Another in our series of `Dingbats` style rounds, this pub quiz handout round features 10 images that use letters, words and symbols in a particular way to 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 of pictogram, where the correct answer of the phrase being described by the pictogram is "put on weight". This is arrived at from the word "put" being "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 these pictograms are used in a quiz as a handout round. For more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them click here

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.
