How do these Quarantine Quizzes Work?

It’s quite simple. If you have a ticket, we’ll email you on the day of the quiz with a Zoom meeting link and your unique password. Join the call five minutes before the quiz starts and we’ll take it from there. Expect questions to challenge all fan levels and interactive challenges which get you up off your sofa and interacting with other players.

How do these Quarantine Quizzes work? 1

Zoom

We’re very excited to see your faces and give players the opportunity to meet each other properly, so our quizzes will be taking place on Zoom. You don’t need to have a Zoom account to join a call, but downloading the app will help.

You will need a working camera and microphone to join in with the interactive challenges. If you’re feeling shy and would rather leave your camera off, that’s totally fine!

The Link

If you’ve bought a ticket, we’ll email you on the day of the quiz with a link to the call and your unique password. You’ll be directed to a waiting room and your quiz master will invite you in. Make sure you check your spam folder if you haven’t received the email by 1 hour before the quiz.

Cost

Tickets cost £5 for Early Birds and £7.50 for Standard. They are sold through Design My Night and you can purchase yours using the widget on each theme page.

Teams.

The interwebs means you can play in teams with anyone, anywhere. Of course, you’ll be able to see your team members in the Zoom call, but if you want to confer in private we suggest you get together on another video call at the same time or use Whatsapp.

Scores.

You’ll be marking your own scores and sharing them in the chat at the end. Don’t use Google – there’s no fun if you do.

Chat.

Zoom has a chat function for you to send messages to the entire group of quizzers, an individual player, or the quiz master.

Answers.

You can write these on any old bit of paper, but if you like a pristine answer sheet you’ll find them on this page.

Pictures and videos.

Some of the challenges might involve you sharing your creative masterpieces outside of the Zoom call. We mostly do that through our twitter account @spectacularpubquizzes.

Our team will take screenshots and recordings of the quiz throughout, to be shared in on social media and in marketing emails. If you would prefer not to be included in these, you can turn off your camera.

How do I access the quiz?

Do we have to pay for the quiz?

Yes. Tickets cost £5 for Early Birds and £7.50 for Standard. This money allows us to keep running quizzes and donate our profits to Child.org and their projects supporting mums and babies in Kenya and Sierra Leone throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
