# ..Games! #

0:00:230:00:24

Hello and welcome to Gory Games with me, Dave Lamb,

0:00:240:00:26

him, Rattus Rattus, and him, the Blue Peter cat.

0:00:260:00:29

What? Woah. Oh.

0:00:290:00:30

DAVE LAUGHS DEVILISHLY

0:00:300:00:32

-Got you.

-Don't joke about the Blue Peter cat, you clown,

0:00:320:00:35

his studio's only next door.

0:00:350:00:37

This is the show that separates out the cool cats

0:00:370:00:41

from the scaredy rats.

0:00:410:00:42

Oh yes, I see what you did there.

0:00:420:00:44

As we test their knowledge of Horrible Histories with

0:00:440:00:46

quirky quizzes and gory games so let's meet the Horrible Historians.

0:00:460:00:50

Hi, I'm September.

0:00:500:00:51

Hi, I'm Sol.

0:00:510:00:53

-Hi, I'm Morgan.

-Fantastic.

0:00:530:00:55

There are the contestants.

0:00:550:00:56

By way of a little warm-up game today

0:00:560:00:58

I thought we'd go back to nature with a wholesome Georgian pastime.

0:00:580:01:02

-Really?

-Absolutely.

0:01:020:01:03

Just picture the scene.

0:01:030:01:06

It's 1764, we're in a tranquil Georgian farmyard.

0:01:060:01:10

A cockerel crows in the distance...

0:01:100:01:12

COCKEREL CROWS

0:01:120:01:14

Spring lambs chew the grass in a nearby field.

0:01:140:01:16

LAMBS BLEAT

0:01:160:01:18

Chickens peck lazily at the grain from the dusty ground.

0:01:180:01:22

CHICKENS CLUCK

0:01:220:01:23

And along come our lovely contestants

0:01:230:01:26

ready to play the favourite game of Georgian aristocrat

0:01:260:01:29

Lord Huntingdon.

0:01:290:01:30

Yes, it's time to play

0:01:300:01:33

Hunt The Hen! Simply chase the chicken round the studio

0:01:330:01:37

and the first to pull some feathers from his bottom wins.

0:01:370:01:39

Release the hen. Three, two, one...

0:01:390:01:41

No, no, no, not on my watch.

0:01:410:01:43

For heaven's sake, for once I would just like to start this show

0:01:430:01:48

without anything disgusting or upsetting happening.

0:01:480:01:50

Thank you.

0:01:540:01:56

Oh, brilliant.

0:01:560:01:57

I'm going to need a change of shirt now, aren't I?

0:01:570:01:59

And someone better find out where he got that chicken from.

0:01:590:02:03

I'm a naughty little rat.

0:02:030:02:05

Right, September, Sol, Morgan, you are playing to win Year Spheres.

0:02:050:02:10

Each Year Sphere contains a historical date and,

0:02:100:02:13

at the end of the show, your Year Sphere dates will be added up

0:02:130:02:16

with AD dates being added to your total and BC dates being subtracted

0:02:160:02:20

from it, so if these were your Year Spheres,

0:02:200:02:23

we'd add 1,215 then subtract 418 giving us a total of, Rattus?

0:02:230:02:27

Mm? Oh, I do know but I can't tell you.

0:02:270:02:30

-Why not?

-It's a secret.

-No, it isn't.

0:02:300:02:32

-It must be otherwise you'd know already.

-I do know already.

0:02:320:02:35

-Then what is it?

-It's 735.

0:02:350:02:37

All right, you've passed the test. It's 735.

0:02:370:02:41

OK, thank you.

0:02:410:02:42

At the end of the show the person with the highest year score

0:02:420:02:45

will win a unique historical prize.

0:02:450:02:47

As chosen by yours truly.

0:02:470:02:49

It's the kind of prize you couldn't even sell on eBay.

0:02:490:02:51

Let's get cracking and to find out who this round's about,

0:02:510:02:54

it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:02:540:02:56

It's the Awful Egyptians.

0:02:560:02:59

So four questions on the Awful Egyptians coming up now.

0:02:590:03:02

The person who gets the most right wins the first Year Sphere.

0:03:020:03:06

Your four Egyptian topics are:

0:03:060:03:08

So, September, you get to pick first in this round,

0:03:130:03:16

-what's it going to be?

-Gods.

0:03:160:03:17

Egyptian gods, let's hear that question.

0:03:170:03:20

The Egyptian god Sobek had the head of a crocodile

0:03:200:03:24

but what was he the god of?

0:03:240:03:26

Was it:

0:03:260:03:30

Let's see those answers now please.

