NorDev: Just A Minute!

What: NorDev: Just A Minute!

When: Wednesday 4th of June 2014 @ 6.30pm

Norfolk Developers will be holding their own technical version of the popular radio 4 show Just a Minute. Four contestants will attempt speak on technical subjects for a minute without:

  • hesitation 
  • repetition 
  • deviation

A contestant scores a point for making a correct challenge against whomever is speaking, while the speaker gets a point if the challenge is deemed incorrect. However, if a witty interjection amuses the audience, even though it is not a correct challenge, both the challenger and speaker may gain a point, at the chairman's discretion. A player who makes a correct challenge takes over the subject for the remainder of the minute, or until he or she is correctly challenged. The person speaking when the 60 seconds expires also scores a point. An extra point is awarded when a panellist speaks for the entire minute without being challenged.

This is guaranteed to be an entertaining evening. We already have:
