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...

Quizm with 75%, followed by Village Idiots with 71% and Old Hamtonwellians with 66%

Katy were the best team of 2 with 50%

Overall I think these scores show that the quiz was a bit too hard, so we'll make it a bit easier next time.
