Y'know wot ! I hadn't even noticed the score. I only saw the points thingy.

Thicko.

Somewhere on Funtrivia is a question I sne to them, no idea what category or whether it will ever appear in a BE quiz. So to give you all a chance it was Where is the only other city that Harrods has opened a store. Answer was Buenos Aires, it was in the 19th century and was sold a few years later. It's never appeared in any of their quizes I have answered and I've answered hundreds, Funtrivia has a Global Challenge, and in the past I've reached the level of 'Immortal', which only gets awarded to someone finishing in the top 10 of the quiz which covers several weeks answering questions every day, and the categories get harder as you progress.

I've never had to - I just have the same log in for each quiz and once I've logged in, I'm all good to go.
There is an Australian question day, don't worry, we all do rubbish at that one, lol.

I once got 10/10 for that, luck, having seen the questions before and pure guess work accounted for that.

I wouldn't worry too much, just had a look and one person took 226 seconds, got 9 right but has scored less than those with only 8 right.

Lost wifi connection and the time spent re-acquiring the game was added to my time. If that's the worst thing that happens today I'll take it!
