Greetings again quiz warriors and human friends ...

March saw another nailbiting fight. Anxiety inducing ... I had to steady my palpitations, reach for a brown paper bag and chant calming mantras.

So how'd it go?
The Challenge
The USA fielded 15 players, snatched 7181 points = 51.3% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co fielded 12 warriors. grabbed 6825 pts = 48.7% of the crumbs.
The USA, yet again, won the March challenge!

And now to the second battle, without which there could be no war.

The Survivor
The USA fielded 9 super-heroes (and heroines), won 2056 pts = 51.1%
The UK & Co sent in 12 troopers, bagged 1967 pts = 48.9%
The USA won the March Survivor quiz.

Wow! Congratulations my American buddies for winning both battles! And my unstinting admiration to both jules44, Top UK General ... and Suep, Top USA General for such a tremendously close and entertaining fight! Only 2 points between them .. and though jules snatched victory by the skin of her teeth ... the better, cleverer and faster army won.
Raise your glasses my friends and fellow fighters to the USA.
The USA won the March War for world domination.

Final Result
USA = 51.2%
UK & Co = 48.8%

*Pengy turns away and dabs eyes with a tissue* ... and now commiserations to the UK & Co team. Gird your loins, get in training, get recruiting .. for the USA are getting a stranglehold and never ever will the fantastic UK be beaten into submission!

And one more thing ...  where is Martin Cube? Provider of nibbles and Captain of the UK Smorgasbord? Whew, thank goodness Quiz Beagle has stepped into the void to offer a daily dose of performance enhancing treats to the keep the UK team well fuelled. Today's nibbles are Polish sausage from Qmel ... hee, hee, don't tell Mr Tusk of the EU that we worthy fighters are eating that! And Laver Bread from Quiz Beagle ... ?? .. which I confess I had to google. Hmm ... sounds right up my street. Very tasty.

So my wonderful troopers! Battle commences once again!
Good Luck to both armies.

It's that time again ...already!

After an anxiety inducing close nail-biting fight to the finish in January which saw a USA victory we got to do it all over again. Isn't that great!
Two fabulous armies one again squared up ... shrugged into their combat jackets and waged war.

The Challenge
The USA fielded 15 players, grabbed 6258 points = 53.2%
The UK & Co sent in 12 warriors, snatched 5516 pts = 46.8%
The USA won the February Challenge by a hairsbreadth, by the width of a bayonet ... well, actually I'm hamming it up. It was a bigger margin than last month and a convincing win.

Everything could .. and undoubtedly will .. hinge on the next battle. The toughest one .. where the questions get tougher and only the bravest dare enter in the fray.

The Survivor
The USA fielded 9 survivors, won 1971 pts = 48.5%
The UK & Co fielded 13 troopers, won 2092 pts = 49.15%
The UK & Co won the Survivor quiz ... by a slighter bigger margin than last month but boy was it still close!

Two battles make one War.
The February War was once again won by the USA!
USA = 50.85%
UK & Co = 49.15%
Congratulations my American buddies. That's now a hat trick! This 10th Tour of Duty is proving to be the most closely fought yet. All great fun.
But my UK friends .. this penguin is getting afraid. What are you going to do to halt the tide of American conquest? They're good. They're dangerous. And they keeping winning!

Results from HQ January 2017

Greetings humans!

This is truly nail biting stuff .....
In October the US won, breaking the long run of UK victories .. in November the UK & Co won .. December, once again saw the US fighting back and challenging the holders of world domination. Never has the fighting been so close.

So who grabbed victory in January?

The Challenge
The USA fielded 15 worthy warriors, who grabbed 7752 points = 51.2% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co sent in 11 crack troopers, who snatched 7386 pts = 48.8% of the spoils.
That was close! A measly 2.4% margin! Less than a mere 400 points but glory went to the USA on the Challenge battlefield.

But if you think that was close ... the Survivor had me gnawing my flippers with dreadful apprehension.
One army won by  .... 1 point.
Yes! Only 1 point.
The USA fielded 9 dynamic patriots ... who won 2284 pts = 49.99%
The UK & Co fielded 12 invincible quizzers .. who won 2285 pts = 50.01%

I am humbled. I am stunned with admiration ... you're a damn clever bunch and the fighting couldn't get closer than that. Humans .. your countries are privileged to have such fearsome patriotic warriors to uphold their honour. This pengy salutes you all... and besides, it's very exciting.
A bit OTT?

Okay ..
The US won the Challenge ... the UK & Co won the Survivor ...
The January War. ( two battles = 1 war)
The USA won the January War with 50.6%
The UK & Co valiantly fought, and lost, with 49.4%

All leave is cancelled!
My UK & Co friends ... enlist your veterans ... recruit new heroes and heroines... send out the cry from the white cliffs of Dover to the shores of Land's End and every small pub in any hamlet or any local chippy on the way. The USA is offering no quarter .. after years in the wilderness of defeat they are back! They have won magnificently for the last three out of four monthly wars and soon they will believe they are unconquerable... and we can't have that.

Shrug into your flak jackets once again and get and fight for your country!

Results from HQ December 2016

And a Happy New Year to all my human friends & worthy combatants!

I hope you had a wonderful time, enjoyed your celebrations and are still fit for battle.
So how did the final war of 2016 go?
My astute friends, yes, that's you! Will remember that the UK & Co's stranglehold of unbeatable conquest was broken in October 2016 when my American buddies daringly snatched victory after years of  been hammered into the ground.
And that in November .. the UK took revenge! Mess with the UK at your own peril , that's what I always say.
But in December .......
Ah, well the fighting was ferocious ... read on ....

The Challenge
The USA fielded 15 crack troopers, won 7568 points = 52.4% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co sent in 12 woadwearers, won 6861 pts = 47.6% of the dead and spent Christmas crackers.
Wow! Two equally matched armies, both played well but ...
The USA won the December Challenge battle by a margin of 4.8%

But could they carry this supremacy onto the muddy trenches of the Survivor battlefield?
The Survivor
The USA fielded heroes and heroines, bagged 2258 pts = 48.7%
The UK & Co fielded 12 fantastic warriors, bagged 2381 pts = 51.3%
The UK came surging back, pelting mince pies and tree baubles at the enemy  ... well, this is the Survivor where the UK are famed for been nearly always unbeatable.
The UK & Co won the December 2016 Survivor by 2.6%

One win each! Oh, this will be close!
Wait whilst I excitedly, and not without a little terrible anticipation rattle my hi-tech abacus.
Final result over both battles
The USA = 50.5%
The UK & Co = 49.5%

USA you've done it again!
The USA won the December 2016 war by a close, very close margin of 1%.

This is as close as it gets .. well, almost as close. Back in May 2009 we did actually get a draw with both armies facing off across the great watery divide in a stalemate.

Well done America!
Never again can the UK & Co rest easy in their beds at night ... never again can they be complacent and assume unchallenged dominance of the globe for the Bald Eagle is angry, is vengeful and is swooping back to rule the world.

It's amazing how a drop of shandy can make me so loquacious isn't it?
Remember, I do not condone war for I'm a pacifist .. now, everyone shrug into your flak jackets, I don't care if they're snug after all your festive over eating and indulgences .... get out there ready to fight in the trenches once again for your country needs you! Yes! You!

All leave is now cancelled.
For this is War.
