PTQ places a great deal of importance on the accuracy of its questions. Our suggestion to the host in the face of a player query is to hold firm and stick with the answer provided. If you think it's justified, check the answer yourself or with us and let the players know at the next quiz night.
Players query answers from time to time but in the vast majority of cases it is their memory at fault rather than an incorrent answer. We have a policy that if you find a question with what we confirm is a wrong answer we will add credit to your account (see below).
Through this and our own constant checking we are very confident that our questions are accurate. However, we cannot guarantee that all are 100% correct and answers can change, especially in certain categories such as sport.
If there is an error, it's important to keep things in perspective. The quiz night is meant to be a fun night out so it's up to the host to deal with the situation and smooth it over. That might mean marking every team's answer as correct for that question or blaming us ('an independent contractor') and removing the question from the quiz night.
