EE's Dastardly Quiz for Non-Wimps - END

*Thanks to liberal for the banner.

For some reason or another FG&Q hasn't seen an actual quiz since the move here to SONM, so I am here to rectify that.

Welcome to EE's Dastardly Quiz for Non-Wimps. You can probably tell from the title that this is a quiz, made by moi, for the non-wimps amongst you, with a dastardly little twist. "But what is the dastardly twist?" I here you ask. Well let me tell you.

You see, back on ONM quizzes generally all stuck to the same formula, the formula being that you answer questions and if you get them right you get glorious points! Happy, happy, joy, joy! However, there was never any kind of penalty for getting questions incorrect, and that's where my dastardly twist comes in.

The Twist

Getting a question correct will earn you 1 point (shock horror!), but getting a question incorrect will cost you a point. Passing on a question, however, will not cost you a point. "So what's stopping us from passing every question we don't know?" you ask, "The 3 pass maximum" I reply. Yep, you may only pass on a maximum of 3 questions per round, all others must be answered whether you know them or not. Dastardly, right?

Speaking of rounds, there will be ten of them and each will contain 10 questions, which means there are a total of 100 points up for grabs.

There's no set theme for this quiz, questions can be about anything and everything (except video games since Fabong's already peed over that and made it his territory). Questions will be posted every Monday and the answers posted every Sunday, so make sure to get your answers in by then. Please PM all your answers to me, don't post them in here. And please don't look up answers online, that just ruins the point of this being a quiz.

I think that's everything covered then. Round 1 will be up later today. Happy quizzing!

Damn, I was going to bring back One Star Reviews in the next week or so, guess I'm going to have to wait.

I don't watch much UK TV but I'll give it a try, but I'll probably fail

I know enough of these to feel that I have to enter.

I don't, however, know enough of these to keep myself in positive numbers.

I will admit I completely forgot about the losing points rule, that is to say, the whole premise of the quiz.
