Nerd Trivia

We had our team Holiday lunch this week. It was loads of fun. We played Holiday tunes, ate too much food, did a White Elephant gift exchange and played what I called Nerd/Pop Culture Trivia.

I made up the questions which made one of my co-workers happy as he believes I'm a trivia savant and didn't want to play against me. I am so his fears are well founded.


There were 65 points possible and I tried to gear the questions so that there was something that everyone could answer regardless of age and nerd level. I got bashed for not having any Star Wars questions but my rebuttal is that I still haven't forgiven George Lucas for those three horrible movies. Any man who gives us Jar-Jar Binks is dead to me.


Here are the questions if you want to try it:



1.  Name all of the primary Captains in the Star Trek series. (actor or character names accepted) 1 Point per correct answer, 5 Points possible

No one knew Lady Gaga's first name but the most surprising thing was that not everyone could name the Beatles. How could they not know that?
