Carcassonne Central: Advent Quiz
« on: November 17, 2015, 01:58:46 AM »
With December now just two weeks away, I’ve been thinking about what activities we can all enjoy together throughout the advent period. My plan: a Carcassonne Central-themed advent quiz! :red-meeple: :white-meeple:

The idea is that between the 1st and 24th December I will post one question per day on this thread, with the answer to each question being the name of a forum member here at Carcassonne Central. If you think you know the answer for any particular day (current or past), send me a PM with the question number and your answer, but please don’t post it on the thread as this could spoil the quiz for anyone else who either hasn’t seen the question yet or may still be trying to work it out.

Some of the questions are a little bit cryptic but most should still be obvious enough that you’ll know the answer straight away or can find it after a few minutes of searching around the forums/ Google. Here’s an example:


If you like to subscribe to certain posts so that you get an email whenever anyone posts an update, you'll probably know this person's name from emails containing the following:

"A topic you are watching has been split into two or more topics by _ _ N _ _ _ _ _ _ ."


The answer? MrNumbers of course! :)

If you’re the first person to answer any question correctly you will receive 3 points, or if you’re the second person to answer any question correctly you will receive 2 points. All other correct answers will receive 1 point, but you may only have one guess per question so don’t rush it!

The person with the most points at 5am on Christmas Day (UK time – when I expect to be woken up) will win a small prize. Correct answers and points awarded per question will be disclosed during the period between Boxing day and New Year’s Eve (depending on how bored I get at work).

The first question will be posted here in exactly two weeks time!

:blue-meeple:

That's a good idea, although I think the quiz may be a bit easy if every question has the same answer... ;)

Can you post the questions at various times of day to give different people the opportunity to be first ?

That seems like a reasonable request. I'll vary it as much as possible between 5am and 10pm UK time.

Indeed it is. There will be a question later on today, but anyone can join in with the quiz, at any stage, so there's no need to pre-register as such!

Exactly what I was going to say. :@

I take it the excitement of Christmas means you're lost for words? :))

Happy December everyone! It's time to get this show on the road with the first of our advent quiz questions... :)

Q1:
In June, this forum member gave up a Saturday in order to represent Carcassonne Central at a gaming event in London for the War Child charity.

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

The first person to answer correctly will be awarded 3 advent quiz points. The second person to answer correctly will be awarded 2 advent quiz points. All subsequent correct answerers will receive 1 advent quiz point! C:-) Good luck! :(y)

Hello again everyone. I hope your December is going well so far. :)

Here's the next advent quiz question of the day:

Q2:
In September last year, 999 games started selling the brand new Dutch/ Belgian monasteries expansion via their webshop. With no international shipping options, this forum member served us diligently by taking orders via the forums and buying them on our behalf, then posting to us. What a star!

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

As before, the first person to answer correctly will be awarded 3 advent quiz points. The second person to answer correctly will be awarded 2 advent quiz points. All subsequent correct answerers will receive 1 advent quiz point!

Points awarded per question and overall scores per person will be disclosed during the period between Boxing day and New Year’s Eve, so please forgive me for ignoring any messages requesting to know how many points you're on from now on... C:-)

Good luck! :(y)

In keeping with my promise to vary the times at which I pose these little questions, I'm going to make an early start today. Ready? Then let's go...

Q3:
Carcassonne's 15th anniversary landscape for KJW will feature tiles signed by many of Carcassonne Central's members, as well as other fans from around the world. This member however, was the first person (and only so far) to sign a tile with field on all four edges (ffff).

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

You know the drill: the first person to answer correctly will be awarded 3 advent quiz points. The second person to answer correctly will be awarded 2 advent quiz points. All subsequent correct answerers will receive 1 advent quiz point! Overall scores will be disclosed during the period between Boxing day and New Year’s Eve, so please don't ask me how many points you have before then... ::)

Good luck! :(y)

Q4:
It was Chickens vs. Monkeys vs. Stormtroopers vs. Danisthirtys in my third round game at the UK Carcassonne championships this year. But which forum member played as the Monkeys?

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!

No need to recap the rules again. Please refer to previous posts if you are unsure about anything.

Good luck! :(y)
