The Maxim Christmas Competition

And the winner is...

Thanks to everyone who entered this year’s Christmas competition.

Using LEGO Minifigures, we created 10 scenes which represent a story that made the UK news during 2016.

Just 10 people guessed all the answers correctly; they were entered into a draw and a winner picked at random using an online tool.

Congratulations to John Humphreys of Shepherd Neame – the giant Big Ben LEGO set is on its way to you.

All 10 images and the answers are below.

Team GB won 27 gold medals at the Rio Olympics (they’re pictured, albeit in chocolate form), coming second in the medal table. Many people named the figures as Andy Murray and Adam Peaty, although that wasn’t necessary to score a point.
The Maxim Christmas Quiz - Question 8
Answers included ‘Mass narcolepsy outbreak’ and an ‘Anonymous masked march in Whitehall’ but the correct one was Spencer Tunick’s ‘Sea of Hull’ project in which thousands of people stripped naked, were painted blue and then photographed.
