One evening in March, 2020, Mike Roberts, a UK citizen based in Barcelona (Spain), decided to run a myQuiz event for his Facebook friends during the Covid-19 lockdown. He was stunned by the reaction. His talent for devising clever questions that appeal to all ages and interests, coupled with the exciting real-time format, had people hooked from the start. They wanted more … so he made it a daily thing.
Almost six months later, the quiz is still running. Every day at 11pm CET, players from around the world have been competing against each other in what has become the highlight of many people's days. As of September, 160+ quizzes have been played and counting… Mike creates about a third of them, and the players themselves take turns making the rest. "We have the user-friendliness of the MyQuiz tool to thank for that" he says. "That and Wikipedia!"
