Trivia Game Guide

There are always more fun ways you can go about doing trivia with your friends and family. To add more fun and variety to your Trivia Game night, why not try these other forms of playing a trivia game?

Pop Quiz

When everyone is together in the room, announce, “pop quiz!” like teachers do in grade school. Give everyone paper and pens, recite one question at a time aloud, then go over the answers as a group and see who got the most correct answers.

Jeopardy Style

Make it a game of Jeopardy, where the answers are given in question form. Award higher points for harder questions, and you can even customize your own Jeopardy game board!

Multiple Choice

Just like exams, everyone can be given a printout of the questions with multiple possible answers to choose from.

Raise Hands

Ask questions out loud and call upon the first person to raise their hand. For every correct answer, give a corresponding bead or token to the person who got it right. The goal is to have the most number of tokens at the end of the game!

Hat Trivia

Put all the trivia questions in a hat and go around the room, and let each person draw a question. They read it aloud and give their answer. If correct, they hold onto their piece of paper. And if wrong, it goes back in the hat for someone else to answer.

Christmas Bible Trivia is a fun game to play with family, so give it a try! It’s a game that would exercise your memory and requires you to think fast. Everyone–from kids to adults–would surely enjoy the game.
