Pac to the 80s @ Maggies

The national lottery currently has over 30 scratchcards and to celebrate the launch of the newest PAC MAN card I was invited along to an 80’s style pub quiz held at Maggie’s bar on Fulham road.

I do love a pub quiz, I spend most afternoons glued to the TV watching tipping point and The chase so I feel qualified to do my bit as part of a team, however the 80s are not really my specialist subject as I was a mere baby during that era and the OH, who accompanied me, was not too confident either.

Upon arrival to the bar, which was named after Mrs Thatcher herself, we were greeted by walls adorned with 80’s memorabilia and photographs of icons such as Debbie Harry and Boy George, a perfect setting for an 80’s event!



As we arrived a bit early we sat around the Rubik’s cube tables sipping on Pac-Man-Tini’s and nibbling wine gums and marshmallows while waiting to be put into teams.

We were paired up with two other couples including Tania and Mike from Larger family life, which was handy because they seemed to know the name of every song and artist just from listening to a snippet of the music! The quiz started with my favourite round which was guessing the person born in the 80s from their baby photo, that was about the extent of my 80’s knowledge. As well as answering lots of other questions we also had to draw an actors tinder profile and get up and lip sync one of the classics (I’m trying to forget that part)

While waiting for the results to roll in we were given a taste of Maggie’s menu Which included the most delicious prawns, baby sized burgers and chocolate brownies.


And then for the results…

We came joint first… if only we remembered that Shigeru Miyamoto had designed Super Mario then we wouldn’t have had to go for the tie breaker! Unfortunately we didn’t triumph this time but all was not lost…


The new PAC MAN scratchcard costs £2, gives you eight chances to win and there is a 1 in 4.23 overall chance of winning. I managed to get two lots of £2 on the same card so went away £4 richer!

What’s the most you have ever won on a scratchcard?
