Name a scientist you would associate with biology
10. Name a member of Buzzjack who is a moderator of a forum within the “Your Entertainment” section of the site.

Best of luck, and submit away!

I'm early ohmy.gif

Interesting set of questions. I particularly liked the social decision making ones (because I'd probably flop at them laugh.gif )

I'm excited to see what people have put for #2, #6 and #10 (and hope there's some funny answers for #7 kink.gif )

You can participate in this yourself Brett btw! (If you want to of course. A few people in the later FF/Pointless rounds last time didn't do so, so perhaps that needed restating x)

I'll sit this one out - I've already received a few answers so wouldn't be in the spirit of the contest if I participated at this point.

Some...interesting answers, to say the least, so far. Keep them coming.

The period in the mid 00s or so where there were seemingly thousands of indistinguishable generic guitar bands in the charts.

Hmm, not the most obvious set of questions ever, nothing that I really know off the top of my head.

Very good set of questions, certainly looking forward to the Q7 answers. Nice nod to Mr. Osman there in Q5.

Questions 6 and 7 are pretty refreshing! It's good to have a couple of broad questions like that where it's more to do with opinion rather than Googling.

yeah I have no idea either but that's the fun part, it could have been a completely made up term that we all had to decide what defined it ohmy.gif

Entered, there are a few questions where I'm sure I'll have got close to 0 but I just have no clue what the top answer will be. A good set of questions to start the new series.

Landfill indie was a common derogatory term and I want some of it back sad.gif

Hayao Miyazaki *.* I hope we get some good answers for that.

Some very interesting questions for FF, I have high hopes for 5, 6, 7 and 10 at the LEAST to be a challenge to get right.

Entered! biggrin.gif

The 'landfill indie' question was the one I spent the longest mulling over! Looking forward to seeing what people chose for that one.

There was one that came to mind but I wasn't sure if they were associated with 'landfill indie' or not. Went for a definite 'landfill indie' band in the end.

Keep the entries coming. Some interesting answers so far - some that I'd expected lots of different answers for having homogeneous ones, and vice versa.

Apparently 'landfill indie' means 'every band that I love and make me feel nostalgic about the good parts of my childhood'

Entered, a pretty lovely set of questions to answer, I wasn't stuck for most, although I can't speak to how I've done because of a couple of wildcards.
