The Half Moon, Shaftesbury (Every Tuesday from 8pm) with Hugo
The Old Thatch, Wimborne (Every Thursday from 8:30pm) with Karl
I can see only one chapter remaining in the story of my life and I would like it to be the best chapter; the time when, finally, I make a difference to the World and justify my existence on Earth. I have a new mission: to raise half a million pounds for those whose aims are more worthy than mine, and to give away half a million pounds in prizes to those who find me entertaining. This is the sort of millionaire I would like to be.
I’m not on holiday in Gran Canaria, I’m taking my first steps here towards an international career as a *philanthropist. I know; get me. More information on the organisation that I am involved in will appear here just as soon as I have found the words for them to describe their mission. It’s on my to-do list. I live by the sea, at the mouth of a valley, accessible only by a mountainous route which takes me through breathtaking and sphincter tightening countryside. I am 1700 miles away from my wife and children, working on my legacy, trying to make a living on the side so that I can pay the mortgage. I use the word “we” throughout the rest of this site as I am not alone. If I may, I would like to share our journey with you.
This documentation is also a work in progress and will appear here in due course. Right now I have no plans to return to the UK; may I suggest that you visit me here instead? This is my home You could live here for free, take a room, or rent an apartment. All guests enjoy inclusive entertainment and complete freedom from any kind of connectivity. I run regular excursions to the nearest 4g mast, in Mogán. My private accommodation comprises a cool, silent room in the west wing of the building, a bathroom I share with two cockroaches, and an office overlooking the sea on the first floor. I live with a small ad-hoc family of international travellers, musicians, and designers….whose roles right now are chef, housekeepers, gardeners and a repair man. Find me and re-connect with me by searching for “quizalot” or simply add /quizalot to the url for FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram . These places and some direct methods of communication are listed in the footer of all the pages of this site. The Spanish version of the site is nearly ready so you can join me here too.
We are busy creating two versions of the quiz. Here in Spain our events are designed for an international audience and include full visual presentation via TV screens throughout the bustling bars and cafés of such hotspots as Las Palmas and Mogán. In the UK, and for an audience in rural pub/restaurant settings, the original version is still in place. It came as a surprise to David that he is not the only quizmaster of worth. We take our inspiration from gameshows on TV that you may love or hate, but gosh, anything is better than 50 questions on Victorian architecture.
Every event needs a finale with lights, music and fireworks. Well, maybe fireworks is pushing it a bit, but we have a finale end game called “Who Wants To Pick A Prize” This game will be revealed in a future update, but just so you know, we have a sponsor for this round and the top prize is €1000.00. Be excited, be very excited.
