Discworld question on pointless

Postby unseenu » Wed Jul 20, 2011 5:07 pm

I've just been watching the quiz show "pointless" on bbc1 and the final question was to name a discworld novel.It was quite funny the way the guy with the computer explained to them in a very serious manner "we are not included spin off novels such as nanny ogg's cookbook and where's my cow"

Neither of the two guys had read terry and in the end the answers they gave were "the colour of magic" "men at arms" and one that doesn't exist "the court jester"

they didn't name a pointless one,9 people in the survey said TCOM and 2 people knew Men at Arms.Was anyone here included in this survey?

Pointless answers were as follows: The last continent, The last hero ,Monstrous regiment jingo,the amazing maurice and his educated rodents and masquerade

Conclusion:A book distorts time and space more than blank papers

The show ask 100 people a question. The contestants then have to guess the lowest scoring correct answer those 100 people would say. So, you want to score '0' to do well.

Basically the opposite of Family Fortunes.

You try to give a correct answer the fewest number of people in the survey could name.
