There was a low turnout for the quiz so all 10 teams were merged into 5 teams for the finals. Probably due to a late start and paucity of time and also the small number of teams, the QM chose to have only 17 questions for the prelims. This left scope for a lot more consumption of questions per-head in the finals.

Personally, I liked the quiz - there were a good mix of topics with no biases to any one, no memorable peters or obvious sitters. Team E led from the start with Team D close behind. Perhaps the delays in getting the venue stretched the duration leading to members from Team D leaving in between. But young Omkar held the fort and maintained their position. A fun time was had by all.

Please leave your reviews in the comments.

quiz was great fun. It being all visuals, prevented 'young' Omkar from getting bored.

Actually our team (Team D) was leading with 110 points halfway through till Kunal and I left. Kudos to Omkar for keeping the score ticking.
