    Since this quiz is going to be much longer than the previous one, I have decided to do a Champions League style competition as a side to this. This will start at some point in November and will require no extra effort on your part. I have drawn 4 leagues (4 teams each selected by a randomiser) and will make a fixture list this weekend.

    In the league section, each player will face each other 2 times and the top 2 after 6 games will progress. 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw and 0 for a loss. Any ties will be decided by total points scored in those 6 games. If that is still tied, it will be a private head-to-head with the next week's questions.

    After this will be the knockout (2 legs). A tied score will have a private head-to-head with harder questions.

    Here are the groups.

    Group A

    1. MRE
    2. RM
    3. Quentin
    4. Si Robin
    Group B
    1. JTC77
    2. porkchop
    3. Richard
    4. Mattledud
    Group C

    2. TLC
    3. panja
    4. Adam
    Group D

    2. misslfc

    Fair play, you're correct. I wouldn't have had a clue. In London they've started giving the new tall buildings names and so people remember them better.

    Looking at the leaderboard I think you've given me max. points, but should only be 9.

    I definitely had you down for 9 points. I must have flunked my maths up though.

    It's one of those questions that you either you've known someone at school that it applied to or you didn't :)
