Greg says Sylvester Hands. Let's see what that scores him...

Image

It's another big score, Greg - you're just going to have to hope and pray that Ben answers incorrectly! Sylvester Hands is one of only two characters to appear in spyglass sequences in all four series featuring spyglasses - 5, 6, 7 and 8. Greg, you score 7 points, bringing your total to 14.

ROSS
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

BEN
Answer 1 - 6
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

GREG
Answer 1 - 7
Answer 2 - 7
TOTAL - 14

GEZ
Answer 1 - 8
Answer 2 - 3
TOTAL - 11

Ben, it's your turn again. Our current high scorer is Greg on 14. If you score 7 or less, you're definitely through to the next round. Please post your second answer.

Ben says Hordriss. Let's see what that scores him...

Image

Hordriss appeared in three spyglass sequences - one in Series 6, one in Series 7 and one in Series 8. Congratulations, Ben - you score 6 points, bringing your total to 12, and taking you safely through to the next round. Bad news for Greg, though - that means he's definitely going to be the first player to leave us!

ROSS

BEN
Answer 1 - 6

GREG

Answer 2 - 7
TOTAL - 14


GEZ

Ross, we come back to you. It doesn't matter what answer you give because you're through to the next round anyway, so why don't you try and wow us with the most obscure answer you can think of?

Ross says Bhal-Shebah. Let's see what that scores him...

Image

Bhal-Shebah appeared in two Series 8 spyglass sequences - one silently, the other very vocally. Ross scores 5 points, bringing his total to 10.

This has been quite a high-scoring round. Gez gave us the best answer with Sidriss, but there were several other low scorers out there. Let's take a look at the whole board:

Lissard - 7
Lord Fear - 7
Skarkill - 7
Sylvester Hands - 7
Greystagg - 6
Hordriss - 6
Julius Scaramonger - 6
Maldame - 6
Bhal-Shebah - 5
Heggatty - 5
Honesty Bartram - 5
Aesandre - 4
Brollachan - 4
Captain Nemanor - 3
Grimaldine - 3
Marta - 3
Raptor - 3
Sidriss/Bimboid - 3
Dreadnort - 1

So, at the end of Round 1, the scoreboard looks like this:

ROSS
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - 5
TOTAL - 10

BEN
Answer 1 - 6
Answer 2 - 6
TOTAL - 12

GREG
Answer 1 - 7
Answer 2 - 7
TOTAL - 14


GEZ
Answer 1 - 8
Answer 2 - 3
TOTAL - 11

And so we say goodbye to Greg - bad luck and thanks for playing! Ross, Ben and Gez move on to Round 2, which will follow shortly. Which of the three of them will earn the chance to play for a fantastic Knightmare badge in our jackpot final?

Knightmare Pointless - Round 2

Post by Eyeshield » Thu Sep 22, 2011 9:19 pm

ROUND 2 - FIRST PASS

DUNGEONEER DEATHS

You’re about to see a board of seven dungeoneers. We asked 8 people to tell us how each of them died in the Knightmare Dungeon. Players, you must each choose a dungeoneer and identify the creature, person or thing that killed them. We have got:

Image

Which deaths have stuck in the minds of our eight people? We'll soon find out. Ross, you're up. Nominate a dungeoneer and name the cause of death.

I'm impressed that someone remembered Dreadnort within the time limit - it took me ages to think of him and the Bimboid, so I guessed they would be the lowest scoring answers!

*is loving the game so far*

I hope you'll be a contestant in the second game of Knightmare Pointless. Rosey wants to play, so I'll be looking for three forum members to join her.

I think I know them all but have no idea which will be the lowest scoring. I'll go for Nicky - Ariadne.

Ross says Nicky - Ariadne. Let's see what that scores him...

Image

For the want of an answer a spell was lost, for the want of a spell the game was lost. For the third time in this game, Ross, you score 5 points!

Answer 2 - ?

Ben, there are six answers left on the board for you:

In which case, you're in! I can't promise exactly when the second game will be - late October/early November is my aim.

Ben says Danny - Bomb. Let's see what that scores him...

After a wrong turn that Treguard was extremely scornful of, Danny was indeed blown up by a bomb. Ben, you score a respectibly low 4 points.
