At Quiz Night, teams (of friends, family, co-workers, others) seek to out-score other teams on questions in roughly 10 diverse categories together with a picture quiz (more on this later). The questions are devised by an experienced group of Quiz Masters. The sought-after trophy in this contest of wits, knowledge and guesswork is a glamorous cup of possible historic significance – well, at least 10 years old.
