The quiz is a no iPhone zone. It just spoils it for everyone. If you see someone on another team using their iPhone then take a picture of them with your phone. If we all work together we can beat this.

& the winners were...

Stephen Hawking's Football Boots with 76%, followed by Defanasaurus Rex (sorry if I've spelt that wrong) with 75%, and Quiz Akabusi with 74%.

Donuts were the best team of 2, with 51%

Overall it was too hard, with the last 2 rounds baffling most teams. It'll be easier next month!
