Saving UK Pubs, One Quiz at a Time

 

London, UK -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/19/2014 -- Pubs are the lifeblood of the local communities they serve. Successful pubs recognise they are a key part of the community and reflect the needs of the customers around them. Pub quizzes are a great way of bringing extra people in on those quieter days.

MyBigIQ® (www.mybigiq.com) has been created to respond to this challenge and has launched in the UK to help bring new people into their local and have fun competing in a great quiz. As a new generation of pub quiz it allows teams and individual players to compete against others in their local, and between pubs nationwide in real time, using a handheld device called a ‘Quickey®’.

With a number of pubs already live and new people through their doors, the service is now being rolled out nationwide. With over 60,000 licenced venues in the database it’s easy to find and nominate a location if its not running MyBigIQ already. http://www.mybigiq.com/find-a-quiz/

Raspberry Pi is now on the pub quiz menu. MyBigIQ uses cloud based technologies, a small computing device and patent pending systems to bring content to the venues. This allows incredible flexibility and any content, static images; videos and music can be presented on screens and over speakers in enabled venues.

Best quiz players on board. Working closely with MyBigIQ is Jesse Honey, World Quiz Champion 2012 and Mastermind series winner 2010. Based on his years of experience setting quizzes, Jesse is making sure that the questions are correct, fun, relevant, not too easy but not too difficult either. "When you go to your local for a pub quiz, it's so important that the questions are pitched at the right level so the quiz is fun and accessible to a range of abilities", says Jesse. "Also, the questions and answers need to be fair and accurate, especially when there's money to be won. I'm advising MyBigIQ to make sure the quizzes are of a consistently high quality appropriate for a nationwide game".
