Picture quizzes are probably the most common and easiest of all table top rounds to compile. Many quiz masters merely cut pictures of celebrities, politicians, sportsmen etc. from the newspapers or gossip magazines, stick them on paper and photocopy. Voilà! A picture quiz.

I prefer to make these up on my laptop, for two reasons. Firstly I think that they look a little more professional and secondly I can easily use them again if required. The methodology is easy.

  1. Decide on the subject matter – don’t just stick to celebrities ,try something a little different. (I’ve included some ideas below).
  2. Find the photos, generally a search using Google Images will suffice. Try to make sure that the images are of good quality or they won’t print well. Save the images to your computer.
  3. I’ve made a template using OpenOffice Writer comprising of 30 numbered cells, for each photo click inside a cell and insert photo. The picture should automatically resize to fit the cell. All of the quizzes that have 30 photos in the selection below have been compiled this way.
  4. Then just print them out. – Simple.

 

I’ve split the examples into different types, but I’m sure that there are many more. Let me know what others you have come up with.

 

Due to prohibitive costs associated with licensing pictures to put on the site, I’ve had to remove all the picture rounds that feature people. You can still make up your own following the tips on this page but why not try those produced by Instant Quizzes. These are fully licensed and offer good value for use in clubs and pubs, they can be found using this link.

    Hi Ken

    I have been using some of your quizzes for our club’s monthly quiz nights. They are SO good, I’d be lost without you. Thank you so much.

    Hi Ken
    We did a SPOT THE DOG quiz of yours at an event recently. It was great. However we noticed a mistake with two of the answers.
    Q3 is Butch – Spike is apparently the pup and Q 25 is Sweep – Sooty was a yellow bear. Not complaining, just helping you! Thanks

    Hi Ken

    Do you have material be way of quizzes and mind puzzles suitable for people with dementia. I work in a care home and find it difficult to find stuff which the residents don’t think of as childish

    Kind regards

    Dear Ken

    I’ve volunteered to do a monthly quiz at Lifetime a free club for the over 50’s. It’s a club bringing together retired people where they can meet people and enjoy all sorts of interests. Your quizzes are invaluable to someone like me and are being enjoyed by many people at the club. Many thanks.
