The pub quiz quiz pack is made up of 5 separate files as follows...
First of all there is a professionally designed 2 page answer sheet, that you can print out and hand out 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 a handout round, which again is to be printed out and handed out to teams 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 5 page sheet with 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 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 another version of this 5 page sheet, but where all of the answers have been removed. This may not be needed, but is included in case the quiz-master would like to take part in the quiz too.
Finally, there is a 4 page sheet with instructions and advice on how to run a great quiz.
