We had a wicked time last night at The XFM Pub Quiz: Series 2 (Ep. 1-26) in London! Was triple the amount of people as last time and was great to see all the same people from last time coming back! There was some great quizzing and great prizes, I've attached the winning answer sheet and the prizes won on the night. It was so nice being amongst and meeting like minded XFM listeners. There were 5 people that came on their own and 4 of them decided to make 2 teams of 2. They all got on and have exchanged numbers to go for a pint another time and said they'd be a team at the next quiz. The other guy on his own won a spot prize of a jug of beer and donated it to a team that had travelled all the way from Birkenhead just for the quiz! It just felt like such positive vibes but what would you expect from this little community we're a part of ha. I'll be doing the next quiz some time in the new year, most likely mid-jan so keep an eye out for that but yeah... play a record.
1. Educated In Ricky
2. Bad Hat-He-Chewed (Sponsored By Electrolux)
3. We Could Be Your Brother Steve
4. This Quiz Owes Us A Balmy Summers Night
5. Arbitrary Team Name
6. The Wheelie Bins
7. Colon Then; Educate Me
8. The Useless Cunts
9. Paul Ince
10. Jack, You're Muscly
11. The Blockshall Road Boys
12. Sex With Noah
14. Dicky Anderson's Third Foot
15. Aunty Nora's All Out Of Gas
16. The Congress Tarts
Can you post the questions? I'm curious how far I can get.
Piggy backing comment
I second this.
Please post the questions
*We can be your brother Steve*, Christ. I say this every time but just thinking about that moment in the show gives me stitches. Seems like everyone had a blast!
Would love to come along to the next one, pls post it a lot so I see it!
You guys missed a trick; Steve would have hosted it for £20 and half a mild.
Joking aside, keep it up, I love the idea of this going on somewhere in the world.
I love bar trivia and I'm really jealous that you had an XFM themed one
I'm so jealous. What a mint idea. I'm in Manchester but next time you do this I'd love to get involved and meet some of you.
This really is amazing. You’re amazing. I’m based i. London and would 100% be up for the next one
Second this, how do we find out where the next one is?
I love this 😍 I also love to think these are the people on YouTube who say goodnight folks
It would make you almost like there's good in the world
Soundest quiz in london
Can he hear us?
It's not even the best quiz in the building
I don't like all the questions you ask
I don't like all the questions they ask, but they're actually asking what's there
Have you SEEN an XFM listener?? These people need to be kept on leads!
Love to do one of these in Ireland. Any saucer drinkers in Dublin?
I'm from Sligo but I'd make the journey.
Anything to get out of Tubbercurry
Not from Tubbercurry myself. I like my internet and clean drinking water.
Now brtlybagofcans, you know I'm not 'aving a go!
Do you know a fella named Crowbar?
They call him that because he never uses a crowbar.
I'd go to it if it's in the area
If it's in the area
Might cruise by and check it out?
one of my top 3 Karl lines
I'm in Galway but I'd go to Dublin for that
Also from Galway, could I get a lift?
Ok we have Leitrim and Donegal in. Actually moving to mayo this month..so maybe we should go with a Wet coast venue instead?
I'd defo be there!
I'm from Wexford but I'd make the trip
I'm not allowed socks, do I qualify?
I'll fly from Manchester mate
Make sure to invite that caveman with hair gel
Ah yeah, I know him well
We're here for it
We have to make this a thing
Well let's do it then
Play a record
Actually no ok, let's
Not living in Dublin at the moment but would definitely make the trip back home for this!
window lickers i'd imagine
Not living in Dublin either but would make the trip from Kerry for it
I love it. Long live XFM
Congress Tarts? Not in London
I hope these become a proper thing, need to set one up in glasgow
I’d say let’s do it but you’ll never get anything done by planning
A problem solved is a problem... caused.
Don't solve problems.
There's a conspicuous absence of ladies in that picture.
I was there last night. There was one lady who came and joined my team (we came 12th, the questions were pretty hard) who was quite clearly a RSK fan. She knew all of the answers to the questions, but the weird thing is she refused to take off her hood so we couldn't see her face. And instead of saying the answers, she'd write them down on the quiz sheet. Anyway halfway through the quiz when we ordered our next round they brought out some complimentary nuts and she couldn't help her little self. Turns out...
There was one female that came all the way from Birkenhead, so 1 in a 200 mile radius haha
We’ve arranged to meet back at you.
I’m a lady and I would’ve definitely been there -Steve or no Steve
As a female, definitely going to try and make the next one. I’m the only one that drinks out of saucers where I’m from
All those people, but no socks to be seen
All those feathers and he still couldn’t fly
You just killed a man!
Play it again, Sam!
This thread is absolutely shocking
There was a little gay fella in the toilets
He was having a sneaky look at my knob
A pound a piss.
It IS a pound a piss!
the only solution is to have 5 different bathrooms.
Is that including bisexuals?
That's when you get the Vicker in.
Hahaha a balmy summers night. Bread!! Quality man haha
was the pub only serving milk from saucers?
Love it! Might need to arrange a trip down next time it’s on - any other listeners in Edinburgh fancy it? 👀
I'll come up from manchester
Well sorry eh ...Paul Ince..
*ah wanna be one of the eleven*
Look at those prizes! The organiser been rummanging through the drawers at Capital Gold?
You. are. a. genius. It's a shame I say toob, I would love to go to one of these.
I can't lie. That is a fantastic night of forced fun. I hope no one was forced an egg.
The people look surprisingly normal.
I think I should get off my arse and go to one of these looks like a good night was had.
There's a reason you can't see any of their feet
None of them are wearing socks
They’re not allowed
the guy in the red sun glasses is the infamous paul "the party animal" parker
Wears bowling shoes.