0:03:300:03:33

OK, so Morgan and Sol agreeing on A, September out on her own with C.

0:03:330:03:36

-Let's find out what the answer is.

-The answer is C,

0:03:360:03:40

he was the Egyptian god of water, though

0:03:400:03:42

if there's one thing you don't want to find in your water

0:03:420:03:45

-it's a crocodile.

-Or a sewer rat.

0:03:450:03:48

Oi, I heard that!

0:03:480:03:49

-You were meant to. So, Sol, it's your turn to pick a topic.

-Mummies.

0:03:490:03:53

Mummies.

0:03:530:03:55

That is a prop question. This is a pot of mummy's dust.

0:03:550:04:00

Stuart king Charles II of England had a collection of mummies.

0:04:000:04:03

He used to gather the dust and powder that fell off them

0:04:030:04:06

but what did he do with it? Did he a) rub it into his skin,

0:04:060:04:10

b) sprinkle it on his food,

0:04:100:04:12

or c) throw it at people he didn't like?

0:04:120:04:15

Let's see those answers now please.

0:04:150:04:17

Everybody in total agreement on A and you're all right.

0:04:170:04:21

He did used to rub it into his skin,

0:04:210:04:24

he thought the greatness of the mummies would rub off on him.

0:04:240:04:27

That is sick, sick, sick, sick, sick, sick, sick,

0:04:270:04:31

sick and not in a good way. Huh.

0:04:310:04:34

-Morgan, your turn to pick a topic.

-Hieroglyphics, please.

0:04:340:04:37

Hieroglyphics, let's hear that question.

0:04:370:04:39

Ancient Egyptian scribes wrote things down in hieroglyphics

0:04:390:04:43

but what does "hieroglyphics" mean?

0:04:430:04:45

So is that A, B or C?

0:04:500:04:52

Everyone in total agreement. Let's see what the answer is.

0:04:520:04:57

The answer is C - "hieroglyphics" means "sacred engraving".

0:04:570:05:00

Is that sacred as in "Holy cow!

0:05:000:05:03

-"What on earth is that supposed to mean?"

-No, it isn't, Rattus.

-Oh.

0:05:030:05:06

OK, with the scores September, three, Sol, two and Morgan, two,

0:05:060:05:11

we have one question left in this round so it's all still to play for.

0:05:110:05:15

The final topic is pyramids. Here's the question.

0:05:150:05:18

Here's what I want to know.

0:05:180:05:20

Do you think that's A, B or C?

0:05:280:05:31

OK, the girls agreeing on B.

0:05:310:05:33

Sol out on his own with C.

0:05:330:05:35

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:05:350:05:37

The answer is C.

0:05:370:05:39

There are more than 100 pyramids in Egypt.

0:05:390:05:42

Yeah, there are more pyramids on Egyptian soil

0:05:420:05:45

than I've got flea bites on my bottom. Ha ha ha! But only just.

0:05:450:05:48

I was going to say, it must be close. And talking of close,

0:05:480:05:51

it's very close here. We finish that round with September and Sol tied.

0:05:510:05:55

Fingers on your buzzers - we're going to the tiebreak question.

0:05:550:05:58

Beginning with the letter H,

0:05:580:06:00

Egyptians believed that in the underworld,

0:06:000:06:02

to tell whether you'd led a good life

0:06:020:06:04

-which of your organs was weighed? Sol.

-Heart.

0:06:040:06:07

Heart is absolutely right so, Sol, you have won the quiz.

0:06:070:06:10

It's time to choose your Year Sphere from our trolley wally.

0:06:100:06:13

I'll have you know I'm not a trolley wally! I'm a sewage expert.

0:06:130:06:17

Ooh, so much better.

0:06:170:06:19

Be warned, Sol, one of these Year Spheres could contain

0:06:190:06:21

a Stone Age date worth a few million minus points.

0:06:210:06:24

Push, push, push, push, push, push, push, push,

0:06:240:06:27

push, push, push.

0:06:270:06:28

Hah, come on, Sol, come and choose your Year Sphere,

0:06:280:06:31

whichever one you want, preferably a shiny one.

0:06:310:06:33

-Is that the one you want?

-Yes.

-Good.

0:06:330:06:36

So winning the quiz means that Sol is automatically

0:06:360:06:38

through to play the Egyptian game but will he be alone

0:06:380:06:41

or will the others get to play, too? Let's find out.

0:06:410:06:44

It's an All Play Brainy Game

0:06:470:06:49

which means all of you must get down that time sewer.

0:06:490:06:52

-Lead off, Morgan.

-Whoo!

0:06:520:06:55

Excellent, off you go, Sol.

0:06:570:06:59

There you go, September.

