3rd May

Welcome to The Bulls Head virtual quiz 3rd May

This weeks quiz has 70 questions and an hour timer.

Whilst we use machine technology to present the quiz, it does not generate the questions or the answers, that falls to us. In a normal world (whatever that might be) there is leniency to spelling errors, singular and plurals in quizzing but unless we manually score everyone's results it is impossible to allow for every minor issue.

We have taken on board some comments and criticisms and tried to cover as many variants in the answers as possible, however, it is just for fun and we hope you do have fun taking part.

A slight change to the scoring this week, we have used a points based system, 1 point for each correct answer and we have thrown in a couple of bonus points which can make a huge difference to your results so good luck all teams.

Last weeks winners were:

Cornwall Blues 81%

Twinz Inc 76%

Mac 75%

Well done teams. The full list of results can be found here

This week we have a prize! A bottle of Champaign....

Good luck everyone.

BTW HAPPY BIRTHDAY BERN STEWART XXXXX

    Disappointed that I got marked down for using Capitals & punctuation.
    Still would NOT have scored 100% as the final round stumped me. 🤣🤣🤣😭😭😭😭

      Capitalisation would not have tripped you up but an out of place apostrophe might have! Thanks for playing though

    Thanks for the music round. Would have hung my head in shame if I got either Fleetwood Mac question wrong.
