congrats again

just an observation on the points distribution, NM - the first round weighting feels really low and almost insignificant compared to later rounds

Spoiler: Possible Answers
All Correct Answers

Great Pyramid of Giza
Hanging Gardens of Babylon
Temple of Artemis at Ephesus
Statue of Zeus at Olympia
Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
Colossus of Rhodes
Lighthouse of Alexandria

The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus was built to honour Mausolous, due to its grandeur the term mausoleum now refers to any grand tomb.

Again we open with a shared answer, following the lighthouse isn't always safe.

All Correct Answers

Bulgarian lev
British pound sterling

Swiss franc

After the exchange rate between Euros and legacy currencies were fixed, both the most and least valuable currencies were named Lira, the Maltese and Italian respectively.

Kublai Khan answers with Ruble, which is Russia's currency, unfortunately, Russia is not an EU member state. mutantdevle and mallowgeno pull ahead at this early stage of the game.

The 3D Mario Platformers are amongst the most influential and well received of all time, with Galaxy, Odyssey and Galaxy 2 sitting at 1, 3 and 4 respectively on review aggregator Game Rankings all-time top games.

Just mallowgeno remains on track for a perfect track as Kublai answers with Super Mario Maker, which, alas is a 2D game.

I’m a wizard, apparently:

In post 20, Jingle wrote:Bet one guess of Edinburgh and 2 glasgows from the players, btw.

Inverness and Aberdeen seem like they're decent enough options for a guess from them as well though, and I don't know enough about anyone playing in this round to try and predict specific results.
