Vertigo-ing, Going, Gone!

Michael B

Giving (or not giving) clues can be the bane of the Quizmaster's existence. Too easy and a team may gain an unfair advantage, too cryptic and a team can be left feeling even more baffled than they were in the first place. I like to give the occasional, discretionary prod in the right direction, but when a team asks, "Can I have a clue? Is THIS the right answer?" (pointing sheepishly at their quiz sheet) I can be guaranteed to lose my normally generous streak. This evening, 'Halal, Is It Meat You're Looking For?' were 99% sure that Q.24 was the iconic 'Vertigo' movie poster, but that 1% of doubt, coupled with my stoney pokerface led them to change their answer and duly lose the point. Luckily, their Alfred Hitchcock-up didn't cost them victory, as they claimed the £40 bar tab with an impressive 41 points. 'Mums On The Run' will be 'Mums With Sore Heads' tomorrow morning, as they won the runners-up bottle of wine AND a pitcher of beer in the jackpot round. Good luck, ladies ...
