Quizzing – whether at a dinner party, in the pub, or on a hen do – is a peak British activity, and we're not afraid to admit that we're pretty damn good at it, too!

For those in the know, there are so many different variations of quizzes, from multiple choice, to picture quizzing, and of course, the good old true or false option, which we're about to take a deep dive into for your next game night.

OK, so here is how it works: You'll be given a statement in the 'question' section, that can be answered with either true or false. The 'answer' will then simply state if the fact is true or false. Nominate one quiz master to read out the statements, and then get your participants to jot down whether they think it's true or false.

There are no bonus points for extra information, but that doesn't mean you can't give your bestie an affectionate tap on the back, eh?

And when you're done here, why not try out some of our other quiz options? We're particularly fond of our Kardashian Kuesitions round because honestly, there's so much to learn about Kim, Kourtney, Khloé and co. Like, who even knew Kris Jenner uses black toilet paper?!
