All the quizzes are open for all, and entry is free. A few of them will be in a non-competitive format, with teams being made up from all those who attend. For the competitive quizzes, teams will consist of two or three persons (see individual quiz listings below).

If you like the life cinematic, the SEQC Movie Quiz will test the limits of your knowledge of the subject.

ITZ Play-off Match – report and results

In one of the most acrimonious quizzes that I have ever seen at SEQC (so much so you could easily have imagined it to be a battle of Feku vs Pappu supporters), the Panjim Psmartypants fought off the challenge of their local and outstation competitors and squeezed through to the Final of the ITZ competition. In the Final, to be held on Sunday November 17, they will be up against Aldona Ambotik, the Mad-gaonkars and the Panjim Pastafarians.

While the Psmartypants held the lead throughout the match, some sensational developments in the final buzzer round brought both the other teams into contention with just one question to go. At this stage, chaos ensued as buzzers were pressed, rules were modified on the fly and curses were flung across the room.

Play-off Match
QM: Lynn Barreto Miranda

1st: Panjim Psmartypants (Nitish Wagle*, Anant Lawande, Anil Rodrigues, Harsh Bhatkuly, Neil Aurelio Nunes, Soham Gaunekar) – 150 points
2nd: Panjim Procrastinators (Rajiv D'Silva*, Amit Shet, Anant Sridhar Prabhu, Nitish Fatarpekar, Raunaq Rao, Sunil Sardessai, Tallulah D'Silva) – 130
3rd: Ponda Ponderers (Ameya Mardolkar*, Anirudh Shirsat, Ashwin Mysore, Raghunandan Mysore) – 110

Through to the finals: Panjim Psmartypants

The BiG Q is back!

Are you the best quizzer in Goa? Where in the rankings do you stand? Are you getting better from year to year?

These are some of the questions that participating in the BiG Q can answer for you. Of course, the questions you will have to answer will be quite different. There will be 120 of them, to be answered in 90 minutes. Covering all kinds of subjects – current affairs, politics, geography, history, movies, music, sports, business, science, religion... – you name the topic, and there is likely to be a question on it. It's a solo written quiz, so you'll need to bring a pen, a backing board – and a brain full of information.

The BiG Q 2013 – this is the fifth one in the annual series – will be held on Saturday November 9, starting 5pm. There are two venues – for people in the north, the nearest centre will be the International Centre Goa (ICG) in Dona Paula; for those in the south, the Urban Health Centre opposite Hospicio Hospital in Margao.

The quiz is being conducted by the Sunday Evening Quiz Club (SEQC), Goa's only group of its kind. Answers will be revealed immediately after the quiz is done, and corrections carried out on the spot, so you know your score before you leave the venue. There are prizes for the Best Open Quizzer and the Best School Quizzer at each of the two venues, besides the overall BiG Q crown for the 'Best-in-Goa Quizzer'.

To register for the quiz, mail seqcgoa@gmail.com, mentioning a contact number and the centre (Panjim/Margao) at which you wish to take the quiz. For more information, call Anjali Sen Gupta at 9860089733.

ITZ Group Stage Match 6 – report and results

In a pulsating finale to the group stage of the ITZ tournament, the three-man Panjim Psmartypants won the day, but it wasn't enough to prevent the Aldona Ambotik team from entering the Final of the tournament. The 50-point cushion that the North Goa team carried into the second leg was sufficient to see them through, and send the Panjim team into a Play-off that will see Rajiv D'Silva and Harsh Bhatkuly – otherwise almost unseparable as a team – up against each other.

A highlight of Match 6 was certainly the sublime venue – Arco Iris, the home of Bennita and Ganesh Subramaniam, and home venue of the South Goa Leftovers team – was the latest in the sequence of beautiful settings SEQC has managed to have quizzes in.

Match 6 (Green Group leg 2)
QM: Lynn Barreto Miranda

1st: Panjim Psmartypants (Nitish Wagle*, Harsh Bhatkuly, Soham Gaunekar) – 160 points

3rd: South Goa Leftovers (Mahesh Prabhu*, Bennita Ganesh, Ganesh Subramaniam, Savio Victoria, Tanmay Naik) – 55

In Memoriam – Doc's Last Quiz

On the 1st of August this year we lost a friend and fellow-quizzer - Dr. V. R. Muralidharan. When people depart in so sudden and unexpected fashion, they sometimes leave behind unfinished business. Doc was in the process of setting a quiz for SEQC (he always was in the process of setting a quiz), contents of which have been retrieved from his computer by his family. We can think of no more fitting way to celebrate his life than to finish what he started. His daughter Deepa has kindly agreed to put the finishing touches to the quiz and to conduct it for us. Do attend.
