The first of two pub quizzes looking back on events from the year 2018, this quiz is particularly suitable for New Year's Eve parties and for quizzes run towards the end of 2018 or near the start of 2019. It takes on a similar format to that of our weekly quizzes and is made up of the following rounds...

This picture round features photos of 15 famous people who died in 2018. The aim for teams in your quiz is to identify them.

Round 3: Connections
9 questions on General Knowledge, plus a final question asking for a 2018-related question between the previous 9 answers.
Round 4: Sport
10 questions on sport in 2018, such as "At the 2018 European Athletics Championships, Dina Asher-Smith became the first British woman in history to run 200 metres in less than how many seconds?"

Round 7: Which Month?
10 questions asking teams to name the month of 2018 in which various events took place, such as "In which month did a cold spell nicknamed the Beast from the East first hit the UK?"
Round 8: Double Trouble
10 questions themed around events from the year 2018. Each correct answer scores 2 points, but teams can leave answers blank as minus 2 points are awarded for each wrong answer.
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.
