The spreadsheet found this week's questions to be very similar to last week's: somewhat on the difficult side, with one team getting much easier questions in the first half of the quiz and their opponents getting easier questions in the second half. Last week it was the teams that went first in each half that tended to do better; this week it was the teams that went second.

Also as last week, the Entertainment marks were very much on the low side. Last week's questions are currently 23rd and 25th (out of 32); this week's are 24th and 27th.

In the Specialist questions, the teams that went second scored 99% of their average marks, while those that went first scored only 75%. In the General Knowledge, the teams that went second scored 110% and those that went first scored only 92%.

Overall, the balance (according to the spreadsheet) was excellent: the teams on both sides scored 95% of their average marks. This may be scant consolation to the Pack Horse Bowling Club, as the spreadsheet marks each set separately. We will think about changing this next season, now that there is only one team setting the questions each week.
