Not sure if this appeared in print but the Telegraph have a good little article on Quizzing HERE.
Couple of points worthy of some discussion maybe -
-Marcus Berkman is quoted here, his Brain Men book being one of the best books on quizzing out there, and he states Trivial Pursuit started the quizzing boom in the 1980's. Would people who were around at the time agree with that? I am a little young to be able to comment but I am interested to know if that is the case.
-I totally agree on the issue relating to Sky Sports vs Pub Quizzes. Thinking of myself, I definitely drink more in a 2 hour quiz than if I were watching a football game. No matter who was playing. The problem I guess getting people in for the quiz in the first place.
- Funny that the "British Gas" question is mentioned. I was asked that very question in a quiz recently and totally agree with Marcus on that one. I am finding so much lazy setting, particularly in current affairs rounds, lately.
