Using Quiz Night Templates for your Quiz

Trivia Rounds Template

See QuizNightHQ’s guide to Creating High Quality Trivia Questions for more information on how to use templates.

Creating a trivia round can be time-consuming and refining the look of your round can be a formatting challenge. There is a template available in Quiz Night HQ’s Marketplace specifically designed to take the formatting issues out of the equation. It has numbered slides with consistent fonts and animations for the answers. All you have to do is insert the question and accurately researched answer.

For an example of the end result, check out the Trivia Rounds available for purchase in Quiz Night HQ’s Marketplace.

There are a number of options for file types and screen resolutions depending on your needs.

  1. Widescreen Resolution PowerPoint (.pptx – PC or Mac)
  2. Widescreen Resolution Keynote (.key – Mac)
  3. Standard Resolution PowerPoint (.pptx – PC or Mac)
  4. Standard Resolution Keynote (.key – Mac)

Please note: this is to create the visual display for your trivia night attendees. It is recommend that you use a projector or TV large screen so all your attendees can see the written questions, images and videos you have tirelessly inserted into your Trivia Round.

Keep in mind that you will need to create a question sheet to accompany the digital display. These question sheets are completed by each team and handed back to the marker at the end of the Trivia Round. A Question Sheet Template is also available in the Marketplace. Read on for more detail about that product.

Trivia Round Question Sheet Template

Once you have completed the PowerPoint or Keynote file for displaying the questions and answers you will need to create a way for teams to fill in the answers. This template is your starting point.

  • When you download this product you will receive a Word document (.docx).
  • Open the Trivia Round ‘Answers’ file that you have just created in Keynote or PowerPoint. You will be referring back to this regularly throughout this process.
  • Start by matching the number of questions in the presentation to the number of lines on the answer sheet. Record the number and subset accordingly e.g. 1, 2, 3 A B C D, 4.
  • Allocate one line for each point given. E.g. For questions worth 3 points (requiring 3 answers), provide 3 lines.
  • The ‘Answer’ sheet will contain the worded answers.
  • The ‘Question’ sheet will should contain spaces for teams to fill in their answers.
  • Each line is created by using SHIFT + Hyphen on the keyboard – this will give it an underline look without anything on the line. It enables you to allocate the necessary amount of space required to answer the question too.
  • To allow ease of marking the answers on the night ensure that the ‘Questions’ and ‘Answers’ sheets match in terms of their formatting.
  • Once the digital versions are complete print enough copies of the question sheet for each team at your Quiz.
  • Print 1-2 copies of the answer sheet to refer to throughout the rounds and to mark teams’ responses.
