Virtual Pub Quiz Pack - Christmas
This Christmas-themed pub quiz pack has been compiled for use in virtual pub quiz that you can run on a video conferencing service such as Zoom, or even just on email or a messaging service such as WhatsApp.
The rounds are as follows...
Round 1: Handout
This handout round is split into five sections. The first features the opening lines of four Christmas number one hit singles and the aim is to name these singles. The second features four anagrams to unscramble and come up with the names of pantomime characters. In the third section, the aim is to name four of Santa's reindeer from the points the individual letters in their names would score in Scrabble. The aim in the fourth section is to name four famous people who were born on Christmas Day from sets of categories they are listed under on Wikipedia. The final section features four "say what you see" picture clues, and the aim is to name the Christmas films with titles that best fit these clues.
Round 2: Christmas Music
Ten questions on Christmas music, such as "Which song featured in both the 2010 and 2018 John Lewis Christmas adverts?"
Round 3: Connections
Eight questions on General Knowledge, plus a final question worth two points that asks for a Christmas-themed connection between the first eight answers.
Round 4: Christmas Letter Link
Nine Christmas-themed questions, where the answer to the final question can be answered by rearranging the first letters of the first eight answers.
Round 5: Christmas TV Specials
Ten TV episode titles, along with the years these were broadcast (e.g. "The Christmas Lunch Incident; 1996"), with the aim being to name the TV shows they are Christmas special episodes of?
Round 6: Selection Box
Ten Christmas-themed questions, each with three possible answers to choose from such as "At what time in the afternoon of Christmas Day is the Queen's Christmas Message broadcast on TV?... a) one o'clock; b) two o'clock; or c) three o'clock?"
The pack is made up of four separate files as follows...
First of all there is the handout round. We recommend sending this to participants in advance of the quiz for them to work on in the build-up to the main quiz.
Next there is a four-page document with the answers to the handout round and all of the questions and answers to the other rounds. This also features two tie-break questions that you can use in the event of a tie. There is also another version of this document, but where all of the answers have been removed. This may not be needed, but is included in case the quiz-master would like to take part in the quiz too, or if you are planning to send the questions to participants (e.g. via email or WhatsApp) rather than read them out in a video-conferencing app.
Finally, there is a two-page document with advice on how to run a virtual pub quiz.
If you buy this quiz, we will give you access to pdf files you can download. These will contain all of the material described above. You probably already have everything you need to access and use these rounds in your quiz, but you might want to check our requirements page to make sure.
As well as being a bit shorter (and cheaper), our virtual pub quiz packs have a difficultly level that has been set slightly lower than with our standard quizzes. This is to take into account the fact that people are likely to be taking part on their own or in smaller groups than they would do if they were part of a pub quiz team with a wider span of knowledge. If the difficulty level is too low, or the quiz pack is not suitable in any other way, please let us know and we will provide a refund.
