    The point of the game is pretty simple. In a PM to me, answer each of the 10 questions below.

    Try to think of the most popular answer, to get the most people matching you. You don't want a unique answer, you have to answer with what you think everyone else will put.


    Scoring - Any answer duplicated by anyone else is worth 100 points divided by the number of entrants. For example: if 20 people play then its 5 pts per answer. If 4 people match the same answer then that means they each get 4 * 5 (20pts) for that answer. No matches = 0 points.



    If you need to comment or clarify a question then do it in thread please. And if you could reply once you've sent a PM it'd keep the thread alive :) Thanks!


    JUST LIKE THIS:

    1. Dr Maria O' Brien
    2. Kathy Wells
    ...


    The game will end when (if!) we have 20 entrants.




    Good luck!

    1. Name a female scientist
    2. Name an actress
    3. Name a female political leader
    4. Name a sportswoman
    5. Name a female singer

    7. Name a businesswoman
    8. Name a queen

    Can they be dead?


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 10,912 Mod ✭✭✭✭Ponster


    Yeah, they can be dead. Murdering people though for the sake of the quiz is a no-no.

    patmac, you can resubmit an answer if you want to based on this new and exciting information !

    Done! :)
    Some of them are a lot tougher to choose than others.

    Actually they were for me at first but looking at some replies there were a lot of "Doh!" moments when I didn't think of someone who was bloody obvious.

    Great idea for a quiz.

    PM Sent.

    Ponster, when is the deadline for entries?

    Can I suggest a rule to keep the game fair, that there's to be no discussion of possible answers until after the deadline, so as not to influence people's choices?

    Ok.....18 entries.

    Should I wait another few days for more entries or shall we cut to the chase and see who won?


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,900 ✭✭✭Quality


    Ah go on...

    Make my day!


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 10,912 Mod ✭✭✭✭Ponster


    I'll leave it run a little longer. If I get 20 replies then it makes it easier to work out the scoring (5pts per answer rather than 5.55555) :)
