Downton Abbey Game


(THAT GIF.)

I was going to do a big, huge, blast-the-organs game for this week, but time dried up completely and I was left with one little snippy evening to prepare some sort of game jollification, so this will have to do. It's a very random sort of game; something different to test you on for each question. Rack your brains and let the fun start! Let's see how much of a Downton Abbey genius you actually really and truly are!

(How to play: Comment with your answers and don't cheat by googling stuff. Let's all be fair and square, right-ho?)

1. Name three Downton Abbey redheads.
2. Which two ladies said the following lines? A: What shall I wear? B: Clothes.
3. Why is Lady Rose wearing a servants outfit here?! Explain it to ME.


4. Name three characters that cut their hair into bobs.
5. What is Cora's Mother's first (Christian) name?
6. What did the Dowager Countess say during Daisy and William Mason's wedding?
7. Who does this beautiful jacket/dress belong to?

(excuse the fuzziness of the picture) (ugh)

8. Name three of Lady Rose's 'lovers.' :-P
9. The Dowager Countess once joked (wait, she was perfectly serious) that Americans lived in: a) treehuts b) wigwams c) plantations d) bear-skin huts
10. Why does Mr Bates walk with a cane?
11. What is the name of Lord Granthams' dog? (the first dog)
12. Who does this fantabulous hat belong to?

(excuse the fuzziness, once again) (ugh)

13. Name three DA characters whose names start with M (last names are also allowed; you're welcome.)
14. Who did the Dowager Countess tell to stop whining and find something to do?
15. Who said the following quote? "You know the trouble with you lot? You are in love with the wrong people."


I'll now leave you with that gorgeous picture of dresses and beads and Downton Abbey pastel colours. The Answers will be coming when the DA week is over; so pour in those answers!

  1. I haven't actually watched Downton Abbey, so I apologize in advance for my vague answers :)

    #3 – She’s sneaking out to meet some servant guy that she met at a servant’s-night-out.

    #14 – Edith.

    2. No idea. I'll go with Edith and Mary.
    3. Okay, I can't remember his name, but her friend who she met(was he from a band or was that her other friend?) and told she was a servant at Downton came to visit her at there and she had to play the part so he didn't know she'd lied.
    4. Lady Sibyl, Lady Edith, ??
    6. Something about having something in her eye? Or did she just flat out admit that she was crying? Wait, did she cry at all? I'm confused. xD

  5. I can really only answer a few of these.....
    4. Mary, Edith, and Daisy all got bobs, I think....
    11. I know it is lurking somewhere in the back of my mind. :( About all I can get is that it was some Greek or Roman goddess name.
    13. Mary, Molesly (I am not sure how it is spelled), Marigold.

    Oh dear, that is all I know.

    5.Martha
    6.something witty, I'm sure, but I have no idea!
    7.aunt Rosamund, perhaps?
    8. That guy she danced with, that other guy she danced with, and another guy she danced with! ;) can't be more specific than that!

