The MahaQuizzer Quiz Contest. Today is Last Day to Register

The MahaQuizzer will be held simultaneously across nine cities in India on Sunday, May 27th. The cities are Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Thiruvananthapuram, Bhubaneshwar, Pune, Kolkata, New Delhi and Mumbai. Click here for details of venue and contact person in your city.

It’s organized by The Karnataka Quiz Association and this is the third edition. It’s a general quiz contest open to individual competitors. It’s a written quiz where you attempt 150 questions in 90 minutes.

Personally, I’m not excited. I like the mixture of written and verbal rounds. It’s ain’t fun if you don’t bang that buzzer button. Also, its a solo quiz. I’m a team man. But hey, that’s just me.

If this sounds interesting, then register by sending an email to kqaquizzes@gmail.com with the subject line as “Mahaquizzer – City name “. Or alternatively call the contact person in your city.

May 25th is the last day to register. Yup, that’s today. Quick.
