We start off today’s game with a Cities Trivia question that takes us to the capital city of the Lazio region. By the way, if you’re trying to improve your Trivia game, it never hurts to know your capital cities. Here’s a list of the capital cities of all of the world’s countries to get you started on your studying!
Next up, a Music Trivia question asks the Trivia Team to identify the band that remade Genesis’ 1986 hit “Land of Confusion” for their 2005 album. Spoiler alert: you can check out the cover version here. Sound off in the comments on which rendition you prefer.
Round One wraps up with an Advertising Trivia question about the most-watched Super Bowl ad of all time, which featured a young child dressed as Darth Vader attempting to use the force. Now here’s the kicker, can you remember which car company this ad was for? Another spoiler alert, here’s the full commercial for your viewing pleasure.
Just like last week, today’s show features a Bonus Question that doesn’t call back to a Round One question, so wipe those slates clean! The Trivia Team uses an impressive methodology to try to reason their way to an answer to the question of how many public high schools were in the U.S. in 2020. But will it be enough to earn them the point? Listen in and find out! P.S., do you know the real history behind why many U.S. schools observe a summer break?
As usual, Round Two is centered on a particular topic, and today’s theme is Celebrity Couples Trivia. If you’ve been keeping up on your celebrity gossip, now’s the time to put it to use!
Round Two starts with an Actors Trivia question about two successful stars who have managed to keep their relationship alive for over 30 years — a feat that’s nearly unheard of in Hollywood. Maybe these gods and goddesses of love can clue us in on the secrets to their success.
Next, we switch gears slightly for a Musicians Trivia question about a former celebrity couple that unfortunately didn’t have the same relationship success as the duo in the previous question. Spoiler alert: Did you know one member of this former celeb couple built a fashion brand that has since gone on to bring in over $1 billion per year in sales?
Round Two concludes with a Children Trivia question that our Trivia Team struggles to answer. Do you know which celebrity couple has children named Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz, and Harper? If so, the team could definitely use your help on this one!
It’s time to wrap up the game with a multi-part Final Question in the category of Toys. Get ready to dive into those toy chests to see what answer you can come up with!
In today’s Final Question, the Trivia Team is given four different toys and asked to place them in order of their launch date from earliest to most recent. While some of them bring back specific memories for the Team that make their release date easy to place (do you remember where you were when the Gameboy launched), others take a bit more guesswork. Tune in to see if you could help the Trivia Team fill in their knowledge gaps on these toys!
