General Knowledge 2018 Week 1 Round 1

Standard General Knowledge  – Free Pub Quiz

This one did not go down too well with a score average of 9/15 but it is different and that is what I like about the pub quizzes I produce.  The team scores change all the time and there is not a constant winning team. You either know the answer or you do not.
