Hurrah!

Since you're filling the roles of both Xander and Richard here, I feel you should have a proper introduction. Something like...

"If obscurity was an enchanted dungeon, he would be its master. He's our Pointless friend... he's Jake 'Eyeshield' Collins!" :D

Welcome to the second game of Knightmare Pointless! We asked all our Knightmare-related questions to 8 people, and now it's up to our four fabulous contestants - Rosey, Annie, Amy and Ben - to find the most obscure answers they can think of. One of them will earn the chance to find a Pointless answer in the jackpot final.

A couple of important points to bear in mind:
1. For the purposes of this, "character" means any role that's been confirmed as having been played by a credited Knightmare actor, except uncredited, unnamed individual creatures/monsters.
2. The unbroadcast pilot episodes (from 1986/7) and Knightmare VR (from 2004) are not taken into account for any question.

Right, let's play Knightmare Pointless!

ROUND 1

In the first round, each of you will give me two answers. Whoever has the highest score at the end of the round will be eliminated. If you give a wrong answer, you will score the maximum of 8 points.

We gave 8 people 100 seconds to name...

UNUSED SPELLS

So that's any spell that was ever in a team's itinerary but was not cast. This could be because the dungeoneer died or the series ended (or both) before the team had got round to casting the spell, or because the spell was abandoned on the advice of a character.

Please note - the team must have been in a position to cast the spell, i.e. they must have "had" it, or at least had the opportunity to actually cast it. Any incomplete spells being collected or possible spells being offered for sale will not count. In other words, if you go for a spell that a team was offered a chance to buy or collect which they rejected or fluffed, your answer will be wrong.

Please also note - some of the correct answers on this list are spells that were actually cast at some point, but they were unused for a particular team. For example, if two teams earned a spell called FLAME and one of them cast it but the other one didn't, FLAME would be a correct answer, as it was unused for at least one team!

Please ALSO also note - spells that were cast fully but did not activate properly because they were cast in the wrong place do NOT count as uncast spells for this question.

Rosey gets to go first - which is not necessarily an advantage, of course - and we'll find out her answer very soon I'm sure!

Rosey says GHOST - let's see what that scores her...

Image

Sarah and friends (Team 3 of Series 5) had a GHOST spell when they died. Would it have had the same effect as Martin's GHOST spell in Series 3? I guess we'll never know for sure! Rosey scores 1 point.

Damn, I thought of that one too!

I might be about to crash and burn here, but I *think* (and hope) I remember Grimaldine giving a RETURN spell to one of the teams that died in Goth?

Annie says RETURN - let's see what that scores her...

Hearty congratulations, Annie - a pointless answer! You are 100% right - in the boat in the Sewers of Goth, Grimaldine gave this spell to Simon's team (the first of Series 7) with the words, "It cannot help you succeed, but it may help you home." Simon then went on to die at Play Your Cards Right, but we saw the effect of this spell later in the same series, when it was cast by Julie's winning team. So, Annie scores no points, and no one can do better than that in this game!

Amy says GLORY - let's see what that scores her...

GLORY was gifted to Leo (Team 4 of Series 3) by Mogdred, which means that casting it would probably not have been the best idea! Amy scores 2 points.

We're now going to come back down the line for the second pass. Remember, players, whoever has the highest score at the end of the round will be the first to leave us. Ben, it's time for your second answer. As you are the joint high scorer (with Amy) you will not be able to ensure your place in the second round no matter what you score - you will just have to be as obscure as possible and hope for the best!
