It has already become a little tradition to offer a Christmas quiz at the MRC over the last years.
The rules are simple:

  • From the first to the 23th of December, a photo with MSX specific content will be made available here every day.
  • You answer the question and send our MRC member hamlet a private message to DIEANTWOORD@gmx.net on the same day with your proposed solution.
  • The member with the most correct solutions wins the prize at the end.

Everybody who wants to make own contributions, is welcome. Just send your riddle to the addres below.
Unfortunately the Lootbox from last year disappeared, but we will announce some nice prizes this time, too.
If you want to contribute prizes, we thank you very much.
Also this time applies:
Comment the questions, but send your solution by mail to our member hamlet. For each correct solution there will be one point, the participants with the most points will win.
Simple? Yes, that's it.

Now, send your contributions to the email address DIEANTWORT@gmx.net or let us know you ideas and improvements here in the comments.

We will have a lot of fun!

See you here on December 1st!

About that lootbox, I wonder where it went and who took what... Call me curious, I'm shameless Big smile
I can't contribute to the prices this year because I only have the stricktly needed gear here, but if hamlet has other means of donation, I'd gladly add a coin Smile

Thanks Meits, but no money will be involved. I remember dan tooked the 8020 and put some stuff in, too. Louthax has given the box to somebody at the Nijmegen fair, but I did‘t remember whom. Would be nice we could reanimate the box.

Hi guys,

So we have a first riddle before the official start Smile The lootbox went to Edoz at Nijmegen. Maybe it has just been forgotten later in the chain or...

It would've been nice if the guy who has it put in a bit more effort to send it to the next in line... I think...
But how nice the idea was, it has sadly proven that this is not the perfect way...

Thanks for organising once again the quiz, Hamlet. Cannot wait until december. I will contribute a prize too. It's a pity the box is lost. I almost took it instead the 8020. By the way, it is safe at home. Still playing old games with it. https://www.msx.pics/image/VgOpm Do you guess the hidden word?

Hi! If i remember correctly i checked your profile at that time and i was not able to see your email in your profile...
It seems, now it is. Maybe i did something wrong. Sorry for that. And my apologies for my maybe laziness.

I still have the box. So no worries. And i didn't took anything out as there was nothing of my interest Wink Although i played some games and the box was amazing fun! I will forward you the BOX so you are still able to take out what you like and then you can send it to the next winner.
