  • Your local senior center
  • Family gatherings
  • A dinner or a party with friends
  • A church potluck or small group gathering

Basic Trivia Game

You've gathered the gang together; now here's how you play:

  1. Give a copy of the questions and a pen or pencil to each participant.
  2. Read each question out loud and instruct participants to write the answer.
  3. You can either share the correct answer after you ask each question or after you've asked all the questions.
  4. The person who answers the most questions correctly wins.

True-False Game

You can easily turn the basic trivia game into a true-false game. Simply incorporate the correct answer or an incorrect answer into the question and ask if it's true or false. For example, you might say, "True or False? The Woodstock Festival took place in 1969," or "True or False? The rotary was a new type of telephone invented in 1963."

Play in Teams

If you have a larger group, consider playing in teams. Since it's not unusual for the game to end in a tie, this may reduce your need for multiple prizes.
