It is our pleasure to present The Great Book of Trivia: 1000 Questions and Answers to Engage all Minds.
We’ve brought together a host of fresh and intriguing questions that will test the limits of your knowledge across a huge range of subjects. The book is divided into 5 parts:
Part 1 presents 400 challenging general knowledge questions, divided into 40 rounds.
Part 2 introduces the “specialist rounds” at three levels of difficulty: medium, challenging and fiendish. Here you’ll find questions on geography, history, sport, science and nature, literature, art and architecture, and movies and TV. There are 200 questions in 20 rounds.
Part 3 brings a lighter touch with 20 “bonus round” quizzes (200 questions in total), where you’ll be asked to spot connections, identify years from a series of clues, recognize famous monuments, and sort out lists of famous people, places and things.
Part 4 contains 20 “family fun” quizzes (200 questions in total) that will be especially enjoyable for younger minds. There are straightforward general knowledge questions, alongside rhyming and alphabet quizzes.
As a special bonus, the complete Elsinore Books Guess the Initial Quiz is included as the 5th part of this book. Here you’ll find 200 guess the initial challenges, also known as “ditloids”.
At Elsinore Books we pride ourselves on creating beautiful e-books, and devote great attention to formatting, and ease of navigation. This book contains a cleanly-styled contents page that permits easy movement between quizzes. Each quiz occupies its own chapter, so you can move between quizzes by pressing a single button on your e-reader.
You can access the answers to each quiz by following the links at the top and bottom of the question page. On the answer pages you’ll find each question rewritten and followed by its answer in bold.
