What on earth is the QF1 League?
For the past two years, we’ve been running this format called the QF1 at our fortnightly meetings. It’s a light prelims style set of 30 general questions that participants attempt lone-wolf. It’s received a whole lotta love so we thought we’d share some of it with you.
Every other week, we will send across the QF1 set to interested quizzing centers – college/corporate/hostel quiz clubs, apartment associations, zoos and other places where creatures with opposable digits congregate to respond to questions. You can even take part in the comfort of your own bat cave – all you need is an e-mail ID, a device to run quiz ppts off, pens and papers to attempt the quiz. Once you are done taking part, simply send in your scores along with those of others who took the quiz with you. We will collate and track the scores from all over.
Do I have to pay for this?
Nope. It’s completely free. Just make sure you let people know that the set has been sent across by QFI and call out the setter’s name.
What if I google/discuss answers with my dog/take performance enhancing drugs/indulge in other kinds of shady behavior?
Go ahead. All scores will be published on our site. People will know who you are and vote for you to become supreme overlord of all Marvel and DC multiverses. You may even be recognized as the person of the millennium ahead of Ric Flair and MK Gandhi. Subhash Ghai will make a biopic on your life.
So what’s in it for me?
Acing the QF1 does not guarantee anything except bragging rights. Depending on the response, we may give you a prize. Or a biscuit.
We won’t be able to take the quiz on Sunday? Can we still host it?
Sure. Just send us your scores by the succeeding Sunday if you’d like them to feature on the leader board.
How do we sign up?
