Here clues like those used in cryptic crosswords are used to solve the answers. I like this type as you can adjust the difficulty of the clues to suit the audience, some easy ,some tricky ans some stinkers should keep them occupied all night long.
Here are some that I have used recently.
The clues give answers that are all towns and cities within the UK
The answers are all alcoholic beverages, as a clue in Q9 a person from Swansea is often referred to as a "JACK".
All names of popular films.
All names of pop or rock bands.
The answers are all film titles that have won the "Oscar" for BEST FILM.
These are all the names of shops in Port Talbot South Wales, but many of them are national outlets. This therefore may need some adaption for your quiz.
These are all names of television programmes that have aired in the UK.
