Weekly Quiz

The weekly chat room quiz has been an integral part of UKP since the early days of the site. For a long time the quiz was hosted by the late Cosmic Fool, with a guest quizmaster (QM) standing in for him on a couple of occasions when he was hospitalised. Sadly Cos passed away in Nov 2006, but the quiz was continued as a tribute to a much loved member of the site. A tribute quiz was held on the Sunday following his passing, but had to be abandoned due to the sheer number of people who turned up to take part.

Since then the quiz has been run by Freebird and another QM who host it on alternate weeks. The other QM is currently Opalmoon, but other regular QMs have included Axeman, HerneOakShield and Araminta.

The format hasn’t changed much since the early days; 10 questions, sometimes themed, sometimes random, which are answered in a private window with scores announced at the end. There’s no prize for winning (except bragging rights if you want them), the main aim is to get people together in the chat room for a laugh and a chinwag.

There is a thread posted in the snug announcing each week’s quiz, with details of times and access if you need them, so why not come along and try it?

If you do decide to have a go there are 2 rules you need to be aware of :

  1. Rule No’1: The Quizmaster is always right.
  2. Rule No’2: If the Quizmaster is wrong, refer to rule no’ 1.

The Quiz is currently on hold due to issues with the chat room.
