1980 - The Quiz Wiz Challenger and Quiz Wiz cartridges

Quiz Wiz Challenger

The Quiz Wiz cartridges were able to function on their own, without the Quiz Wiz challenger set. Each cartridge came with a book of 1001 questions and the computer unit. They functioned with the use of one 9V battery. Each unit was encased in a vinyl case, as shown below. Directions on how to use the Quiz Wiz units were included in the question booklet. About 20 different sets were sold. There was no set that was officially listed as #1, but the unnumbered set is General Knowledge. See the list below.
