Choosing a pub quiz team name is no mean feat, it defines you and represents everything you stand for and believe in. A poor choice of name can throw an entire game – too safe and you blend into the background, but cross the line and you’ll receive nothing but disapproving glares for the duration of the event. It’s a big decision to make and says a lot about the type of contestant you are.
You have absolutely no chill when it comes to a pub quiz and have been known to take things a little too seriously, which can result in a heated discussion with the quiz master – because you were definitely entitled to that extra half point. Should a neighbouring team even think about consulting the internet you’ll be on them before they can say Google. Rules are there for a reason people!
You started drinking hours before the quiz because you’re absolute lads, obviously. You’ve low expectations of winning, but it is essential you come up with the best name of the night, and every time it’s read out you giggle like a school girl. Win or lose, it doesn’t matter to you, because if you’re honest with yourself you’re really here for the pints and bants #lads
If this is your team name, chances are you’re either a group of mums out on ladies’ night or teachers – sometimes both. It’s likely you’ll have a ‘whooper’ in the group who goes off every time you get a question right or when your name is called. You’ll undoubtedly sing along in the music round and always refer to your group as ‘the girls’.
A seasoned professional doesn’t mess around with punny names – you mean business and you’re here to win. Chances are you reserved your table weeks ago – always the same table - and you’re on a first-name basis with the quiz master. You’ve won more pub quizzes than you’ve had hot dinners, so when you drop a point in the last round it’s enough to ruin your evening.
You’re a big kid at heart and no matter how many times you get knocked down you come back the following week as excited and as optimistic as ever. Admittedly you may not be the slickest quizzer around – it wouldn’t be unheard of for you to shout out an answer (probably the wrong one) or get tempted to take ‘just a quick look’ at Google, but it’s the taking part that counts, right?
