In my quizzing I have a little dilemma in the sense that I really enjoy music rounds, but because a) I have a very narrow knowledge of certain eras and b) I usually quiz in small teams, they always end up costing us in the placings. It is a very difficult thing to improve upon and even though I have tried, and improved marginally, it is always going to be a weak area in any quiz I do.
But last week I found a quiz with a pretty perfect solution. Separate it!
At half time in the quiz I now aim to attend regularly on Thursdays, they play 15 tracks in which you have to name the artist and the winning team gets a bottle of wine. Ideal! Doesn't count for the normal quiz yet I can still play a music quiz which I enjoy.
And the evidence was greater than ever this week. Had the 15 point music round counted in the main quiz (out of 54) lour placing would have fell dramatically.
A great idea! Gives every team a chance of winning something and keeps the main quiz as just that....a quiz!
