1.What era do your audience come from? If our quiz is in a pub, social club or event then the questions and answers need to be general and varied. This will give all quizzers the chance to get involved.

2.Does a quiz suit the night or event? This may sound like a straight forward question but time and time again an event is arranged and a quiz has been compiled. Sometimes this time could be better filled with something completely different and more fitting to the situation.

3.Are you going for quality rather than quantity? When setting out your questions and answer try to make sure that you go for clever but not too clever questions. Task people but don't ask the impossible. To the nearest or in which year type questions are great tie breakers but don't fill a quiz with them generally they are educated guess work only.

4.Does everyone have an equal chance? The simple answer is no as some people have a better knowledge base. Remember that nobody knows everything but everyone wants to feel they have a chance of answering some of the quiz questions. This doesn't mean that you can tailor them to fit everyone but you can give a broad range of subjects within your general knowledge quiz.

5.Are you wanting it to be a regular quiz night? When setting out your quiz questions you may have a bigger idea of hosting a quiz nights weekly or monthly. IF this is the case make sure that you are extra clever and do your homework on the client, regulars, surrounding area, possible punters. Getting what people like in your area will ensure that your quiz night will be a success making money for your event, charity or pub.

Don't bite off more than you can chew but have a go at creating your own quiz questions. If you spend too much time on it then there are lots of different companies that will sell you instant quizzes but be sure that you get answer sheets, question and answers and that the handout rounds are available.