  7. 1. Name three Downton Abbey redheads. // Edith, Gwen, and Alfred.
    2. Which two ladies said the following lines? A: What shall I wear? B: Clothes. // Why do I not remember this? Agh. It sounds like a snarky snippet between Edith and Mary though.
    3. Why is Lady Rose wearing a servants outfit here?! Explain it to ME. // She went to a party/dance and neglected to tell anyone that she was a Lady, so she Met a Guy and he showed up at Downton because, oh yeah, she'd told him she was a maid. And now he likes her. Oops. (She owes Anna big-time, y'all.)
    4. Name three characters that cut their hair into bobs. // Sybil, Mary, and... AH WHO WAS IT. Edith. I'm going with Edith.
    5. What is Cora's Mother's first (Christian) name? // Martha.
    6. What did the Dowager Countess say during Daisy and William Mason's wedding? // I don't remember, but I do remember that it was lovely and kind.
    7. Who does this beautiful jacket/dress belong to? // Either Edith or Rose. I'm leaning towards Rose.
    8. Name three of Lady Rose's 'lovers.' :-P // Jack Ross the singer, That Guy From the Dance, and Atticus. (I like Atticus. He's sweet.)
    9. The Dowager Countess once joked (wait, she was perfectly serious) that Americans lived in: a) treehuts b) wigwams c) plantations d) bear-skin huts // B. :P (That awkward moment when you ARE an American.)
    10. Why does Mr Bates walk with a cane? // He was injured while saving Robert's life (I believe that's what it was?) during the South African War, so he needs the cane to walk. (Mr. Bates is an amazing human like that.) (Also, excruciatingly painful leg correctors are a no-no.)
    11. What is the name of Lord Granthams' dog? (the first dog) // Isis.
    12. Who does this fantabulous hat belong to? // It looks like a Cora-hat? But I don't think it's hers. Rose, maybe? (I have a better idea of whose hat it WOULDN'T be than whose it actually is. :P)
    13. Name three DA characters whose names start with M (last names are also allowed; you're welcome.) // Mary, Matthew, Martha Levinson, Moseley, William Mason, Mr. Mason...
    14. Who did the Dowager Countess tell to stop whining and find something to do? // Edith. (And guess what? She did.)
    15. Who said the following quote? "You know the trouble with you lot? You are in love with the wrong people." // Dear Mrs. Patmore!

    This was quite fun! :)
    (And the picture of the beads and pastels and Downton ladies is indeed gorgeous.)

  8. Basically, this is for your and my amusement, Naomi. ;D (Don't bother about scoring me, unless I do unbelievably alright. Which I doubt. Haha.)

    1. Edith is a red head, isn't she? Ooone...twothree. Oh, would you count Daisy (I thiiink her name was Daisy) the maid, as red head? Maybe not.

    2.Mary said "What shall I wear" and Edith retorted "Clothes". Hahaha.

    3.Because Lady Rose is secretly Cinderella and everyone KNOWS Cinderella wears a maid's clothes! (Come, come, wasn't that a good explanation? XD)

    4.Mary had her hair in a bob, Edith had a bob length hair and I may as well guess their mother did, too. (Unless she's dead. Then she wouldn't have.)

    5.I don't even know who Cora is, but let's guess her mother's name is Elizabeth! There's always got to be one. ;)

    6. The Dowager Countess said something very witty, I know that much.

    7. Err... no idea. Rose? (No, not really. I just couldn't think of another name besides Mary, Edith or Sybil.)

    8. Tom, Dick and Harry. Ha. No, no, let me TRY... Phillip, Edward and George. *snort*

    9. "Americans live in wigwams." Duh.

    10. One leg is shorter than the other, or he got wounded in battle or had a tragic accident. One of dem three. (Let's go with the second, if we must.)

    11. Poochy. Ahahaha.

    12. Maybe Mary?

    13. Mary, Matthew... Mrs. Crawley? :P Erm... is there a Margaret? Let's hope so.

    14. She totally said that to Edith. Oh yes.

    15. Mr. Bates said that. Because why not.

    Well, I sure had a giggle out of this. :D

    3. Because one of Rose's 'lovers' thought she was a servant and she liked to keep it that way so he wouldn't leave her because she was a lady and he just ordinary, common. I think it was something like that.

  12. Yay! It's a DA game! :D

    1. Lady Rosamund, Ethel, Gwen
    2. A - Mrs. Patmore and B - Mrs. Hughes?
    3. Because Rose had been a flirt at a dance hall and someone fell for her and found her at Downton so she disguised herself so he wouldn't know she was a "lady" and she broke his heart practically and told Jimmy that she would be his friend forever if he never mentioned the incident. Was that explanation sufficient? :)

    5. Um, I don't know. :(
    6. That she had allergies or the room was dusty or something to that affect.
    7. Lady Edith? Dunno.

    9. Wigwams
    10. War wound from when he was serving with Robert (and because it lends an air of sympathy to his character :) )
    11. Isis
    12. Cora?
    13. Moseley, Mr. Mason, William Mason
    14. Edith
    15. Mrs. Patmore (she had a much better perspective than the lovesick youngsters had)
