Take a competitive walk down memory lane…
Seeing as the first Newton Arms Pub Quiz went down so well – THANK YOU, YOU LOVELY LOT – I thought it would be rude not do another one for you. And seeing as I end up in an hour long walk down memory lane whenever I mention yo-yos, Bop-It, hair crimpers or Sunny D, it feels like a nostalgic late ’90’s and early ’00’s quiz is just the way that I’d like to spend an afternoon. You too? Well, you’re in luck because here it is. Why not put on some jellies, snap on a plastic choker and put Spiceworld on in the background. You’ll be zig-a-zig-ahh-ing through the rounds in no time…
HOW TO PLAY
The quiz consists of five rounds; two Q&A rounds – one for general knowledge and one for TV, film and music, two picture rounds – one for toys and games and one for one-hit wonders, and one music round.
The total points available is 60.
This quiz is pretty U.K based – so if you’re overseas then it might be best to make your own or adapt my questions. Give it a go – everyone loves a bit of nostalgia.
A good starter round that covers historical events, sports and a bit of everything.
You either had them or wanted them, but can you remember what they are called?
Because who didn’t watch Top of the Tops every Friday night?
You know the song, but do you know the artist of these one hit wonders?
A tricky one to play if you’re playing on your own, but if you’re playing in teams the quiz master just needs to play the linked up playlist on Spotify. Play just the first 10 seconds if you want to make it really hard. Give one point for the name of the artist and one point for the name of the song.
