Thank you Meepledrone for setting the questions and counting the answers. It's my first time entering this year, and it's trickier when you can't just skip over the Grinch's questions.

Merry Christmas everyone

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Great quiz! Had fun trying to solve some of these, and finding some answers to interesting interactions on the WICA!

Gracias Meepledrone!

@Meepledrone - thanks for all your efforts in organising what is, I'm sure, a highlight of the year for many of us here!

I hope that everyone has been enjoying a wonderful Christmas with family & friends! I'm back at work today (hence why I'm posting here so I can ease myself into it ;) ) so I hope everyone is able to make the most of whatever break they've had/ are having, and that the last few days of the year are full of fun, laughs and boardgames!

Best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2024 to you all from the "isthirty" family...

@Meepledrone thanks so much for organising the quiz again! Several merits for you :(y)
There was no rush due to removal of the speed bonus. However, this has been more than compensated for by raising the difficulty level this year, so far it hasn't been that challenging.
Most of the questions were fun, I was waiting for the Peasants Revolts, much disliked by me, for this fun to be interrupted, fortunately I didn't get any questions with this expansion, however, another equally persistent for me was used.
With quiz complete, it's time to get back to making fan expansions, who knows, maybe the next quiz will be based on them  :))

Thank you for the fun @Meepledrone - even if I did end up staying awake half of the night a couple of times trying to work out the trickier ones  ;D
