Steptoe Quiz.

Postby frenchy » Fri Feb 06, 2009 8:02 am

Hi Guys and Girls

Consider yourselfs Steptoe buffs!!!!! How do you fancy a Quiz.

It's 50 questions.
Each question is a classic quote from Albert or Harold.
All you have to do is name the episode each quote comes from.

There's no cuddley toy prizes for the winner, it's purely to test your knowledge on our favorite subject and a bit of fun.

Beleive me, It's not as easy as it sounds.

Let me know you thoughts on this idea.

I'm in the process of putting it together.
Don't worry Bob, I won't post it Direct to the forum. I'll add a link to access the Quiz.

Cheers. An 'ever so bored'...... Colin :P

P.S. Surely my back will get better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Hells Bells Frenchy !!!!

I have been trying to code a quiz for sometime now !!!!

The problem I keep getting is randomising the questions as O was to see if a high score can be reached.

If I ever get there I will include your questions.

Great idea - just dont ask us where the line 'One Burp And You're Empty' comes from as its in many episodes lol... perhaps the most used joke apart from the obvious insults!

lol

Steptoe Quiz.

Postby frenchy » Fri Feb 06, 2009 9:07 pm

Hi Guys.

I have recently sat and watched every episode TWICE. With the second viewing I watched each one and pulled out one lines solely for the quiz.
I was aware that alot of the puns are repeated in different episodes and I think I have avoided these.
Of course because of this it makes the quiz harder to solve.

All I will say is the clues are not the classic one liners we all know and love.

Example.................................(this is not one of the clues from the quiz)......................................

Which episode did this line come from?
Yes, well, I didn't like the name Steptoe, I thought it sounded a bit common.


You may think, blimey where does he find the time for quiz's and script's.
I don't normally, but at the moment I am in bed with a slipped disc and a trapped nerve in my back. Have been for nearly 10 wks now.

Not sure when I will get this quiz running, I will only go ahead when I have Bob's O.k.

Cheers. Colin