0:07:000:07:03

When they died,

0:07:050:07:06

Pharaohs didn't really go for the small engraved gravestone thing.

0:07:060:07:09

They were more into the two million massive stone block thing.

0:07:090:07:13

It's time to play...

0:07:130:07:14

Your challenge, to build a pyramid.

0:07:160:07:19

Just work out which massive block goes where.

0:07:190:07:21

First to finish wins the Year Sphere. So, ready,

0:07:210:07:24

steady, get building! And here we go, then, with Pyramid Puzzle

0:07:240:07:27

and the idea here, Rattus,

0:07:270:07:30

is to get the big blocks on that base, isn't it?

0:07:300:07:32

That's right, the clue's in the title, Dave, they have to build...

0:07:320:07:35

-a pyramid.

-That's a nice big piece there from Sol.

0:07:350:07:39

September's looking a little small for me, though.

0:07:390:07:43

Of course, things can go very badly wrong on this game.

0:07:430:07:45

Particular if you thank you can squeeze a piece into a gap

0:07:450:07:49

that just isn't there. This is interesting.

0:07:490:07:51

September's realised her mistake and she's gone with the bigger bits.

0:07:510:07:56

Sol, basically picking all the bits up and throwing them around,

0:07:560:07:59

which is an interesting technique.

0:07:590:08:01

Morgan looks as though she's close to finishing her ground floor.

0:08:010:08:05

That looks good. Now that looks very good,

0:08:050:08:07

but wait a minute, if you look at the back closely,

0:08:070:08:10

I'm not sure that's right.

0:08:100:08:11

I think that Morgan may think she's got the base finished there,

0:08:110:08:15

but I'm not sure that she has. What do you think?

0:08:150:08:17

It's poking out over the edge and if your bottom layer

0:08:170:08:20

isn't parallel with the bottom edges of the plinth,

0:08:200:08:23

then that's it, we're onto a hiding to nothing.

0:08:230:08:26

You are and you've got to take into account the slanting

0:08:260:08:29

sides of the pyramid. I'm not sure she's done that,

0:08:290:08:31

so Morgan could be barking up the wrong tree.

0:08:310:08:34

September, wrestling with another huge piece.

0:08:340:08:37

Now, that is what you call a base.

0:08:370:08:39

She has completed the ground floor of her pyramid.

0:08:390:08:43

Sol is in all sorts of trouble here.

0:08:430:08:46

And so is Morgan.

0:08:460:08:47

Those jaggedy bits sticking out, if you look closely.

0:08:470:08:51

That, however, looks very encouraging and September, for me,

0:08:510:08:54

now is well on her way to winning this challenge, Rattus.

0:08:540:08:58

Sol still is struggling. There's a great big rift

0:08:580:09:01

right in the middle of his...

0:09:010:09:03

That's it, September's got a second layer!

0:09:030:09:05

You've called it correctly, my furry friend.

0:09:050:09:07

She's got that second layer. On she goes now for the third layer

0:09:070:09:10

and that's going to take not very long at all.

0:09:100:09:13

Shortly to be followed by the top piece, and there it is!

0:09:130:09:16

-There it is.

-It's a perfect pyramid from September.

0:09:160:09:19

She does a little leap, than a half spin. It's a victory celebration.

0:09:190:09:24

And Morgan's livid. Not really.

0:09:240:09:26

Welcome back, well played.

0:09:260:09:28

September, help yourself to a Year Sphere, why don't you.

0:09:280:09:31

-Morgan, how did you find it?

-I found it great fun.

-Did you? Excellent.

0:09:330:09:36

-You had a piece in the base, didn't you?

-It was the other one,

0:09:360:09:39

the one I put on top was the one on the bottom.

0:09:390:09:42

Good effort. Sol, how did you find it?

0:09:420:09:44

-Hard.

-Difficult, one word. Hard. But, September,

0:09:440:09:47

-what a magnificent pyramid you constructed, did you enjoy it?

-Yeah,

0:09:470:09:51

it was fun but I put all the small ones on,

0:09:510:09:53

I had to wipe it completely off and put the massive one on so...

0:09:530:09:56

Well done, because it meant that you won.

0:09:560:09:58

The Great Pyramid of Giza was one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

0:09:580:10:01

It was finished around 2560 BC,

0:10:010:10:04

and weighs about six and a half million tons.

0:10:040:10:08

So, are you one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Dave?

0:10:080:10:11

Where are you going with this?

0:10:110:10:12

Well, you're very old and heavy.

0:10:120:10:14

Just try to ignore him if you can. That's what I do.

