University Challenge devotees will immediately recognise the Meeples team captain – it’s the mighty, all-conquering Gail Trimble, who led Corpus Christi College, Oxford to a famous victory in the 2009 UC final. (Until it was stripped of the title, but we’ll gloss over that).
Trimble’s astounding general knowledge made her an instant celebrity and earned her the nickname “the human Google”. Tonight she leads a team comprising her husband and her brother. But will she need them or will she storm the answers all by herself?
The Meeples are up against the Tequila Slammers, and after a sluggish start it’s a properly nailbiting heat, complete with surprises.
Victoria Coren Mitchell hosts as a team of boardgamers, led by University Challenge alum Gail Trimble, takes on three lovers of Latin cuisine in the quiz testing general knowledge and lateral thinking. The players must make connections between four things that may at first not appear to be linked, with one set of clues consisting of Tom Finney, Joe Wurzelbacher, Thomas Crapper and Mario.
