Free Beer Contest iv

Me again … I’ll pass on another beer to the winner.

Keeping with Sarkys geographical theme there are 46 counties for England on RB.

I’ve lived in 11 of those so far in my life (anyone lived in more than this?)

Anyhow … name the 11 and the one with the most wins.

Will close this one on Monday.

No clues just whoever gets the most and a tie breaker will be lined up in the event of a draw.

Postage to the UK as before.

I have only lived in 3 myself (West😡 Yorkshire, Cheshire and West Midlands)

Leicestershire
Buckinghamshire
West Midlands
London
Berkshire
Bedfordshire
Surrey
East Sussex
West Sussex
Middlesex
Northamptonshire

You can add three months in the Falklands and four months in Suadi-Arabia to that list if you wish.

Tie breaker …

3 Folks got 7 out of 11 …

@fatphil @Fin and @SarkyNorthener

The 5 you all correctly got and eliminated were …

Greater London
Leicestershire
Bucks
Berks
Surrey

So of the other 6 you guessed only 2 were correct per person.

Tie break 1 … Each player lists 6 more counties (including ones you listed before of course as 2 were correct) and the one with the most from the new 6 wins.

Tie break 2 … in case of a tie again … which of these regions / counties have I lived in for the longest period of time?

Oxfordshire
Northants
Merseyside
Rutland
Cheshire
Lancashire

Old 6
West Midlands
Northamptonshire
Middlesex
West Sussex
East Sussex
Bedfordshire

New 6

Oxfordshire
Kent
Essex
Gloucestershire
Hampshire
Cambridgeshire

You have lived in Leicestershire the most.

No matter what happens, I shall consider the moral victory to be mine, as I managed my 5 using only 10 guesses rather than 11!

Right, as I’m an ex-pat, so not eligible to win the prize, I’m playing for @tdtm82 who gave up a day to take Marduk, Anna, and I around beery parts of London we’d only ever heard about.

Beds
Essex
Kent
Northants
Oxfordshire
West Midlands

You’ve lived in Essex the most.

Quick responses folks … @Fin I need that 2nd tie breaker !

Or…despite your PhD in Maths you can’t count for shit.

Nah, I’m just a cocky southerner who thought he could win even with a 1-guess handicap!
