    The point of the game is pretty simple. In a PM to me, answer each of the 10 questions below. There are no wrong answers. The point is to give the answer that you think the majority of the people will give.



    Try to think of the most popular answer.





    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!



    Write your answers like this...



    1. answer
    2. answer
    3. answer


    Do not repeat the questions, no full-stops at the end of answers, no spaces between lines, no comments, no fancy list coding. Thanks.




    The game will end when we have 40 entrants or after 7 days, whichever comes first.




    Please, no full-stops after the answers and put a space in between the 1. and the answer ok?



    1. Name an English dialect spoken somewhere in the British Isles.
    2. Name a musical genre indigenous to the United States.
    3. Which continent is most prone to natural disasters?
    4. Name a country occupied by Germany during World War II.
    5. What is the most popular sport in Australia?
    6. Name a character from a video game.

    > Yeah I didn't get one either

    I don't seem to have a PM for you for quiz #17 ?

    > sorry didn't read full thread and just entered. Would have got a few top answers as well!

    I'm going to ask the mods to remove the questions when the quiz is over rather than just editing the title.

    Weird, it's in my sent box. Any way it doesn't really matter, can you let me know if you got my one for quiz 18?

    I had thought about saying alcohol, but afaik it's a depressant and not a stimulant.
