Some questions felt far too easy - who won the 2008 presidential election in the US? What's the medical term for memory loss? Other questions got the better of us - what colour is the shade aurelion? Which 5th Century AD conquestor was named the 'Scourge of God'?

As we listened to the results being read out, we realised we must have won, although it emerged that we were tied with another three teams. Ben and Martin had vastly different calculations of Elon Musk's net worth, so we went with a number somewhere in the middle. If we'd gone with Ben's calculation we would have won the tie break and a free round of drinks. But we lost out to a group of 20 somethings with enviable haircuts. If only our 6th team member had remembered there was a quiz on, we might have been in a very different position!
