Next Quiz: Thursday 9th April 2020, 20.15 (UK time)

We go again. I thought it went more smoothly this week, so we’ll keep the same format. We might have to revisit answer submissions if too many more teams join in, but we’ll see how it goes for now.

If you’ve played before, you just need the links to this week’s answer forms, which are at the bottom of the ‘answers’ section below. If you’re a first timer, here’s how to join in.

Step 1: Assemble your team

A pub quiz is about the team. People communicate with their teams via Zoom, House Party, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp or another messaging service. You’ll need one window (or screen) for that and another for the livestream at You can chat with me, or ask any questions you might have, using twitch’s chat function.

Step 2: twitch

I’ll be broadcasting via the aforementioned from around 20.15 UK time on Thursday 9th April. You don’t have to sign up to watch, but you do if you want to take part in the chat (which might be useful if you want any clarifications on questions). If we get a few more twitch followers there may also be a way of raising a bit of extra money for the Trussell Trust in a way that is completely free to you, so please do follow!

Step 3: Answers

1. Order of play

I strongly recommend you keep a paper copy of your answers so you can mark your own score if things go awry. You can download an answer sheet here: excel, word, pdf (the excel is the only one you can type into for reasons).

If you don’t have access to a printer, but do have access to some paper you can write on, the running order is this:

  • 1st half (all rounds 10 questions): Round 1: Picture Round; Round 2: Pot Luck; Round 3: Sports, Games and Pastimes; Round 4: Are You Smarter than an 11-year-old?
  • 2nd half (all rounds 10 questions): Round 5: TV, Books and Films; Round 6: Link Round; Round 7: Music Round

2. Submit your answers via Google forms

Nominate one member of your team to submit your answers to us for marking (link to this week’s forms at the end of this section). We will mark them and give you the answers and scores at the end of each half.

Answer all 10 questions for each round in the same box.

It is really helpful to us if you start each answer on a new line, and give the numbers of the questions for each answer – including questions you’ve chosen not to answer. Here’s an example:

Here are the links to this week’s forms for the first half, and for the second half. N.B. These are new forms with new links – we won’t see any answers submitted via last week’s forms.

Step 4: Picture Rounds

I’ll post this week’s picture round in a new post on this blog at around 19.00 (UK time) on Thursday. I’ll let you know via twitch and social media when it’s up.

Step 5: Enjoy!

If you enjoyed it last week, do tell your friends, and consider making a donation to the Trussell Trust if you’re in a position to. The more the merrier (until it becomes impossible to mark in a timely fashion).
