  1. A quiz team’s success can sometimes rely on (or, more likely, be hampered by) copious amounts of alcohol, and in the pub setting, what better way to celebrate the boozy camaraderie than with these drink based names?

    • Yes, we (of a certain age) were the Saga Louts but the quizmaster pronounced us the
      “Sayger Loots” which made that pointless!

  2. Crouching lady, hidden cucumber
    Quiz on my Face
    Spanish Inquizition
    Quiz off
    Quizzly Bears
    Quiz Me Like you mean it
    Titanic Swim team