0:10:140:10:18

Moving on. On to round two and to find out what's up next

0:10:180:10:21

it's over to the Gory Grid.

0:10:210:10:22

It's the Frightful First World War.

0:10:220:10:25

Four questions again,

0:10:250:10:27

here are your all-important World War One topics:

0:10:270:10:31

So, Sol, it's your turn to pick first, what do you fancy?

0:10:350:10:37

-Gas masks.

-Gas masks, let's hear that question.

0:10:370:10:40

True or false? No animals were given gas masks.

0:10:400:10:45

Let's see those answers now please. Well, look at that,

0:10:450:10:49

all three in complete agreement, everyone thinks it's false.

0:10:490:10:51

Are they all right or are they all wrong?

0:10:510:10:54

It's false, horses were key to the war effort

0:10:540:10:58

so special gas masks were made for them.

0:10:580:10:59

Morgan, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:10:590:11:02

-Um, dogs please.

-Dogs you say, let's hear that question.

0:11:020:11:06

True or false?

0:11:060:11:08

German Shepherds were renamed Alsatians as a result of the war.

0:11:080:11:13

So is that true or false?

0:11:130:11:14

All in total agreement once again, all thinking it's true this time.

0:11:160:11:19

Are they right or are they wrong?

0:11:190:11:22

It's true. We were at war with Germany

0:11:220:11:25

so they were renamed not to sound German.

0:11:250:11:27

I'm not very fond of Alsatians but they love me...for dinner.

0:11:270:11:32

Obviously not picky eaters.

0:11:320:11:34

-September, your turn to pick a topic.

-Hankies please.

0:11:340:11:38

Hankies.

0:11:380:11:39

That is a question from my esteemed colleague, Mr Rattus Rattus.

0:11:390:11:43

I thank you.

0:11:430:11:44

True or false?

0:11:440:11:47

If you were caught in a gas attack in World War I

0:11:470:11:49

without a gas mask, you should wee on your hankie,

0:11:490:11:52

tie it round your mouth and nose and breathe through it.

0:11:520:11:55

Hm, interesting. Let's see your answers now please.

0:11:550:11:58

Look at that, all in total agreement once again,

0:11:580:12:01

all going for true this time.

0:12:010:12:02

-What's the answer, Rattus?

-Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear,

0:12:020:12:06

it's true! Although what you did if you didn't need a wee I don't know!

0:12:060:12:10

Three points each,

0:12:100:12:11

one question remaining so this may well decide the round.

0:12:110:12:15

It's a question on bombs, let's hear what it is.

0:12:150:12:19

Is this true or false?

0:12:190:12:21

Let's see those answers now please.

0:12:270:12:30

Total, total agreement once again.

0:12:300:12:33

-Let's find out if they're right.

-It's true.

0:12:330:12:36

Yep, it's horrible but it's true. So look at that, we've ended up with

0:12:360:12:40

a three-way tie, everyone getting maximum points in that round.

0:12:400:12:43

That means it's fingers on buzzers.

0:12:430:12:46

Beginning with the letter F, name the medical condition

0:12:460:12:49

caused by the freezing cold in the trenches

0:12:490:12:51

that could make soldiers' toes drop off.

0:12:510:12:53

-ATCHOO!

-September?

0:12:530:12:54

-Frostbite.

-Frostbite is the right answer, congratulations,

0:12:540:12:57

help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:12:570:12:59

Very good, well done,

0:12:590:13:01

you qualify for the First World War game

0:13:010:13:04

but will you be alone or will everyone get to play too?

0:13:040:13:07

Let's find out.

0:13:070:13:08

It's a Single Player Brainy Game so, September,

0:13:120:13:16

off down the time sewer on your own.

0:13:160:13:18

Nowadays, most army regiments have an animal mascot,

0:13:210:13:25

for example, the Third Battalion of Royal Horrible Historians,

0:13:250:13:28

that's us, has a rat.

0:13:280:13:30

I'd salute but my arms are too short.

0:13:300:13:32

Dear oh dear. It's time to play...

0:13:320:13:35

Marvellous Mascots.

0:13:350:13:37

Your challenge today is to work out which five of these

0:13:370:13:40

are genuine World War One lucky mascots.

0:13:400:13:42

Choose five and move them to the real board then touch

0:13:420:13:45

the stuffed dog with a medal...

0:13:450:13:47

is that really the best we can do? Oh well.

0:13:470:13:49

..to find out how many you've got right. Keep trying new

0:13:490:13:51

combinations until you've got all five but you're against the clock!

0:13:510:13:55

And your time starts...now.

0:13:550:13:58

So, September attempts to play Marvellous Mascots,

0:13:580:14:01

and what's her first choice? Let's have a look.

