A Quiz Night Table Game : 1920s Slang

A Quiz Night table game is a sheet of paper containing a list of fun questions or a riddle that a team may work on at their own pace throughout the night.

With normal quiz rounds all the teams hear the questions and write down the answers at the same time.  With a table game the question sheet is available on the table from the beginning of the quiz.

Here is an example table game in which 1920s slang expression must be matched up with it’s meaning.

You can download this table game as a Word file.

If you have a Quiz Night of 8 rounds you may want to provide 3 table games.  Let the quiz participants know when they will have to hand in the table games.  For example the first table game may need to be handed in before the start of the 4th round, the second table game needs to be handed in before the start of the 7th round and the last table game needs to be handed in before the start of the last round.

By staggering the handing in of the table games you give yourself more time to get them marked.

It makes things simpler to make each table game worth the same amount of points as a normal round. If a normal round consists of 8 questions worth 10 points each it makes sense to make each table game worth 80 points.
