This quiz round features a list of 10 European capital cities (Kiev, Minsk, etc.), a list of the countries they are the capital of in a mixed order, and a list of facts about the cities (eg. "Birthplace of the composer Chopin") also in a mixed order. The aim of the round is to match up the countries and facts to the correct cities.
The facts here were carefully chosen so that for most it is unlikely to be obvious to which city they belong, but that it is obvious that there are a few cities on the list that it is very unlikely to belong to. This means that as well as testing people's knowledge on geography, it will also test their powers of deduction as they try to to match each fact with the correct city.
While the information in this round could be used to make up standard question and answer rounds (where the quiz-master asks questions aloud and the teams write the answers on blank answer sheets) it is recommended that this is used in a quiz as a handout round as it is likely to keep people occupied and entertained for a reasonable length of time.

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.
