Pub Quiz Camouflage

The pub quiz is a staple form of entertainment in British culture, usually involving teams of patrons in a pub or bar competing against each other to answer trivia questions. Sometimes the rounds have clever hidden themes for which bonus points can be awarded (e.g. spot the connection between all of the answers...).

This challenge would use the concept of a pub quiz as its foundation, involving a set of questions (with allowance for even more specific trivia themes on this site like , or , for example). However, the twist is that there is another sub-puzzle to the quiz, dependent either on its answers, its layout/presentation, or the wording of its questions. However it is concealed, there is more to this quiz than meets the eye!

A straight-out quiz would not be the style of Puzzling.SE - but a quiz with a puzzly twist?? Surely!
