So hands up, who has been invited to a Zoom quiz?
Whether it's with family or friends, it's hard to avoid being invited for a Zoom quiz.
Sounds fun right? Spending time with people you love whilst being in the comfort of your own home, they don't need to know that you're just in your pants do they?
Whether you're excited or reluctantly agreeing to participate, all is well until that dreaded whatsapp message pops into the group chat; "you need to host one of the rounds".
Host a round? But, I have no general knowledge... I don't know what the tallest building in Croatia is (it's the chimney of the Plomin Power Station in Istria, in case you were wondering).
Can I just have a round of video game related questions instead? Yes, yes you can.
We have complied a collection of our best video game questions, including some Nippon Marathon questions (it would be rude not to), to make sure you're the very best Quizmaster there was, like no one ever was.
