December competition 2017
« on: December 22, 2017, 12:46:57 AM »
Welcome to our annual competition once again :)
I can't believe a whole year has passed since last time....

Ten coins as usual - can you guess what they are?

For hints see the previous years threads
2016 thread
 2015 thread
 2014 thread
 2013 thread
 2012 thread
 2011 thread
 2010 thread
 2009 thread



Simply PM me your answers and I will post the amount you have correct, send as many PM's with answers as you like.  To win if you have 10 correct answers we will hold a draw, if no one has 10 then the 1st prize goes to whoever has most.

Last entry is 30th December 2017, after which I will post the prize (s) to the winner (s).
Prizes will be revealed in a short while.

Please do not post answers in this thread.
Comments welcome!

I'll offer a modest extra prize. No time for a specification, so take your chances!

Thanks for taking the time of preparing the quiz again and being generous offering the prizes. It became for me quite a classic moment on Christmas holidays.
For sure I'll give it a try.

I was out of town the last 3 days and a very long weekend before.
I had maybe Wed and Thur I could have worked on it but didn't really have time.
I am very sorry I didn't get to participate this year but I had a good time doing what I was doing :-)

There is always next year Dale :)

Anyways results as follows -
The magic numbers from magic Malj1 are this year 52647183
Which means number 5 won...

But who is number 5?

Well, Chrisild allocated everyone a number as follows -
8 - Velind
3 - Spabreda
1 - Quaziright
2 - Bart
7 - Afrasi
6 - Fosseway
4 - Izotz
5 - Mrbadexample

which means first place is Mrbadexample,
second is Bart
and third is Fosseway
as always I will find a small something for everyone who entered

congratulations to everyone who entered and I wish all a very happy new year :)
