Why Castling?

Castling is a great aid in defensive strategy. It also has a tendency to bring a powerful rooks into play when under normal circumstances it might be stuck behind a wall of pawns.

The best defensive player is the Quiz Master. If the Game Master is in trouble, then this will effectively shield the Game Master from one direction.
Of what value is it to challenge the Quiz Master since they cannot lose?

Whether the question asked by the Quiz Master is answered correctly or not, the question cannot be asked again. Since there is a limit to the bucket of questions available to the Quiz Master, the net result is the Quiz Master is just a little weaker than they were before. When the Quiz Master runs out of unasked questions, then the game is over.

So, if the opposition has enough players, then even a challenge by a player who doesn't know any answers can be effective against the Quiz Master.

It may very well be worth the risk to continually follow the Quiz Master around, hounding them with questions. Even when the Quiz Master takes the offensive, their ammunition (questions) is being expended.
