But just think Scott, how boring it would be if it was all straightforward with no twists and turns.

Listening? Wizzo? Nah I don't think its possible. He strives to see us suffer, he plans to torments us in the name of Advent, his eyes glows thinking how much of pain he could in instill, while sitting in his dungeon. If he had listened do you think he could possibly lure is to cause such pain??

[Above statement only applies from December 01 to December 25, rest of the year, Wizzo is the guy you would love to meet, he would make you laugh with his wits, would take away your suffering in thousands of ways, and his warmth will just simply blow you away, he will make you feel you are lucky to meet him]

BD wins the Advent competition for guessing the above sentence correctly!  :yahoo:

Ha! Not really BD. Get back to biting your nails waiting for the next question.  :DD

Hey is it just me or is this year's Advent comp becoming just a little bit - well repetitive. :confused: 

What's our sly old Warlock up to?  :DntKnw:  He pretends to be all sweetness and light with helpful clues,  ::) oh and a repeat of the day before - but we know him better now don't we.  ;)

Some of you may have fallen by the wayside and some of you have seen it through to the end. It's been a long (but no too hard) month of questions, so, even if you haven't got all the letters then its still worth having a stab at the answer.

Here is the solution clue as always and as it's Christmas I have put in the missing letter from day 16 (Bernie's puzzle). Good luck everyone.

Remember to PM me with your answers anytime on the 24th and you can have as many guesses as you like.

The answer to the 2013 Advent competition.

Ho Ho Ho its Advent time again

In an unprecedented turn of events there were NO correct answers this year. The closest to the correct answer was submitted by Cos and I hereby declare him the winner!  :yahoo: I'm sure you will join me in congratulating him on his sterling efforts.

Well done to everyone who played along. The Day 21 questions were tough and the test was taken over 100 times in total. I will leave this quiz on show for the next few days and have set it to show the answers as you answer the questions.

The answer to all the other questions are below:

Day 1. In which country was Ferrari's 500th race? First letter of country. = Hungary (H)                                                      
Day 2. In which country did Anthony Davidson make his F1 debut? First letter of country = Hungary (H)                                                         
Day 3. Anagram Salad Tornado Mop This driver scored one point in 2013 but in which country? = Hungary (H)                                                      
Day 4. Name the Oxford school team from Cowley that reached the National Finals of the 'Formula 1 in Schools' competition. 3 words, first letter of first word. = Hippos Strike Back (H changed to T later)                                                          
Day 5 . Word Search There are 6 drivers from the 2013 line up. Find all 6 then you need the one who finished the season with the least amount of points. First letter of surname. = Sutil (S)                                                         
Day 6. The 2010 F1 world championship was a closely fought battle but how many times did the lead of the championship change in the season? = Nine (N)                                             
Day 7. The semi-automatic gearbox revolutionised F1 but who was the first driver to win a Grand Prix using one? Nigel Mansell (M)                                                      
Day 8. Jigsaw. Solve the jigsaw and todays letter will be revealed. = G                                                         
Day 9. How many drivers won a Grand Prix in the 2003 season? = Eight (E)                                                         
Day 10. 10 F1 questions. Letter = O                                                         
Day 11. Today's letter is Y Not really it was hiding and was T                                                         
Day 12. Maths Day: 2x3-5+0=1 (A)                                                         
Day 13. Word Search. 6 Teams to find. Who scored the most points in 2013. Last letter of their name Force India = (A)                                                         
Day 14. Letter = V                                                         
Day 15. Wizaround! = I                                                         
Day 16. Jigsaw Wizzle Bernie says  No Letter!                                                         
Day 17. Maths. (22+6+2)/5+3=9. Letter = I                                                         
Day 18. Name the driver. Ralf Schumacher (Age 50 on 30 June 2025) Letter = O                                                         
Day 19. Anagram. Alphanumerical Scratch Tree = Charles Pic Caterham Renault = I                                                         
Day 20. Name the driver from the picture. Nigel Mansel = N                                                         
Day 21. QWIZ- Answer the questions and get 4 letters T,E,D & O
Final letter A given with the clue to the phrase.
"No Matter how little money and how few possessions, you own, having a dog makes you rich."
