One noticeable side-effect of the COVID-19 lockdown has been a huge surge in online quizzing. And here at the IQO we’ve been regularly approached by people running their own quizzes for the first time but who don’t want the hassle of writing questions for themselves.
With that in mind, we’ve decided to fill that need — and also raise some money for a good cause at the same time. So we’ve created what we’re calling Quarantine Quiz Packs — basically a ready-made set of questions that anyone can download and use for their own quizzes.
The first such pack is now available on this page, via this download button:
This pack contains:
- 8 rounds of general-knowledge questions, including 2 picture rounds and 1 music round (The picture rounds and music round are intended to be screen-shared in Zoom and similar videoconferencing software)
- All questions have been verified and are up-to-date as of June 2020
- They are a mixed selection of difficulty levels to suit everyone
The pack itself is free to download so you can use the questions in your own quizzes — however, the file containing the answers is locked with a password. To unlock this file we’ll ask for a charity donation — which charity and how much is entirely up to you, but we suggest a €10 mininum.
After you’ve downloaded the pack, to obtain the password please forward the email receipt from your charity donation to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you the password as soon as possible via email.
If this succeeds in raising a decent amount of money for charity we’ll consider doing additional packs, perhaps on specialist subjects – all feedback welcome! Drop us an email or leave a comment at the bottom of this post.
