After a break over the summer months, the good people at UNICEF Belgium have put together another anagram quiz to exercise your grey cells and at the same time make a contribution to UNICEF.
This time, the answers are the names of (mostly) well-known animals. As before, the number of letters corresponding to each clue is given in parentheses and the number in bold represents the total number of letters in the animal’s name. The quiz sheet can be downloaded here.
For the tie-break question this month, another sporting question will be used. This time it will be the total number of points scored in the final of the European Rugby Cup to be played between Racing 92 of Paris and the Exeter Chiefs on Saturday, 17 October at 18h45 Belgian time.
As a guide for those not au fait with the world of Rugby Union, the total points scored in the four quarter-final and two semi-final matches were 34, 42, 44, 46, 53 and 63. The two teams contesting the final are Exeter, who scored 38 and 28 points in their quarter-final and semi-final matches and Racing 92 whose equivalent scores were 38 and 38 points.
All answers must be submitted no later than 13h00 Belgian time on Saturday 17 October and the winners will be announced on Sunday 18 October.
The winner and ‘Animal 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 total points scored.
Prizes - 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 quiz score but whose tie-break answer is closest to the actual number of total points scored.