0:14:010:14:04

That's Private Derby the Ram.

0:14:050:14:08

Some of these names are hilarious!

0:14:080:14:10

Corporal Charlie the cockroach!

0:14:100:14:13

He's actually quite a good flute player.

0:14:130:14:16

Bella and Bertha the cows go up next, er,

0:14:160:14:19

then Taffy, Taffy the goat.

0:14:190:14:21

Yeah, Taffy IV there actually.

0:14:210:14:23

Er, sounds a bit Welsh really.

0:14:230:14:25

-Or am I just stereotyping them?

-Yes, probably,

0:14:250:14:27

please don't upset the Welsh, Rattus,

0:14:270:14:30

we're in enough trouble as it is. Stubby the Dog up.

0:14:300:14:32

How's she got on?

0:14:320:14:34

Oh, she's got four,

0:14:340:14:36

what one will she take away? The Cockroach!

0:14:360:14:39

Off he goes, dragging his tiny little flute behind him.

0:14:390:14:42

Nancy the Springbok goes up there and it gives her the game.

0:14:420:14:47

What a celebration there! Textbook!

0:14:470:14:48

September, it was an absolute triumph,

0:14:520:14:54

help yourself to another Year Sphere, why don't you?

0:14:540:14:58

You were right, Blue the Kangaroo

0:14:580:15:00

and Corporal Charlie the Cockroach and were the made up ones.

0:15:000:15:03

The lucky mascots of the Scots Guards were two cows called

0:15:030:15:05

Bella and Bertha,

0:15:050:15:07

they were the only survivors from a herd that had been hit by a bomb.

0:15:070:15:10

So the Scots Guards got two mascots and all the mince they could eat!

0:15:100:15:15

-LAUGHS

-That's inappropriate.

0:15:150:15:17

-Yeah, sorry.

-OK.

0:15:170:15:19

Over to the Gory Grid to find out what's up next.

0:15:190:15:21

It's the Measly Middle Ages.

0:15:210:15:24

Four questions as always and here are your four Middle Ages topics:

0:15:240:15:28

So, Morgan, it's your turn to pick first this time,

0:15:330:15:37

-what's it going to be?

-1066 please.

-1066.

0:15:370:15:39

Is this true or false?

0:15:390:15:41

So is that true or is that false?

0:15:490:15:51

Interesting, the girls agreeing on false, Sol has gone for true.

0:15:530:15:56

Let's find out who's right.

0:15:560:15:57

It's true.

0:15:570:16:00

Yeah, he was called Ivo Taillefer

0:16:000:16:03

and he was William the Conqueror's jester.

0:16:030:16:05

He charged at the Saxons while juggling

0:16:050:16:07

and obviously he was killed immediately.

0:16:070:16:09

So I guess the Saxons had the last laugh after all.

0:16:090:16:12

What an idiot.

0:16:120:16:13

OK, September, it's your turn to pick a topic.

0:16:150:16:18

Can I have laws please?

0:16:180:16:20

Yes, you can...

0:16:200:16:22

And that is a prop question.

0:16:220:16:24

-Ooh!

-Rattus loves those prop questions.

0:16:240:16:27

OK, here is your question. True or false?

0:16:270:16:30

One Middle Ages method for seeing

0:16:300:16:32

if someone was guilty of a crime involved eating cake.

0:16:320:16:36

They've all gone for true.

0:16:370:16:39

That's absolutely right, it was true, the accused person

0:16:390:16:42

would eat a slice of cake, if they choked on it then they were guilty.

0:16:420:16:46

Rattus, did you steal some of this cake?

0:16:460:16:48

COUGHING AND SPLUTTERING

0:16:480:16:51

No further questions, your honour. Well done, everyone,

0:16:510:16:54

you got that absolutely right.

0:16:540:16:56

-It's your turn to pick a topic, Sol.

-Cures.

0:16:560:16:58

Cures it is, let's hear the question.

0:16:580:17:00

True or false?

0:17:000:17:03

One Middle Ages cure for the Black Death

0:17:030:17:05

involved jumping over a sewer.

0:17:050:17:07

Is that true or is that false?

0:17:070:17:09

Show me now and OK, Sol out on his own again with false,

0:17:090:17:13

the girls agreeing with true.

0:17:130:17:15

Let's find out what the answer is.

0:17:150:17:17

It's false but we thought one way to avoid catching the plague was

0:17:170:17:20

to sit in a sewer. You see,

0:17:200:17:22

the bad air of the plague is driven off by the worse air of the drains.

0:17:220:17:26

It makes perfect sense, doesn't it?

