April's Quiz - Debbie's Not So Googly Photoshop Party

As April's quiz host, I've been trying to come up with something a bit different; my main goal being non Google-able answers.

Each day I'll be posting a Photoshopped image of a Walt Disney World location. I haven't prepared too much in advance because it's difficult to gauge the complexity. If I'm struggling to strike a balance between off-puttingly demanding and overly easy, I may well change the theme. To this end, your feedback will be appreciated as we go along.

If I can work out how to do it, I'll also be posting a tie-breaker question on days 1, 10 and 19 which will be along the lines of a Catchphrase conundrum. I'll reveal 1/9th of the image each day and points will be awarded on a descending scale (9 points for a correct guess on day one, 8 on day two...). Only one guess will be permitted, per player, per image. The points accumulated from this element will only come in to play in the event of a tie for any position.

Does that all make sense?

Woweee Wow Wow, Debbie. This sounds intriguing. Or as another Churchill once said, "It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key." I say players deserve points just for figuring out everything they need to do to play! Talk about raising the bar!

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that it was Winston, rather than Matt, who uttered this. Am I right? Am I?

Yes, Winston, although I think Matt has demonstrated the concept more than once in his life.

Sounds a great idea Deb. I hate quizzes where you can Google the answer - where's the skill in that?

I shall try and enter this one as I love a challenge - look forward to finding out how it works
