Trivia Trap

Holiday Mystery!

By Peter Underwood

Congratulations to Tony Nelson, who appears to have hacked in his favour. The more entries we get, the quicker we can end his reign of terror. WHO WILL KNOCK HIM FROM HIS THRONE? See below for the answers.

May! The fifth month! Already! This year is absolutely flying by, and if you’re anything like me, you wish it would slow down juuuuust a little. That’s why Golden Week is such a godsend: a block of free time that gives us all a chance to slow down, take a few deep breaths and spend some time solving this day off-themed Trivia Trap! (Last month’s winners can be found here)

As always, we have two wonderful prizes for you to compete over:

1)¥1000 Starbucks gift card
2) Mysterious Mystery Box of Mysterious Mystery! Tell us what kind of stuff you’re into, and place your faith in me to deliver a worthy prize. It could be anything–even a ¥1000 Starbucks gift card!
