Arranging a quiz night, whether it's for a group of
friends at home; a family quiz or for the local pub quiz etc., can be quite a task
if you are not used to it!
Here are some tips to make it easier for you:
- First of all arrange the venue. Then send out
invitations and or put up posters advertising the event. You want to
ensure everyone knows about your quiz night.
- Decide how many questions you are going to ask.
40 is about right, especially for the first time. These can be arranged
into two sets of 20 questions. Give the answers and scores for the first
set before asking the next 20. Have a couple of 'Tie Breakers'
handy in case more than one person/group have the same total.
- Tie Breakers - used to decide a winner where
two teams or more end with the same score. These should be quite difficult, such
as, 'How far is it from London to Argentina' or something along those
lines. The winner is the team who gets the nearest answer.
- Be sure to check your questions and answers
carefully - I once used a question from a book and the book stated
the answer in kilometres when it should have been in miles! - Check and
double check to ensure you don't get complaints.
- When compiling your questions, there are lots of
resources, such as quiz books; newspapers (topical questions are
always popular) encyclopædias; dictionaries and of course the Internet.
- Print out some answer sheets: with headings
such as: Round 1, 1 - 20; Round 2, 21 - 40 and have a supply of scrap
paper available, so the teams can write down questions they may have to
- Prizes don't have to be expensive. At our club
for example, we charge £1 per team plus we sell a 'football card'
(available from most printers shops) paying £15 to the football card
winner and adding the remaining £15 to the quiz prize money. Everyone
gets their £1 back and the remaining money is given in descending
amounts, depending what the 'pot' holds, to the first 3 or 4 places. You
could offer free entry and run a raffle to generate a 'pot' if you like.
