Yes, it struck me it was only half a history question. But I'm not complaining Smile

Question 11 is really bothering me: I'm sure it's going to enbd up being something really obvious and I just can't figure it out. Although I didn't have too many problems figuring out the obscure answer to question 20. Go figure...

Well, it seems that the trick resides in reading... so all people having English as their first language should find the answer easierly..

And all difficult answers are obvious... But I am relatively sure that we all history pro's are so smart we overlook the simple answers.

I asked one from a friend in school, I thought the answer was 'dynamite' (which it wasn't), he took a quick look and told me the correct one.. like the most obvious thing on Earth.

So far Decebal has been the only one to try number 20 - and get it right in the first try Smile Star 

I originally intended number 20 to be a round 2 question, but Decebal has used his superb logic to get it on his first try!

thank you poirot! The question is not that bad if you read it very carefully. If you wish, I can tell you afterwards how I got it.

Now if I can only use my logic to answer the other questions, I'd be in business, but I seem to be going around in circles!

Less than a day remaining for round one of the quiz! Wink I can tell you that the answers to the last four are fairly obscure, but some of them relate to very "not-obscure" topics.

Scores updated again. Question 17 is still not answered but we're considering an alternative answer to it at the moment at the request of a participant.

I thought my (second) answer to question 16 fitted it exactly: n fact it seems to me there were several other people who could have fitted.
 
My candidate was eventually executed by the ruler, but he was first exiled.
 
However it depends somewhat on how many centuries make 'many'.Smile

Score is updated - equal top 3 scores Clap
 
Decebal actually leads by the tip of his nose as his score will be adjusted for his own question at the closure of the Quiz.

Let the last 10 be safe and sound... although if 17 would be answered, it'd be a cool trick...
