Steps:

There are a few options making the quiz a fun game:

1.tic-tac-to: (2 groups) each square is a question.

2.scaventure hunt: hide the questions around your sniff. split your chanichim into groups. The hidden question can be the clue for the next place or if they answer correctly the madrich leads them to the next place.

3.the king of trivia : each group chooses a category and level of question.if they answer correctly they get points (high level more points).the winner is the group who has most of the points.

4.Hollywood squares: the madrich is going to read the question and the fun begins: every one of the extra madrichim is going to have to come up with his own creative answers and the trick will be to make it sound as convincing and funny as you possibly can. If you cannot be funny, its important that you at least be convincing. The group is going to choose a person, and if they get it wrong, the other group gets the square automatically DO NOT SHOW ANY SIGN OF WHO HAS THE RIGHT ANSWER BEFORE YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO.
