This pub quiz handout round features a story with 15 paragraphs where, in each paragraph, two words are blanked out. The aim for teams in your quiz is to complete the story by filling in the blanks so that each pair of words in a paragraph are anagrams of each other.
For example, the paragraph... "They visited a number of Italian cities on holiday and liked them all, but they really wished they had been able to spend a bit _ _ _ _ time in _ _ _ _"... can be completed using the anagram pair of "more" and "Rome".
There are 30 blanks in total, so 15 anagram pairs to be found, and while there are some that teams should be able to work out fairly easily, there are also some that aren't so obvious, so this quiz round should keep people in your quiz entertained for a while.
It is recommended that this story is used in a quiz as a handout round, and that a considerable amount of time is given so that all the teams in your quiz can enjoy this round fully. For more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes click here
