A graphic showing a Bitmoji of Chris and the text "It's ChrisQuiz time!"

This year I became one of Hwb Narberth's pub quiz host team. Two or three times a month, you'll find me behind the mic testing the knowledge of Narberth!

Here's an archive of results of my quiz - sorry, I don't have access to results of the other quiz hosts. I'm also working to make some of the quizzes available to play online, so I'll be linking to those where possible too.

Think you can beat the scores below?

If you're in Pembrokeshire and want to come along, quiz night is usually every Tuesday with registration opening between 7 and 7.30 and the quiz starting from 7.30. Normally £2 per player, up to six players per team. There are the occasional changes, especially for the monthly charity quiz, so check out the Hwb Facebook page for updates.

I host the quiz in rotation with other hosts, so check the Facebook page, or below, for when you'll next find me posing the questions.

My next quiz

My next ChrisQuiz is 7th May.

Money raised for charity

Starting with the 27th June quiz, proceeds from my quizzes is being donated to my chosen charity, Cancer Research UK.

Since then, £749 has been raised - thank you to everyone who takes part!

23 January 2024
Table round: Brand slogans
Music round 1: Classic TV ads
Music round 2: Charts 23 January

For this quiz I tried something different, based on the findings of this research paper, I introduced a 'head start' handicap system.

Based on previous average scores, the number of questions, and the number of players in a team, each team is given a head start number of points that get added on to the total. The more players, the less your head start.

I think I'll try the handicap system again for my next quiz, then review it after that.

  1. Boutros Boutros Ghali, Buono estente - 85/101 + 16 = 101
  2. Nella & Steve - 36 + 31 = 67
