    This year's trivia contest numbering system (Glagolitic) was brought to you by Old Slavic.
    Old Slavic: for when New Slavic is too understandable.


    So yeah, there were some complications with the last question and the chess one and one or two others, but all in all, it was fun hosting!

    I hope you all enjoyed the contest!

    @Utisz, thanks for putting it together! And for taking some risks with diabolical cleverness.

    Thanks @lbloom for being an outstanding anchor for the complex! Without your help we probably would have lost.

    Well done, lbloom! Big thanks, Utisz! You've really outdone yourself this year! Google-proof trivia is a hell of a thing to compile. You seem to have given this place a shot in the arm, which is much appreciated on my part. Please have even more pro wrestling next time so I can earn respect as an intellectual via the leaderboard.

    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    It still surprises me how y'all can get these questions! I may have to dial up the diabolical cleverness a little the next time (not sure there'll be a next time admittedly ).

    Thanks @lbloom for being an outstanding anchor for the complex! Without your help we probably would have lost.
    Indeed, impressive stuff! There was some stiff competition from Serac in the end.

    My pleasure!

    Also you now inheret the much-coveted throne from Horatio of Trivia Champion. @Ptah (or mod?), any chance of moving Horatio's trivia trophy to lbloom?

    Haha, you got me. I was thinking I needed a sports question in there somewhere and then I saw your avatar and I thought ...

    Google-proof trivia is a tricky thing indeed! Try searching for "egg novel 1920s", fffuuuuu.

    Thanks for the quiz @Utisz, and for saying my name three times in the mirror about a week before it started.
