For the past couple weeks I've had ABC's new show "500 Questions" on in the background while I work on other stuff in the evening. The questions are tougher than Jeopardy's... requires more selectively experienced knowledge IMO, and the occasional "multiple answers required" sometimes means you have to know the more obscure responses to go with the more popular ones. It got me to thinking how it compared to other trivia-style games. Started waxing nostalgic, and voila... poll question.

Too bad google makes off-season trivia games nearly impossible.

Only could do it using the honor system. Old school trivia game would be fun.

I haven't played this in years and years and years. My answer is what I remember: I suck equally at all of these.

I am the God of Geography. Half decent at all the others, except Entertainment, which I have to get extremely lucky to ever get my pie piece.

This site sets up timed quizzes, and even in tournament style. Used to play a private daily game that was solely for the people of a certain forum.

http://www.funtrivia.com

There might be collusion ways to cheat if the test is the same for everyone for a day, but if I remember correctly you can make the questions randomized as well. What fun is cheating anyway? Never could understand that ish. I always tell those punks on video games that cheating makes their balls shrink(let alone generally make them worse at actually playing the game).

In the case of trivia I enjoy it to work out my brain, not to get pat on the cerebellum. I haven't visited that site for a couple years or so, but I should. Haven't even played trivia around at the local bars for a long assed time. Getting that itch, so I'd be down to play.
