The event has quickly gained a reputation for being one of the toughest quizzes around, with 10 rounds of devilishly cunning questions, this year culminating in a match the physicist to their equation round.

The event was sold out yet again, with additional seating having to be provided on the rooftop terrace to accommodate everyone. The event kicked off with a finger buffet while teams pondered on a witty team name. Of particular note were the three-strong team ‘Top, Bottom and Strange Quarks’ and the all-male ‘Brotons’. Congratulations to the five-strong team ‘Not Even Wrong’ on an incredible winning performance and special thanks to both the question writer and question master that made the night as special as it was.
