Surprise! We're back in lockdown, which might mean you're participating in a lot of virtual quizzes again. We know, we know. You're probably close (if not already feeling) quizzed out (what do you mean you've done 3000 quizzes? Surely not!) But there's no denying it's a decent way to keep in touch with friends and family, so maybe all you need to do is switch up the format.

Maybe you need to start doing your quizzes in teams, or make them a bit harder. Maybe you need to make the rounds a bit more creative. Or maybe you just need to introduce some of the best true or false quiz questions, and use it as a basic excuse for getting some screen time in with your loved ones.

OK, so the way this is going to work. You'll be given a statement in the 'question' section, that can be answered with either true or false. The 'answer' will then simply state if the fact is true or false. Nominate one quiz master to read out the statements, and then get your participants to jot down whether they think it's true or false. There's no bonus points for extra information, but that doesn't mean you can't offer little virtual pats on the back, eh?
