Today, I am going to embark on the second post of my series of how you can take standard quiz rounds and give you ideas on how to spice them up to make them more enjoyable. Sticking to the same format, in the same style, every single week will only result in your players becoming bored. You need to keep them on the edge of their toes, not knowing what is coming next and the best quizzes, and the most attended quizzes, are always those which have the most variety.
The problem with the music round is it easily becomes stale if all you do is pick at least ten different songs every week and get your players to identify the artists and track titles. It will soon become dull and won’t hold an interest for players who don’t’ excel at this. What you, as a trivia host paid to entertain, must do is find that balance that keeps everyone happy. I am today going to give you a few ideas on how to make your music round better….
Topics for Trivia – Making the Music Round Better – Give them an option!
If all you are going to do is play ten random songs and you are determined to stick to this, then try my idea here. The one problem with music rounds is pleasing all the players. When you have a wide range of players and age ranges in your audience then what you need to be doing is reflecting that in the music round. One idea I have used is to have two separate rounds…..One round you play 10 songs from say 1985 to present, and then 10 songs from pre 1985. The players can play each round but only the highest score counts….works well.
Topics for Trivia – Making the Music Round Better – Intros
You can easily download intro only pieces without vocals from online sites. It just adds some variety and mixes things up rather than just having the normal song. There are many songs identifiable by just the first few notes in the song. These are great song intros to utilize.
