Quizzes are invaluable for team building. One of the primary reasons is that in a quiz team different members should (and always do) focus on different strengths. There would be one member who has a lot of knowledge about history and geography, whilst another might be much better with arts, culture and music, and a third might be excellent with science and technology. Thus, as each acquires more intelligence, the team gets stronger.
The team answers all questions as one. Only one answer option can be provided which means the team must discuss beforehand, against time pressure, and come up with one answer. This fosters the spirit of collective decision making. Over time, a team will learn to get this right more often than not.
A good team is one where members learn to listen. Quizzing by default involves careful and concentrated listening - to the quizmaster, other competitors and audio/ video clues. This allows the team to take better informed decisions.
Quizzing is a very inclusive activity- all can participate, without expensive equipment; physical size and shape matter little; just a thirst for knowledge. Quizzing also builds team spirit as it is competitive in a healthy manner.
