Table Top Quizzes

Table-top rounds are also known as Paper rounds or marathon rounds and they are an excellent way to start a quiz night. A good table-top round should keep the teams occupied throughout the night especially between rounds where the hard worked quiz master is trying to mark the answer sheets.

There are many different types and I have attempted to identify the main types and give some examples of each type. All of these can be down loaded and used freely in your quizzes or just use them to give you ideas for your own.

All the quizzes are in PDF format for which you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader, this can be obtained free from the Adobe site or by clicking here.


The quizzes can be printed directly from the PDF which will open in a separate window.
