(apologies on this late report publication - so late that most of my mental notes on the quiz have been erased; please add to this account, including the rest of the teams)

We had a Lit quiz after a long time, and it made a welcome change from other themes. The prelims were quite nice - some questions were quite good. The finals were reasonably good, though I personally felt the first half of the quiz was a little tough and sometimes obscure. The second half was more accessible. I'm not a big fan of the minimalist posters theme - these visuals can be a little subjective in interpretation.

Our team made a stirring comeback in the second half, but only to miss out on top spot by 5 points.

Please leave your opinions in the comments section.
