Now That's What I Call A Music Quiz is a collection of three games based on pop music from the 1960's through to the 2000's. All games are played by one to four teams or players and there is a tutorial section for each voiced by Mark Goodier though he does not appear on screen at any point. The games available are:
Top 40: This is a game for one to four players or teams and the objective is to travel up a ladder from the fortieth place to the number one slot. Players do this by answering questions which are classed as easy, medium or hard and, if the player answers correctly, they move up the ranking by one, two or three positions respectively.
Most questions are individual questions, i.e. Only the current player or team can answer but some questions allow anyone to shout out the answer. If the question is answered by the current team then they advance as normal but if an opposing player/team answers then the current team stays put.
Some positions on the ladder are coloured red, these are the Hit or Miss squares. If a player tries to land on such a position, for example if they are two positions away and ask for a medium difficulty question, then if they get their question right they are allowed to move extra positions up the ladder however if they get te question wrong they have to move back down the ladder.
The first player/team to reach number one must answer a random difficulty question in order to win
Top 20: As with the Top 40 game this can be played by up to four players or teams and it also features a ladder that runs from twenty to one. However in this game the player in control answers questions that become increasingly more difficult. The player continues answering questions until they either stick in which case they retain their position on the ladder, or until they get one wrong in which case they return to their starting position.
I Spy: In this game the player's select a decade from the 1960's & 1970's, 1980's, 1990's, 0r 2000's. The game then begins.
There are five rounds and in each round a picture of a celebrity from the chosen decade is hidden behind a 3x3 grid of tiles. The current player retains control until they get a question wrong but for each correct answer a tile is removed and part of the underlying image is revealed. Any player or team can shout out the identity of the celebrity at any time, if they are right they get a point, if they are wrong they lose a point. The winner is the player or team with the most points after all five rounds have been completed.
