The most ridiculous jackpot question I ever heard, bar none, was "How many islands make up the nation known as Indonesia?" No leeway was allowed, you had to have the answer spot on! :roll:

The guy who sets the quiz at the pub we go to has one of those quizbooks with about 500 quizzes, each with twenty questions and after the quiz he asks the winners to pick a page number and then a number between 1 and 20. That question is then asked to all the teams who didn't win for them to shout out the answer. You are only allowed one shout per team. The correct answer gets the team a bottle ofwine.

Thats a good idea.....apart from if they tried it at some of the quizzes I go to you would have to shout pretty loud to win

we have to shout loud not because it's noisy but because the QM is a bit mutton.
