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.

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!

What was the British Royal Family's name before they changed it to Windsor? Bonus points if they can say why it was changed.

 

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

The Mos Eisley Cantina :D

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!

Appropriate for a February trivia game.

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