Pub Quiz ? Why are quizzes so popular?

Why are pub quizzes so popular? Or for that matter any type of quiz.

You can host a quiz at home for your family and or guests and keep everyone entertained for hours. Parties for adults or kids can be enhanced by hosting a quiz to keep your guests entertained.

Have you ever been to a party without a theme? There is only so much conversation before the party becomes a bore and guests start leaving early. A party needs a theme that involves everyone to keep it alive.

It's the same at your local pub. Yes it's nice to have a quiet relaxing evening once in a while but once or twice a week you can liven up the atmosphere with a well planned quiz night.

In addition to the entertainment value of a quiz night it's also brilliant brain fodder. By taking part in a quiz you are keeping your brain active and possibly keeping the aging process at bay. So it's good for your health too. What a bonus.

How to organize your quiz.

  • First decide on a suitable date and venue. This may be at your home or your local pub or club.

  •  Give plenty of notice, this gives you time to get your questions and answers prepared and gives the contestants time to re-arrange their diaries if necessary.

  • Decide on the format of your quiz. There are many formats including simple question and answer quizzes, bingo quizzes and multiple choice quizzes - Is the answer A, B or C for example.

  • Prepare your answer sheets depending on which format you have decided to use. Two sheets simply numbered one to twenty would suffice for a quiz of two twenty question rounds. A bingo quiz would require a table of twenty five squares ? five by five. Small prizes could be offered for a line across a line down and for all four corners and the centre square. Plus a prize for answering all the questions.

  • Decide what to offer as prizes. For a children's quiz you could offer sweets or small gifts. For the adults you could offer cash or drinks from the bar. To cover the cost you can sell raffle tickets or charge an entrance

Finding your questions.

There are many ways to find your questions and answers for your quiz. Most book shops have quiz books for sale. You will also find many websites offering questions and answers. Some will be free and some you will have to pay for.

Do include local interest questions. You will find these very popular and can be researched from your local newspaper.

National interest questions are also popular and of course you can make your own questions simply by reading national newspapers and magazines.

One source I use a lot is local charity shops. Many charity shops have quiz books for sale at bargain prices. So help your self to some great books and support your favourite charity at the same time.
