Stockport Quiz League –
Withington Quiz League
Following various contacts over the
past few months (not least of which was a team from
Stockport nicking our End of Season Quiz Evening prizes)
we have agreed to have some inter-league quizzing in the
2007/8 season: 1) a pre-season inter-league one-off game
(to be called the WIST Cup) and 2) a short WIST
Champions League tournament to take place during the
Wednesday September 12th
8.15pm at Heaton Moor RUFC on Green Lane, Heaton Moor.
Each league will select a team of 6
players. Half the quiz will be Stockport-style rounds
and half WithQuiz-style. Each league will be
responsible for setting the rounds that are in their own
style. Each league will provide a QM for their own
questions. I suggest that as many substitutions as
teams wish may be made at half time. And, of course, as
many spectators as possible!!

Question Formats & Scoring
Each quiz has
four rounds. There are no individual questions.
Round 1 consists of thirty ‘paired’
questions which are asked to each team alternately.
Teams score two points for a correct answer. In the
event of a wrong answer the question will be offered to
the other team for the chance to score a ‘bonus’ point.
Round 2 consists of ten questions.
Both teams must provide written answers for all ten
questions. If both teams give a correct answer they
score one point each, if only one team answers correctly
they score two points.
Rounds 3 and 4 are of the same format
as rounds 1 and 2.
8 rounds of 8 questions with
questions asked in turn to the 4 individuals on each
team. Scoring is 2 points without conferring, one point
if conferred, and one point to the opposing team on a
