Today’s game begins with a Flags Trivia question about a U.S. state whose flag pays homage to one of its biggest exports. Spoiler alert: If you’re looking for a way to up your Trivia game, learning the state flags can both help with flags questions and provide context for questions from other categories like geography and history, to name a few. Here’s a look at each of the state flags – and what they represent – to help you study up for future games!
Next, an Animals Trivia question challenges the Team to identify a type of fish based on what its name translates to in Portuguese. For more Animal Trivia, check out this article with some fascinating facts about foxes (say that three times fast).
The first round concludes with a Celebrities Trivia question about a pop star whose name was inspired by a princess from a 1988 animated film. Speaking of animated princesses, do you know which Disney princess film became the first animated movie to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture?
Today’s Bonus Question is a deeper dive into the Celebrities question from the first round. The Team is asked to guess how many Guinness World Records the pop star in question holds. Keep in mind that there are some pretty obscure records out there (for example, did you know there’s a Guinness World Record for both the largest game of tag and the largest game of freeze tag?) so be careful about underestimating the answer!
In today’s theme round, we’re celebrating the likes of Batman & Robin, Tom & Jerry, Mary Kate & Ashley, Keenan & Kel, and more. That’s right, it’s time for a round of Famous Duos Trivia!
Round Two begins with a Crime & Punishment Trivia question about a pair of outlaws most commonly known by their first names. And if you just can’t get enough of name-related Trivia, be sure to check out episode #9 of the podcast for an entire theme round about nicknames!
Next up, a Lyrics Trivia question calls on a hit song by the number-one selling duo in music history, Hall & Oates. Oh, and in case the previous question has you thinking about full names, this duo’s full names are Daryl Hall and John Oates.
Round Two wraps up with Movies Trivia about – you guessed it – a famous duo who appeared in over 30 films together. This pair was known for their comedy, but here’s some Horror Movies Trivia for those of you who prefer your films on the spooky side.
We’ve reached the Final Question of today’s game, and today’s category is Titles. If you’ve always daydreamed about living the high life as a member of the nobility, this one’s for you!
The Trivia Team is given a list of four ranks of nobility and asked to place them from highest to lowest according to the British peerage system. They call on a number of references to help them with the answer, from British history to The Wizard of Oz. But will it be enough to nail the order? Tune in and see if you can help steer the Team to victory!
