Mr. Simon Passey, take a bow. You've just won yourself a prize! (Send
your postal address to Eric to claim it...)

Well, yeah, this one's right too. But you only get one prize...

Hmm, another one right. But you still only get one prize! If someone
can come up with the exact wording for the answer, then they can have a
prize, since Simon cheated by answering more than one question.

And once again...correct but you only get one prize.

Hmm, I'm not sure either. Who asked the question? It was ... Robert
Ulrich. Robert? Is this correct?

That leaves Q26 and Q27 to go. Q26 was the one about the jigsaw puzzle
in issue #103, and Q27 was the one about how to play the game of "Groo".
