How To Play

speedquizzing letters question

Letters Questions

This is the most common question type in SpeedQuizzing. In this question type, we're looking for the FIRST letter of your answer.

Keep In Mind, however...

If we ask for someones name, we want the FIRST letter of their FIRST name. (e.g. Paul McCartney would be "P")

We don't use titles in SpeedQuizzing, (e.g. "Queen Elizabeth" would be answered "E").

The words "the" and "a" are far too common, so we just ignore these words. (e.g. The Lion King would be answered "L", and "A Quiet Place" would be answered "Q").
