What is FunkQuest ?

FunkQuest is a fun interactive online conversation game that features five rounds.

Funksters (players) view a board containing 20 individual icons (pictures)

 Funksters select an icon from the board which most tweaks their interest.
 

Each Funky icon, when chosen reveals a Funky question, which may or may not be related to the icon.

Potential Funksters, have to think on their feet, answering the question within the strict time limit of one minute.  

We are looking for answers which might include; insights, useful and amusing snippets, and things we just didn't know.  

We call this FUNK.

What's so good about FUNKQUEST ?

The strict time limit does not allow funksters to give; multi-headed, long, complicated and self indulgent stories -
just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!

You get to hear new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network, which truly qualifies as FUNKY.

Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.
