Play our Swindon Town quiz walls

How many can you score by connecting the Town facts, dates and names? Try these quizzes by Alex Cooke and Ron Smith. Test yourself, then make your own

Your brain is one of the most complex and magnificent structures in existence. More powerful than any computer, more sophisticated than a robot in a top hat and smoking jacket. No, really.

But you’ve not used yours to advance the sum total of human knowledge or cure disease. Instead you’ve used this most precious of organs to remember a variety of facts about the players and achievements of a lower-league football club. Well done you! Because that sort of knowledge is going to be useful here.

We’ve put together a series of quiz walls, much like those in BBC Four smug-athon Only Connect. If you know how to play you can get on with them now, or read how to play below.

The Swindon Town puzzle walls. They get harder as they go along, like the players whose name they bear.

How to play

Here is the general idea: In three minutes, sort 16 clues into connected groups of four. Then tell us how they are connected.

Each group of four will have a link between them. It might be obvious, it might be obscure. It won’t be that they all played for Town, but it might be that they were signed by Danny Wilson. That isn’t one of the answers but you get the idea.

When you’ve guessed a correct group they will be highlighted and move up the screen. Once you’ve completed two groups, you will only have three more guesses to get the final two groups right.

Once you’ve got all four groups, the clock will stop and you will be asked to type in what connects them. Don’t worry about a long answer, just a few words will do. So if they all were signed by Danny Wilson, ‘ signed by Wilson’ should do.

If you’d like to make your own walls, why not add them to the comments section below for other people to test themselves. Good luck, you’ll need it. After all, Ron made number six and it is horrible.
