As the Indigo Sporting Manager, HR consultant, and official quizmaster, I’ve formulated a little quiz full of pearls of wisdom. The only rule is that googling is NOT allowed! A free T Shirt to the first person to answer all correctly!

  • Can you name the six states of the former Soviet Union of which the titular nationalities are Muslim?
  • What is the world’s loudest mammal in terms of decibel output?
  • Why is the alarm system of the Ballantine’s Dumbarton whisky distillery in Scotland famous?
  • How many roads are there in the Square Mile?
  • Who is the wealthiest man in the world?
  • What do George Earle Buckle, Henry Wickham Steed and Robert McGowan Barrington-Ward have in common?
  • In which city did the word ‘quiz’ originate?
