Congrats Williamsfan, enjoy your great prize.  :good:

I must confess to not taking part, I was expecting to have left for the holiday break before Xmas Eve and be off the net. However as it turned out I was delayed and left midday Xmas Eve. I did enjoy having a stab at the questions each day but never wrote awnsers down.  :'(   

So "Good Game, Good Game" as Brucie would say. you have done it again Wizzo.  :yahoo:

Well done Williamsfan.

I got all the answers correct if not the letters. I got my z from number 13. All the spellings I can find are Stephane Sarrazin ;)

I needed the sort order, so I asked for the first letter as my clue.  Once I knew Santa was the first word, it all fell into place.  As for the most actors to play which role, it is certainly Napoleon (over 300 on IMDB vs Sherlock with a measly 200+), although as Wiz pointed out, Sherlock has an L in the same place, so the result was the same.

Is that the same Napoleon (Bonaparte) though Scott or just a character called Napoleon?

I believe they were all Bonaparte.

Talking of substitute answers the City of Hood River official website states that licenses are issued for soliciting.  :o  :crazy: 

You can check it out if you don't believe me, :P (legal people are called attorneys in the states not Solicitors as here in England). The license also allows for soliciting from house to house. :-[  :nono: :stop:'sLicenseApplication.pdf

And the Winner is................DRRRRRRRRRRRRR (Drum Roll)

 :yahoo: Williamsfan! :yahoo:

Well done to Williamsfan and all who entered, I think this year was one of the most enjoyable yet and I have a few ideas rolling around for next year. Mwhahahaha.

Williamsfan was chosen at random by my lovely assistant, (Toby), from the following members.


(Members in no particular order, although Ian being last is deliberate  :DD)

Well done all  :good:

But enough bickering...way to go WilliamsFan!  Let me know how the game is, I might just pick one up, it looks like great fun.

Congratulations!!   :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
