    The time has come at long last, the Tempmas Season begins today! Father Tempmas has many gifts for Tempers young and old, provided they're willing to answer his riddles and complete his competitions! We're starting off with a good warm-up - a gaming quiz to test your gaming knowledge! See? All that trivia you've memorised over the years finally comes in handy! Today's prizes include digital credit or Amazon gift cards ($10, $15 and $25) for three randomly-drawn lucky Tempers who submit the correct answers by December 15th 9PM GMT!

    Listen now, and listen well! Participating in subsequent events will award you points, and points are pretty important - the more points you collect throughout the season the higher your likelyhood of winning the grand finale - a raffle with awesome prizes, including a game of your choice, digital credit for your console of preference and a brand-spanking new Nintendo Switch Lite! Answering all of today's quiz questions correctly nets the participants 1 point towards their tally! Patreon members are automatically entered into the final draw with 1 point and we encourage everyone to participate in all events to increase their chances! If you happen to win an event, fret not! You're not disqualified from the grand finale - every participant can win one small prize and still take part in the final draw!

    Now, without further ado, time for our questions!

    It's a nice idea but everyone can just look up answers on internet so it doesn't really have a point it would be way more fun in the 90's.

    Some of these are pretty tricky honestly. Wouldn't blame anyone for looking up the answers.
