8 January 2018
Our first meeting of 2018 will be a slightly different kind of thing. Instead of talks there'll be a quiz. We did this in 2007 and 2013 so if you attended those you'll know what to expect. If not the details are below
The quiz will be run as 5 separate rounds. The first four are themed on the words in LRUG (London, Ruby, Users, and Group). The 5th round is a picture round which will be given to each team to complete throughout the evening and marked at the end. The picture round questions will be based around the same 4 themes as the other rounds.
Round 1: London
Round 2: Ruby (more community and history than technical details)
Round 3: Users (famous and historical people)
Round 4: Group (music)
Round 5: picture round
Each round will have 10 questions, but there'll be bonus points available throughout the quiz for exceptional answers.
Teams should have no more than 4 members (we may adjust this up or down on the night depending on attendance or prize divisibility).
Utilising internet devices to obtain answers is strictly forbidden - we expect you to use your onboard brain, not your outboard one.
The quiz master's word is final in any disputes.
