Basic roolz and how-to-play. There'll be fifteen questions a day. Sixty in total, and ten from each category in total. I'll not post the results and answers until Friday, so as to let people join in late. Midday on Friday is the finishing-time, and after that I'll add up all the right answers. For each answer you get right, you get a piece of coloured PIE. I'll work out completed pies for everyone (one of each colour right is a PIE) and the person with the most full PIES is the champion. I'll also add up right questions, so there'll be a point-scoring winner too. I shall not bother with centre questions because that's too faffish.
Answers wot make me larf out loud will get bonus points. These won't count towards PIE but will count towards points scored. (If you wish for me to change this so as to make them count for pie, ask me NOW). There is limit on the number of bonus points you can get, though. People answering all the questions daftly will only get a few points.
If you think a question is daftly ambigious please say so. I try to avoid them, but they still slip in, and since we're not sitting around on my living-room floor it's a bit harder to manage them.
Googling (or otherwise finding the answer from somewhere not in your head) is very much forbidden. You can go back and change your answers until midday Friday, but let me know becuz I'll be adding things up as we go along.
You don't have to answer every day, but you're in with a much better chance if you do.
If you don't know an answer, please put something in the box. Because otherwise it's much faffier to add things up and I get confusted and DOOM ensues and I get irritated and disqualify you and it all ends in tears.
