Quiz Styles to Help Break the Ice
When you’re presenting to a new group, delivering an icebreaker is one of the best ways to make an introduction and help participants feel comfortable. Why not do it with an icebreaker quiz?
You might deliver quiz questions that are funny, or ones everyone knows the answers to to start. Multiple choice quizzes can also be a great way to get a feel for how your audience thinks or how you might need to adjust your presentation to better align with the group.

4, 3, 2, 1…
Adding a little pressure to your quiz is a sure way to add some excitement into your presentation or meeting. Start by explaining how long participants will have to answer each question thrown their way and then read out the question before starting the timer.
You can even up the stakes by having the question answer times become shorter and shorter as you go. Or have a little extra fun and add in some intense music to set the tone.
Trivia Style Quizzes
Trivia is always a classic when it comes to games with family and friends. Bringing it into your meeting as one of your fun new quiz styles is a sure way to shake things up.
Try finding trivia questions that keep things light and fun while also still relating to your discussed topics. Participants usually love anything from music history to pop culture.
A Quiz for Each Season
Whether it’s Christmas, Halloween, St. Patrick’s Day or even Valentine’s Day, a quiz to match the season is sure to bring some excitement into your presentations. Not only does it bring fun into the room, it’s something most people will be thinking about or celebrating. Finding this common ground is a great way to bring people together.
It could be season related quiz questions, or maybe even some custom graphics that will really get everyone in the spirit.
Numerical Quiz Styles
One of the most unique ways to make more serious, numerical questions fun is to make them into a quiz. You might use statistical questions, or test your audience’s math skills with questions about money.
Numerical quizzes help to get people’s brains working which both challenges them and keeps them on their toes.
Quizzes to do with Geography
Geographical quizzes can be fun to incorporate into your presentation. They can also be very educational depending on the topic of the presentation you are giving.
Test audience members on their geographical culture, or present them with questions about different areas around the world. You might even deliver a geographical quiz about favorite places to visit in order for participants to get to know each other better.
Competition Infused Quizzes
If there’s one way to get people excited in their seats, it’s with adding a bit of competition into your quiz. You might offer a prize for those who can get to the top of the leaderboard to motivate them to participate and win.
Just be sure to be clear on how the scoring works at the beginning of the quiz so audience members know exactly what they need to do to win.
The last quiz style we have to offer is a challenging quiz, or ‘mastermind’ type of quiz. This type of quiz involves testing the minds of your audience members with IQ test like questions.
You might start with the easier questions and then progress the quiz by delivering more difficult questions as you go. Just be sure to think about your audience first when putting these questions together. If the questions are too difficult, the fun can be taken out of the game quickly!
Having Fun with Different Quiz Styles
The most important thing when it comes to the different quiz styles? Make sure you incorporate a little bit of fun! Having a little fun with your presentations and meetings through quizzes is one of the best ways to keep audience members smiling and motivated to contribute for times to come.
