FunkQuest – Season 3 – Episode 1 – Barbara Braendlein v Casey Bell

Barbara and Casey are the first two players in this third season of FunkQuest and inevitably nervous.

For her first Question Barbara chose the  'VR Mask' icon and we found out that she has a declutter every saturday. She says she is a  'maintainer'which stops her having deep clean.

Casey's first question was 'When did you realise you didnt know everything?' This was in his first year in college. Having little confidence, he was afraid to ask questions in high school and  believed what he was told was right. At College he decide that it would be better to research everything for himself.

Barbara's favourite word - her question 2 answer - is Ubiquitous - at least for that day anyway - meaning 'everywhere' she felt justified to use it everywhere.

Answering the giraffe question; Casey was a bit stumped, until he finally deciding he would hide a giraffe be disguising it.

When did you last go to the library? was answered by Barbara and due to Covid 19 she doesn't go quite as often as she did. What used to be a regular adventure with her kids has turned into a kerbside wait, until books are distributed by people in safety clothing and overseen by a policeman.

Casey revealed in his third question that he had regretted posting an opinion on Face Book, which meant the he had to apologise despite saying what he felt was truthful.

Barbara felt that she would like to get back in touch with her bass player, who had been a true friend during her college years as a jazz pianist. She realises that old memories connot always be relived and that people move on.

Question 4 and Casey chose the 'fish art' icon. His answer to 'What popular childrens thing he disliked' was 'Ladybug girl' a popular tv programme which his niece had become addicted to.

Bucket Lists can be contraversial but, not being a goal setter Barbara hadn't thought about one at all. After a lot of cajoling, seeing the sites of London (England) might end up on her list - but her her own choice wuld be to visit Amsterdam.

The final question and answer of this game was Casey's- His first record bought -turned out to be a cassette - 'The PointerSisters'  "Breakout"-  he played it many times.

What are the FUNKQUEST rules?

FunkQuest is a fun interactive online game that features five rounds. Each player selects the icon which most tweaks their interest.  Each Funky icon has a Funky question.
The question shown may or may not be related to the icon.

SO potential Funksters have to think on their feet. The winner is decided by the audience and goes through to the next round.

What's so good about FUNKQUEST ?

Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.
Listening (without prejudice) to new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network truly qualifies as FUNKY.
Each question has a strict time limit. So no multi-headed long and complicated self indulgent stories to endure.  Just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!
