Review Of The Year 2017 Quiz 1
The first of two pub quizzes looking back on events from the year 2017, this quiz is particularly suitable for New Year's Eve parties and for quizzes run towards the end of 2017 or the start of 2018. It takes on a similar format to that of our weekly quizzes and is made up of the following rounds...
Round 1: Handout
This handout round is split into 3 sections. The first shows photos of 5 couples who got married in 2017, but with one person's face pixelated in each photo, and the aim being to name these people. The second section features photos of 5 famous people who died in 2017 and the aim is to name them. The final section features 5 extracts of lyrics and the aim is to name the songs, which were all hit singles in 2017, that these are taken from.
Round 2: In The News
10 questions on stories that made the headlines in 2017, such as "In July, which national park of England was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO?"
Round 3: Connections
2 sets of 4 questions on General Knowledge, with questions 5 and 10 asking for a 2017-related connection between the previous 4 answers.
Round 4: High Fives
2 questions relating to the year 2017, each of which requires 5 answers and where each individual answer is worth 1 point.
Round 5: Initial Letter Link
10 questions on events from the year 2017, where the answer to question 10 can be spelt out by rearranging the first letters of the first 9 answers.
Round 6: Winners and Losers
10 questions on theme of winners and losers in 2017, including "Who resigned as the leader of UKIP after coming third in the constituency of Boston and Skegness at the 2017 General Election?"
Round 7: Which Month?
10 questions asking teams to name the month of 2017 in which various events took place. For example, "In which month did a UK General Election take place?"
Round 8: Double Or Quits
10 questions on the year 2017, such as "Reading from the wrong envelope, which individual read out La La Land as the winner of the Best Picture Oscar at the Academy Awards ceremony held in 2017?". Each correct answer scores 2 points, but teams can leave answers blank as any wrong answers mean a score of zero for the round.
The pub quiz pack is made up of 6 separate files as follows...
First of all there is a professionally designed 2 page answer sheet that you can print out and hand out to each team at the start of the quiz for them to write their answers on as you read out questions. This also features a round by round scoresheet to make it easy to see how each team has performed after all the answers have been marked at the end of the quiz.
Secondly, there is the handout round, which again is to be printed out and handed out to teams at the start of the quiz for them to work on straight away, and carry on working on throughout the quiz and during any breaks you have.
Next there is a 6 page document with all of the questions in rounds 2 to 8 for you to read out, along with all the answers to these and the answers to the handout round. This also features 2 tie-break questions to be used at the end of your quiz if two or more teams end up with the same score, along with a set of substitute questions to help you tailor the difficulty level of your quiz.
There is also another version of this 6 page document, but where all of the answers have been removed. This may not be needed, but is included in case the quiz-master would like to take part in the quiz too.
Next, there is a 4 page sheet with instructions and advice on how to run a great quiz.
Finally, there is a quizmaster's scoresheet to help keep track of teams' scores.
