Tiebreaker questions are the ultimate trivia questions. They are not designed to be easy but they are designed to crown your champion.

So how do they work? Rarely, a correct answer is given, as we said these tie break questions for quizzes are not simple. Rather the answers you will be given will be more of a ‘guesstimate’ with the closest answer being the winner.

Generally, being over means bust, but it is up to you how you prefer to decide who is closest.
