DS London turned 10 on the 15th of March, that’s right we’ve been going for 10 years now! And we weren’t going to let this anniversary pass without celebrating it in some way. 

So, being the generous bunch that we are, we decided to host a Charity Quiz, with all proceeds going to the wonderful charity, ’Special Effect’! http://www.specialeffect.org.uk

The quiz consisted of 5 rounds, 10 questions a round, and a picture round. Seven teams battled it out but only one could be victorious!!

 

Picture Round - Emoji Games

The picture round consisted of 20 questions, unlike the other rounds. Each question had emojis and the players had to guess which game the emojis were representing. Most were pretty straightforward, but a few games were a little more obscure and trickier to work out.

 

Round 1 - Capcom Round

In honour of Capcom providing the prizes for the quiz, we had 10 questions dedicated to all things Capcom. From Monster Hunter and Phoenix Wright to Viewtiful Joe and Street Fighter, all bases were covered!!

Round 2 - 10 Years

As we MAY have mentioned, DS London has been going for 10 years now! This round consisted of 10 questions, where each answer was a year from 2006 to 2015. Each year can only be the answer once! So if you got one question wrong, another would also be incorrect! 

 

Round 3 - Terry's Toons

Our good old mascot, Terry the Tetrimino, has fallen on some hard times recently. So he's moved into acting! We all watched in awe as Terry starred in some hit video game cartoons. The question was, which cartoon was it? 

Round 4 - JJ's Music Round

Better known as 'JJ's Really Really Really Hard AND SADISTIC Music Round'. For this round our Admin JJ had chiptuned video game music and everyone had to guess which video games series the music was from. This round had everyone scratching their heads. I think it's safe to say that everyone has unfriended JJ. 

Why did you have to make your round so difficult, JJ? WHY?!

Round 5 - Nintendo Round

Of course, we are DS London after all! And we couldn't have a quiz without a round dedicated to the Big N! This round consisted of general trivia from Nintendo's history like naming launch titles of the N64 and the second meaning of the DS. This round really separated the Nintendo fans from the Nintendo masters!

 

The final scores! 

Out of a possible 70 to get, these were the final scores.

It was a close one! But, congratulations to Team 'Viewtiful One-oh-Four'! Congratulations to Angelo, Emmy, Ian and Vaneet on their victory! They managed to narrowly beat Team 'We need a team name', the former reigning champions! Eoin put his Special Cup, the prize from last time, on the line! So we got this fantastic photo of the passing of the cup, and our new champions holding the cup up high!
