Friday Fun: Who fancies a pub quiz?

As much of the world is on lockdown or in isolation over COVID-19, it's interesting that my randomly assigned time for Friday Fun should fall when it does.  

In my spare time, my "side hustle" if you will, is to work as a host of pub quiz nights.  Obviously, with us all on lockdown we can't get together for me to host these.  With an attendance of ranging from 50-100 people, twice a week, that's a lot of people in my area who no longer have that social outlet. 

So I have taken to hosting them online and opening them up to anyone, at the same day/times as I usually would, via Facebook Live.  (Just for fun, no prizes, just helping our collective mental wellbeing and a friendly face).

I am also sharing picture rounds (like the 3 rounds attached) as posts as well. 

Have a go at the attached, share with your friends, family, colleagues, and late Friday (UK time) I will post the answers in the comments. 

If you'd like to join my live broadcasts, please like/follow my Facebook page here, it'll be every Thursday at 9pm and every Sunday at 8pm UK time! - alcohol optional ;-) >> https://www.facebook.com/BigQuizLive

How long does the quiz run for?

Typical run time so far has been 1 hour 20 mins.  I do 3 rounds random subject, with answers revealed after each one and a quick review of peoples scores if you want to share too.

@Chris_Whitehead this is a really great idea!

I'm not usually good at these types of things, but Bond movies I do know very well.

I'll avoid posting spoilers so others can have some fun!

Love it! I would definitely lose, but thanks for the chuckle! And thanks for doing what you're doing to help with our collective mental health!

I like that. I don't even know all the people and didn't get what to do at the third puzzle but now I want to know the answers.

For the 3rd picture round, each picture begins with the letter A (in English). Guess what it is for 1 point each. In fairness some pictures are more well know in the UK / US then others.

I am definitely going to fail at this but I'll give it a try @Chris_Whitehead Maybe I'll get my husband to help me. :) 

Please do, share where ever you like. Good luck.

@Chris_Whitehead is the third round album names or band names?

@Chris_Whitehead I get it, it's lots of different things! 

Name the band for each letter. 

SPOILER ALERT!  ANSWERS HERE! 

The years are provided for some, in case you need a "tie-breaker" - two or more teams score the same amount, I use these to see who can guess the closest to the correct answer and whoever is gets an extra point/wins.

Let me know how you get on!
