Exlilian Forum Pub Quiz
« on: September 02, 2020, 10:01:48 AM »
Welcome to the Exilian Pub Quiz!!!

Good morning trivia fans. For a bit of fun I have put together a little quiz, consisting of few rounds of questions. It's open for anyone reading that may wish to enter. There is a small prize on offer: A trophy that you can add to your forum profile if you want!
All you have to do is send your answers by way of a message to me. Bonus point if you give yourself an amusing pub quiz team name :)

I'll leave this up for a week and then post the answers on this thread!

Good luck!!

Round 1: Video Round

This video is 10 theme tunes or well known songs from TV and Film - except they are done in a chiptune style. Can you identify which movie or TV show that the tune is associated with?


Round 2: Picture Round

Here are 10 visual puns - drawn by my own fair hand. They all represent a word or short phrase (no longer than 3 words). So by way of example, this one is lovable (love a bull)



So here are the 10 visual puns!



Round 3: Questions

These five questions are song lyrics that have been reworded slightly, as if someone posh were saying them. Can you tell what song the lyric is from, and who performed it?

  • You may well accuse me of dreaming, however there is an abundance of those that do. Perhaps you could as well!
  • I am in favour of the larger posterior, and I always tell the truth.
  • If you are in favour of it, then you should have adorned it with a ring
  • When you utter my name, it is just as an invocation to the lord. I am knelt down, and it would please me for you to join me.
  • There is an increase in humidity. The ambient pressure, on the other hand is dwindling. It is 22.30 hours, and there is some rather unusual precipitation

These five questions are "technically correct" movie descriptions. So they are a literal / oblique way of describing a movie. Can you tell what the movie is?

  • An overprotective father eventually lets his disabled son out of his sight only for him to be captured. The father then goes on a quest to find his son. The father eventually finds his son, and realises he is more capable than he thought.
  • The harrowing tale of a woman whose ex boyfriend will stop at nothing and deceive everyone just to be with his kids
  • A Man lies and fakes his way into a job. Once there, he proceeds to corrupt the innocent youth he was hired to protect, and instead convinces them to form a group, with him as their leader, following his every word.
  • A young boy steals a book, skips school and gets waaayyyyy too into the story, which definitely ends.
  • A big time criminal gets stuck with a smart-arse kid after her mother dies. He agrees to employ her in exchange for a place on an apprenticeship scheme, before she gets him killed.

Ooh fun! ;D

I did okay with rounds 1 and 2, but round 3 really stumps me. I'm going to hold on sending my answers so I can brood some more on them on the weekend.

If it is maybe I can add in a couple of hints

I showed the quiz to my politics virtual pub group yesterday - not sure if any will submit answers, but they definitely enjoyed puzzling them out :)

Glad to hear! There are a couple of entrants, but don't think they are from that group.

Announcement

If you wish to participate you have until the end of tomorrow to message your answers to me. I'll be posting the answers - and who the winner is - on Wednesday  :)

p.s. I won't name and shame who scored what - so feel free to have a punt just for fun! You never know!

Just submitted my final answers. I actually had a eureka moment when a random tweet I saw mentioned a word from one of the questions. ;D

Duly answered, though I suspect I might have the worst result of anyone here!

Times up! Pens down :)

And here are the answers!

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

And the winner is......... (dramatic pause) Right twice a day, otherwise known as clockwork! Congratulations!

Thanks to all those that entered! It was actually fairly close between the teams in the end.

I should think I'll probably post another one in a couple of months time for an autumn edition.