0:17:270:17:29

Yeah, right.

0:17:290:17:31

Well, to be fair, I spend much of my time sitting in the sewer

0:17:310:17:34

and I've never died of the Black Death.

0:17:340:17:36

Slight misunderstanding of how biology works there,

0:17:360:17:39

but no misunderstanding from Sol,

0:17:390:17:41

even with one question left in this round

0:17:410:17:44

it's too late for the others, Sol has won.

0:17:440:17:46

So, Sol, help yourself to another Year Sphere.

0:17:460:17:49

Sol is through to play the Middle Ages game

0:17:510:17:53

but will it be just him or will everyone else be coming along too?

0:17:530:17:56

Let's find out.

0:17:560:17:58

It's an All Play Gory Game,

0:18:020:18:04

so it's off down the time sewer with the lot of you.

0:18:040:18:07

-Lead off, Morgan.

-See you!

-See you.

0:18:070:18:09

-Toodlepip!

-Toodlepip, Sol.

0:18:090:18:12

-Au revoir!

-Au revoir!

0:18:120:18:15

King William the Conqueror

0:18:170:18:18

came to power after the gory Battle of Hastings,

0:18:180:18:20

and the funeral that marked the end of his reign was no less gory.

0:18:200:18:24

His servants stole all his jewels, his body was so bloated

0:18:240:18:27

it exploded, and the church caught fire.

0:18:270:18:30

It's time to play...

0:18:300:18:31

Yuckaroo.

0:18:310:18:33

You are William's servants and your challenge is to take as much

0:18:330:18:36

of the old tyrant's treasure as possible and put it in your chest.

0:18:360:18:40

All the treasure is colour coded and you must only take your own colour.

0:18:400:18:44

Whoever collects the most pieces wins the Year Sphere

0:18:440:18:47

and you'd better be quick because the church

0:18:470:18:50

is going to burn down and your time starts now.

0:18:500:18:53

Here we go with Yuckaroo - the colour-coded treasure challenge

0:18:530:18:56

that ends in gooiness. Look, September off the mark,

0:18:560:19:02

so, too, is Sol. Lovely. And Morgan away.

0:19:020:19:06

-They're good thieves.

-They certainly are.

-Yeah, good to see three

0:19:060:19:09

such excellent thieves at the top of their game,

0:19:090:19:13

and all working away feverishly on William the Conqueror's treasure.

0:19:130:19:17

All his treasure stolen by his servants at his funeral

0:19:170:19:20

and the other thing to note was that his guts exploded half way through!

0:19:200:19:24

I've got a feeling that might be about to happen here but...

0:19:240:19:27

I'm rather hoping so, Dave.

0:19:270:19:29

..I don't think they know about it which is excellent.

0:19:290:19:31

Oh, dear me, Sol has put one in his chest there

0:19:310:19:34

that wasn't brown so that won't count.

0:19:340:19:36

Obviously stealing and nicking things is pretty bad on its own

0:19:360:19:41

but to do it from a dead man just seems downright disrespectful.

0:19:410:19:45

Yes, even though he was a bit of a foul bully he didn't deserve this,

0:19:450:19:48

no one deserves this, this is naughty behaviour.

0:19:480:19:51

-Oh!

-There go his guts! He's exploded and that has taken Morgan

0:19:530:19:55

on the arm and I think Sol got covered in it

0:19:550:19:57

but he barely looked up!

0:19:570:19:59

It's like he gets covered in guts every day of the week.

0:19:590:20:03

It's very close here, September and Morgan very close

0:20:030:20:07

and there's only two points separating all of them.

0:20:070:20:10

-GONG

-Very exciting with 30 seconds left.

0:20:100:20:14

Now, September's put the wrong stuff in her box

0:20:140:20:17

and that won't count. So Morgan's drawn level.

0:20:170:20:19

Morgan's doing very well, gathering a fair old booty

0:20:190:20:22

but she's also being very selective,

0:20:220:20:25

having a look at what she fancies the look of.

0:20:250:20:28

I think that's a mistake, you've just got to take it all.

0:20:280:20:31

The church is now very much on fire - they've got to get

0:20:310:20:34

out of there quickly! September drawing level

0:20:340:20:39

and that could be absolutely crucial and it is! September and Morgan

0:20:390:20:44

have tied on six pieces each

0:20:440:20:47

and that means they'll both get a Year Sphere.

0:20:470:20:50

Back behind your podiums.

0:20:520:20:54

-How did you find that, Morgan?

-I found it really fun.

0:20:540:20:56

Have you done any thieving, Sol?

0:20:560:20:58

-Oh yeah...

-Yeah?

-From my sister, yeah.

