Great news for all dedicated Quizzers: UNICEF Belgium has announced its second ‘Lockdown’ Anagram Quiz to keep you amused.
This month's quiz consists of 20 questions that result in anagrams of surnames of well-known authors. For each of the questions the number of letters corresponding to each clue are given (in parentheses) and a number in bold represents the total number of letters in the author’s name.
A tie-break question is also set with participants asked to estimate the number of cases of COVID-19 in Belgium up to and including Friday 22 May. The source of this number will be the ‘Global Situation Update as of Saturday 23 May’ published on the ECDC website around noon on that day.
The UNICEF Question and Answer sheet can be accessed and downloaded here:

The document above is a revised version with a few more hints!
Answers must be received no later than midnight CEST on Sunday 17 May and the winners will be announced on Saturday 23 May, once the tie-break answer is known.
The winner and ‘Author Anagram Quiz Champion’ will be the person who has the highest score and whose tie-break answer (if applicable) is closest to the true actual number of cases.
The winner will receive three bottles of Petit Pas Saint Emilion Grand Cru. There will also be a prize of a bottle of champagne for the person who does not achieve the highest score, but whose tie-break answer is closest to the actual number of cases.
If you are interested in participating in this month’s quiz, you should email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive before the above deadline.
