Welcome back to Quizbeard – I’m going to ask 25 trivia questions, themed over five subject rounds. You can earn a point for every question you answer correctly and can also play a Black Spot card on any one round, doubling your score on correct answers there. If you’re going to play your Black Spot, please try to do so before the first question in your chosen round has been asked, so all you have as a clue is the round title.
Everything is explained at the website, which can be found at Quizbeard.com, including an archive of all previous quizzes, links to social media, contact information and the quiz kit, where you can print out blank answer sheets and black spot cards for your own use.
If you’d like to nominate a subject to be covered in the quiz, please get in touch and I’ll give you a mention. If you’d like to leave a review at Apple Podcasts, that would really help more people to discover and play the quiz, and you can support the podcast further by going to quizbeard.com/support.
New show announcement - CONTESTANTS REQUIRED!
With a working title of ‘Quizbeard’s Black Spot Challenge’, I'm working on a new weekly show, which will be different because it will feature interaction with a CONTESTANT. You can see where this is heading.
Recorded over a Zoom call and released as an audio podcast, each contestant will face three rounds of five questions:
Total possible score: 30 points.
The ‘Mystery Envelope’ round will be five questions on a subject topic, selected at the time from a choice of three by the contestant. The ‘Black Spot’ round will be five prepared questions on a subject of the contestant’s prior choosing (think Mastermind’s specialist subject).
I’d like to record a fair few of these before pulling the trigger and releasing for download, so if anyone would like to take the Black Spot Challenge (or whatever it ends up being called) as a contestant, please register your interest by visiting quizbeard.com/blackspot
