Two years ago Quizzes were introduced to the chart forum, with a series of quizzes including Family Fortunes, Pointless, Never Mind The Buzzjacks and Cover Puzzle. In light of the pandemic leaving us all in our own homes for the most part it seems like the ideal time to bring it back for Season 2.

If you would like to host a quiz, then please post here which week you would like to take and what quiz you would like to do. You can do one of the tried and tested formats or if you have your own format explain it to me so it can be considered. Your questions ideally should all be chart/music related; for more general-knowledge quizzes, there will be similar events running in The Lounge in the not too distant future.

The big question now is, will anyone be able to dethrone... ME! from the top of the leaderboard. Last season's leaderboard can be viewed at this link.

To get the ball rolling I will host the first quiz, which will be unveiled later today. Ideally this season should last for 10 weeks as per S1, with one quiz per week, but this can be shortened or extended depending on demand.

Schedule:

Week 1 (27/03): Pointless [danG] [Entry / Results]
Week 2 (03/04): Family Fortunes [mdh] [Entry / Results]
Week 3 (10/04): Album Cover Puzzle [M4NGO] [Entry / Results]
Week 4 (17/04): Never Mind The Buzzjacks [LewisGT] [Entry / Results]
Week 5 (24/04): Single Cover Puzzle [FUTURE NOSTALGIA] [Entry / Results]
Week 6 (01/05): Family Fortunes [chrissmith276] [Entry / Results]
Week 7 (08/05): Guess the songs that have been at the most different chart positions [jimwatts] [Entry / Results]
Week 8 (15/05): Album Cover Puzzle [awardinary] [Entry / Results]
Week 9 (22/05): Jordan Lee [Family Fortunes] [Entry / Results]
Week 10 (29/05): Bré [Pointless] [Entry / Results]

For those of you unfamiliar with Quizzes here is an explanation of the main formats from Bré.

QUOTE(Botchia @ Jul 29 2019, 09:44 PM) *
FAMILY FORTUNES
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
In this quiz, the host asks a series of questions (typically 10 of them) and participants answer each question with what they think the MOST popular response will be. Points are scored based on how many other people gave the same answer as you to each question, so for example if the question is 'name a single by El Chombo' and 15 people responded 'Dame Tu Cosita', each of those people would be given 14 points for that question. Most points wins.

POINTLESS
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
This quiz is basically the inverse of Family Fortunes. The host will, again, ask a series of ~10 questions, but here the participants answer each question with what they think the LEAST popular response will be. Points are allocated the same way as in Family Fortunes but here it's the player with the fewest points at the end that wins (so the best answer to a question - a Pointless answer - is one that no other participant answered). There's also the catch that an incorrect answer is penalised by giving the answerer the maximum possible score for that question, i.e. one less than the number of participants (so if there are 31 participants and someone answered the question 'name a winner of the X Factor' with 'Michelle McManus', they would be given 30 points for that question).


NEVER MIND THE BUZZJACKS
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
The host uploads onto SoundCloud/YouTube a series of short (usually instrumental) clips from songs, usually about 20 of them, and participants simply have to name the songs, scoring a point for each one they get right, or a half-point for guessing the right artist. There's also often some kind of bonus questions based on the songs on the side for additional points. Here's a quick guide RabbitFurCoat put together wayyy back in the day with some instructions for uploading a round of NMTBJ onto SoundCloud.

ALBUM COVER PUZZLE
(example from last year: voting thread / results thread)
The host makes a collage of cropped sections from album covers, usually about 20 of them, and participants name the albums that they are taken from. Participants get points for each one they get right - this may just be 1 point per correct answer, or a varying number of points decided by the hosts based on how difficult they think each one is to guess. Like in NMTBJ there may also be bonus questions on the side for additional points.


OTHER FORMATS
You are also welcome to try other formats out which aren't listed above! For example, last year we had:-

Dingbats (courtesy of PeteFromLeeds)
Only Connect (courtesy of Suedehead)

So you're welcome to propose something brand new or use one of these alternative formats as well.

The leaderboard works by giving 30 points to the winner of each quiz, 29 points to the runner-up and so on. If there are more than 30 participants, anyone outside the top 30 will walk away with nothing. If the host is unable to participate in their own quiz (ie if it's NMTBJs/ACP) or wishes to sit out their own FF/Pointless quiz (hosts are allowed to participate in these, on the basis that they write their own answers before others start coming in) then 'host compensation points' are given by taking the average of their points attained from other quizzes.

If no one else signs up for the last few weeks I'm happy to host something for a second time, I've got a few different ideas.

Very pleased to be the leader but it won't last as I'm useless at album covers.

If the spots don't get filled, I'm happy to host another quiz in one of the later weeks. I could do another album covers one with a different theme, or an audio one similar to Never Mind The Buzzjacks or something else.

I've been prepping for a new thread on songs which have been at the most different chart positions - I think it could work as a quiz (i.e. guess the songs). Can do Week 7 or any other.
