Cryptic Seventies Number Ones
This pub quiz handout round features 15 cryptic clues for teams to try to decipher and come up with the titles of hit singles that reached number one in the UK singles charts in the 1970s. For example, the correct answer to "Sprinkle fluid over toilet" is Waterloo ("water loo").
A few of the clues are fairly straightforward to ensure that teams in your quiz can get up and running on this round without too much trouble, however there are also some tricky clues that are likely to take a fair bit of puzzling over before teams arrive at the correct answer.
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
