First of all there is a specially designed 2 page answer sheet to be printed out and distributed to each team at the start of the quiz for them to write their answers on as you read out questions. This also features a round by round scoresheet to make it easy to see how each team has performed after all the answers have been marked at the end of the quiz.
Secondly, there is the handout round, which again is to be printed out and distributed to each team at the start of the quiz for them to work on straight away, and carry on working on throughout the quiz and during any breaks you have.
Next there is a 4 page document featuring all the questions in rounds 2 to 9 for you to read out during the quiz, along with all the answers to these plus the answers to the handout round. This also features 2 tie-break questions to be used at the end of your quiz if two or more teams end up with the same score. There is also a "questions only" version of this in case the quiz master wants to take part in the quiz too and so doesn't want to see the answers before he or she has read out all of the questions.
Finally, there is a 4 page document with detailed round by round instructions and notes, plus general advice and recommendations on running a successful and entertaining quiz.
