and see who comes out on top.
INFORMATION CENTRE

The League Matches are played Monday to Friday for four weeks, starting on the first Monday of each month. Players are organised into leagues of 20 people and will play a head-to-head match against each player in their league once during the month. The 20th day is a final event for the leaders of the leagues.

One-Day Specials are one-off quiz events that will take place every day on just about every subject imaginable. We welcome your suggestions for One-Day Special quizzes and actively encourage you to provide them for your 2020 Quiz mates to enjoy.

Both quizzes involve strategy through allocating points to the questions as well as testing players' knowledge. All questions are sent out by email after you've played them if you'd like to receive them. The rules can be found here.

Combined, these quizzes give you at least 400 questions every month.

Cheating will spoil the game and so it is not allowed. We run the main 2020 Quiz leagues on an invitation-only basis in order to prevent cheating. All players must have taken part in at least two proctored IQA events within the past year in order to be eligible to join so we have some empirical data on them.

The questions from the World Quizzing Championships 2012 and a couple of the Hot 100 sets are now available on Kindle. Instead of doing a 'Questions' section and an 'Answers' section, we've put them into a 'Questions' section and a 'Questions with Answers' section so you can use them to test yourself and to test each other more easily. In the WQC book, you'll even find out which questions the highest-scoring person in each genre got wrong - and why.

You don't need to have a Kindle to read the books. They have a free app here that will allow you to read them on most devices
