We kick things off with a Logos Trivia question about an iconic green and yellow logo from a company that’s been around since 1837. As the Team points out, there have been several iterations of this design over the past centuries. Spoiler alert: Here’s a look at the evolution of this company’s logo over time.
Next up, we have a Book Link Trivia question that asks our players to name the author who wrote three specific short stories. Speaking of influential authors, did you know that The Brothers Grimm were responsible for a number of other works outside of their fairy tales, including the start of an ambitious German dictionary?
A Television Trivia question caps off the first round of the game. Can you help the Team remember which actor and singer played Leo Markus on Will & Grace? Spoiler alert: This artist also recently portrayed Daddy Warbucks in a live television performance of Annie.
Today’s Bonus Question requires a combination of Trivia and math. We ask the players to guess the product of the number of Will & Grace episodes the actor named in the Television question appeared in and the number of Grammy Awards he won. Luckily, the Team lands on the right type of equation to use (yes, a “product” is the result of multiplication, not addition). But will they guess close enough to the correct answer? Listen in to find out! And while you’re at it, click here to learn more about the mathematics essential, pi.
In today’s Theme Round, we’re digging into some Breakfast Trivia! If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, does that make this the most important round of the game? We think Leslie Knope and company would say so.
Round Two starts with a Products Trivia question about a lawsuit filed against Kellogg’s in 2021 about the misrepresentation of the amount of strawberries in one of their popular breakfast products. Did you know that a recent study found that strawberries are the third most consumed fruit in America? See if you can guess which two fruits beat them out!
Next, we’re taking things overseas with an International Foods Trivia question. The Team runs into no challenges here, as they provide some fascinating insight into the Croque Monsieur, Croque Madame, and similar culinary delicacies. If you breeze through this question as easily as the rest of the Team, why not celebrate with some Mimosa Trivia?
Round Two concludes with a Phrases Trivia question about a betting phrase inspired by a popular breakfast treat. Here, the players use the tried and true brainstorming method of listing every related word they can think of, which yields some impressive results. Spoiler alert: Here’s an in-depth explanation of the origin of the phrase if you’re still wondering how this interesting expression came about.
It’s time to wrap up the game with a multi-part Final Question, and it’s a super fun one today. In this Band or Name Final, the Team is given five names and asked to determine whether each of them is a band name or a celebrity baby name.
One name in particular sparks much debate amongst the players as they try to consider whether Everest Hobson would make a better band or baby name. What do you think? Listen in and see whether you can go five for five to get the Final Question right!
