Ever been to a Quiz Night?
"In Western Australia, quiz nights are popular as a form of entertainment and a fundraising activity. If you've never been to one, I hope you enjoy this "virtual" quiz night."
15 Points Per Correct Answer - No time limit
The first step before attending a quiz night is to invite your trivia-loving friends to make up a table. Quiz night tables usually consist of 6 to 8 people. Since quiz nights are almost always fundraisers, many people and businesses donate prizes. What is the most common first prize?
Dinner for 6-8 people at a restaurant
All of these answers are common first prizes
Bottles of wine
Food or grocery hampers
Quiz nights need to be held in a suitable venue. Which of the following venues are quiz nights most likely to be held at?
Sporting club rooms
All the answers are correct
A community hall
A function room in a hotel or pub
At most quiz nights, there are usually 8 or 10 rounds of 10 questions per round. A good quiz night organiser will ensure that there are some easy questions as well as some challenging ones. I hope you find this sample question easy.
Australia is the only place in the world which is home to mammals which lay eggs. To which biological order do these unusual animals belong?
Not all the questions should be easy, of course. You need a few hard ones to sort the sheep from the goats! Is the following question hard? Only if you don't know the answer.
Where in Australia will you find the biggest rock in the world?
Before you attend a quiz night, it is a good idea to check the daily newspaper, as there is almost always a question about the paper. What is possibly the most commonly asked quiz night question in Western Australia?
When was the "The West Australian" newspaper established?
What is the price of "The West Australian" newspaper?
On which page will you find the cartoons (comic strips)?
What telephone number do you call for home delivery of the paper?
Trick questions are a common inclusion and many of them are classics that you've heard before; for example, how many months of the year have 28 days? Answer: 12, or all of them. Do you know this one? Which came first - the chicken or the egg?
(One word - egg or chicken)
The person who prepares the questions is also likely to throw in one or two brainteasers or riddles, such as this one: What is greater than God, more evil than the Devil, the rich don't want for it, the poor have it and if you eat it, you'll die?
(One word, 7 letters beginning with 'n')
In between the rounds of questions, while the answers are being marked, it is common to play a game which involves the tossing of coins. What is the name of this game?
Heads and Tails
Another way of killing time between rounds is to ask "spot questions"; that is, a single question for an on-the-spot prize. These are often "Who am I?" questions. Here's one for you to try.
Who am I?
I was born in Perth, Western Australia, in 1930.
I am well known as a musician, artist and television performer.
From 1948 to 1952 I was the Western Australian state champion swimmer for a variety of events and distances.
I was created a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in 2006.
My cover versions of "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "Stairway to Heaven" were not appreciated by some Queen and Led Zeppelin fans.
My portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was controversial too.
I am credited with the invention of that unusual musical instrument, the wobble board.
(First and last name required)
At intervals throughout the evening, the answers to previous rounds are given. Sometimes your table's correct answer will be marked incorrect. What usually happens if you wish to dispute the answer?
All of these answers are valid.
You have to make a donation for the privilege of disputing an answer - and the judges' decision is final.
You aren't allowed to dispute answers - the judge's decision is final.
You put your case forward and the people attending the quiz night decide if your answer is acceptable.
