A New (and Temporary) Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game!

#1 Post by geowayne »

Hey there! I'm not running a new poll, but I have posted on my "Commentary" website a temporary new feature that I hope you'll like: a Pet Shop Boys Trivia Game! And it's a pretty tough one, if I do say so myself. It consists of 25 questions, most of the answers for which can NOT be found on my website. And some of them aren't merely "trivial" -- they're downright obscure.

I'm going to run this game for either one or two weeks, depending on the number of all-correct submissions I receive and how quickly. If I receive, say, 20 or more all-correct submissions within the first three or four days, then I'll announce in advance that it will conclude after one week -- that is, by next Sunday, September 6. On the other hand, if it takes longer for me to receive at least 20 all-correct submissions, then I'll let it run for two full weeks.

I'll announce the correct answers at the end of the game period along with a list of everyone who answered all of the questions correctly and chose not to remain anonymous. (After all, I'll need your name, or at least a pseudonym, in order to identify the submissions. An optional text-entry field at the end of the game will allow you to provide your name if you wish.)

At any rate, I hope you'll visit my "Commentary" site at http://www.geowayne.com/psbhtml.htm and click on the link there on my home page that will take you to the game. And I hope you like it! Good luck!

Wow!

That was hella tough!

Gave it a go but seriously not going to trouble the leaderboard here.

Still some fascinating questions and look forward to learning the answers in a few weeks.

Nice one Wayne!

Thanks! I figured if I were going to create a trivia game, what would be the point of making an easy one? So I purposely came up with questions that would prove challenging. I just hope I didn't make it TOO challenging. :-)

Don't kick yourself. I would know the answers to fewer than half of them myself if I hadn't done all the research necessary to come up with these questions!

Man that was really difficult, i think i knew three or four but some were just wild guesses, i'll be surprised if anyone gets double figures.

i'm sure a number of us would fancy having PSB as our specialist subject on Mastermind - but imagine if you did and these were the questions...
