Here's the third special Olympics quiz!

Welcome to the twenty-third instalment of the Quiz of the Week series! This is our third of the twice-weekly quizzes as part of TSR's Tokyo 2020 Olympics celebration. This one is all about our host nation, Japan!

Visit the master thread for more details of the series, and to sign up for notifications when a quiz goes live!

How it works
This quiz is conducted via Google Forms, and you have until Wednesday at midnight (or Tuesday at 11.59pm if that is clearer) to play the game! The form will ask you to fill in your TSR username, and this is essential if you want to be in contention for the prize! Please feel free to comment and share your scores below – this also makes verifying the scores easier! Please also avoid using Google, as it spoils the fun and your score may not count.

The tiebreaker question is also back! This is a question where the answer will be a big number, and if we have a tie for first place, the rep prize will go to whoever gets closest to the correct answer!


Scoring
The form will automatically score the quiz for you. Once again we're able to offer a prize of 100 rep, thanks to the Community Staff!

Happy quizzing!

The competition has closed and the results are in!

1st :king1:: RandomNerd1729 (10 points)
2nd :king2:: Vapordave (9 points)
=3rd :king3:: CatusStarbright and 1666gfol (8 points)
=5th: CheeseIsVeg and zay90210 (6 points)
=7th: Andrew97, becausethenight, 04MR17 and -Eirlys- (5 points)
11th: Napp (4 points)
=12th: laurawatt, nikkiblonsky and dua7860 (3 points)
15th: Rakas21 (2 points)

Again we didn't need the tiebreaker, but for interest, the population of Tokyo was estimated to be 13,960,236 in January 2021!

Therefore this quiz's winner is RandomNerd1729, and hopefully Pink Unicorn will be able to sort you out with your 100 rep prize! :woo:

I'm also pleased to report that there were no signs of people cheating in this quiz after the warning last time.

I'll also repeat my call that if you want to take part in more quizzes, then let me know if you want to go on the alert list to be tagged when new Quizzes of the Week go up, go to and watch our master thread, and don't forget to go and play the two most recent quizzes, which are live here and here!

Hmm, nor me. I think there have been some issues with the tagging on that one. :confused: You should definitely be on the list for future quizzes though!
