QU12 is an open, fair, exciting quiz, in which individual players have the opportunity to participate in the perfect blend of real quiz combined with just enough jeopardy to give a half-decent player a real shot of winning. You are welcome to join the facebook group by clicking here
Over the years it has thrown up some great champions, notably:
Some truly remarkable players have particpated, including multiple Mastermind and Fifteen to One Champions, Eggheads and Chasers, so this year I'm hoping we can add Countdown Champions to the list.
Whilst still in the throes of lockdown this year's series will take place (on-line), starting on Friday 28th May, with 12 (weekly) qualifiers and a final (live or on-line TBA) on Saturday 28th August (Bank holiday weekend).
The easiest thing to do is just turn up and play, Zoom screen on, I promise you will get the hang of each round immediately, but there are a jazillion films you can watch, and if you want to know the format...
Using SpeedQuizzing software and pending numbers
At this point players revert to using Zoom Chat for their buzzers, as the nature of QU12 is only the first player in takes the spoils. Scores are reset to zero for the beginning of each round.
Either £3 for a game or £20 all-in and that's it! Either you qualify for the final, or you get loads of quizzes until you do. From Game 7 onwards a surcharge of £40 will be placed on anyone who qualifies for the final who is not a season ticket holder. I want to discourage opportunistic tactical entry. I really hope that whatever method to pay you choose, it will just be excellent value for money.
If the final is live, the winner of each round will get £40 pending their attendance
If the final is online, it'll be winner takes all.
The overall winner recieves £500 or the take, whichever is least, plus a trophy, plus their name in the Pantheon.
Overseas competitors. The default is if lockdown is lifted it will be a live final, hence the £40 (travel allowance) prize. I hate leaving things uncertain, but, there may be ways to allow you to play in the final, but I'm not promising. I will exercise prcautionary principle, but whatever, leave that Saturday afternoon free.
