[MoHA][Comp] The Royal Quiz - Winners and Losers!

Tag 1,948, 14:12 Veröffentlicht in United Kingdom Großbritannien von eUK Home Office
The latest Royal Quiz was held yesterday hosted by myself (Bohemond4) and HRH Woldy I.

I am assured that a great time was had by all who attended it, we had roughly 20 contestants from around the erepublik globe and here in our humble eUK abode. Sadly for those involved, not everyone could win the title of Quiz Masters for the month. For the month of March this went to CptChazbeard who astounded everyone by turning up drunk and proceeding to declare he would play by himself. In this regard, Mwcerberus also declared he, too, would play by himself; sadly, this did not end up as well for him as Chaz, coming in a respectable 4th.

Woldy and Bohemond have assured the Ministry of Home Affairs that they will be running another quiz next month, so come along and have a blast. Listen to the sage advice 5Butjam and Dr Hugh Jardon and make sure you don’t miss out!

“The Royal Quiz was great fun and my only regret is that I wasn't allowed to have double the fun and captain two teams. Thankfully, I chose team Boblo Island over C U Next Tuesday and, despite what the critics say, came a resounding first. Or at least that's what we're going by. Get a team together, put an hour aside and be there next time for a decent bunch of laughs and a nice night all round”
- 5Butjam

''It was fun filled night of excitement and merriment that brought back childhood memories of happier times, simpler times. Of times of innocence where laughter was more appreciated and cultivated in an environment of togetherness and enjoyment.

Would i recommend the Woldy Royal quiz night to a friend? No, mainly because I have none and it is fixed.”

- Dr Hugh Jardon


Honourable Mentions: Apronchef who arrived late and proceed to gain a great average with 15/20 questions and Mwcerberus whose attempt to run stuffed with spices and no partners collapsed beneath him.



In Third Place we had joint Team ‘Murica headed by Gamechanger and Team Boblo Island headed by 5Butjam.

Team ‘Murica:
GameChanger
Talon Karrde
TheCommunist
Jimbobfrey
Betafoxtrot

Team Boblo Island:
5Butjam

In Second Place we had C U Next Tuesday team led by Klurr

C U Next Tuesday:

Cygnus X1

And in final place we had the French Knicker Appreciation Society headed by CptChazbeard

French Knicker Appreciation Society:
CptChazbeard



Talon Karrde lived up to form getting into 3 teams without anyone knowing that he was doing so. This is probably an appropriate moment to mention the Mafia game we recently concluded on the Forums, and that we will be doing another one in this http://forums.erepublik.co.uk/viewforum.php?f=182. The Mafia managed to score a victory led by the dastardly Godfather: Talon Karrde and including senior members of the government including the CP, co-MoHA and the co-MoFA from last month Jimbojoy.

That’s all from your entertainment team for this week

Bohemond4 and Prof J Moriaty.
