I thought Casper was a great answer, he never occurred to me at all!

Ben has until 9am tomorrow to post his third answer, or Nick will go straight through to the second round. Just to remind everyone, here are the correct answers we have had so far:

BROTHER MACE - 2
CASPER - 5
FATILLA - 2
FOLLY - 3
GUNDRADA - 6
PIXEL - 3
RIDOLFO - 0
SIR HUGH - 3

There are still 10 correct answers on this list! Just to make things interesting, I'll tell you that 3 of them would win it for Ben, 5 of them would win it for Nick, and 2 of them would tie with Pixel - I hope that doesn't happen!

I'll try Velda. This had better be correct.

Ben says Velda - let's see what that scores him...

Image

This may be a slightly controversial one, but Velda never actually went through a door or portal with a dungeoneer. The closest she came was telling James to follow her through one, but our independent judge (a well respected authority on Knightmare named Jake Collins) decided before the questions went out that this would not count as an escort, as it was really more of a follow.

The boys have battled it out to join the girls in Round 2, and Nick has emerged victorious. Bad luck, Ben - thanks very much for playing. Perhaps we'll see you again in a future game of Knightmare Pointless, but it's ciao for now.

So, at last, we can take a look at the whole board for that question:

CEDRIC - 7
MOTLEY - 7
GUNDRADA - 6
HORDRISS - 6
CASPER - 5
MELLISANDRE - 5
SIDRISS - 5
FOLLY - 3
GWENDOLINE - 3
MCGREW - 3
PIXEL - 3
SIR HUGH - 3
BROTHER MACE - 2
FATILLA - 2
ROMAHNA - 2
ELITA - 1
FIDJIT - 0
RIDOLFO - 0

There you have it, then. For Nick, Amy and Annie, it's now time for Round 2. Only two of them can make it through to the head-to-head, but who'll be next to fall by the wayside? We'll know before too long!

ROUND 2

SPELL GIVERS


You're about to see a board of six spells. We asked 8 people to tell us which character awarded each one to a dungeoneer. Players, you must each choose a spell and name the character that bestowed it on a dungeoneer. We have got:

Image

You can rest assured that each of these spells was only ever given out by one specific character, so there is no room for ambiguity here. Excitingly, there is one pointless answer available on this board, if only someone can be clever or lucky enough to winkle it out!

Nick, you are first to play. Please nominate your spell and name the character that gave it to a dungeoneer.

A tricky board indeed, and I can't claim to know all the answers. With the presence of a pointless answer, I cannot decide whether to be conservative or take a pop at a pointless. Having said that, I have somehow made it to this round, so perhaps I should stick with what I know and say that CHANGE was awarded by Julius Scaramonger.

Nick says CHANGE - Julius Scaramonger. Let's see what that scores him...

Image

As most people know, Julius Scaramonger sold the spell CHANGE to Series 5's Chris and it turned him into a goblin! Nick, you score 5 points.

NICK
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

Amy, it's over to you. Which one are you going for?

I really should've gone for McGrew. I thought his score would've been much higher than it was :(

Okay then lets see. I know! SHADE was given by Honesty Bartrum.

Amy says SHADE - Honesty Bartram. Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Well done, Amy - you've found the pointless answer, which scores you no points! None of our 8 people remembered that SHADE was given to Series 8's Daniel by Honesty Bartram in exchange for a SIGHT potion, although it's still somewhat unclear just who got the better of that deal!

NICK
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

AMY
Answer 1 - 0
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

Annie, we come to you. Which one are you going for?

Surprising, I thought LOOK would be the pointless answer. I'll have a go at that one anyway - I'm reasonably sure it was the first of the seeing-eye spells handed out in Series 7, and I hope to goodness it was Grimaldine that supplied it.

Annie says LOOK - Grimaldine. Let's see what that scores her...

Image

Quite right in every detail once again, Annie, and 2 points are earned as a result. So, at the end of the first pass, the scoreboard looks like this:

NICK
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

AMY
Answer 1 - 0
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

Now, let's take a look at the whole board:

Image

And so we move on to the second pass. Remember, whoever has the highest score after this will be eliminated. Here are the next six spells:

Image

Again, each of these spells was only ever given out by one specific character, so there is no room for ambiguity. There is another pointless answer available here, if only someone can be clever or lucky enough to winkle it out!

Annie, you're up again. Please nominate your spell and name the character that gave it to a dungeoneer. Our current high scorer is Nick on 5. If you score 2 or less, you are definitely through to the head-to-head.

Hmmm, I knew all of the previous board but only four of these. I'm torn between two answers and I just know I'm going to pick the wrong one. TRANSFORM - Velda!

Annie says TRANSFORM - Velda. Let's see what that scores her...

Image

TRANSFORM was the only spell that Velda ever gave out. Kelly was the lucky recipient, and it turned her into an armoured knight. Congratulations, Annie - that scores you 1 point, and sees you safely through to the head-to-head.

NICK
Answer 1 - 5
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

AMY
Answer 1 - 0
Answer 2 - ?
TOTAL - ?

ANNIE
Answer 1 - 2
Answer 2 - 1
TOTAL - 3

Amy, we come to you. Please nominate your spell and name the character that gave it to a dungeoneer. Our current high scorer is still Nick on 5. If you score 4 or less, you will be through to the head-to-head with Annie, and Nick will be out.
