Knightmare Chat Trivia

Over the last few years, a few people have suggested adding trivia to Knightmare chat . Generally I've resisted this, because I don't want to be responsible for having to add general knowledge questions to a database, and I didn't consider it likely that other people would do so. Well, it's taken me...

Re: And I'm here to say hi

Hello!

Good to hear from you :)

Probably your best port-of-call is Knightmare chat on Sunday evenings (8pm):
https://www.knightmare.com/home/chat

There's usually a handful of people around.

Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

As a fan, one of the surprises of hearing from Knightmare contestants in subsequent years has been that some of those who 'didn't do well' from a watcher's point of view (compared to other teams) still had a winning experience, simply through getting to be on Knightmare. I guess that in participati...

Re: When is the next Knightmare convention happening?

Realistically, it's unlikely to happen. About a year ago, we did a full-scale cost analysis on running another convention, and we couldn't find a way to do it. Most places with sufficient video capability had tiny audience seating, and most places with big audience seating didn't have the video capa...

Re: Question for contestants: meeting adjacent teams

I recall that it was strongly discouraged. I seem to recall the rules (or one of the bits of paperwork we had) not exactly prohibiting it, but strongly discouraging us from interacting and sharing information. Keep in mind that the backup team was called as soon as the primary team started, and it w...

Re: Series 8, Episode 10

Speaking of forgotten memories, it stands to reason that Alan and I met all those summers ago - even though I can’t recall it. Indeed we did. But of course, they did their best to keep consecutive teams apart as much as possible so that we didn't share anything with each other. I recall you chaps c...

Re: Series 8, Episode 10

Thanks for filling in the gaps there. Your experience sounds very similar to my own - although I don't recall getting information about the edit time, I suspect it was more relevant to your team :)

Re: The Midnight Hunt

We’ve looked at a couple of re-enactment villages, which would have been great. However, finding one that is big enough, accessible, and happy to participate has proven impossible. A warehouse could be another possibility. But you’d need a big one. With stuff in it. But it needs to be safe stuff. An...

Re: The Midnight Hunt

I won’t run it without insurance and at the moment the only insurer that we’ve had contact with wouldn’t even quote us because the event was perceived to be too dangerous in its current form due to traffic. We could give each team their own guide/GM but it’s unclear how much training they would need...

If we have sufficient interest, we'll go ahead with the e...

Re: BUT spell

OR, Tim knew the team was going to die and simply picked a random word out of the dictionary, knowing that the spell's true purpose (and even its spelling) would never be revealed? :)

Re: Knightmare RPG

I'm sure he'll do better whenever we see him next. As Robin pointed out there was little guidance as to time limits :)
