We see a clean sweep of points here, with all the Benelux nations being picked and two countries infamously invaded by the Nazis in WWII.

Germany re-unified in 1990, mainly thanks to the efforts of David Hasselhoff whose inspirational record "Looking for Freedom" was the sole catalyst for the tearing down of the Berlin wall.

Peter Davison
Colin Baker

Christopher Eccleston
David Tennant
Matt Smith
Peter Capaldi
Jodie Whittaker

Despite the possibility that Jodie Whittaker is, in fact, my mother existing, McMenno misses whilst KK and Vashta collide. We see a lot more mind melding this game, total points gained in round 1 this game is 36 compared to 51 in game 1. We also see ips going into round 2 with a hefty 6 point advantage compared to the relatively even spread last game.

Despite much discussion of Jodie Whittaker being the first woman to play The Doctor, the character has actually been portrayed by Joanna Lumley in a Red Nose Day version of the programme and by Arabella Weir in a non-canon audio play.

A bad question for Xalxe as he concedes 2 points to each of his competitors.

The Savannah cat is a cross breed between a serval and domestic cat and is known for the dog like qualities, they can be taught to fetch and walk on a leash and are notably loyal to their masters.

Two of our contestants, including reigning champion Kublai Khan, activated my trap card and are now joint last as a result.

The Gregorian calendar is rooted in the Julian calendar, which was created when the number 0 as we know it was not fully realised. There is no Roman numeral for zero and although the Babylonians did utilise the concept of nothingness, it is not as developed as the concept of 0 we use today.

IPS again concedes 2 points to all of his fellow contestants.

Charles Ponzi was originally running a legitimate arbitrage investment scheme with International Reply Coupons before realising he could make more money by using new investors money. Although the Ponzi scheme is named for him, Ponzi Schemes appeared in Charles Dickens novels years earlier.

I get to keep all the points as we see our first universal stumper. Also, Jodie Whitaker being my mum is now canon.

A popular houseplant, the bird of paradise flower is named for it's resemblance to... the bird of paradise... the bird. The genus strelitzia takes its name from the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, best known as the birthplace of Queen Charlotte.
