We are looking for a creative individual or team of individuals to provide 1000 (original or harvested) trivia questions across these 10 categories:
Art & Literature
Food & Drink
Each question needs to have 4 possible answers as well as two hints to rule out two of the answers and one hint to indicate the correct answer. Questions need to be timeless in nature, e.g. “Touchstone is a character in which Shakespearean play?” versus a question such as, “Who is the President of the United States?”.
Here is an example of what we are looking for:
Question: What was the name of the captain in Star Trek Voyager?
Correct Answer: Kathryn Janeway
Incorrect Answer 1: Jean-Luc Picard
Incorrect Answer 2: James T. Kirk
Incorrect Answer 3: Marina Sirtis
Hint 1: It’s not tea time
Hint 2: Don’t pick me
Hint 3: Go this way
Questions must be verifiable and freely distributable, without any licensing issues, as they are to be included in a purchasable software package.
We expect the database to be provided in an Excel spreadsheet, one question per row, with these attributes: category, question, correct answer, incorrect answer 1, incorrect answer 2, incorrect answer 3, hint 1, hint 2, and hint 3. The maximum length of each question is 160 characters; the maximum length of each answer and each hint is 40 characters.
Please provide sample questions/answers in your proposal.
