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...

It was Harry from Old Hamtonwellians' last quiz at The Landor - good luck in Singapore Harry, and thanks for being such a loyal player!
