How the quiz works

To participate in our fundraiser quiz, you need to donate 5 euros by clicking “Donate to Register”. We will directly link the organizations so we don’t serve as middlewomen for the money and it goes directly to the intended charity. During the live quiz we will run a poll and ask if you have a preferred organization or are fine with splitting it up evenly between the organizations. Based on this we will allocate the money. Check out the video on the left (or on top if you are reading this on a mobile device), the quiz FAQs and our Step-by-Step Guide to Quizzing Without Borders (PDF) to learn more.

Our three supported charities

100% of the proceeds of our remote quiz go to charity. Vote on your favourite charity during the live quiz. We will allocate the money accordingly.

Antje Heiermann & Anita Visvanath

Meet the quizmasters

Hi, we are Anita and Antje and we met in a beer garden in Nuremberg, Germany, in 2012. Soon after that we teamed up as Manic Mondays with a few others in Big Kev’s Pub Quiz in the Kofferfabrik in Fürth and became really good friends. Since many of us had to stay at home during the pandemic, we decided to bring some quizzing entertainment to you, and now we keep on going. We’d be the happiest if people from all around the world tune in – and if we are able to raise a little for our three charities.

Our quizzing guiding principles

Have fun across borders

We want people from all over the world
to have a good time together.
Quiz questions are of global nature
and in English with German translation.

For young and old

We are open to quizzers of all ages.
The youngest quizzer is 4, the oldest 80.
In addition to the international diversity,
our age mix makes us proud. 

Do good

We aim to raise funds for causes close
to our hearts. Let's do some magic together
while having fun at the same time.
No one has ever become poor by giving.

The nephew's paintings

A quizzers' favorite: One painting question per quiz. Dali, Van Gogh and Warhol.

What our quizzers are saying

  • "I didn't rate you a 10 because that means unquestionable, unblemished perfection, which, by its nature, is an unachievable ideal : ) . I rated you the next best thing : ) . In seriousness, I cannot offhand think of a way to improve the quiz. It was conducted very smoothly and very pleasantly, so kudos to you."

  • "Thanks for a great quiz to the quizmasters! See you for the next one."

  • "War wieder ein super fun Quiz, vielen Dank, dass ihr immer so viel Mühe und Motivation reinsteckt, das Quiz auf die Beine zu stellen!! 👏👏👏 Freun uns"
