The quiz is made up of 5 separate files as follows...

First of all there is a specially designed 2 page answer sheet that you can print out and distribute to each team at the start of the quiz for them to write their answers on as you read out questions. This also features a round by round scoresheet to make it easy to see how each team has performed after all the answers have been marked at the end of the quiz.

Secondly, there is the picture round, which again is to be printed out and distributed to each team at the start of the quiz for them to work on straight away, and carry on working on throughout the quiz and during any breaks you have.

Next there is a 4 page document featuring all the questions in rounds 2 to 8 for you to read out during the quiz, along with all the answers to these plus the answers to the handout round to be used at the end of the quiz to mark everyone's answers. This also features 2 Olympics themed tie-break questions to be used at the end of your quiz if two or more teams end up with the same score. There is also a "questions only" version of this document that may not be needed, but is included to give the quiz-master the option of taking part in the quiz without being able to see the answers.

Finally, there is a 4 page document featuring detailed round by round instructions and notes, plus general advice and recommendations on running the quiz.

If you buy this quiz, we will give you access to pdf files you can download. These will contain all of the material described above. You probably already have everything you need to access and use these rounds in your quiz, but you might want to check our requirements page to make sure.
