One of my quizzing highlights of the year was certainly being given the chance to write for and promote Qwizzers.App. A free to play, daily 5 question quiz with content written by myself. Over the first 60-70 editions we have picked up a large following of players who compete every day for streaks and to share scores online. With new leaderboard features coming in January 2023, the app should continue to grow and I look forward to seeing what the year brings!

Just wanted to take this opportunity to wish a Happy New Year to everyone! I Hope 2023 is kind to you!

2023 Podcast New Series

 

A few people have been asking about the current status of the podcast. The last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind with a job change, a packed festive period with the little one and all manner of things. So sadly, I have not had chance to record any new episodes. However, the new series of the podcast will begin in January 2023!

Updates - Qwizzers.app

 




Its been a while! After a hectic month involving a superb Buzzer Quiz organised by OQL, a league season that ended with promotion into Division 5 and a decent cup run that only ended in the last round of the Quarter Final, I can finally get caught up on all of my other quizzing escapades.

Whilst the podcast is on hiatus until January, I have been investing plenty of time in the Qwizzers.app project I have been a part of. The site hosts 5 daily questions, written by me, and you compare scores with me.

The tech team have recently added sign ups which paves the way for leaderboards which should make things even more competitive!

Quizzer Christmas Gift Guide #1

 In what has became something of an annual tradition, I will be posting up a few recommendations over the coming weeks for Christmas Gifts for the quizzer in your life, or indeed yourself. This serves as more a book/game recommendation series than anything else but if it gets someone out of a pickle at Xmas time then all's well and good. If you have anything to add or any suggestions of your own please email daniel@thequizaddict.com and Ill add them. 


I will start off this year with one of my favourite Quiz Books...



David Hepworth's "Rock and Roll A Level" was released back in 2019 and I think has featured on everyone of my Xmas lists since. The book, for me, is the style of quiz book I have taken a fondness too, in the sense that rather than make brags about "10,000 questions" etc, David has focused on interesting and challenging ones, and provided plenty of information on the answer pages. The questions are original, well thought out and cover a wide range of music, and the pain staking research that has gone into the book is evident on each page. Even as someone who consider himself fairly decent at music quizzes, I found plenty to learn and challenge here and its a great book to whip out and throw questions around at games nights etc!


Podcast Episodes

Plenty of new podcast episodes to get stuck into. We have reached 1966 in the World Cup series, and with new episodes on Sport, Gk and Music alongside it there is plenty to get stuck into. My latest set is also live on Quizzers.App site  HERE


The podcast is kindly sponsored by Quizzers.app. A new daily quiz game I have been writing questions for. You can find that HERE

QuizSwipe Football

 


Long term readers will know that I am a huge fan of Quiz Apps and have suggested many over the years which I know people will enjoy...and the latest one is QuizSwipe Football. I found this somewhat by accident on the Play Store and was immediately hooked and the app has became part of my daily routine. Each day 10 questions are presented for players, with a range of difficulty, with players simply required to Swipe the answer. With leaderboards, friend links up and plenty of the stats, the app is certainly worth a look if you are a keen football quizzer. I am hoping to set up a QuizAddict mini league very soon so keep an eye out for that. Otherwise, download this free app and see what you think. I have certainly learnt a think or two and I considered myself half decent at football!


 More information can be found HERE 


QuizSwipe have also very kindly sponsored some entries in the FIFA World Cup Quiz Series I am running on the podcast so make sure to check that out!










New Daily Quiz

 


I am pleased to announce that I am now working in partnership with Qwizzers, a new 5-question daily game with questions written by myself.  I'll mention more ongoing about Qwizzers but thought I would give it a quick mention as my involvement begins tomorrow with the first batch of 5 questions. Let me know how you get on, share you scores on Twitter! 


You can find the new quiz each day at 1pm HERE
