Let's get serious (not too much though) - Ye Wilde Quiz Champions League Season 18!!!

Greetings, Queops! It has been a while since real news appeared here but I'm a bit 'hand'icapped at the mo and typing one-handedly is a chore.
Anyroads, show must go on... New Years quiz is a thing of the past (lots of new faces and even more fun) and was meant to be a soft start into quiz year 2017 (points somewhere below, for those of you who need reminder or confirmation).

We are kicking off the new Wilde Quiz Champions League season with WQ#216 on Thursday 19 January at 8pm. Going back to the regular rules and rounds, we're going to have 2 picture rounds and 2 music rounds, one golden round and one round about current events and ****heads about to take office. The other topics are still top secret ;)

We still have a few tables. If you want in drop us a line (quiz_miz@hotmail.com)..

And last but not least the chance to start with up to FOUR! points. Prediction of the week -.Handball World Cup. Pick four of the following eight games and predict the winners. Send me your wild guesses by mail, before the respective games kick off.

Manners matter

Quiz year 2017 kicked off rather nicely and all teams old and new were enjoying themselves plenty.

For those teams who booked a table, didn't show up and never even bothered to cancel thus robbing other teams of the chance to get a table - bad manners.
Don't bother trying to book again. Much like Santa, I'm making a list. And you're on it,

That said - all the new teams tonight were lovely queops and are welcome back any Thursday. Your names I have too :)


ps. points & stuff later this week ;D

MERRY QUIZMAS

Season's greetings to y'all, queops :)

After a year of riddles and fun and more than the occasional amount of BS I wish you & your loved ones the best holidays you can get. Frohe Weihnachten, Happy Hanukkah, Joyeux Noël, Happy Christmas, and above all a VERY MERRY QUIZMAS.

May the new year bring us peace and joy, health and prosperity, and also the odd (correct) answer to the questions life throws at us.

We'll meet again in 2017 (on 5 January, to be exact). Until then - enjoy the holidays, the time with family and friends, fine spirits and acceptable weather. Stay quizzical, wherever you are, and above all - STAY SAFE!

Once more, the end is nigh.. be prepared for Finals, Decades & Quizmas

Nope, no DT reference. I'm still in denial.
The year 2016 is leaning sharply towards its end and we have 3 quizzes left. And they're all pretty much booked up. VERY few tables left (unless some people cancel) and groups bigger than 6 need not apply anymore.

These are the dates and themes:

Ye Wilde Quiz #212
- the big Champions Leagues Season 17 FI-NAAA.Le, oho...
Thursday 17 November 2016, 8pm - due to cancellations, we now have 1 table left
Ye Wilde Quiz #213 - the mad review and party quiz - all 70s, 80, and 90s
Thursday 1 December 2016, 8pm - ONLY 1 TABLE LEFT
Ye Wilde Quizmas - the annual seasonal silliness with crimbo questions, songs, sweets, games & drinks
Thursday 15 December 2016, 8pm -  FULLY BOOKED NOW, no more tables unless someone cancels :(

If you want the precious last table(s) do send a mail to quiz_miz@hotmail.com. NO OTHER WAY to get in.

Of course we will have predictions of the week or other games to pick up a few extra points. We will also have a 'secret Santa' round for Quizmas and other things I haven't though of. Yet. 
All the pertinent info will appear here or in the fb group (Brains in Berlin) or will be sent by mail to the lucky team who managed to get a table.