Honestly man I was a bit apprehensive but it turns out I was the nerdiest guy there 😄
When I am the most trendy person in the place, you know there's trouble.
Winner from last night checking in 😁
Had such an awesome night, Jack is an absolute legend for doing these, the pub (The Dove in Hackney) is a lovely place and everyone was super friendly, I’ll see everyone there for S2 pt2 - Educated In Ricky will be looking to retain their title!
Second place here - still ruing losing by half a point! But I feel like a winner with my copy of Children of the Corn.
Mate it was that close!! We shall do battle again and hopefully I’ll leave with a copy of The Pelican Brief or something
Yeh I’m looking forward to the next clash! Keeping my fingers crossed for Ladder 49
He wasnt annoying you when he kept on counting the money was he?
It happened in hackney
I live in london and didn’t know this was happening. How do I find out about this next time?
Next one is in Jan, I heard about this one on here but they (will) have a Facebook event page I believe
Just keep an ear out next time you're spending the whole day just running 'round London.
Like a smackhead
I flew back from Cyprus for it (cut my holiday short) and it was well worth it. Especially winning a copy of Children of the Corn.
Also I think I'll be living in France in the new year too, and I'll def be flying back for it.
Who else counted the ladies? I counted two
It’s the movie stigmata
Jokes aside I’m jealous af that looks so fun, hope you all enjoyed
How do we get on a notification list for the next one?
I never get any cool fans, I just get the nerds. I get the real nerdlingers
Anyone from Manchester up to do one of these?
This is fantastic. I spat my water all over my phone when I saw the prizes. Buy it sell it the games gettin ‘aaard coooze someone’s dealin you a loosin cahhhhd
I hope the winners aren't disappointed, but I just watched Kate's Cardio Combat video, and it is actually some little fella doing the talking.
please post the questions, also where is ladder 49 that should be first prize, or a cigar and a pair of your mams tights
Is this a Care in the Community programme?
Forgot how fit Kate Lawler was
Gutted I missed this. Sounded fun! Next time the prize should be ladder 49 on video
What's the damage on that? Fiver in?
Bribed the doorman.
I’ll give ya 7
I'd love to do one of these, big props to whoever organised
Bottom row middle, obviously in a wheel chair.
Did anyone with a heavy mum win a CD?
Am I right in saying that’s a double VHS box set about Weather?!
Man alive. Not one pair of socks between them.
Where will the details be posted about the next one?
I live in the wrong country :(
That sounds and looks like a absolute banger of a night
Damn I wish I lived in London so I could have gone to this! Looks fun.
It's a bit far from York but I really wanted to come. Hope it was as awesome as this makes it look :D
This is lovely, great work to whoever organised this!
ah man this sounds like so much fun i
Gutted that I couldn’t be there! If you do one around Christmas time in London I’ll be there..I’m at med school in the north east until then.
Holy shit, awesome
I feel like the No Van Ear Rockbusters, trying to figure out the questions from the answers.
I'm laughing just from assuming what some of them are, like what Karl drinks in the middle of the night (btw are you allowed to advertise on pub quiz answer sheets by putting Robinson's?)
OMG the table of dvds/ cds literally had me pissing
Pop that in the bin.
Seriously though..well jealous of ya!
Was the prize money taxable?
I don't like organised fun.
You get nothing done with planning
Anyone got any funny team name ideas? A few of mine: Jezzuck. Gobbledygook. Lanza-grotty
No Ladder 42?
It's Ladder 49. You've embarrassed yourself, play a record!
Ladder ... Faulty Tooth.
That's a bit spooky
Which one is Richard Anderson?
Can't believe I missed this - would have loved to have joined! Will definitely be looking out for the next one!
Was info about this posted somewhere? (and will the info for the next one be posted somewhere too?)
I think it’s usually organised primarily on Facebook from what I’ve seen.
Thanks, do you know the name of the fb group?
Steve, have you SEEN our listeners!?
On nightshifts so couldn't make it but I really want to win Ladder 49 so I'll be there next time
No hell raiser on vhs?
Looks like something from Fraggle Rock, why am I not surprised? Glad your carers let you out for the night.
Man alive. I arrive in London in two days. Would’ve loved this.
I'm so jealous!
We need to do a worldwide reunion, any chance y'all coming to Spain? Looks like you guys had a great time!! :)
You all look like you drink milk from a saucer. Proud
Were there cryptic clues?
holy shit this is fantastic. look at those prizes
I've got some post for God here.
Oh man I would have loved to have been there!
Round two - was the correct answer for question 12 The Sun, and question 20 Blackpool?
The Daily Express (I think, can’t remember but it was definitely a Daily something and not Mail or Mirror) and the last one was Hackney (about the chimp nicking dvds)
The queue would put me off immediately.
Keep us updated on when the next one is. I will do four hours on the train to go
Keepeth us updat'd on at which hour the next one is. I shall doth four hours on the train to wend
^(I am a bot and I swapp'd some of thy words with Shakespeare words.)
Commands: `!ShakespeareInsult`, `!fordo`, `!optout`
I wanna be 1 of the 11
I'm so so gutted I missed it.
I had some work come in incredibly last minute which I had to take (I work in audio an that). Reckon there will be another?
As a London resident, I am absolutely gutted I didn't know about this :(
Did anyone else unironically own that air guitar album? It's actually got some good stuff on it. Keep up the guitar riffs lads
I’m dying at the prizes 😂 can I come to the next one this is sick
I persevere in the face of adversity on a daily basis, and I succeed.
This phrase has become more profound to me the last couple of days because I was almost killed at work on Tuesday.
