  1. The game is 12 inches?

    Dorky – 4 right, 4 points – I knew I was going to confuse Sherlock’s address with the Sanctum Sanctorum. I also confuse some stories with Edgar Allen Poe’s stories. Mycroft is the name of a few open source products I like. I think the name is very subtle and clever.
    Geeky – 1 right, 2 points – Nope, I don’t know much about Holmes…
    Nerdy – 1 right, 3 points – …but I can deduce and guess well enough to scrape a few points together.

    I think the only true Holmes story I read was The Five Pips, which had the KKK as the villains.

  2. Really? “The Speckled Band”?

    Round One: 10 (10)
    Round Two: 7 (14)
    Round Three: 6 (18)


    You forgot to include, “how many well-known pop-culture characters have met Sherlock Holmes?”
    Uh. wait. Maybe that should be, “how many well-known pop-culture characters have never met Sherlock Holmes?”
    How many times has Holmes solved the Jack the Ripper murders?
    How many Holmes pastiches feature both Moriarty and Irene Adler?
    No, wait.
    How many Holmes pastiches don’t include both Moriarty or Irene Adler?
    Or at least, include either Moriarty or Irene Adler?

    How many times, in the Doyle canon, does Holmes say, “Elementary, my dear Watson”?
    I have zero other suggestions.
    Good quiz!
