Mago (Mark) | 1750 comments Let's see if this works!
I shall be running a short quiz as regularly as possible depending on popularity or demand.
10 questions.
First to post correct answer gets a point.
I'll decide if time is up.
I trust you not to Google!
The quizmaster is always right!

I tried this yesterday on the Morning Thread and I quite enjoyed it, if nobody else did.

Today's quiz will begin at 1pm Liverpool Standard Time (that's in about 45 minutes).

Sign up here.
