Geek Quiz ♯2

Ok, time for the next Quiz. As with last week, 10 questions. You answer a question right, you get a point. Person with the most points wins. The answers will be below a page break, so I'd advise viewing this post through the blog front page so as you don't get spoiler when you view the later questions. And please refrain from posting answers in the comments. Anyway, lets get on with it.

  1. Well, here goes:

    1:-

    5. –

    6. –

    7. –

    9. –
    Moderator Note: Do I really have to put in the main post NOT TO PUT ANSWERS IN THE COMMENTS. Just put your score. Oh and Skoul, fyi you only got 4 points (5 and 6 were right and obviously you got 2 of the wizards)

  2. Hmm, I think I just posted without logging in so it was me, not a pretender.

  3. Sorry! *looks at floor* I got 4

  4. I got 7, (2 and 3, 2 of 9, and 3 of 10)

  5. 8, but it took my Tolkien nerdery to save me.

  6. @Lime- Did you get all 5 then? If so I’m very very impressed.

  7. 8 as well. I had to rely on the Watchmen question to bolster my score though. (Questions 5, 5 out of 6 in 9, 3 out of 5 for 10).

  8. Zowie. I’m not a very good geek. I don’t know most of these. Some of it is my memory problems–

    I messed up two of the three wizard names I remembered. Couldn’t remember NG’s narrator’s name tho I read that just last year. I remembered some of the phoenix’s namesakes story, and had the wrong name! I got a ‘one.’

  9. My score is 3 (would have been 2 if I had not seen The Hobbit two weeks ago on TV).

    …but Pokemon? C’mon, really?

  10. @Legatus- Problem? My quiz, my questions, my rules.

  11. 5, but I admit I had to look up Picard’s birthday

  12. Ten, but dong all the Charleton/Watchmen as separate points is kinda a gimme. Which books name the 4th and 5th Istari? I’ve never run across that before.

  13. @Bael- The Unfinished Tales (the first two names) and The Peoples Of Middle Earth (the second two).

  14. Thanks JR.

  15. Hey JR, your quiz, your rules. No problem!
