Round One

 

Our game begins with an Internet Trivia question about a common abbreviation from the world of internet advertising. In recent advertising news, Netflix co-CEO Reed Hastings spoke in an interview about the company’s decision to introduce an ad-supported tier on the streaming platform.

 

Next up, we have a Cartoons Trivia question about a character that was voiced by late actor John Ritter in the early 2000s. Can you guess which iconic cartoon was the first fictional character to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

 

The first round wraps up with a Places Trivia question about an amusement park that features the world’s first and only solar-powered Ferris wheel. Did you know that the origins of the modern roller coaster trace all the way back to 15th-century Russia?

 

Bonus Question

 

Today’s Bonus Question is a follow-up to the Places question from the first round. The Team is asked to guess what year the landmark that is home to the Ferris wheel in question opened. Thanks to some related knowledge, they’re able to come up with a reason-based estimate. Do you think it will be close enough for a point? Listen in to find out!

Round Two

 

Guten tag and Willkommen to round two. We’re collecting yet another stamp on our Trivia passports with a theme round all about Germany Trivia! Or, should we say, “Deutschland Kleinigkeiten.”

 

The second round begins with a Landmarks Trivia question about an 18th-century Berlin landmark. For more Trivia about notable places in Germany, check out this post about Neuschwanstein Castle, which served as Walt Disney’s inspiration for Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland.

 

Next, we have a Money question about the brothers who appeared on Germany’s 1000 Deutsche Mark before the adoption of the Euro. Spoiler alert: Click here to learn more about the famous brothers in question.

 

Round Two ends with an Animals Trivia question about the dog breed that was first bred in Germany from an Old English Bulldog and the now-extinct Bullenbeisser. Can you guess which dog breed has been named the most popular breed in the US for over 30 years in a row?

 

Final Question

 

We’ve reached the Final Question of the game, and today’s category of choice is Television. Live from your living room, it’s Saturday Night!


The Trivia Team is given a list of four Saturday Night Live cast members and asked to place them in order by the number of seasons they were on the show. While the players are familiar with each of the cast members in question, they aren’t as confident in their knowledge of SNL history. Could you help the Team put the cast members in the correct order? Tune in and let us know!
