I still remember attending my first Trivia night back in 2013. A group of my coworkers were discussing some options for happy hour venues and when we saw that a spot down the street was hosting a Trivia Night, we decided to go for it. I was instantly hooked. When the opportunity arose to join the Last Call team, I was ecstatic. Working with a talented and creative team to spread my love of trivia across the country-what could be better! I currently manage sales and outreach in our west coast areas. Outside of work, I love to travel and am also an avid equestrian and Disney movie lover.

Round One

 

Today’s game starts off with a Countries Trivia question about a South American country that was named for its location. For more South American Trivia, check out this article about the architectural and historical gem that is Machu Picchu!

 

Next, a Cars Trivia question lists four models of cars that were produced in the 90s and challenges the Team to identify which automaker produced them. If the mention of the 90s has you feeling nostalgic, head back to Episode #6 of the Last Call Trivia Podcast for an entire round of 90s-themed Trivia!

 

The first round concludes with a Literature Trivia question about the protagonist of a classic Jane Austen novel. Speaking of famous female authors from the 1800s, how much do you know about the mysterious life of Emily Dickinson?

 

Bonus Question

 

Today’s Bonus Question dives deeper into the novel named in the Literature question from Round One. The Trivia Team is asked to take their best guess at how many minutes it would take the average person to read the novel in question. The players have several methodologies for estimating the answer, but do you agree with their approach? Listen in to see which direction you would steer the discussion!

Round Two

 

Do you ever wish you could revisit your playground days? Well, now’s your chance, because the second round of today’s game is all about Childhood Trivia!

 

Round Two kicks off with an Animals Trivia question about the preferred food of the silkworm. Were you hoping to learn more about an animal that’s a little more cuddly than the silkworm? Click here to find out the connection between black cats and romance!

 

Next up, a Toys Trivia question asks the team to name a classic toy first released in 1955. The 1950s was quite a decade for iconic toys – the Barbie doll also made its debut in the 50s!

 

Round Two concludes with a Food Trivia question about a snack food that was all the rage in the 90s. While the answer has definitely been popular in recent times, it doesn’t have nearly the same long and storied history as chocolate.

 

Final Question

 

It’s time to wrap up the game with a multi-part Final Question. The category for today’s final is Comics, and it’s all about famous superhero teams!

 

The Trivia Team is given a list of four comic book superhero teams and asked to place them in order of their introduction from earliest to most recent. One member of the Trivia Team has a solid memory of three of the four groups named, but can you help them figure out where the fourth group of superheroes falls in the mix? Listen in and find out!