0:20:580:21:00

-She know about that yet?

-Don't think so.

0:21:000:21:02

She does now! So, never mind.

0:21:020:21:04

How did you find that, September?

0:21:040:21:06

Quite easy cos I didn't get covered in any gunge so...

0:21:060:21:09

You withdrew for that bit!

0:21:090:21:12

Well done, everyone. September,

0:21:120:21:13

if you could choose yours for me first please.

0:21:130:21:17

And, Morgan, help yourself to a Year Sphere.

0:21:170:21:21

Lovely. Everyone has a Year Sphere.

0:21:210:21:23

Time for the final round,

0:21:230:21:24

over to the Gory Grid one last time to find out what we've got.

0:21:240:21:28

It's the Vicious Vikings.

0:21:280:21:30

No quirky quiz in our final round,

0:21:300:21:32

it's straight to our big All Play Viking End Game

0:21:320:21:34

and it is a scary one.

0:21:340:21:36

So, everyone, get down that Time Sewer!

0:21:360:21:40

-See ya!

-See ya.

0:21:400:21:43

-Bye!

-Bye.

0:21:430:21:45

-Auf Wiedersein!

-Auf Wiedersein.

0:21:450:21:49

A multi-linguist!

0:21:490:21:50

Picture the scene: it's June 8th, 793 AD

0:21:500:21:54

and another peaceful day begins

0:21:540:21:57

in the tranquil island monastery of Lindisfarne.

0:21:570:21:59

Suddenly, an unusual sound breaks the silence.

0:21:590:22:01

It's the sound of a Viking chopping a monk in two.

0:22:010:22:05

It's time to play...

0:22:050:22:06

Viking Attack.

0:22:060:22:09

You are defenceless monks.

0:22:090:22:10

Your only hope of survival is that the Vikings won't find you

0:22:100:22:13

so best not step on a squeaky floorboard.

0:22:130:22:16

Your challenge is to find the one squeak-free path.

0:22:160:22:19

Every time you step on a squeaky wooden panel

0:22:190:22:21

you'll be sent back to the start.

0:22:210:22:22

Reach the end of the path and you are faced with two doors.

0:22:220:22:26

Behind one is freedom. Behind the other is...

0:22:260:22:29

Rarrr!

0:22:290:22:32

I was portraying a Viking. Find him,

0:22:320:22:36

and you have to start again.

0:22:360:22:37

The first person to escape wins the Year Sphere.

0:22:370:22:39

Ready, steady, shh.

0:22:390:22:43

Here we go, then, and what an appalling start,

0:22:430:22:46

everybody's squeaked already!

0:22:460:22:48

That's woken up the monks,

0:22:480:22:49

there they are, our three custodian monks who stand at the back

0:22:490:22:53

to ensure fair play at all times

0:22:530:22:55

and also because they have absolutely nothing better to do.

0:22:550:23:01

SQUEAK

0:23:010:23:03

Oh, Sol gets that familiar sinking feeling

0:23:030:23:06

and that means he must return to the start.

0:23:060:23:08

Oh, that was a lovely cross-legged walk there from Morgan.

0:23:080:23:12

September, really thinking long and hard about this one

0:23:120:23:17

and Morgan is right at the end already. Oh no!

0:23:170:23:19

There's the frustration in a nutshell,

0:23:190:23:22

she's gone right back to start again.

0:23:220:23:24

But look, she's back up quickly, all three on the charge...

0:23:260:23:31

Morgan down, Sol down, but September wasn't down. That is peculiar!

0:23:310:23:35

September didn't need to go back, extraordinary.

0:23:350:23:39

September is very close, look how close she is here.

0:23:390:23:43

She just needs a solid one... Oh! She tried! She tried!

0:23:430:23:49

She thought, if I skip across it, it won't register,

0:23:520:23:56

but it will! Cheeky indeed but they all know their paths now.

0:23:560:24:00

It's really a case of who can remember best.

0:24:000:24:03

She's over! Now, which door is it? Is it freedom or the Viking?

0:24:030:24:07

-Oh, it's the Viking.

-Oh, it's a Viking.

-Back to the beginning.

0:24:070:24:10

You'd better get back, September,

0:24:100:24:12

before he chops some part of you off and Sol has to

0:24:120:24:15

go back as well which leaves Morgan our front runner, can she get there?

0:24:150:24:19

Can she get there? But September's coming back...

0:24:190:24:23

Surely she'll choose the right door? And she does!

0:24:230:24:25

Fist pump, double turn,

0:24:250:24:27

perfect celebrating at the end of a perfect game.

0:24:270:24:30

And Morgan knows how close that was!

