Philofaxy Valentines Quiz 2011

So a quiz to test your Philofaxy knowledge... not quite Mastermind, or University Challenge.

I hope you will be able to find your way through my maze of questions until you get to the end of the Yellow Brick Road and you get to answer the final question and submit your entry to us so you can register your entry for the prize giveaway.

So how do you take part? It is simple.... you need to find the answer to the first question below, when you find the answer to that question you will find a link to the next question, and so on and so on.

As a hint each link is the word or words that is the answer to the question with * * each side of the link so you know you have found the right one.

There are 10 questions in total, some easy, some hard, but all of the answers are contained within the Philofaxy blog. To find the answers you can use the labels cloud or the Google search box, or the archive index.

If you want to try and solve the answers with other readers on the site, then you are open to share your thoughts, clues, hints in the comments to this thread. However, the arrival of the final answer emails will determine who will be a prize winner or not... so the further you get through the questions.. you might not want to share the answers quite as freely....

The quiz will remain on line all week, the winner will not be declared until 14 February. A league table of finishers will be published on the blog, along with the answers to each of the questions with links to the posts which had the hidden the links in them.

So the starter question:

Question 1: In the beginning what did Philofaxer allow to gather dust. 

So good luck with your quest and most of all enjoy the quiz....

  3. First question was easy - I remembered that post. But now I just can't find the answer to the second question - I have searched the blog for about half an hour by now...

  5. So should I give out any clues yet?

    I might have been too clever with the final question... we will see how many people get the right answer!

  8. The final question I found hard - I'm hoping I got it right! Is there a prize?

  9. No fair! I didn't get any clues. I totally enjoyed it though. Excellent job Steve!

  10. Well I'm getting quite a few people getting the right answer now to the final question... although I'm not 100% sure you are all arriving at the answer in quite the way I intended, but that doesn't matter does it really.....

    Yes there is a prize.... possibly more than one prize...

    But the main thing is I hope you enjoyed it, exercise the brain box a little and also find out how to find older posts on the blog!

    I think this might be popular enough to try again in the future? Let me know your thoughts and I will see what I can dream up!

  12. Thanks for the little diversion! It was fun to hunt, and fun to revisit some of those older posts. I'd almost forgotten about the early days and my own sporadic comments.

  13. I was fashionably late for this party, but it was a good one. Very fun! I'll be interested to see what the *real* final answer is!

  14. I think I got the final answer at about 3am! If I did, I got it wrong first time round, I took you too literally Steve!

  15. So I am the only one who didn't get beyond question 2 yet? How very frustrating - and embarassing...

  16. Me, I got a bit stuck at question nr. 6. That DID take quite some time to solve. The others were fairly easy, because as a translator I've mastered Google!!
    It was a lot of fun, I really enjoyed this. Felt a bit like the childhood "scavenger hunts". I love games and puzzles!

  17. Oh no Iris dont give up, use google for question 2 and it will help you!
    I had so much fun with this quiz. Maybe we could have one for easter?
