I'm looking at it too, but I only have four anagrams so far so I'll hold off posting for a bit.

I also only have four horses, but I won't get any more of those. :(

112 hours 47 mins?
Will try and fill in gaps and actually do the anagrams when I get a moment

Edit: I’ve filled in my leftover answers after the deadline! I’ve left my previous up there. Shame as I think I’ve nailed it. Had the questions in my notes app and tried to pick away at them.

Thanks to everyone who's entered so far. I'm going to be honest, I can't be bothered adding up the scores this evening. Have another couple of days and I'll do it at the weekend :)

Hi Alex, I’m itching to know the results. Maybe you could see if Jay/Leon would announce it on next months patreon podcast? You’ve put in so much effort so there’s no harm in asking:)

:lol:

Every couple of days I remember I need to do this, and feel terribly guilty.

:lol:

I absolutely promise, I will do it tonight. Its no excuse, but I've been so busy and then knackered lately. I left my job on Friday and now back at Uni doing a 13 month stupidly intensive post-grad diploma in social work so I really need to do it soon because otherwise my life is going to be nothing but assignments in a week or two.

Tonight. I super really definitely promise.

:lol:

No need to promise anything or feel guilty. All the best with the postgrad, you'll have a few plates spinning there!

I hope you’ll grow out of this lackadaisical attitude now you’re off to university, young man.

The Tiebreaker!

In the event of a tied score, the winner shall be decided by the following ridiculous and random question.

On my PS4, I have a single saved game for Fallout 4. In hours and minutes, how long have I been playing for on that save game?

Your answer goes here: Well, it's irrelevant, but it's 85 hours and 34 minutes.
So, I was a little lenient with answers. Spelling mistakes etc, and if I knew what the person meant then they scored a mark.

Anyway, did anyone topple Joshua AKA Combine Hunter off the top spot?

Well, in third place with a fantastic 57 points was...

Combine Hunter!

In second place with an amazing 60 points was...

Colin Alonso

And so the winner of the 2019 Cane and Rinse big quiz, with an incredible 69 points was...

SIMONSLOTH!

Well done mate, an absolutely fantastic score! You are crowned forum quiz champion of 2019!

Thanks for playing everyone, same time next year!

:)
