THE LIGHTNING QUIZ

Here's our latest quiz thread.
This will not replace the WEEKLY QUIZ but will run at the same time, in fact will run non-stop.
Many of us enjoy the weekly one, but sometimes you just don't have time to ponder. Sometimes you just want a quick brainteaser.
This is the thread for just that thing.

Here are the Guidleines:

1. The questions need not be as involved as the weekly ones; or they can be as hard as you like. Remember though, we want to keep it moving so be prepared to give hints every so often if it's a tough one.

2. Again thinking about keeping it quick, we ask that the questioner ask one question only.

3. The questioner may not be online when it is answered (correctly or incorrectly) So we ask that you send your answer in private message to all staff members so that if you are not here the game moves along. Please title the message "Lightning Quiz answer", that way we can find it & also we can keep it closed if we want to try solving it ourselves.(just to keep our skills honed)

4. The correct answerer will then be able to post a question.

5. Label your question EASY, MEDIUM or HARD and also BBC or Canon if possible.

6. Please ensure questions cover either BBC Sherlock or ACD & his canon. You may even post which it relates to if you think a hint in the right direction is needed.

7. Make sure you've researched the answer; and make sure people would be able to find it, if they look in the right place.

8. Try keeping a list of quirky facts,  funny moments, good lines etc while you watch Sherlock or read about the show or the actors anyway. Then you will be ready for anything when your turn comes. This will keep your observation skills honed for anything.

9. Remember when it's busy here, 'easy ' quick questions could be great.

For Members attempting to answer the quiz, ANSWERS NEED JUST BE POSTED IN THIS THREAD

And lastly.... have fun !!!

Mycroft’s popularity doesn’t surprise me at all. He is, after all, incredibly beautiful, clever and well-dressed. And beautiful. Did I mention that?

Re: THE LIGHTNING QUIZ

OK, mine's pretty easy and it's from the BBC...
If you take Sherlock's three attempts at breaking into Irene's phone and add them together (letters count as zero) what do you get?

Re: THE LIGHTNING QUIZ

1895 + 2210 + 1058   =   5163   is that the answer you're looking for miss molly?


we shud just call this quis  the RIGHT ANSWERS  quiz.    Lightning  isn't going  according to plan,  and we already  have a wrong answers quiz thread  over on the games section.   I'd  suggest moving this one  to there,  with the new title.   Good idea?
