Quiz - Week 14

As many of you know I host a quiz night every Monday at a local pub. It is always great fun and I not only enjoy the atmosphere but it is also great to get out, socialise and stretch some brain cells. 

It is quite simple:

There are 6 Question rounds of a variety of content containing 5 questions. Some of these questions hold multiple points so watch out for those! 

At the end of the quiz determine which round that you want to play your "Joker" on and this allows you to double the points for that round. 

Then on Friday I will be post the answers on my Facebook page. Then, if you want, you can come back to this post via the link and comment what your weekly score is!
