Stick Or Twist 50
This pub quiz pack features a set of 5 "stick or twist" rounds for you to incorporate into your pub quizzes.
Each quiz pack contains 5 high quality general knowledge questions of increasing difficulty and increasing points value. Question 1 is easy and worth 1 point, question 2 is slightly harder and worth 2 points, and so on until a very difficult question 5 is worth 5 points, meaning that there are a possible 15 points up for grabs in each round. After each question, teams have the choice to "stick" and put no more answers down for this round, because if they carry on and put a wrong answer down then they are "bust" and score nothing for the round!
Most of the questions in this round require a bit more thought than the average quiz question. An example round is shown below.
1. For 1 point... What is the total number of dots on a pair of dice?
2. For 2 points... The MMR vaccine is for immunisation against which three diseases?
Measles, Mumps and Rubella
3. For 3 points... Which two James Bond films have titles where the initial letters in them spell out valid English words?
The World Is Not Enough (Twine) and Die Another Day (Dad)
4. For 4 points... In the 1970s and 1980s, Michael Jackson had four solo top ten UK hits songs that contained a common boy's or girl's name in their title. Name these songs.
Billie Jean, Ben, Dirty Diana and Rockin' Robin
5. For 5 points... In terms of area, name 3 of the 4 largest landlocked countries in the world.
3 from... Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Chad and Niger
As you can see, with the increasing points and increasing difficulty of the questions, teams face an extra challenge after each question of whether to "stick" and safely score a few points or whether to "twist" and risk scoring nothing for the round, but have the chance of a very high score.
We recommend that you only use one of these rounds in each quiz you do and that the rest is made up of handout rounds, plus other question and answer rounds on general subjects, specialist subjects, general knowledge, etc. Also, because of the gambling nature of this type of round, we find that a Stick Or Twist round is best used towards the end of a pub quiz. So if a team feels they haven't done so well in earlier rounds they may be more inclined to gamble and if a team feels they have done well in earlier rounds they may be more inclined to play conservatively.
If you buy this quiz pack, we will give you access to download a pdf file. This contains all of the questions and answers for all of the rounds in this pack. You might also be interested in our free answer sheets for teams to write their answers on as you read the questions.
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.
