Kitchen Table Quiz HERES OUR SIX STEPS TO SETTING UP YOUR VIRTUAL TABLE QUIZ STEP ONE: CHOOSE YOUR APP This is an easy part there's Zoom, Google Hangouts, Houseparty, and Whatsapp?. Any of the above could work for a quiz but, Zoom is great, for up to 100 people (but you are limited to 40mins) Google Hangouts allows up to 150 people in a chat, but limits its video calls to only 25 people per call. Houseparty's limit is eight and Whatsapp calls only allow four people at a time. STEP TWO: INVITE PARTICIPANTS AND ASK THEM TO DONATE Invite by Whatsapp is great. Yes this is a table quiz where phone use is encouraged. Send them One in Fours donate link €5 a team would be great (every cent makes a difference) STEP THREE: DECIDE TEAMS Some of the households dialling into the quiz might be solo isolators, some might be in larger groups. Those who are in individual households might want to team up with other solo dwellers and, in that case, they should be allowed message each other to confer during the quiz. STEP FOUR: WRITE THE QUIZ Best bet is to do six rounds max. Try to create questions that take into account all the different interests and age groups involved in the quiz. (And I'm sure it goes without saying, but nobody wants to discuss COVID-19 right now, so maybe leave those questions out for now :) ) STEP FIVE: GET CREATIVE Creative rounds are always a giggle so why not get your teams to make tinfoil hats or to draw something? Another big hit is a round on capital cities or maybe even a spelling bee. Each team nominates a member to represent them and the rest is up to fate. The nominated representative writes out the answers and each representative must upload them into the chat before the answers are revealed (that means no last minute corrections). STEP SIX: MARKING AND PRIZES There are a few options here. The quiz-master could mark them themselves using the answer sheets sent in after each round. Or, alternatively, people could mark their own. Everyone is a winner when with a charity quiz: because of the impact you will make on One in Fours work. 4 team donating €5 each would means €20 for One In Four and will contribute towards keeping our phone lines open for new survivors. The winning team might decide to make everyone dinner when social distancing is over. Send us some pictures , share the joy .
