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

& the winners were...

Village Idiots with 84%, followed by Stay Reem with 81%, and Les with 78%.

Stay Reem only had 2 players, so their score was particularly impressive!
