    Another really enjoyable quiz! Thank you!
    Just a small point- and I know it’s for fun- but we find it frustrating when marked wrong (5 correct answers) because we’ve used lower case and the answer has capitals-or vice versa where answer is all in lower case and we’ve used a capital letter!
    Could it be stated at the start what is acceptable and what’s not? Or maybe just use lower case throughout?

      The AnSwErS are NOT case sensitive. “The Answer” will be the same as “the answer”.
      Thanks for playing great score.
