Hello there. It's Saturday, which means the Pub Quiz HQ weekly newsletter was sent out to readers first thing this morning.

 

As always, it contained all our latest quizzes and podcast episodes plus a dig into the archive for some quiz rounds that will come in handy this week.

 

It's free to receive and you can sign up for next Saturday's right now. Ensure you get our latest content straight in your inbox!

 

I would also like to take a moment to say thank you to quizzers who have taken the time to buy me a coffee!

 

All the money goes towards keeping the site online. We'll keep the quizzes coming over the winter.

 

Our podcast series continued, with two further episodes, both under ten minutes long so perfect for some quick quizzing. You can find it on Spotify and iTunes.

 

Here's a set of nine questions about things that occurred this week.

 

Happy quizzing!

Adam
