We all did a lot of quizzing over the past two years, but that doesn't mean we're feeling completely quizzed out just yet. Especially since we can now hold games nights and quizzes IRL, we just need to switch up the formats from time-to-time.

Maybe you need to start doing you own at-home pub quizzing, or throw in a few emoji rounds, or a few Kardashian questions. Or maybe you just need to introduce some of the best true or false quiz questions.

OK, so the way this is going to work. You'll be given a statement in the 'question' section, that can be answered with either true or false. The 'answer' will then simply state if the fact is true or false. Nominate one quiz master to read out the statements, and then get your participants to jot down whether they think it's true or false. There are no bonus points for extra information, but that doesn't mean you can't offer little virtual pats on the back, eh?
