A different sort of quiz… (ii) the answers and round 2

Yesterday we did something different and went to the small town of Axbridge, to a pub called the Lamb. As I mentioned, we had very fine beer and wine, and there was a quiz in progress; we were too late to join in but we listened to the questions and answered them quietly between ourselves. It was a different quiz from the one we are used to – and two rounds seemed really fun. One was  a round in which the last letter of the answer of one question was the first letter of the answer to the next! The other was a round where all the answers contained the word ‘hat’!

Just for fun, I gave you ten questions, last letter/first letter and here are the answers :

  1. What is the capital of Tibet? (The last letter of your answer will be the first letter of answer number 2) Lhasa
  2. What is the range of mountains running down the west coast of South America? Andes
  3. What spice comes from  crocus flower? Saffron
  4. What was the name of Captain Nemo’s submarine? Nautilus

  7. In which Yorkshire town could you find the Piece Hall? Halifax
  8. A warrior princess – Xena