0:24:300:24:32

Very well done, that was very exciting.

0:24:320:24:35

September, help yourself to another Year Sphere, of course.

0:24:350:24:38

Superb. September, how did you find that?

0:24:380:24:42

I found it really difficult because, I mean,

0:24:420:24:45

my and Morgan's squeaks were quite similar,

0:24:450:24:48

so I kept going back on hers and she kept going back on mine

0:24:480:24:50

-but it was fun in the end.

-Well done.

0:24:500:24:52

Monks spent much of their time copying out books by hand.

0:24:520:24:55

Monasteries were like huge libraries crammed full of hundreds of books.

0:24:550:24:59

But not one on how to defend yourself in the event

0:24:590:25:02

of a Viking attack, huh, go figure.

0:25:020:25:04

Time to count up those Year Spheres and, remember,

0:25:040:25:07

AD years are added to your total and BC years are subtracted from it.

0:25:070:25:13

So despite the fact that you've only got one, Morgan,

0:25:130:25:15

you could still win this quite easily.

0:25:150:25:18

OK, let's have a look at your Year Spheres then, September.

0:25:180:25:20

Start off with that first one.

0:25:200:25:23

1453 AD, the end of the Hundred Years War.

0:25:230:25:27

1852 AD, London's first flushing loo opened to the public.

0:25:300:25:34

Let's see the third.

0:25:340:25:37

1170 AD, Archbishop Thomas Becket murdered. The fourth?

0:25:370:25:42

1789 AD, start of the French Revolution!

0:25:450:25:48

It's all down to this last fifth sphere.

0:25:480:25:52

79 AD, the Colosseum opened in Rome.

0:25:520:25:55

That means you have ended up with a mahoosive total of 6,343.

0:25:550:26:02

Sol, it's going to be tricky to beat that.

0:26:020:26:05

Let's have a look at that first one.

0:26:050:26:08

Well, you started off badly in your quest for 6,000 points,

0:26:080:26:11

you've got 9,000 BC -

0:26:110:26:12

Stone Age man started using bows and arrows round about then.

0:26:120:26:16

Let's have a look at the second one.

0:26:160:26:19

1666 AD, the Great Fire of London, of course,

0:26:190:26:21

and that means that you have ended up with a score of minus 7,334.

0:26:210:26:28

Morgan, one Year Sphere,

it's going to be tough to beat September.

0:26:300:26:32

Oh! It's 776 BC, the first ever Ancient Olympics that year.

0:26:340:26:39

Well, that is no consolation whatsoever.

0:26:390:26:43

All that means that today's winner, with 6,343 points,

0:26:430:26:46

is September who goes home with our star prize

0:26:460:26:50

and it really is the best prize that Rattus could possibly find

0:26:500:26:53

which gives you some idea of how little effort he puts

0:26:530:26:56

into this task. What have you got, my furry friend?

0:26:560:26:58

Dave, today's prize just oozes class, ha-ha!

0:26:580:27:01

Well, actually it just oozes, cos it's what Saxon peasants used

0:27:010:27:06

to plaster their walls. It's pure pig poo!

0:27:060:27:11

That's it, is it? Just a load of pig poop.

0:27:110:27:14

-It's not just pig poop.

-But what else is there?

0:27:140:27:16

-I'm throwing in the bucket.

-Ooh, unbelievable.

0:27:160:27:19

Well, con-rat-ulations, September.

0:27:190:27:22

-There you go, well done.

-Thank you.

0:27:220:27:24

Sorry it's, er... Well, sorry it's a bucket of poo.

0:27:240:27:27

It just remains for me to say thanks to our champion September,

0:27:270:27:31

thanks to our runners up, Sol and Morgan,

0:27:310:27:33

and no thanks whatsoever to Rattus.

0:27:330:27:34

-You're missing me already!

-I'm not.

0:27:340:27:37

You've been watching Gory Games. Goodbye!

0:27:370:27:40

# Was that show messy enough for you

0:27:410:27:43

# Or would you have preferred a little more poo?

0:27:430:27:47

# Have you had your fill of blood guts and gore

0:27:470:27:51

# Or have we left you still wanting more?

0:27:510:27:54

# Well, keep watching we'll be back again

0:27:540:27:56

# With Horrible Histories: Gory Games

0:27:560:27:59

# Horrible Histories: Gory...

0:27:590:28:01

# Games! #

0:28:010:28:02

Dave decides Rattus has really gone too far! There is a hen in the Quiz Dome. What was he thinking? Actually he was not thinking! There are more pyramids to construct, a tomb to raid and some vikings to avoid at the end of a very squeaky wooden path.
