Spoiler: Possible Answers
As we conclude round 1, we see our first shared answer of El Salvador from skitter30 and Oso. Meanwhile, xtoxm hits the post with Mexico, whilst some geographers consider a portion of southern Mexico to be part of Central America, Mexico as a nation is not considered as part of Central America.

Only Kublai Khan manages to make it through round 1 unscathed, but his lead could quickly evaporate as lots more points are up for grabs in round 2, where unique knowledge can net you a lot of points.

Just Kublai Khan and Oso manage to answer this question correctly and get 4 points each, taking Oso from joint last to 2nd and putting Kublai Khan 6 points clear of anyone else.

Born Stevland Hardaway-Judkins, Wonder was given the nickname Lil' Stevie Wonder by a Motown music producer at the age of 11, he has since gone on to be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, be named a United Nations Peace Envoy and was ranked sixth on Billboard's all-time top-100 artists.

Just Xtoxm misses the mark this go-around, giving all of his opponents 2 points, everything is still up for grabs though.

The American flag has 50 stars, representing the fifty states and 13 stripes, representing the 13 original colonies that broke away from Great Britain, including Virginia which contains the first permanent British settlement of Jamestown.

A clean sweep for our players as everyone answers correctly.

Everyone gains a point in another clean sweep.

The chances of getting a flush or higher in 7-card poker is a mere 5.82%, which still dwarves the 0.0032% chance to get a royal flush, the best possible hand.

Our first universal stumper sees no change in the scores.

"Lady Chatterley's Lover" refers to her gamekeeper; Oliver Mellors, with whom she has an affair after her husband is injured during the war. Lady Chatterley's Lover was the subject of a landmark obscenity trial in the U.K., the trial's not guilty verdict paved the way for much more freedom in UK publishing and other media.

We have our first solo correct answer, which see Oso pick up 5 points and puts him just one point behind Kublai Khan going into the last question of round 2.

Prokofiev is one of the 20th centuries most influential composers, his ballets and operas remain popular around the world and his compositions have been used in shows such as The Apprentice UK, which uses Dance of the Knights as its theme.

No one managed to pick up points on this tricky final question. Everyone did however manage to submit answers from the top seven, man was 7th, thing was 6th, day was 5th and person was 2nd but no one said "time" which was number 1.

Kublai leads by just one point going into the final round, only Oso is hot on his tail but anyone can win in round 3.

That makes Kublai Khan our champion, make sure to congratulate him.

Will send out PMs to KK and the next 4 players in the queue making sure they still want to play, the others players in this game can let me know if they want to be added back to the end of the queue. Let me know if you enjoyed the game and how you think it could be improved
