Ultimate Trivia Volume 1

Ultimate Trivia Volume 1

The Ultimate Trivia Volume 1 is an excellent compendium of more than 800 trivia questions. This volume contains these topics:

  • Animals and Nature
  • Arts and Literature
  • Food and Drink
  • US and World History

There are also three types of questions: multiple choice, Q&A, and sequencing.

Question Examples

Multiple choice is the easiest because the answer is right there and you have a 25% chance even if you have to guess. Here is an example.

Which of the following is not a low-carb diet?

  1. keto
  2. Atkins
  3. Whole30
  4. WW (formerly Weight Watchers)

Question and Answer is more complex because a word bank is used to match with a series of questions. Not all the words in the word bank will be used. An example is below.

The Country formerly known as…

Word Bank

Aruba, Belize, Czechoslovakia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Iran, Malawi, Myanmar, Namibia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Yugoslavia, and Zambia

The questions




South West Africa

British Honduras

Croatia, Kosovo, and Serbia (among others)

Dutch East Indies




Finally, the most challenging are sequencing questions. This one is my favorite of the headline questions.

Put these headlines in order from oldest to newest

“All Drowned but 868”

“Japs Bomb Hawaii”

“World War is Over”

“Dr. Einstein is Dead”

“Navy Hunts Amelia Lost in Pacific Ocean”

“Goebbels Suicide as Berlin Falls”

But there are those types of questions for other areas like this easier one in the Arts and Literature chapter.

Put these top teen book series in order from first to last

J.K. Rowling

The Goblet of Fire

The Sorcerer’s Stone

The Chamber of Secrets

The Order of the Phoenix

The Deathly Hallows

The Prisoner of Azkaban

The Half-Blood Prince

My Thoughts

If you are attending or hosting a party or business meeting, these are some great icebreakers that will get everyone talking to each other. The Ultimate Trivia Volume 1 is also great for long road trips, pub contests, and just to challenge yourself. 5 stars!

Thanks to Rockridge Press and Callisto for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
