Odd, I got them all right but it gave me a total of 14/15 so re-did it with the same answers and it said 15/15?

There again I have read the book…………………….and knew them before that

Only 10/15, pretty poor really. :-( Ironically my first thoughts about two of them were correct but I changed my mind as they seemed too simple. :banghead:

I scored 15 on Mastermind last night and 2 1/2 right on Universally Challenged as well - but I hadn’t read the book or know the people, hehehe 😏

That's odd... I'm sure I posted my result on here last night!

I got 10/15, which I don't think is too bad for a noobie to the town!

Ha! I immediately thought of the Maharajahs Well, which guided my thinking,,,, although not really appropriate.

Ooh Na, na, na! :))

But there’s another one coming up, which is far more taxing, where guessing really is the name of the game! :)

14, but some lucky guesses. Managed a few more on UC, cheering on my alma mater to an heroic victory 🤗
