One year ago, We started a quiz to sweeten the pre-christmas time, which was a nice thing to do. As there was 16 questions over 8 weeks, I decided to repeat this, but this time with a daily riddle from 1st to 24th december.
Thanks to kind MSX users, there are also more prices to win. For example game cartridges and a complete Philips 8020 MSX computer.
As I have to do this quiz for my own this year, please be forgiving. It should make a lot of fun for you and me. I also have a job to to, preparations for christmas and a family to care for.
If you got any suggestions to make this a better quiz, please let me know.
Here are the rules:
Points a good thing to messure, let´s use them again!
There will be a ascending point system, like last year, try to keep the chances for beginners and John Hassink the same. This would look like:

Day 1-1 POINT: One Standart , your only change to get an odd number!
Day 2-2 POINTS: One more than one
Day 3-3 POINTS: Three Voices of a amazing PSG
Day 4-4 POINTS: Four Generations of beloved computers
Day 5-8 POINTS: Eight kB min. amount of RAM
Day 6-12 POINTS: Twelf screens
„Santa Special“ :

Send a selfie with you and your favourite system to win a special price, like a poster from msx.pics of your own choise!
Day 7-16 POINTS: Sixteen fantastic basic colours
Day 8-32 POINTS: Thirtytwo kB of sample Ram in the Philips Music Module
Day 9-48 POINTS: Years past since the first visit to the moon
