Create a Great Quiz Night

First, decide on someone who will be the ‘quiz master’ or game leader. This is a person who creates the questions, looks up the answers to make sure they are accurate and who is in charge of the organization of the game as well as the scoring. It is important that this person does not participate in the actual game because, having come up with the quiz night questions theirself, they is privy the answers.

Once the ‘quiz master’ is selected, they will decide which categories will be covered. The best quiz nights use a variety of questions from many different categories and fields of interest, rather than just a select few. It is a good idea for the players to tell the quiz leader what subjects interest them the most or which subjects they have the most knowledge in, so they can create questions to suite the people who will be participating. Though the number of categories is variable, usually a game with five to six categories, each category comprising one round works best.

Traditional categories such as history and science are always good choices, but some non-traditional categories can be fun as well. One fun category is called ‘Name that Person.’ For this round, the quiz master projects childhood pictures of celebrities, politicians, or other sports stars, which can be found with a simple image search” on the internet, and the players must guess who the person is. Another round, called ‘Guess that Song,’ is created by playing two to three second clips from songs and having the players guess what song it is. They must write the correct song title and recording artist to get credit.

After the quiz master has decided which categories they will select questions from, they should write each category title on a piece of paper and create 10-15 quiz questions for each one. These questions should vary in difficulty level, so that some are easy to answer, even if the player is not an expert in the field, and others are much more difficult and require special knowledge. If the category is something such as history or sports, which span over large periods of time, make sure to use questions from all different time periods rather than just a few. The game leader should not show anyone the questions. They are also in charge of looking up the answers to make sure the correct one is written down. The quiz master can use already-created questions from trivia games such as Trivial Pursuit or he can create his own questions and look up the answers in reliable sources.
