Wine Trivia Wednesday–#86 Answers

As I sat down to write this week’s quiz, I realized that it might be time to take a break from it for a few weeks. I have a bunch of articles that I need to get out of me and frankly, I am all quizzed out (at least for now).

Last week, was a bit of a summary of the Monthly Wine Writing Challenge, so here are the answers:

Being the complete data geek that I am, I recently gathered together some data on our own little MWWC and this week’s quiz is based on an “analysis” of those
1. How many unique contributors have there been to the Challenge?
Including the late entry mid-week, there have been 55 unique entrants (one is no longer in existence).
2. How many total entries have there been to the Challenge?
Again, including the late entries last week, there have been 143 total submissions.
3. Talk-a-Vino, The Armchair Sommelier, and The Wine Raconteur all share a number in common when it comes to the Challenge–what is that number?
These three have all entered the challenge 8 times (out of nine).
4. The Armchair Sommelier holds the record for most consecutive weeks submitting and binNotes has the current longest active streak. What is the sum of these two numbers?
The Armchair Sommelier entered the first seven challenges and binNotes has entered the last five, therefore the answer to this question is 12.
Bonus Question: What is missing?

Devotion, Fear, Feast, Mystery, Oops, Possession, Transportation

These are the themes of the Challenges thus far, with “Luck” and “Trouble” being the other two.

We had one player last week, Anatoli of Talk-a-Vino who was pretty darned close on all the answers, so he is this week’s winner! Congratulations!

So again, there is no quiz this week, but I plan on returning to them at some point in the future!

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    That is a nice summary. I would have submitted “Fear” if I didn’t get hacked. Looking forward to the next topic.
