Party Quiz Mega Q is a quiz video game developed and published by Sega, which released for the Mega Drive in Japan in 1993. Players participate in a television quiz programme, answering questions in rounds of differing rules, earning or losing points along the way. Up to five players are supported, and the game was released on the Nintendo Wii's Virtual Console in 2007. In 2014, the soundtrack was released on the Mega Drive 25th Anniversary Album Vol.1 album.
The game plays like a real television quiz programme: five contestants compete against each other in rounds of various quiz modes, and up to five players can play simultaneously using the Mega Drive's Multiplayer Adaptor. In each mode, points are awarded for answering questions correctly, and deducted for answering incorrectly. Quiz modes include (although are not limited to) the Bet Quiz, where the contestants place bets before a question, and the Genre Selection Quiz, where a genre is chosen and a question of that genre is posed (each time a genre is selected, the point stake is increased). The programme features advert breaks during which Sega products are advertised. The winner plays the Time Attack Quiz, where questions are answered within a time limit to "win" prizes. There is also a free play mode where players can practise quiz types without playing in the programme.
