We’ve got a flood of questions

November 9, 2015  Maybe this will be the quiz that floats your boat. Setting aside whether Noah actually existed, he was without doubt a remarkable man. He was one of the first to recognize that it’s important to save all the animals, not just those that feed and clothe you. But his real contribution, scientifically speaking, was in the field of geology, of which he was a major instigator. Try the quiz, and learn all about it!

Our Money Quiz is inexpensive

September 14, 2015  In fact it would be cheap at a trillion times the price, which you can’t say of most things. The Money Quiz is also in its humble way heroic. It dares to dive deep beneath the surface — to ask the tough questions that are all too often undeservedly ignored. How would Bill Gates rank as a national economy? Who was the joker that invented income tax? We don’t claim the quiz will make you wealthy, but then in our experience not much does.

It’s time to face the Music Theory Quiz

August 26, 2015  Nick wrote this quiz a few years ago, releasing the questions in a series of blog posts, but it was always intended that it would eventually land at Trivia Park, and here it is at last.

For those whose musical nerdiness transcends conventional bounds, we trust that this quiz will prove a delightful playground of the mind. Other users are advised to sharpen their intuitions to a needle-point en route to the title page.

Instant log-in using a Facebook account

August 22, 2015  A few weeks ago we introduced a site membership system, so that Trivia Park users can now do things like review their past quiz results and resume unfinished quizzes from earlier sessions.

For the convenience of Facebook users, we have now added one-step log-in combined with automatic account creation on Trivia Park. When you use this log-in link or the one at the top of the page, you’ll now see a Log in with Facebook button above the other controls. If you’re currently logged in with Facebook, clicking the button logs you in to Trivia Park immediately, and sets up your permanent site membership automatically. If you have a Facebook membership but aren’t logged in, Facebook will log you into their system first, then your Trivia Park log-in will proceed without interruption.

Go ahead — give it a try!
