Lots of people ask how I come up with my questions. One answer is it’s easier to think of ideas if you build your quiz around a theme. And it’s easier to think of a theme when there’s some sort of major holiday/event/celebrity death to draft off of.
This past Tuesday, I decided to theme-ify the NHL playoffs. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’d personally love to answer a whole bunch of questions about, say, the Islanders Dynasty, or Conn Smythe winners from losing teams. But everyone’s not me. And they don’t want to answer 10 straight questions about Lanny MacDonald’s facial hair. Although… there was that one time when the answer to every question in the round was ‘Gordie Howe’… But I digress.
**The following post pertains to Tuesday Trivia at Ventnor Sports Cafe. Bringing you the best Trivia Night in Adams Morgan (D.C.) since Mid-2012.
Last week was Earth Day so I went all out with my Captain Planet theme. Earth..Fire..Wind..Water..Heart… Gooo Planet!
Here’s a sample of some of the stuff I asked. Statistically, question 4 was the easiest, with 6 of the 8 teams guessing correctly. The worst was 5, where only two teams were right. The correct answers are below in bold.
Tuesday is for Trivia. And if you disagree, do not tell Jayson Stark.
Every Tuesday during the baseball season, Stark goes on Mike and Mike in the Morning and asks a multiple-answer baseball trivia question. Something to the tune of “there are only 5 active players who have done BLANK with BLANK”.
In case you miss them, I’ll do my best to pull through for you guys, all season long.
Turns out I was waaaay overdue for a ransom-note-style-logo-picture-quiz. After all, ”Name That Beer” was over two years ago. And the timing just seemed to work out..
I unleashed this bad boy at our last Ventnor Sports Cafe Trivia Night on Tuesday. No team made it out with perfect score. In fact, only one team got the “G” correct and everyone was clueless about the red “T”.
Also, props goes out to team Phil A. Sheyomi, who were stuck in the basement but used this round to propel them all the way up to third-to-last. More importantly, they also took home the frozen White Castle burgers for their efforts.
Where are the answers, you ask? If you really want them, I’ll gladly help you out. Just Tweet me or message me on Facebook.
This isn’t your mother’s Mardi Gras trivia. In true SayKNOWtoTrivia fashion, where I go through a fairly roundabout way of asking questions about a certain theme, your Mardi Gras quiz for 2013 is all about beads.
