Gee im pathetic... 300 please. If, somehow, I've managed to mess that up too, just choose a different value for me... I think I need glasses!

@The Hole Got Fixed I'll give you 200 for recording. 300 is taken.

What guitar model did George play during the rooftop concert?

@Ron Nasty 

Film for 900

Aha! Very tricksy little question! It may be expected that I suggest How I Won the War as the answer, however John appears looking very much like he would at the end of the decade, including glasses, during the airport scene in Help !.

@sir walter raleigh would've you said yes if Ron Nasty said How I Won The War or were you already aware of the Help ! scene.

If he had said How I Won The War I would have told him that he was incorrect.

It was a very clever question, @sir walter raleigh, and I think harder than the 1000 point question.

I'll take an 800 pointer next.

I'm not sure whether this question is still available: 200 songs/releases, please?

I'll give the questions and show the board when I get to my computer. I'm posting on mobile now. 

And Ron, its funny that you had so little trouble with my 1000 pointers involving dates because that is my weakness in any history. I just suck at dates, but what is hard for me isn't hard for others I guess.

I was disappointed by some of the 1000 pointers, especially the date John and Paul met, which for me would have been a 100 point question, maybe 200 points, as I consider that as basic knowledge.

Since it is now looking likely that I will be running the next game, unless I start fecking up very badly, it will be interesting to see what is made of the questions I have in mind.

Overall though, you have been running a very good game, and one which I have only felt the need to question one of the answers to so far.

I congratulate you on that.

And I was already proud I knew the answer to a 1000 pointer when the question about John's and Paul's meeting date was asked... oh well, it would have been too nice to believe anyway.a-hard-days-night-john-6

I agree with Ron Nasty though, you did an amazing job @sir walter raleigh, the question have been very creative and clear to understand and the categories are also well chosen! Thank you!apple01

@Martha songs/releases 200

what is the first song credited to 'George Harrison ?'

@Ron Nasty History for 800

Where was the house that John lived in from 1964-68 where he recorded Two Virgins and reportedly buried a lifetime supply of LSD in the garden, and what was the house called?

Don't Bother Me

Edit: I thought about this question again and am a little unsure how exactly you mean it. Because , if you meant 'which song is the first that was also credited to George Harrison among others', then it has to be In Spite Of All The Danger . But I first thought you meant solely credited to George.paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif

John lived on the St. George's Hill Estate in Weybridge, Surrey. The house was named Kenwood and is on Wood Drive. Ringo lived on the same estate at Sunny Heights, while George was just a short drive away at Kinfauns on the Claremont Estate in Esher.
