It's the Son of the Return of the Revenge of the

UKFF Christmas Computer Game Quiz

part II, the sequel


Whippersnappers may not remember but Christmas never used to start round here until the annual quiz had been published. After a self-imposed hiatus to allow cries of banditry and buggery to calm down, the quiz returns in all it's fiendish glory. Enjoy!


If you want to have a go and post your answers, feel free. But be a chap and SPOILER or SPOILER2 the answers to avoid angry glances in your direction. I'll post the answers at t'other end of the week or thereabouts.

1b. Attached Lefty One

1d. Bata Cedes Lightproof Shrunk Twirls


1e. Nonce Knew Mum Onyx

3. Overheard on Xbox Live by Astro Hollywood

Here are some snippets from homophobic 'Merkin teens overheard on Xbox Live, assuming every game in history is playable over XBLA. What game were they playing?


3a. "Come at me with your uppercuts, come on- oh you've punched my fucking head off. Retard."


3b. "Will somebody give me a friggin' L-shape?"

4b. mawreddog is dinas auto lladrad

6. Only Connect round 1: What's the Connection?

What's this? Geek-bothering strumpet Victoria Coren-Mitchell has taken over proceedings, and is now running this quiz Only Connect style.


In the first round, there's a connection between all four of these things. What's the connection?


For full authenticity, stick a post-it note over the next one in the sequence until you shout "NEXT!" Whilst masturbating. Obviously.


6a. Garrador, Dr. Salvador, Ramon Salazar, Osmund Saddler


6b. OG Loc, Nines and AKs, Robbing Uncle Sam, Wrong Side of the Tracks


6c. Iggy, Larry, Morton, Wendy O.

6e. Lunar Jetman, Underwurlde, Knight Lore, Entombed


6f. Soul Edge, M. Bison, Star Fox, Fatal Frame


7. Only Connect round 2: Fourth in the Sequence

Here are three things that occur in a sequence. What's the fourth thing in a sequence? Remember it's not just four random things but a progression that connects them all.


7a. Werewolf, Thunder Dragon, Bear Man, ...


7b. Central Cavern, Cold Room, The Menagerie, ...


7c. Mario Kart Wii, Tetris, Super Mario Bros., ...


7d. Operation: Anchorage, The Pitt, Broken Steel, ...


7e. Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, ...


7f. The Legend of Zelda, The Adventure of Link, A Link to the Past, ...


8. Only Connect round 3: The Connecting Wall

And here the teams will put together four groups of four items each. Can you spot the connections?




If you don't know how this game works, head here.


9. Only Connect round 4: Missing Vowels

These titles have had their vowels removed but the consonants are in the right order, but maybe spaced oddly. What are they?


9a. N NKN










9f. EL T




9h. MGMN


9i. B YNT T


9j. LNWK

They were all in IV too, which why went with that. Malcolm McDowell as Tolwyn, Mark Dascascos as Catscratch and John Spencer, hamming it up as Paulsen also crept into IV :)


Tis one of my faves for it's complete lunacy. Also Casper Van Dien in a blink and youll miss him role :)



Bloody glad this is back, missed it!

Bravo to everyone who put this together. The anagrams took me forever, the next in the sequence section is bugging me especially the ones that I know what the subject is but just can't recall the next item. The welsh games I've not a hope on (except for the obvious one!) but overall I think I've done pretty well :D (If I'm right of course)

That's a pretty stonking showing Bicurious; I didn't think anyone would get the connecting wall - and you can't Google it either! How hard did you find it overall?


You should think about 7f a little more. But you're close. 2f is a fraction out, but of the same lineage.


The Welsh thing was just for larks, the occasional one I could see through because I've come across the word 'ynys' for example.


I did the whole thing myself but named some of the rounds for different posters.

It was a tough old quiz Onyx, again kudos for putting it together.

The anagrams were the toughest part to work out as I said, although the next answer round really did me in. The connect 4 board was a little tricky, I got the molyneux connection immediately, NES games were also quite straightforward although I had 5 to pick from so thought I might be wrong until I twigged on the female characters one.


Also the box art one I got wrong must be king of fighters then as it's not Fatal fury 2.


Definitely going to be a good challenge for everyone. I think being a 35yr old lifelong gamer (and sort of collector) helped me.
