  1. Howdy quiz-nuts Bit of a mixed bag here but the correct answer is that the planet Fhloston is indeed in the Angel constellation. Good job! The next question takes us back to the 80’s... What was the highest grossing film of the decade? Was it... A. Top Gun B. Die Hard C. E.T: The Extra Terrestrial “Engage!”
  2. Hello quiz fans! Day two of your questions has arrived! As (almost) everyone rightly guessed yesterday, the answer to the question was indeed: A. The Shape of Water. Today's question takes us to the future, and the world of Luc Besson... In The Fifth Element, in which constellation is the planted Fhloston located? A. Crab B. Archer C. Angel On your marks... get set.... GO!
  3. Ok trivia fans! Only 5 days to go until quiz day, and as it’s the fifth anniversary of the very first Geek Off, I am going to be asking a question every day until Friday. No prizes, just for fun Let’s see how you get on... answers will be revealed with the next day’s question (and at the quiz on Saturday for Friday’s!) Monday’s question: Guillermo del Toro won the Best Director Oscar at the 90th Academy Awards. For what film? A. The Shape of Water B. The Darkest Hour C. Lady Bird Aaaaaaaand.... Go!
  4. Topics have been chosen and the questions are finished. Looking forward to seeing as many people as possible at the event :)
  5. Thanks but its only becuase the event is set as private rather than public. More than happy for people to delete me after they have been invited.
  6. So.... we are having a little vote on the FB event as to what topics we could use for two of the question rounds. If you want to vote, you'll need to be invited into the event. Head to FB and use my username to find me :) Add me as a friend and I can invite you to the event - then you can get cracking! Also, the link is on my profile here :)
  7. Put your forum name down. I’ll post how you can find my FB profile so you can friend request me, and then I can add you to the event. And yes. Totally free :)
  8. First post updated! Add your names to the list if you want adding to the FB event and tell me if you're bringing anyone else List: 1. PenThePirate +1

  10. *UPDATE* The Great LFCC Geek Off - 5.... is going ahead! We have just had confirmation that we will be hosting the event at The Beaconsfield pub opposite the OIympia West entrance again this year on Saturday July 27th at 8pm. I have also had confirmation from the manager that there will be a chef on hand until 9/9.30 so food will definitely be available this time :) Standard rules apply, teams are a maximum of 5, the quiz itself will be 6 rounds - three specialist topics, one pictures round, one music round, and of course - General Nerdlage! I'll be setting up an event on Facebook, so anyone who wants to come can you add your name to the list I have put in my latest post (copy and paste in a new comment) Looking forward to seeing you all!

  15. *ORIGINAL POST EDITED 13/06/18* Hello fellow nerdlings :) FINALLY! After a few quiet weeks waiting to confirm a few bits and bobs... WE HAVE A NEW VENUE! The Great LFCC Geek Off is back for its 4th year in a shiny new home - The Beaconsfield, which is just opposite the exit from Olympia West (24 Blythe Road, W14). Witth just six and a bit weeks to go, there is lots to do to prepare, but rest assured you will get your fix of geeky questions, theme tunes and celebrity pictures to pour over! Due to the short time to prepare I will be putting a poll out for ONE question round to be chosen by you guys through the FB event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/938902049621417/?ti=icl As the show finishes later on Saturday, the quiz will start at approx 8.00pm. Food is available at the pub and I am working on arranging some deals, so I’ll keep you posted For now, let me know if you’re interested in coming, and if you have any questions :) Hope to see you there!

  16. I'm fortunate that I have all of the available main cast apart from Zoe and Jayne, and Chiwetel was awesome in Serenity (and Dr. Strange). Thinking about it more I could add Christina Hendricks and David Krumholtz to that list to have a good set! I would spend ALL the money if those five came :)
  17. Just throwing my hat in the ring with these three: Gina Torres Adam Baldwin Chiwetel Ejiofor :)
  18. Thanks for all the positive responses. Makes it all worth it :)
