Our Believe it or Not corporate quiz nights offer your company the opportunity to bring either staff or blue-chip clients together for an afternoon or evening of serious hilarity.
Where once trivia was seen as a pub quiz general knowledge game for octogenerians, these days both young and old embrace the concept, as a wave of trivia related events sweep the country.
We have several different styles of quiz packages, depending on your budget, from the original English pub quiz format, to our multimedia big screen quizzes, to a virtual app based quiz.
Our standard quizzes contain eight rounds of ten questions, plus other fun components like 'Last Man Standing', 'The List' and 'The Ponderous Puzzle'.
Competing team's answers are always written, to ensure that nobody is put on the spot or required to do any public speaking (although we encourage any light-hearted interaction).
Our quizzes are not 'Mastermind' based; they are for everyday people and cover interesting topics including popular culture. The majority of our corporate clients are businesses who seek to provide their staff and/or clients with a hassle-free, fun yet competitive night of entertainment, which usually then becomes an annual event.
It's also perfect for your company's conference, your local school event, fundraisers or a sports club. We take the hassle out of organising the event by supplying everything required to run the quiz, or supply you with a DIY package.
We like to cater to your individual needs, whether that means bringing our quiz on-site to your business or at a pub or function centre of your choice … we'll take care of everything!

Every quiz is made up of several different components. Each is explained below:
The topics take in every possible area of interest, and will feature both recent and historical content. Some questions will be obvious to a four year old, whilst Granny will have no idea, and vice-versa!
Play me well. The success of your team depends upon it!
Choose one round before you start for which your points will be doubled. A team's success is pivotal to choosing which rounds are their strongest suits. The best way to determine this is to pass around the topic sheet, with each team member selecting their favourite rounds. The two most 'ticked' topics are where you should play your Jokers!
An ongoing problem where a clue is given at the end of each round. It could be a famous person, year, country, object, movie, book or band. The clues get progressively easier, with teams receiving points dependent on how quickly they solve it. The quicker they solve it, the more points they get.
A 'heads or tails' style individual competition run in 'quiz' style. Usually run as an ice-breaker to start the night, you have a sheet of ten questions. Everyone stands up. Ask the first question, and give the two answer options. If a person thinks the first answer is correct, they put their hands on their head. If they think the second answer is spot on, they'll put their hands on their bottom. Announce the answer and anyone who gets it wrong must sit down. Carry on in this fashion until one person remains. They win a prize!
This takes place halfway through the quiz when you take a drinks break. Read out the category for The List. Teams write down ten items relating to the category, taking care to write down their 'dead certs' first on The List, and their hunches last. This is because once they get one wrong they break the chain, and stop scoring points. For instance, if they get number 5 wrong, yet get numbers 6 - 10 right, they only score 4 points, as the chain of correct answers was broken at number 5.
We get asked all sorts of things about how the quiz is run, or how to organise one from scratch. Here are a few common questions along with some answers that may help you out:
We're nationwide, but in some areas we rely on you to run the quiz as a DIY option, after we supply you with everything, and liase with your host to ensure the night will run smoothly. Currently we can host your quiz in Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, New Plymouth, Tauranga, Rotorua, Wellington, Nelson, Christchurch, Queenstown and Dunedin.
The questions are aimed at a wide audience - men and women, young and old, and are designed to cater for as many people's interests as possible. They're also not aimed at rocket scientists - rather, everyday people.
We can usually recommend a venue in your area, however we leave that side of it to you. We just need to know when and where, what time, what package you require, and how many teams you will have.
Our One Hour Quickie quiz can be run in as little as 60 minutes (funny that!), or as long as 3 hours. Ideally though, for our most popular product, the standard multimedia quiz, you should aim for 15 minutes per round, so around two hours for the eight rounds. This is obviously affected by additional activities, auctions and the like.
You sure can! If you want to do this, we suggest you add one question to each of our rounds, or perhaps theme 'The List' around your company or organisation. If we need to specifically tailor your quiz, additional charges may be applicable.
In short - no. We leave that all up to you.
It's done as a team. All the answers are written, so maximum participation is guaranteed, and no-one is put on the spot, by having to call out answers.
It really doesn't matter. Best bet is to have at least six teams, so if you have 28 people , do seven teams of 4, or if you have 100 people do ten teams of 10. Try and keep it as a level playing field as much as you can though. The more even the numbers on each team are the better.
The multimedia quiz is a Windows based product. We will send you a download link from which the multimedia component of the quiz is delivered. You will need a Windows laptop, and either a projector and screen, or large-ish TV for the teams to see. If using a projector and screen you will also need a VGA or HDMI cable which transfers the pictures from laptop to projector, plus an audio cable from your headphone socket to your audio output (usually a sound system or set of desktop speakers – Logitech ones are really good). If using HDMI between laptop and a TV, the audio component is usually provided directly via the HDMI cable.
