Only Connect is one of the hardest TV Quiz shows on British TV. A Quiz show in which connections must be made between apparently unconnected things, where patience and lateral thinking are as vital as knowledge.

Please sign up! I will take two teams of three people to start with. Either join as a team, OR join on your own and you will end up on a team, where I will give you a private topic to discuss your answers before giving them.

Team 1:
-Haschel Cedricson
-Menalque
-Akarin

Team 2:
-Something_Smart
-lilith2013
-the worst

Round 1 - Connections
The team who goes first (Team 1 in this case) will be shown four clues - each one will be revealed, and if you work out the correct connection, you get the amount of points based on the number of clues you have had - one clue (5) two clues (3) three clues (2) or all four clues (1).

You will see the first clue, then you can either guess or ask for the next clue.

If the team answers incorrectly, then it will be thrown over to the other team.

Up first - Team 1. Pick a hieroglyph

/in/ego
Not mafia has impressively cheated on his very first clue.
Also, what is Not_Mafia doing? This is some of the worst play I’ve ever seen.
I can't remember the last N_M post that wasn't bland, unimaginative and lame. Some shitposters are at least somewhat funny. You are the epitomy of the type of poster that nobody would miss if you were to suddenly disappear. You never add anything of value.

The artists all start with the word "Doctor".

idk how the other team would feel about this, but could we maybe push deadlines to like 36 hrs or something when issued, to allow for time differences between the team? 24hrs can mean that we only get to ask a question to one another but not to actually see the response before the deadline is up
