The Global Online Quiz was a worldwide mass participation pub quiz that aired as live online quizzes between March 2020 and January 2023. Each edition, thousands of players from all around the world competed against other local & global teams. We had a blast hosting close to three years of online quizzes and we loved getting to know so many wonderful quizzers from all over the globe; our very own online quizzing community! As of January 2023 we are no longer producing any new editions of the Global Online Quiz.
You’re welcome to enjoy re-watching any of the 50+ editions we have on our Youtube channel. Keep the fun going! Currently, we are working on developing new projects and we hope to see you all back in one of our live online events soon!

The road to victory!
A winning team always comes prepared.
Re-watch any of our 50+ Global Online Quiz editions and keep the fun going! We recommend 4 to 6 people on one team, the more diverse their backgrounds and interests, the better! Bring your team together, online or offline. Use conferencing software, a group chat, a phone call, your living room, a local bar or your favorite sports club.
Each quiz show was hosted live by a Number 42 quiz master. Now, you can re-watch any of our quizzes at any time you like! All quizzes are about 2 hours long. Questions are supported by on screen pictures, videos & audio clips. You can re-watch the quizzes on any device (television, smartphone, computer, etc.) at your preferred location, and at any time you like! Feel free to get creative with pool side televisions, cinema rooms and local pubs.
The quiz consists of 6 rounds, containing 10 questions each. Sometimes there are multiple answers per question. Each question is followed by some time to debate and write down your answer as a team. All you need is a pen and some paper, you can use our official answer sheets. Questions aren’t repeated after they’ve been asked, so you might want to take notes during the quiz. After each round you are given 2 more minutes to finalize your answers. After that: it’s straight on to the reveal of the answers for that round!
Time to see how you’ve done! You need to check your own answers and we trust you to be extremely honest and completely unbiased 😉 The quizmaster will tell you how many points you could have earned for each question. For questions with one answer, a correct answer is worth 1 full point or half a point if it’s almost correct, but not quite. We’ll leave the definition of ‘almost correct’ up to your best judgement. For questions with multiple answers it’s always half a point per correct answer. If you have to name 4 countries for one question, that question could earn you 2 points in total, for example. After checking all of the answers on this round write down the total amount of points scored at the top of the answer sheet.
At the end of the quiz, you add up all of your points for each round. This will be your total score. Great job! Go ahead and pat yourself on the back for a job well done. 😊
Curious how your team stacks up against other teams that played this quiz before? No shame in a little competitiveness, we totally get that! Just make note of the quiz edition number you played and look up the scores of that quiz on our Facebook page.
Did you have a good time? We sure hope so! Please consider making a contribution, a lot of time and effort have gone into making these quizzes.
