Christmas Quiz – General Knowledge – Round 1

Easy round I thought although the averages were taken down a bit by those taking advantage of the prize giveaways and free food as it was a christmas quiz and the last of the year.
Average score on this round for regular quiz attendees was 11/15 , with the scores of those that left as soon as food was served and prize draw done at half time the average would have been 7 out of 15.
