A pretty good idea for its time and reasonably well done 26 July 2010
By Lurfy's Ma - Published on
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
The name "Flip Quiz" comes from the design. These "books" are spiral bound and have a stiff cardboard section that opens out to form a triangular stand like a small easel with the spiral binding on the top. This allows the cards (pages) to be flipped over. The cards are printed on both sides so two people can sit with the easel in between and quiz each other.

There are about 150 quizzes in four levels. Each card has 10-15 questions in several categories. The General Knowledge book has six categories: Natural World, History, Science and Maths, Geography, English, and General Knowledge. The History book also has six categories: Science & technology, The Arts, People in History, General Knowledge, Exploration and Discovery, and Warfare & Weapons. Each category has a little symbol or icon that identifies the category of each question.

The questions vary considerably in difficulty even with a level with substantial overlap. Maybe this was intentional to give the game some variability and unpredictability.

Level 1 is very basic. Some questions are: "Which bear has a white coat?" and "What do we call the U-shaped plate nailed to a horse's hoof?".

Level 2 is somewhat harder. Some questions are: "What is a census?" and "Who was Saladin?".

Level 3 is harder to categorize. Some questions include: "How many notes are there in an octave?" and "Of which family was Bonnie Prince Charlie?".

Level 4 is even harder to categorize. Some questions include: "Which stimulant is found in coffee and tea?" and "What is a cassowary?".

As far as I can tell, the higher levels have more questions that few people would know, but all have at least a few questions that just about anyone can get right. Again, maybe this is intentional so people do not get discouraged.

Overall, this is a pretty good game for its time. Especially for the price. I don't know what they cost originally. I paid about $2-$3 each used plus shipping. They seem to be fairly easy to come by for that price. If you have kids of about the same age who like quiz games, this would be a few bucks well spent.

This would make a great interactive game over the Internet.
They enjoyed the pics and interesting details 12 Feb. 2015

I purchased this book at our school book fair years ago. My kids were elementary school age at the time. They enjoyed the pics and interesting details. The Quiz book stood on the shelf for a few years before finding its way to the coffee table at our cabin where it has been a fixture for our family and friends for years. Our now early adult age kids sit down after a day at the cabin and say "Hit me with some trivia!" It has spawned great conversation and frantic recall...and requests for me to get another "new" book. Love the flip format with the answers on the opposite page so the reader doesn't have to dig somewhere in the back of the book to see who is right. Gotta admit...this purchase has been way more fun than I anticipated upon purchase.
