Quiz Bowl

Quiz bowl (or Quizbowl) refers to a family of games of questions and answers on topics of human knowledge including history, literature, and science. It is commonly played by college or high school students, although some participants begin in middle or even elementary school. Participants benefit from exposure to a broad range of school and cultural subjects, increased memorization and study skills, and an improved ability to cooperate and work in teams.

The game is typically played with a lockout buzzer system between two teams, most commonly consisting of four or five players each. A moderator reads questions to the teams, whose players endeavor to buzz in first with the correct answer, scoring points for their team.

Quiz bowl is also known by various other names, such as Academic Bowl, Academic Challenge, Academic League, Battle of the Brains, Brain Bowl, BrainBusters, Brain Game, It's Academic, Knowledge Bowl, Scholar Quiz Bowl, Scholastic Bowl, and Scholar's Bowl.

Famous quotes containing the word bowl:

    Clearly, some time ago makers and consumers of American junk food passed jointly through some kind of sensibility barrier in the endless quest for new taste sensations. Now they are a little like those desperate junkies who have tried every known drug and are finally reduced to mainlining toilet bowl cleanser in an effort to get still higher.
    Bill Bryson (b. 1951)
