Another in our series of Dingbats rounds, this pub quiz handout round features 10 images that use letters, words and symbols in a particular way to cryptically describe well known phrases. The aim for teams in your quiz is to work out what these phrases are.
The following image shows an example, where the correct answer of the phrase being described by the clue is "put on weight". This is because the word "put" is "on" the word "ton", which is an example of a weight.
All of the phrases are well known and as an added clue the number of words in each phrase is given. Some are fairly straightforward to make sure that all teams can get up and running on this round quickly, but there are some where a great deal of lateral thinking may be needed to arrive at the correct answer.
It is recommended that this round is used in your quiz as a handout round. You can find more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes on our handout rounds page.
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 418. If you would prefer to purchase full pub quiz packs complete with a handout round, a variety of other question and answer rounds, plus specially designed answer sheets for teams to write their answers on, then please visit our Complete Quizzes section.
