As promised last week, NCE can now reveal the winners of the 2004 Cleverclogs build-up question competition.
The competition has been run across all three Cleverclogs terms. It required competitors to answer 16 questions, each time using the previous answer to solve a new question.
After nine months of work, 45 individuals and teams got the correct answer: 106'. All went into the hat and the winners are:
1st: Alan Smith - wins a mini I-pod - the 'must have' Christmas present.
2nd: John Peake - wins £50 in Amazon vouchers.
3rd: Peter Morgan - wins £25 in Amazon vouchers Well done to everyone who took part.
The live grand final of Cleverclogs takes place in London on 15 December (NCE last week). A full report will feature in NCE in the new year.
