Do we have to sign in?
No. The quiz will be live streamed on Facebook. All you have to do is like the Quizzic Alley page and, when the live stream starts on Wednesday, a notification will appear in your feed. Alternatively, go to our Facebook page, click on videos and you will find the live stream there. We also live stream on YouTube simulataneously and, as long as it stays live, YouTube is just fine. You can subscribe to our YouTube Channel and like our Facebook page to make sure you don’t miss any of our live streams.
Can we do the quiz if we don’t have a Facebook account?
You should be able to watch the quick on YouTube. However, YouTube has an policy of instantly cutting a live feed if there is a complaint… and complaints are common and appeals take time.
Can we enter as a team?
There is no “entering” this quiz. You just turn up and answer the questions. However, doing it as a team is highly recommended. Team up with family or friends living in the same house or team up online with your fellow Harry Potter fans. There are lots of ways to connect while you all watch the live stream. Create a Messenger group, try Skype, the Houseparty app, SnapChat or Google Hangouts. The possibilities are endless. If you have organised a team for the Wizards Quiz, make sure you drop your team’s name in the comments once we get underway.
Will there be prizes?
We often have a prize or two to give away but, in this format, it’s really hard to award a winner or winners. You can self-score, not keep score at all or just yell the answers at the screen. The Wizards’ Worldwide Pub Quiz is all about having fun, answering some questions and connecting with others. We generally give all participants a coupon or special deal for our online store but you have to stay for the end! What could it be THIS WEEK?
Can you see us?
This question has been asked a lot. No, we will not be able to see you during the live stream but you will be able to see us. Subsequently, we WILL be wearing pants which are, of course, optional for you… No photos though… I shouldn’t have said that!
Can we dress up?
Your house, your rules! But we lllooovvveee the idea of you guys dressing up in your wizarding regalia. Why not? Either way, dressed upn or not, we love to see photos of you doing the quiz. Share your photos on Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #wizardsquiz and tag @quizzicalley. We’ll choose one each week to win a $25 online shopping coupon.
Can anyone do the quiz?
Yes. Anyone from anywhere. Adults, kids, families, magical creatures, fantastic beats. All are welcome. Of course, this means that the quiz may not be as challenging as some of the die-hard Potterheads would like. Please bear with us as we really are attempting to make it fun for a very wide spectrum of the fandom. If you or your younger wizards are not yet past the first few books, try the earlier Kids’ Quiz which starts at 6pm.
What time will the pub quiz finish?
We’re starting at 7.30pm AEST and aiming to finish by 9pm. The Kids’ Quiz starts at 6pm and should finish by 7pm.
What is the time difference?
It depends where you are but Australia is ahead of just about anywhere in the world, except for our friends across the ditch in New Zealand and some Pacific Islands, all of whom are about two hours ahead. The time difference makes it a bit tough for our friends in North and South America but it will be morning in London and they love a good pub quiz, even for breakfast! For fans in Asia it will be afternoon and late morning in Africa.
Where is the answer sheet?
Use it for either quiz – just cross out the questions and rounds you won’t need for the Kids’ Quiz which is three rounds of eight questions.
You don’t NEED an answer sheet for either quiz – just use a piece of paper or shout your answers at the screen. You will be self-scoring so it doesn’t really matter.
