Life After Mastermind

We hope you’ve been enjoying our blog since we launched a few weeks ago.

There are loads of good quiz blogs out there, and we’ll do our best to highlight some of our favourites from time-to-time.

For starters, we think that readers of the QuizQuizQuiz blog will enjoy David Clarke’s ‘Life After Mastermind‘ blog. We particularly enjoy his blog for the blow-by-blow accounts of the main serious UK quiz shows (Mastermind, University Challenge, Only Connect, Brain of Britain – shows that many of our team have done well on) and also for his tales of quiz participation and quiz setting.

‘Life After Mastermind’ also includes great swathes of quiz questions most weeks to keep your quiz brain cells sharp.

What’s your favourite quiz blog?


Quiz show parodies

I don’t watch a vast number of quiz shows on TV anymore (apart from Only Connect), although  “UK TV Quiz shows” was my chosen specialist subject on ‘The People Versus’ back in about 2000.

I do enjoy a good quiz show parody though, and they don’t come along all that often.

Here are my favourites, all very different and marvellous in different ways. Enjoy.

1. The Two Ronnies’ Mastermind is very funny although it does lose momentum a bit towards the end

2. Adam and Joe’s Quizzlestick is pure genius, and if this leaves you confused, then read the UKGameshows review

3. Alex Zane’s Cleverness Game is my favourite, although the cruellest to the contestants…

4. I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue: The Quiz of Quizzes is perhaps less well known, but very amusing indeed (although possibly not an ISIHAC classic).

Have we missed any good ones?
