I'm running a quiz night at work on 3rd Nov, and I need help from all you HoPers out there...

I need to think of a marathon round - i.e a round of questions that can run for the whole quiz. In the past we've had a list of celeb's real names and they've had to work out the celeb name (e.g Reginald Kenneth Dwight is Elton John's real name (interesting fact for the day huh!), we've also asked them to name all the states in America.

Our quiz master at work has left with all the good ideas (b*stard! wink )and I'm stuck on what to do. It needs to be sort of general knowledge but not too easy.

Any ideas???

UCOF - I'll trade you some growing tips for some random ideas!! wink

*mwah*

Posted:[url=http://www.cpsc.co.uk/quiz/links.htm[this link to a quiz links page[/url] should help.

they have a few marathon rounds on that very website too:
tv anagrams
old english and welsh counties - in the right places too!

and then there's this website which has some good ideas for marathon rounds that involve a bit of thinking from the teams (and very little work from you on some of them cos they're just wordplay type things that you simply count up the possible scores when they finish).

good luck honey hug

That website is brilliant! I'll probably use the Monopoly one, or the london underground one.

Right - just got to sort out the music round and I'm all done!

Thanking you!!

Posted:The muppets one is good too.

As are the film invisibles.

Some of them are British though, so be careful. Like the 'football' list is actually all soccer teams. wink


Well, shall we go?
Yes, let's go.

Posted:My flatmate johnny is the quixmaster for most of edinburgh university.

What he does:

6 different rounds of ten questions, themed on sport, general knowledge, films, music (half questions, half identify this song), <a special round> and some other round I've forgotten... Plus two 'picture' rounds. Where you have a sheet of pictures and you have to identify the famous person in them.

Sometimes he has an uber maths question like: Take the number of rugby players in a scrum, minus the number of caps johnny wilkinson has and multiply it by steven redgraves total number of olympic medals. Take this number and tell me which team it corresponds to in the scottish premier division in alphabetical order. (One point for the number one point for the team)

There's always the good old: For each letter of the alphabet name a character of the simpons whose name starts with that letter.

It's normally a secret but the answer for question 6 of the final round is always 'badger'

hope this helps!
