Good answer, I didn't think of that one! You've probably won this...

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

Again, there's hardly anything in it, but Annie wins the question and Knightmare Pointless III with it! Hearty congratulations, Annie - you are the new Knightmare Pointless champion. Amy, you are the runner-up for the second time, but I promise you will get another chance to become the champion if you want one!

Now, here are all the Hordriss and Motley spells:

FIRE - 5
BUT - 4
SPLASH - 4
TRANSFORMATION - 4
JOKE - 3
BIG - 2
FREEZE - 2
OPPOSITE - 2
SLOW - 2
DASH - 1
DRINK - 1
GHOST - 1
SPEED - 1
BAG - 0
HERO - 0

I will post the jackpot final before the end of the day.

ROUND 4 - JACKPOT FINAL

Annie, you are the new Knightmare Pointless champion, and you now have three chances to win the Knightmare Pointless jackpot. As I said before, I don't have any more Knightmare badges, so the prize is an original copy of the first ever issue of The Eye Shield fanzine (which has never really been seen online in its full, original glory!) signed by longtime TES contributor and editor Jake Collins. All you have to do is find a pointless answer to our final question. We gave 8 people 100 seconds to name...

UNIQUELY NAMED DUNGEONEERS

So that's any dungeoneer who has a first name not shared with any other dungeoneer or advisor.

Now, here are my attempts to clarify the question and forestall quibbles:
1) This is phonetic - if names sound the same, they are the same, so Susie the dungeoneer would NOT be a correct answer, even though she spells her name differently from Suzie the advisor. (Most contestant name spellings are somewhat speculative anyway!)
2) Names that are obvious contractions (or lengthenings) of shared names are also not allowed, such as Phil/Phillip - for the purposes of this, they are both the same name.
3) Also, I am not accepting dungeoneer names that sound slightly different because of the regional accents of their advisors.
I hope all that's clear enough!

So Annie, please post three dungeoneer names that you believe to be totally unique among Knightmare contestants. If one of them is pointless, you will win the jackpot!

Good grief! That's a stinker, especially considering I hardly remember any advisor names!

I'll steer clear of the more exotic/unusual names as I expect people would think of those first. So, having listed as many as I can think of (though I'm probably missing a few from Series 2 and 3), I shall pick out.... Gavin, Duncan, Jeremy?

Hmm...this looks promising. I've can't remember someone called Duncan so you're in for a good chance Annie.

There are actually seven pointless answers available for this question, although stumbling across any one of them would surely require a good deal of luck! Let's see whether Annie's been lucky enough...

Is Gavin a pointless answer? Let's see...

Image

Unfortunately, Gavin the dungeoneer from Series 3 shares his name with Gavin the advisor from Series 6 - he was one of Chris's. So, what about Duncan? Let's see...

Image

Series 5's Duncan is indeed uniquely named, but someone remembered him - curses! So, we come to Annie's final answer - Jeremy. Is that a pointless answer?

Image

Sadly, it isn't. Jeremy the dungeoneer from Series 4 shares his name with Jeremy the advisor from Series 3 - he was one of Scott's.

So, Annie, you haven't won the Knightmare Pointless jackpot this time, but you're still our champion and you should hold your head extremely high! Let's take a look at all the correct answers for that question, including the seven pointlesses that would have won you the jackpot:

AKASH - 4
BARRY - 4
DICKON - 4
DUNSTAN - 4
GILES - 4
JULIAN - 4
SUMAYYA - 3
JANUARY - 2
MAEVE - 2
NAILA - 2
CLIFF - 1
DUNCAN - 1
ROSS - 1
SOPHIA - 1
ALISTAIR - 0
DOUGLAS - 0
JENNA - 0
LEO - 0
MICHAEL - 0
SCOTT - 0
STUART - 0

Fans of Knightmare Pointless, join me again soon for the fourth game. Thanks once again to Annie, Amy, Nick and Ben for playing this time.

Haha! Never mind, I'm just glad I did better than last time! Can't say I have any memory of those advisors at all. I almost went for Alistair instead of Jeremy but I thought it was more likely to be a shared name! Very surprised Leo was a pointless answer, being such a memorable quest... and I can't believe there was only ever one Michael!

I really enjoyed that, good game everyone. :D

Aww hard luck Annie but at least you're the winner.
I'm actually surprised about most of these answers myself and I'm surprised someone remembered Duncan. 8-o
