    The only problem with maths or science as a topic is we have to pick dead easy year 7 questions so we're not discriminating.
    Why not have history and geography as separate subjects, along with pop culture, sport and general knowledge? Or yeah I guess we could combine history and geography and then have literature as the 5th topic. Yeah I like that actually.

    Now, between the rounds, I really liked the idea of naming the 51 American states, and having points per state you name, that should definitely be one of the extra activities.

    Questions for pop culture:
    - What language is Justin Bieber fluent in other than English?
    - Name the siblings in each of these bands (1 point per band); Good Charlotte, Oasis, Jonas Brothers, The Jackson 5, The Veronicas.

    Literature:
    - What is Albus Dumbledore's full name?
    - Which animals are the communist rulers in George Orwell's 'Animal Farm?'
    - In 'Pride and Prejudice', which sister elopes with Wickham?

    Geography and History:
    - What year was the battle of Hastings? (bonus point if they can name the winner)

    I prefer the idea of combining history and geography.
    How many different things are we having for in between? There actually isn't that much time to complete the sheets. I think 2 should be the maximum. So it's out of sudoku, famous faces, box puzzles, name the logo, or naming a list such as US states.

    Janek and I did that and got up to 45 so I think it should be a definite.

    I like Sudoku as well because it's something different. Famous Faces also should be there because it's an easy one to do.

    Name the Logo and Box Puzzles miss the cut.

    I'm for 3 but it's up to you guys.


    P.S. Congratulations on learning the internet Leya.

    I do know the internet, just not SRC forums.
    We did the naming US states at the High T and not many people were able to name many except Shrimp and Harriet because their brains are super tanks. But it's also hard to give points for that because if you give a point for each individual state, then there's a massive difference between the table groups. So pretty much the whole winner of the trivia depends on who can name the most US states, which we don't want. It only worked at the High T because Jessie insisted we were all winners.

    Isn't everyone at Fort Street brains supertanks?

    Anyway I think could name 40+ US States on the spot easy. Can't you?


    Ok so I've done a rough mock up of the Pop Culture round. Give me your suggestions and ripes with the Q's.


    1) Who sang the song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds?
    2) What language is Justin Bieber fluent in other than English?
    3) Name the siblings in each of these bands (1 point per band); Good Charlotte, Oasis, Jonas Brothers, The Jackson 5, The Veronicas
    4) Who sang the song Never Gonna give you up?
    5) “Get busy living or get busy dying!” is a line from which famous 1994 movie?
    6) On what street is the TV Soap Neighbours set on?
    7) Sean Penn won the 2009 Academy award for best actor after starring in which movie?
    Cool Wycleff Jean recently attempted to run for the Presidency in what country
    9) “Load up on guns, bring your friends It's fun to lose and to pretend” is a line from which Nirvana song?
    10) Name the 6 actors who had leading roles in the TV Sitcom “Friends.”

    me too...
    we should really just make a club.


    ANYWAY.
    I think a fort street round would be pretty cool, we could have questions like:

    who is the head of social sciences?
    what is mr osland's middle name? (we have to ask him first though)
    when he was a child, what did mr pagani want to be when he grew up? (same as question above)

    we can award points for creative/funny answers as well though.

    It would be hard to come up with 10 questions for the Fort Street Round. And most of them will probably be impossible to know, seeing as we have to ask the teachers themselves for the answers. But I guess if we give points for creativity, then it should be fine.

    By the way um koolkat, what is this quoting stuff? I don't get it. We don't need to see everything twice.

    It was very useful having that trivia game in the High Tea because it told us a number of important things we can apply to this Trivia Night.

    It comes in very handy if you put the number of points each question is worth at the end if it is more than one point (so that markers know what they are looking for) and give a total number of points at the end of each round. Do we want to keep the number of questions in each round consistent, or the number of points in each round consistent?

    Also it's good to have something organised right at the end, after the last round, so that people aren't bored while they're waiting for the final scores to be added. The final round should finish at least 15 minutes before the end of the night.

    For the Fort Street round, we don't have to have questions just about the teachers. We can have them about the school like how many trees are there in the Kilgour Quad etc...
    That should make that round easier?

    I'm sorry but it's really hard to understand what's going on and all that crap via the forum.
    Can the Q-people meet up one lunch time and discuss/decide what we are going to do.

    Because at the moment we've got ideas, questions and arguments flying all over the place.

    I quite like Harriet's and Romaan's questions.

    And ignore my previous statement about our trivia audience. I thought it would be a combination of people not just students. I lose.

    Alrighty lads?

    I would just like to say that this committee rocks, you are preparing well and great suggestions. Ali is right about the Fort St round - put in a combination of weird trivia questions and also some clever questions that could be answered by extremely observant people, based on aspects of the school.

    Romaan that layout of questions is exactly right, that makes it easier for the teams and markers. What you'll need to do when you end up getting to the final copies is to print off a page for each round with the number of points for the questionmaster (Romaan) and then another few copies with the answers printed below each question for the markers. If we have 10 teams, it'll be useful to have at least 5 markers so that each round can be marked quickly and efficiently.

    The bonus rounds will need to be marked also, you'll have to decide how to score those.

    I don't know if this would ruin the question or not, but year 8 learn about Islam in history (I'm guessing that that's what you're doing in history now) so it's not particularly fair to the year 7s to have question 10 in there.

    But the rest are good Smile
