The quizmaster 🎩
What does every great quiz need? Exactly, a quizmaster. So at first while playing »Trivia Questions - The Party Game« you have to define one player as the quizmaster. He doesn’t answer any questions by himself. Instead he is the head of the game and in charge of asking questions and evaluating the answers. So it should be someone who likes to talk and discuss with the other players.
If nobody wants to be the quizmaster in the first place, just let the whole group decide who is the best choice for the role. If you can’t agree on anyone, you can also draw lots!
The beginning 🤡
After defining the quizmaster, he seperates the other players in two or three different teams. Let the whole group decide how many persons are in one team. But the quizmaster should always make sure that it’s fair.
If you aren’t enough players (or some of you are really, really confident), you can also form one-person-groups. At first, the quizmaster asks one of the following questions as a tie-breaker. The team which is closest to the right answer starts the play.
- In which year did the Alcoholics Anonymous first meeting take place? Answer: 1935
- Including the antenna on the top, how many metres tall is the Eiffel Tower? Answer: 324 metres
- How many cities are there in England? Answer: 51
- In which year did Mickey Mouse become 70 years old? Answer: 1998
- In what year was the first Christmas card produced? Answer: 1846
We have collected 170+ Trivia questions out of 12 different categories for your gaming night!
Now you have a quizmaster, at least two different teams and you also already decided which team starts. After the quizmaster takes a look at the 12 different categories, he picks 3 of them and lets the team choose one. For example: »Geography, literature or celebrety?« In our »Trivia Questions - The Party Game« we present you 12 categogries with 170+ Trivia questions:
Maybe the team wants the category »celebrety«, so the quizmaster takes one of these questions and asks them. Now the team has to answer the question within 1,5 minutes. If they know the right answer, they get 2 points.
If the time runs out or their answer is wrong, the next team get the chance to answer the trivia question but only within 30 seconds. This continues until one team answers correctly or there isn’t another team left.
Every team is just allowed to give one answer each round. If their answer is wrong, it’s the others group’s turn.
So the teams can get 2 points on their turn. If they fail, one of the other teams can get 1. In the following rounds it’s basically the same. It goes on and on and on. But always remember that the quizmaster is the head of the game.
He decides between how many categories the teams can choose on their turn. In the beginning, it may be interesting choosing beetween lots of different options. But during the game you can limit the choices or even remove them and decide the category by yourself.
Variationes and rules
- You think that a party game with points is boring? You can always spice it up with something to drink. Grab some alcohol and win sips instead of points. For example the winning team gets two sips and can divide them between the other players.
- You need some help to find the right answers? If there are more than 2 competing teams, you can include a joker. Each team gets one joker and can add them if necessary and ask one of the other teams. If they know the answer, both teams get 2 points.
- Maybe the quizmaster doesn’t want that the players to choose their categories by themselves. You can always pick categories randomly.
