Can you guess how many quiz questions there are in this book? Here's a clue -- the book is called the AMAZING 10,000 QUIZ CHALLENGE! Any nearer?
If you think that there may be a few hundred questions, or if you don't have any ideas, then perhaps this book is not for you! On the other hand, if you like lots of questions -- 10,000 of them -- and you enjoy a wide variety of quiz types, then this is most definitely the book of your dreams!
There are straightforward quizzes that each contain 20 questions, and all you have to do is answer them! These quizzes are arranged in broad subject areas, such as AT THE MOVIES, TELEVISION and GENERAL KNOWLEDGE. There's a colorful icon above each quiz to help you find your way around the book. In addition, there are some more specialized quizzes. So, for example, in a quiz headed SPORT you could come across a question about anything sporting, whereas some quizzes are about individual sports, such as TENNIS or personalities, such as DAVID BECKHAM.
Throughout the book there are feature quizzes linked to calendar dates and the seasons of the year. We up the question count to 50 for these double page specials.
We like to provide you with different types of quizzes, and you will find plenty of the following...
MULTI-CHOICE. You have to decide which of the three given answers is the correct one.
TRUE OR FALSE. Can you call our bluff and decide which statements are true and which are false?
NAME THE YEAR. Identify the year in question from some headliness of the time.
DOUBLE TAKE. A quiz for the two-faced, where two different questions lead to the same answer.
PICTURE QUIZZES. In each quiz we play some tricks with pics! There are famous faces to identify and some crafty connections to track down!
WHO SAID. . . ? Match the quotation to the speaker.
GUESS WHO... ? Identify the personalities from the few selected facts.
PLUS many QUICKFIRE QUIZZES where you can show your expert knowledge or total ignorance about subjects varying from capital cities to international sports stars.
The quizzes are NOT graded in levels of difficulty. The downright obscure will be found rubbing shoulders with questions that most of us will have no problems in answering. You may have sailed through questions 1 to 19, only to find that you get sunk on the final one. This book is packed with color and cartoons, highlighting the fact that quizzes are here to entertain you. The main thing about all quizzes is that they are meant to be fun! There is a certain satisfaction in the knowledge that you know more about Bolivian poets than anyone else in the room, but we strongly suggest that the winner-takes-all attitude is not the best one to have... and anyone who shows signs of Quiz Rage should have a break from answering questions for a while.
Whether you are a complete quiz novice or an expert, this collection of quizzes will provide you with hours of entertainment. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
