Cryptic Food

Cryptic Food

This pub handout round features a set of cryptic clues that teams have to try to decipher in order to come up with the names of 15 types of food. For example, the correct answer to the clue "Cheryl's legislation" is Coleslaw ("Cole's law").

There are a few cryptic clues that are fairly straightforward to get everyone started, but there are also some that are likely to take a fair bit of puzzling over, so this quiz round should keep teams entertained for some time.

It is recommended that these cryptic clues are used in a quiz as a handout round. For more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes click here

If you buy this handout round, we will give you access to pdf files you can download. Two of these will be for the main handout sheet - one as illustrated above, and one in a more plain format. The third sheet will contain the answers. 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.

Please note that this handout round also appears in Weekly Quiz 288. If you would prefer to purchase our pre-compiled full weekly quizzes, then click here, where you can find quizzes with a handout round, 2 rounds on general subjects, a specialist subject round, a connections round, an initial letter link round, and a stick or twist round, as well as professionally designed answer sheets and full instructions on how to run your quiz. If, however, you prefer to use your own format for your quizzes, then this handout round should help towards creating an entertaining and challenging quiz.
