667's Sixth Anniversary sees the return of Terribly Tricky Trivia!
Organised last year by Gigi, this contest will again contain 13 questions, one from each book in A Series of Unfortunate Events.
The questions will be posted one by one in this thread. Please do not post your answers here. At the end of contest, PM all your answers to Sixteen (username: volunteer16, subject line: "667 Trivia"). Sixteen will judge all entries for accuracy. Entrants that answer all 13 questions correctly will be placed into a winner's draw.
It is perfectly acceptable, and possibly necessary, that you consult your books throughout the contest. However, keep in mind that there can only be one winner, so sharing of answers is discouraged.
