Verbivores v Taverners

Series 12 - Episode 20 Verbivores v Taverners



High drama. A seesawing lead. Fiendish questions. Tonight’s match between the Verbivores and the Taverners has it all going on, including some authentic OC nightmare moments. Imagine you had to multiply four by seven under TV pressure… and blew it. (It’s alright, because the software engineer in question very much redeems himself on the next set of clues.)

Or imagine you’re faced with the Wall – and as you stand there, your team draws a deathly blank, staring at it for two and half minutes of hell as you prod random tiles and hope they might go together. It doesn’t bear thinking about. As Victoria Coren says, a “Wall-tastrophe!”


The Verbivores take on the Taverners in this second-round match, with a place in the next stage of the quiz at stake. They must use patience, lateral thinking and sheer inspiration to make connections between groups of four things that may appear at first not to be linked, with one set of clues consisting of ...Bill, ...Baby, ...Homepage, ...Quartet.
