TD 323 - The Crown - FINAL STANDINGS

Post by totebags » Sun Dec 04, 2016 8:16 pm

Welcome to TD 323! A few weeks ago, I binged-watched The Crown on Netflix. For the uninitiated, The Crown is a Netflix-original program that chronicles the life of Queen Elizabeth II from the eve of her wedding in 1947 through her accession in 1952 and up to 1956. So I've written up some questions relating to (sometimes tangentially) Her Majesty!

Note: When I volunteered to do this TD, I had a ton of free time. Unfortunately, I've been absolutely slammed at work and could only think up 8 questions over the past few days. My apologies! To make up for it, most of the questions are singleton-friendly so I'm hoping for a low scoring, competitive game.

THE RULES:

1. The object of this game is to provide the correct answer you think will be the least popular. The lower your total score, the better.

2. Obviously, you may only use the information stored in your own brain. No Googling, asking a friend, asking a stranger, etc.

3. The score for a correct answer is the number of players who give that answer.

4. The score for an incorrect answer is the DEPOSE score—that is, the most popular correct answer for that question—plus 5 points.

5. You may ABDICATE one question for a total of 0 points.

6. In addition, you may DEPOSE one question to receive the same score as the most popular correct answer.

7. If there’s a tie for first place, the earliest submission wins.

8. The deadline for entering this game is 9 pm (EDT) on Monday, December 12. Enter by sending me a PM or, preferably, completing this Google form: https://goo.gl/forms/qOaHnLwWkGk7MW8h2

tl;dr -- One DROP ("ABDICATE"), one SHEEP ("DEPOSE")

THE QUESTIONS:

1. Name a UK prime minister who served during Elizabeth II’s reign (1952-present). 13 possible answers.

2. The first 17 individuals who are in line of succession to the British throne are descendants of Elizabeth II. (The 18th person in line for the throne--David Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley--is her nephew.) Name one of these first 17 individuals.

3. Name a former or present-day country that has featured a likeness of Elizabeth II on its currency at any time in its history. 20+ answers.

4. Name a royal residence currently occupied by the British royal family. (I'll accept privately-owned residences as well as crown-owned estates to avoid confusion.) 15+ possible answers.

5. Name a state leader/head of state/ruler who was in power on the day Elizabeth II succeeded to the throne (February 6, 1952). For clarity’s sake, I will accept monarchs, prime ministers, presidents, etc. Many, many possible answers.

6. As a historical drama, unsurprisingly, The Crown has loads of portrayals of real-life people. Identify one person who is portrayed in The Crown from the photos below. MUST INCLUDE LETTER.

7. Prince Charles began attending the University of Cambridge in 1967, where he read history, archaeology and anthropology and graduated in 1970. He is supposedly the first British monarch or heir to the throne to complete a university degree. Today, Cambridge is comprised of 31 colleges. Name one of them.

8. Helen Mirren won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Elizabeth II in the 2006 film The Queen. Since that win, several actresses have been nominated for Best Actress for their performances as actual (i.e., non-fictional) people. Name the Oscar-nominated actress who portrayed one of people listed below. MUST INCLUDE LETTER.

I claim no credit for the updates; many have done before me. :)

Though that reminds me, I need to enter, even though my results will be similar to 321. (That's why I scored my entry, so I could see myself near the top for once. ;) )

Clearly I have no idea how to play this game.

At least I don't have any incorrects... so far. I'm usually good for 2-3 of those a game.

QUESTION 3:
Name a former or present-day country that has featured a likeness of Elizabeth II on its currency at any time in its history. 20+ answers.

Because it's the holiday season--and I didn't have the tightest of phrasing, I'm very accepting of answers here. Feel free to disagree but I am a big believer in "tie goes to the runner."
