Christmas Quiz 2020

Traditions, love them or hate them. At the end of each year, traditions seem to be more prominent than before. The same goes for MRC, with the "traditional" MSX Chrismas Quiz.

We are happy to tell you we'll have another Christmas Quiz this year, although we want to change some things. Especially concerning the level of difficulty of the past year, which is a thorn in our side. With a slightly easier version, we want to engage more users to participate.

As previous years, we plan to offer 24 small puzzles in this pre-Christmas season.

To fill the gaps, we are looking forward to also include puzzles from you. So please send your puzzles with pictures, sound snippets or texts to the usual MSX Christmas puzzle address within the next days to dieantwoord@gmx.net.

This year's prize is a Philips Music Module.
But of course we are open for further donations ;)

Start will be on December 1st. So, look forward to our upcoming puzzle!

Sorry about that tfh, I've been a bit occupied with other things. It arrived here in August during my holiday. That's only 3 months ago Tongue

tfh: any particular items you're interested in? Can I make you happy with something which I can add?

LOL Smile Well, an original Zanax(-Ex) would be nice...
But seriously: not really... I use my Zemmix-Neo and it more or less does everything I need to. I've only ever though about getting a nework device for it, but I guess I would have ended up using it only once or twice anyway. So I might end up only adding something to the box. And maybe just try one or two things just for the fun of it Smile

Good idea, some sound/manual snippets. I'll see what I can cook up (without making promises, but my intentions are good Wink )

You guys are saving the quiz! I was really in doubt to continue the tradition of organizing the quiz but I’m delighted how much good contributions arrive.
This will be a great one (again).

Maybe it's somewhere in the rules already, but as this is the first time I sent in a question it's the first time I think about it:
You're not allowed to answer your own question, are you?

Of course you have to answer your own question. You will even get a point for answering your riddle (otherwise I likely don't know the right answer.) Wink
