Last night was the second HEMA virtual pub quiz
This was supposedly bringing together the best players from the two runs of the last quiz they ran. I did terrible in that, so either they made a mistake or I was there for comedy value.
I did slightly better though. I was particularly proud of the fact that of the plates (i.e. fencing drawings) I’ve studied, I correctly identified them in the picture round.
I have come to the conclusion that I have different musical tastes to most of my HEMA friends as I got absolutely zero in the music round.
And it’s quite daunting when you playing a history round with people who are experts in that period of history.
But it was all lighthearted and full of dick jokes and silliness. Given I’ve not been able to fight these people – and with events being cancelled, doubt I’ll do it any time soon – it’s great to catch up and stay in touch. It’s a reminder, if nothing else, that I need to get my fitness back up so I’m ready when I can compete again.
They’re organising an 80s Movie quiz next week and I’m up for that as I think my knowledge will be far better. So fingers crossed that my next report from a virtual quiz will be a far better result.
