The quiz turned out to be only half C&H as the QM had difficulty finding enough questions. The questions were not C&H trivia but the many many pop-culture/philosophical references Watterson uses in the comic. There were quite a few philosophy related questions earlier on but with the QM's 'usual shtick' as he likes to call it, the cryptic clues were helpful in confirming guesses.
The other 20 questions were good old general quiz type. The quality of the questions was good and they were well framed.
There were numerous typos in the questions and one or two errors (Kunal had a field day pointing them out). The projector refused to be turned on (no pun here) and we had to shift to another room ten questions through the quiz which was slightly tedious. An enjoyable quiz that would have been more so with 'tech support' and a little more attention to detail.
