Whether it's a general knowledge quiz you're after or something more specific (entertainment questions, anyone?), we've rounded up a selection of easy quiz questions, for those just looking for an excuse to have a drink. Bottoms up!

Look, we get it; we've all done a fair amount of quizzing over the past two years and you might find yourself feeling a bit quizzed-out, but now that we can see each other in person we're also realising that we might need a bit of a structure to socialising. Because we've basically forgotten how to do it... Which is why an easy quiz is the perfect solution - you'll all get full marks and not have to fight over the answers, plus you'll get that all important time in the diary with friends and family. And hey, isn't that what it's all about?! (Becoming the ultimate quiz master also doesn't hurt...)
