You want a *hard* Richard Armitage quiz?
Entries for the King Richard Armitage Week 2012 puzzle to benefit charity have closed!
There’s been some grousing about how difficult the quiz was, but let me give you difficult. I used to play on a trivia team in high school and context organizers would sometimes ask questions like, in the commercial for Glad Wrap made in 1985, seven different fruits fall on a bowl covered with Glad Wrap. What were the fruits, and in which order did they fall?
Of course, if someone asked that question today you’d just look on youtube.
So / But. If I were going to write a Richard Armitage / John Porter quiz that was really difficult, this kind of item (below) is definitely a place I would look to create questions.
For instance: What is John Dean’s mother’s name?
Now that is hardcore. That is difficult.
And that is also a thumbshot. See how I worked that in?
Winners announced tomorrow!
Also to mention — The #ArmitageWatch people on twitter are organizing a group read of The Sunne in Splendour (in case you don’t know — the book that piqued the interest of Mr. Armitage, senior, and Mr. Armitage, junior, in the project — author, Sharon Kay Penman, it was a clue in the quiz!) to raise awareness of Richard Armitage’s interest in the Richard III project. We hope to do some fun activities to accompany and keep everyone reading along.
Discussions are still underway, so keep checking that space and this space for details. Right now they are projecting to start on September 23rd. I’ll be sure to update you as soon as I know anything.
