Bingo Style Pub Quiz

The majority of pub quizzes take the regular form, of several rounds of questions on specific topics, such as music, television, film and sports. Why not try something different? We detail here how to run a Bingo style pub quiz:


The bingo quiz format discussed here is comprised of a picture round of 10 questions, and a selection of 26 general knowledge questions. To play, you need a grid based answer sheet to place the answers into:

You can get copies of the answer sheet show above here from the website.

Before your quiz commences, distribute the picture quiz round and bingo quiz answer sheets to the participating teams.

Players should write their answers to the questions in the left had column, and then write the question number at random into an empty cell in the grid/ or simply write the question number and answer into the grid.

When all the teams are ready you should commence reading the questions from the question sheet, and the players should complete their answers as above.

When the quiz is over, you should read out the answers, and the players should mark the correct answers in the grid.

You should award a prize to the first team to get a complete line running from the left side of the grid to the right side, the line could be directly horizontal, or any combination of routes provided the line is unbroken. You should be aware that because different teams may get different answers right, but place their answers at random into the grid, it is possible for more than one team to get a line at the same time.

You might want to have a couple of tie-breaker questions on hand.

Finally, a prize should be awarded to the team getting the most correct answers. In the event of a draw, you can either award a prize to each team, or use the tie breaker/nearest the mark question to determine a winner.
