Discussing tabletop and related gaming and the Irish gaming scene so you don't have to

Feb 5, 2014

It's our 5th annual Pub Quiz! My God, we've been doing this for a while now. I call it a "Radio Quiz" in the opening, but pay no attention to that. One extra point to anyone who sends proof they did the quiz in a Pub. Also, it's worth 50 yo-yos to the winner.

We will post the Answers podcast, along with the name of the winner, in March.

1.48: Didn't realise I had such strong opinions about the fetid, sweating deviants that wallow around EVE

2.40: I don't understand how either sports or maths work.

3.15: Tom Lehrer is basically awesome. You've probably heard this one.

3.49: Seriously, Chess Boxing is a real thing.

4.09: Bareback Opening, wha wha wha

4.50: I consider chess a terrible game, because I'm truly awful at it

5.02: Four Sarcasm Points awarded for that one

5.24: xkcd comic of how to play optimal tic-tac-toe (or naughts and crosses... or x's and o's)

5.51: Oisin is being very kind at this point

6.58: Thank God! We've started numbering questions again.

8.21: Bonus question! Why in God's name are we doing Nixon questions? Answers delivered in a cardboard box to the White House. We'll let you know if you get it right.

9.12: The penny finally drops! I was TOTALLY confused up until that point.

9.20: Yes, so the notes said “only war”, where they should have said “Only War”. Still, no excuse on my part!

11.11: I can read, honest.

12.11: This is the most in-jokey in-joke that has ever appeared on the show. The saga of Space Marine and Mage is at least 8 years old, and is mostly centred around a fictional 80s TV show for kids created by mad men. The theme tune we begin singing at 12.13 is not suitable for a family-friendly show such as ours!

14.00: Pro-tip; they do not

14.33: Super-cute and Super-deformed do not belong in the same sentence together

16.20: I acquired the skills “Make Steve Guttenberg a Star” and “Cover Suspicious Stain” from these two jobs

16.27: From which Oisin acquired the skills “Rum, Sodomy and the Lash” and “Coitus Interruptus”.

19.04: “Ladies” count – 2

20.29: “Ladies” count – 4

22.50: “Ladies” count – 6


25.03: Why must you ruin my dreams, Eoin?

25.51: Evidently the answer to my earlier question is that we can see through time and knew that a Nixon question was coming up.

26.44: “Ladies” count – 8
