TV Pub Quiz Launches For Scottish Operators

An innovative new quiz game for pubs operators has launched in Scotland. Quiz the Nation – hosted by Gordon Burns, the legendary host behind the iconic Krypton Factor game show – aims to increase revenue, footfall and profits for pub operators in Scotland.

Presented every Sunday evening from November through Sky Channel 254, the new quiz is free of charge to pubs and allows players to play by themselves or in a team in the same pub, as well as nationally across the country to win a top prize of £1,000.

At the end of each round, quiz-goers will discover out their position both locally and nationally, meaning that even if they don’t win the top prize, they still have the chance to top the leader board.

To take part, simply download the Quiz the Nation app – available free of charge on smart phones and tablets –  pay the entry fee of £2.00 and watch the quiz from the pub TV.

Quiz the Nation has been created to be deliberately different from other quizzes – positioning itself as ‘the modern age quiz.’ Using much of the format of the Krypton Factor, it tests mental agility and speed of thought as well as general knowledge. Uniquely, the app also records player speed of response, so Googling the answer is no longer an option for quizgoers.

Following a four-week trial period, 97% of participants said they either liked or loved the format and would like to play again.

Gordon Burns, commented: ‘We are not out to replace the traditional pub quiz – far from it. In fact, we have been careful to retain much of what people love about pub quizzes but have simply evolved the concept into a new format; think Krypton Factor meets Who Wants to be a Millionaire. The pilots have proved that Quiz the Nation will increase footfall, revenue and profits for operators, so everyone’s a winner’
