Word puzzles are probably the most popular of pastimes for people who enjoy quizzes, you only have to look at the popularity of crosswords to realise that. They also make great paper rounds as the combined “brain -power” of the team always helps to solve even the most difficult of clues. You can almost feel the energy at a good quiz!

I have split these quizzes into three sections, but as always this are just my thoughts and I am sure that you can think of many different possibilities for exciting paper rounds.
