Guesstimate Quiz: How Well Do You Know The Wine Society? Tuesday 9th June, 1-2pm

As lockdown prevails, we’re very excited to continue our new lunchtime event for our Community members - our Guesstimate Quiz!


Guesstimate Quiz: How Well Do You Know The Wine Society? Tuesday 9th June, 1-2pm

Our fun ‘How Well Do You Know The Wine Society?’ quiz will be a test of your guessing skills – we’ll ask you about a range of facts relating to the history of The Wine Society and ask you to guess the correct (or in some cases, ‘nearest’!) answer.

The winner will receive the eternal glory of being assigned our ‘Quiz Champion’ Community badge.

How to take part

Log in to the Community before 1pm on Tuesday 9th June and there’ll be a ‘ LIVE FROM 1PM: Guesstimate Quiz ’ topic where the event will take place. The chat will be in written format - like a regular topic here. We’ll ask the questions, you type your answers - easy!

We hope you can make it along! Who’s planning on joining us for lunch?

  • I’ll be there!
  • I can’t make it this time, enjoy!

Work is light enough this week that I might be able to time my lunch to join this time!

I’ll try to make it!

Sorry, cutting grass then. Not mine, which takes 20 minutes, cricket club - takes 2 hours!

Hello everyone!

After the success of last week’s Guesstimate quiz, we’re excited to try it again today! First, let’s start by seeing who’s here - can you please vote below if you intend to play along live?

Here’s how we’ll play:

One by one, we’ll be posting questions on the theme of ‘How well do you know The Wine Society’.

The idea is to be among the fastest to guess the answers.

BUT to make it fairer (and to let other people play along later) we want you to post your answers using the BLUR SPOILER function.

Let’s start by checking everyone can do this:

Type a one-word reply below (anything you like ‘Here’, ‘Test’, whatever!) and before posting, highlight/select the word you’ve typed, and then click the little cog option above:

And click the ‘blur spoiler’ option.

The preview of your word should now look like this:


Can you all give this a try now so we can check you’re all happy with how the Blur Spoiler function works?


I’m in a bad mood…

We’ll post the first question in a second. The fastest person to reply (but use the blur spoiler feature to obscure your answer!) gets 3 points.

The second fastest gets 2 points, and all other correct answers get 1 point.

We’ll be keeping a tally of the scores… and we’ll keep you updated after each round with who’s in the lead!

Everyone ready?!


Ok! Question 1:

1. In what year did The Wine Society move to Stevenage?
