Im hosting a trivia night next month and trying to come up with some good questions. Aiming for a mix of difficulty so that everyone can get some but no one can get them all.

Any suggestions?

Any category is game. It's pub-style, so I'm bouncing around on topics.

What year did the Pilgrims sail over on the Mayflower? 

 

The largest city in Turkey has had 3 names since it was founded. Name them. 

What are the 8 classifications of living things? 

 

Name the 8 parts of speech. 

I could go on. Homeschool memory work is a wealth of great trivia questions that nobody remembers from school.

For music section, play 10 seconds of a song (a riff etc) and for 1 point guess the name of the song and the artist. And extra point if they can name the album and a third bonus point if they guess the year it was released.

For it to work though you gotta do a broad selection.. Like Beyonce, then Chuck Berry, Grandmaster Flash then Billy Ray Cirus... That sort of thing. Nothing heinously obscure

Oh oh another cool one we do at pub quizes, is all the tables get a sheet of paper with famous people's baby photos. A point for each one guessed correctly. Could be Brad Pitt, could be Trumpy Trumps, could be Martin Luther King. You get the drift

Screw trivia, just rewatch Groundhog Day as a group, and have everyone take a shot every time Bill Murray wakes up again and relives a day!

That’s very topical with Holy Grail recently coming to Netflix

Good questions. My co-host/assistant is a Little Women fan.

I don’t want to be responsible for that many deaths.

Good questions!

That could be a good final question to ruin everyone’s night.

Good questions. We were thinking about doing some audio-visual stuff. The house where we’re doing it has a large TV and a great surround sound system.

What is the difference between Monophosytism and Monothelitism?


We have 5-6 guys in the group who have Masters degrees in theology, and another 4-5 who have studied enough on their own that they probably could have those degrees, so if we wanted essays, we could probably ask it!

I especially like the Turkey one.

Miami Dolphins (6-8) New England Patriots (51-53)


Appropriate for a February trivia game.

  

What was The Skipper's real name?


That’s a tough question. I just recently learned it by listening to Mike Rowe’s podcast

If, by one of the later ones, you mean 20 years ago, yes. :p

 

World is Not Enough was Cleese's first appearance (as Q's assistant), though technically he didn't have the Q designation until Die another Day.
