2015 Boxed Red Games – The Starting Line


We’re a competitive bunch at Boxed Red HQ and we thoroughly enjoyed setting and achieving a series of challenges in 2014. This year, we’re going bigger and better to launch our very own competition – the 2015 Boxed Red Games!

Every month during 2015, the Strategic Management Team, Designers and Developers will compete for a single point in a unique challenge. At the end of the year, the team with the most points is crowned the winner!

The first challenge was the Big Fat Quiz of the Year, one question about every month during 2014. From royalty and famous sheep to sporting events and celebrity news, the teams went head to head answering questions and jogging their memories.

Janna’s lack of celebrity gossip left her flagging, John’s football knowledge kept him afloat but Cat’s morning browse of the Daily Mail website meant she stormed ahead and took the win with 10 out of a possible 12. Well done Cat!



If you want to see how you would have compared against the Boxed Red quizzers, here are the questions we asked!
