PEEHS - Famous Men Picture Quiz

    Who's up for a game of PEEHS?

    vggsMka.png

    Back in March I ran a picture quiz for International Women's Day. It seemed to go down well; 41 participants took part, with Green&Red being the eventual winner (the Reveal thread is here for those who'd like to revisit!)

    Anyway November 19th is International Men's Day, and so I'm now running the male version of this quiz. I'll keep signups open until the afternoon of Thursday 19th, and then hopefully do the Reveal that evening or the evening after.

    What is PEEHS?

    The goal of PEEHS is to give the least popular answer for each round - the one you think nobody else will submit. You get one point for each (correct) answer you submit, plus an additional point for every other player that submits the same answer. An incorrect answer scores 1.5 times the highest score.

    The winner will be the person with the lowest score at the end of the game; if you've ever watched Pointless with Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman, then you'll know the drill.

    Here's a quick example for any newbies who still may not be sure:
    e.g. 10 players are playing and are asked to name a colour.
    5 players say red - they each score five points
    3 players say yellow - they each score three points
    1 player says black - they score one point and should be very happy
    1 player says fish - they get 7.5 points and should probably read the question more carefully in future

    The usual PEEHS rules apply:

    NO GOOGLING: This is an honour-based game. You shall not use the wicked Google machine or any other illicit source for information. Baby Jesus is always watching, and his tears will haunt you in your sleep if you cheat.

    NO POSTING ANSWERS/CLUES ON THREAD. Please PM me with your answers.

    Spellings aren't too important once there's been a reasonable attempt made; however, any answer along the line of "yer man from that thing" will not be accepted!

    Also just to note that the order of the images in each round is completely random, so don't go looking for any patterns (alphabetical, chronological, etc) because you won't find any!

    So enough rambling: the ten rounds will appear in the following post, please choose one name from each round and then PM ME with your list of names.

    And best of luck everyone. :)

    I'm going to give this a go..... but on the basis that I've checked out the first two categories and I recognise at most two of them, I don't think I'll be bothering the upper echelons of the results.


    But hey, it's not about the winning, it's the taking part! Isn't it?????

    Some rounds are definitely tougher than others. In each round I tried to go for at least one or two that most people would likely know, and at least one that would most people wouldn't- the rest are somewhere in between.

    But don't feel bad if you find it challenging- that's part of the fun! :p I often find that I might know someone's name quite well without having a clue what they look like - a good few of the faces here may fall into that category.

    OK just entered, I love Pointless. I am actually impressed I seemed to have answers for most but only knew the obvious ones. My only hope is more people pick the obscure ones
