November 2020 – Lockdown Game – Win £10

Each day this month there will be a question, anagram or some other random teaser to test your brain. If you manage to answer correctly you will receive 2 entries into the draw. If you get the answer wrong you will receive 1 entry (just for giving it a try). All entries will be pooled at the end of the month and one winner drawn at random.

As November is the month of the National Lockdown, I thought I would try something a bit different. Different types of puzzles, games and similar each day. Some will be ones you are used to such as anagram, missing letters, but there might be some new types too.

The competition started on 1st November 2020 and runs until the end of the month. The last game will be shown on 30th November 2020, with the winner being announced here on 1st December 2020. The winner will then have 24 hours to claim their £10 cash prize. If you don’t claim your prize before 11am on 2nd December 2020 you will unfortunately lose out. No late claims accepted.

I think I will give today’s question a miss. Whilst it was brilliantly explained by David Tennant when he was the tenth Doctor and I hung on every word, I can’t remember it after about 13 years!

Stacy

say prime numbers to kids today and they’ll either think amazon prime or optimus prime lol

If you ever go there, take that popular photo of yourself with a tilted hand “holding it up!” You know you want to. 🙂

Paul

Lee
Member
Lee

ALL the numbers on a die (singular of dice) add up to 21. The numbers on opposite sides add up to 7.

Paul
Member
Paul

yeah I meant on opposite sides

I always thought this was a fruit, you learn something new every day.

purplevamp

If you look it up in Wikipedia it tells you. So basically every pie or crumble you put it in you’re eating veg. Can’t imagine eating custard with veg though!

tracy
Member

Me too, after all these years I have been wrong calling it a fruit.

Stacy

She looks so happy there, such a shame what happened.

purplevamp

A name came into my head so I googled it (I know, cheater!!) and I was right 🙂

tracy

Took a punt today.

A few names jump out to me. So we’ll have to see if my first thought is correct

Stuart

Not Ruby Wax then 😁 I’d never have thought it was Amy Winehouse until I saw it today and then its so obvious 😃😃

Christine

This has driven me mad, I’ve trawled the Internet and only got it this morning at !.20 am. Phew!!!!

i put great wall of china as i thought it asked what the landmark was rather than what country is it in.

Stuart
Member
Stuart

Yes me too. it definitely said what is it? rather than where is it?

Heather10
Member

I also put the great wall of china, presumably this will also be accepted

Daniel, how did you work out the answer to yesterday’s question? I spent ages on it and could only come up with 62 as an answer.

Daniel
Member
Daniel

Starting from +4, you add two onto the amount you add each time – so 2+4 is 6, +6 is 12, +8 is 20, +10 is 30 and so on.

Gillian
Member
Gillian

Thank you Daniel, but where did the +4 come from to start with?

Daniel
Member
Daniel

If it started at 0, the first +2 would give you the first 2 – then the +4.
I know I’m not the Daniel you asked, but frankly I was chuffed when I worked it out!

Gillian
Member
Gillian

You clever clogs. It just frustrated the heck out of me, but at least I now know how to do it for the next time. 🙂

liverpoolgirl
Member

Hmm, yesterday’s question is still up. It’s only 11.09 though so I’ll check back later.

jan
Member

So yesterday’s question had two possible answers both of which you accept, when i said Paris for statue of libery which was a perfectly correct answer it wasn’t the answer you wanted. Please use same rules for all your comps

Claire
Member

Stuart

I’ve guessed so we will see tomorrow if I’m right

Stuart

Paul

Jackie
Member
Jackie

Have to agree with you on that but hey ho thats how it goes sometimes.

Stuart
Member

The only reason I selected Mango was because of the shape

Heather10

The slice looked like a peach but the fruit a mango

I wasn’t sure if the double emoji was meant to mean twice that number or doubling the digit itself (i.e. if the number was 2, whether it meant 4 or 22?) so I’ve put both answers in one, I hope that’s ok!
Liking the jumbled questions idea for this month btw 🙂

liverpoolgirl
Member
liverpoolgirl

I wondered about the doubled emojis but then talked myself out of doubling the numbers. Grrr. I won’t listen to myself in future!

Paul
Member

This is one of the weird maths ones where you have to do the adding up before the times bit of it I think…

Paul

wendymurray3

wendymurray3

The multiplication sign caught me out. I added them all 🙁

tracy

Susan
