Does anyone have any real pet hates at local quizzes where one type of round can ruin your night?
I know a fair few local quizzers who take things as serious as it gets and refuse to partake in picture rounds so find quizzes without them and various other quizzes are not interested in anything with any gimmicks or gimmicky rounds. So what are yours? Are there any quizzes you avoid because of a certain round?
One of my top ones relating to the local area is music rounds. Now I do not mind this at all usually I am fairly strong in this area and it gives my team mate, who is not a quizzer at all, something to have a go at. However, at one local quiz I attend on a Thursday there are two rounds of identifying music. This makes up 20 points in total with ten songs and a point for title and artist. The rest of the quiz, including the picture round, is only worth 35 points so you are looking at 20/55 relating to music. Considering the music is rather obscure and catered towards the "old working mens clubs" audience it rules us out of contention. We love the atmosphere, people and questions in the quiz, just a shame about these two obscure music rounds.
