    Just an idea I started on another forum.

    I set the first question, and the first one to correctly answer sets the next. This idea can sometimes work, and sometimes fall dead on its arse as it requires the question setter to check back and confirm - which can be a tad frustrating when you know you have answered correctly.

    That said, lets just say if you're the first to answer the current question, and are certain your answer in the correct one, go ahead and post the next.

    OK, an easy one to kick off.

    Q1: In Back in the Red Part II, Rimmer gives Captain Hollister a blueberry muffin. From which popular chain of supermarket is the muffin from?

    I think it's Tesco, but I'm not certain.

    Plus my 2, so that's 5 in total; Horrocks, Ferguson, Wax, Kennedy, Banks.

    I'll let Bluey decide who gets the point for that... if indeed it's correct.

    None of the three you mentioned were members of the Absolutely comedy team. Billy Casper got two of them.

    Let's make it simple: the person who names the third member gets to ask the next question. I'm surprised you haven't got him already as he played one of Red Dwarf's most iconic characters.

    Ohh well, I must have got the wrong idea about the question as I though of people who were in abfab as well as red dwarf.:? so I just googled Absolutely and found it is a sketch show. :eek:ops:

    Perhaps we need to introduce a new rule that if the person whose turn it is hasn't responded within 24 hours anyone else can add a question instead?
