    If you haven't got a ready-made team, we'll match you with others to make a team. This is a fun end-of-year quiz, in the bar. Although there is a science theme, science qualifications are not necessary. In previous years, the quiz has included rounds on time travel in the movies, the science of Santa, plants and animals associated with Xmas, and the IgNobel prizes.

    Mike Evans will describe his use of game theory to simulate how we may have evolved to be nice to each other. Evolution is often described as a means for enforcing competitive behaviour. Can evolution also explain extraordinary acts of altruism?
