You are invited to join us in a game of Trivial Pursuit.

Loosely based around the popular board game, your task is to answer questions, (or in this case, puzzles), in order to win 'wedgies' for each of the six categories, Geography, Entertainment, History, Art & Literature, Science & Nature and Sport & Leisure.

There are six rounds of four puzzles to complete to receive your wedgies. The first three puzzles in each round are random categories. The last puzzle in each round wins the wedgie for that round's category. The final round consists of six puzzles, one from each category and will come in the same order as the completed rounds.

I'll stop trifling with your curiosity and hand you the prawn cocktail.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Trifle Trivial, the latest contest devised by mistermickster will be launched on Tuesday 18th January at 12:00 (midday) GMT.

Really looking forward to this one. Thumbs up

Not sure I understood that paragraph of rules though...
Are you saying that the puzzles are presented to us in a random order?
Will different puzzlers be given different puzzles?

Sorry, no the puzzles aren't completely random. It's just that to gain each wedgie you will have to solve puzzles from other categories.

A sleepless night, alas (cough, cold, etc). I was knackered the next day! Getting too old for this up all night lark, methinks. (Now where's the smiley with the walking stick? Smile )
