3 Tips to Personalise your Family Christmas Quiz

#1: Make it a Team Quiz

This family Christmas quiz is solo by default, but you can opt for a team one if you want to provoke a mini festive war between the two sides of the family.

Turning a solo family Christmas quiz into a team one on AhaSlides.
  1. To do this, click on ‘settings’ in the top bar and come down to ‘quiz settings’.
  2. Select the checkbox that says ‘play as teams’.
  3. Choose the number of teams, the team size and the scoring rule for the teams.

Click on ‘set team names’ to open another pop-up box. Here you can write the names of your teams (either ones you assign yourself or ones invented on quiz day by your participants).

Setting the team names for a family Christmas quiz

When it’s time for players to join the quiz, each will choose their team on their devices.

#2: Change the Difficulty

By definition, it’s hard to please everyone with a family Christmas quiz. Still, you can give it a go!

The questions in our template are a mixture of easy and difficult, but you can make any question easier and harder with a few simple changes:

Making it Easier

  • You can change any slides in which participants must type the answer into a multiple choice question. Simply change this in the ‘type’ tab of the slide and offer a multiple choice option.
  • Add clues in the description box of any difficult question. These will show up on the players’ devices.
  • Add clues through background images. You can choose these in the ‘background’ tab, either by uploading your own or choosing from image and GIF libraries.

Making it Harder

  • Make it a solo quiz. It’s always harder figuring this stuff out on your own!
  • Turn any multiple choice slides into type answer slides.
  • Add your own more difficult questions. Speaking of which….

#3: Add Your Own Questions

Want the good times to keep rolling? Well, there’s no slide limit to an AhaSlides presentation – you can keep quizzing until the new year!
