Most of the quizzes we do at practices are of the 'quizbowl' type. In brief, if you're used to University Challenge, you'll find the questions a bit long, since they are written in the so-called pyramidal fashion, meaning that the clues in a starter question will get progressively easier, allowing people with a bigger depth of knowledge to buzz in earlier. You might like to see UK Quizbowl at for more information, and a basic rundown of how it all works, as well as some examples of the questions we tend to play. (The questions you'll find via the links on the left are, truly ancient, and are only there for archival purposes; they are not even slightly representative of what we do as a society, so do not worry if you find them a bit abstruse.)
