I've used many variants of this quiz for several age groups (and even for adults at a trivia night!). Contestants compete to identify 12 celebrities only from photos of their eyes. You'd be surprised how in some cases this is pretty easy ... but in others the contestants will be slapping their heads in frustration!
I chose celebrities which are familiar to 12-14 year olds with the occasional curve ball of a familiar face which they might not know (i.e. Marilyn Monroe, Hugh Laurie). I tried to choose globally known celebrities, though in the past I’ve been successful making similar quizzes including local politicians, royalty and sports stars.
Often I use this as a ‘between rounds’ quiz game during Trivia nights: I leave it on the table for contestants to work on while marking the answers of trivia rounds. The answers are then collected at the end of the quiz.
This set includes three games. Each game includes a game card featuring 12 well known celebrities (36 all up), answer sheets and an answers Powerpoint.
