Knightmare QI VIII

Post by Eyeshield » Thu May 01, 2008 8:56 am

The Eye Shield presents yet another round of Knightmare QI. These questions have been written by Liam Callaghan, who is keen to catch you all out, so be careful!

1. What does the following sequence represent? 19, 31, 39, 48, 55, 69.
2. Which was the least common quest object?
3. During which quest did Mellisandre first appear?
4. What was the most common contestant name?
5. What does this sequence represent? MA1, TA1, CR6, SH11, CR12, SW12, SH14, CR16.

7. What number did all the series 3 dungeoneers roll on the die?
8. Which method of changing levels had the longest lifespan?
9. Throughout all eight series of Knightmare, how many contestants died?
10. How many characters said “Enter, Stranger,” during Knightmare’s run?

As usual, four points are available for each question – one for supplying the correct answer, one for identifying the cliché, and two for any Quite Interesting supplementary information that is vaguely relevant to the question. E-mail your answers to eyeshield2002@hotmail.com or PM them to me by Sunday June 22nd 2008, and you could be the next champion of Knightmare QI. Wouldn’t that be something? Answers and results will be revealed in issue 52.

Knightmare QI IX

Post by Eyeshield » Tue Jul 01, 2008 9:50 am

1. What is the only letter of the alphabet never to have been spellcast?
2. Which of these characters is the odd one out: Sir Hugh, Pixel, the Samurai or Gwendoline? See if you can conjure up the correct answer.
3. Excluding winners’ trophies, in how many series of Knightmare did frightknights feature?
4. Which of these spells is the odd one out: HERO, HEROES, HOME or WIND?
5. Whose pet cat do we see during series 6?
6. Which of these is the odd one out: Folly, Merlin, wellways or Lillith? You might want to discuss this question with others at a later date.
7. What does the sequence 7, 15, 15, 12, 14, 13, 14, 15 signify? Finalise your answer.
8. Who was the first character to mispronounce something in Latin on Knightmare?
9. Which of these characters is the odd one out: Hordriss, Smirkenorff or Gumboil? As ever, Quite Interesting supplementary information will earn you credit.
10. How many teams met an “Ooh, nasty!” end in series 4?

These questions come from the mind of Knightmare QI Master Drassil himself, so expect no mercy, although there are a few clues for you in there, if you can spot them. As usual, four points are available for each question – one for supplying the correct answer, one for identifying the cliché (or, in the case of TWO of these questions, the lack of a cliché) and two for any Quite Interesting supplementary information that is vaguely relevant to the question. E-mail your answers to eyeshield2002@hotmail.com or PM them to me by Saturday August 16th 2008 and you could be the next Knightmare QI champion. Just imagine how great that would feel! Answers and results will be revealed in issue 53.

Knightmare QI XII

Post by Eyeshield » Sun Mar 01, 2009 11:06 am

Oh happy day, Knightmare QI is back! These questions come from the devious mind of Jim Waterman.

1. Which is the first episode of Knightmare during which a pooka can be seen?
2. Which is the last episode of Knightmare during which a pooka can be seen?
3. Which is the first team to hear “Ooh, nasty!” from Treguard?
4. Which is the last quest to feature the original Helmet of Justice?
5. How many of Knightmare’s contestants can be seen during the closing credits of at least one episode?
6. How many Knightmare characters were seen consuming alcoholic drinks? (This does not include extras at the Crazed Heifer, or any other such drinking establishment.)
7. How many witches were seen making use of a broomstick?

Go on, all you Knightmare QI enthusiasts – have a bash at these, you know you want to! E-mail your answers to eyeshield2002@hotmail.com or PM them to me by Saturday April 18th 2009, and that elusive title of Knightmare QI champion could be yours! Remember, four points are available for each question – one for supplying the correct answer, one for identifying the cliché, and two bonus points for any Quite Interesting supplementary information that is vaguely relevant to the question. Don’t forget to watch out for those clichés – give one as your answer and you lose ten points!

I'm not even going to attempt dude. Knowing me I'd answer them in a totally different way. I'm like the Oracle of Confusion...

Once in my mock exams there was a question in chemistry: "What is water?" I answered: "Melted Steam!" ;D (That was a joke by the way)
If the only way is onward how would you get home for tea?? :-/

You don't have to give the exact answers I've got on my card for QI, by the way, as long as they're actually correct in some way, and not one of the cliches. Do have a go if you feel like it, Fidjit! Here's another answer to the water question - condensed water vapour!

Knightmare QI XIII

Post by Eyeshield » Fri May 01, 2009 11:25 am

Starting next issue, Knightmare QI is going to take a fairly lengthy break, so if you’re still up for more, you’d better enjoy these questions from Drassil while you can!

1. Which team was the last to be DISMISSed by Treguard?
2. Which spell had the greatest number of different casters?
3. Which of these is the odd one out: Samurai, Brollachan, Gretel, Grimwold or Dreadnort?
4. Which three of these are the odd ones in: Sidriss, Puck, Majida, Pixel?
5. What does the sequence 19, 36, 39, 41, 40, 16, 30, 31 signify?
6. Which of these is the odd one out: gauntlet, horn, witch amber or jester’s sceptre?
7. What does the sequence 0, 6, 5, 4, 4, 3, 4, 4 signify?
8. Which of these is the odd one out: Temporal Disruption, Walls of Jericho, the writing on the wall, Powers That Be or Behemoth?
9. How many non-winning teams had two episodes entirely to themselves?
10. Name the odd one out: Mellisandre, Lord Fear, Lissard, Raptor.

As ever, there is a maximum score of four points for each question, including one for giving a correct answer and one for identifying the cliché. Answer with a cliché, of course, and you lose ten points, although only three of these questions actually have specific clichés, so I’ve decided to rock the boat a bit by awarding up to three QI points for each of the other seven! Make those answers as detailed as you can, but be careful – you could still trip over one of those three clichés! E-mail your answers to eyeshield2002@hotmail.com by Saturday June 13th 2009 and you could be the next Knightmare QI Champion – yes, you really could, because Drassil is ineligible to enter since he wrote the questions! Go on, give it a shot!
