Let's face it: "bar trivia" will never have the same ring as "pub trivia" -- which is why we'll forever associate this pastime with the UK, where it was born and still thrives. Is there any nation more competitive than England about trivia? They take it so seriously that there's actually a professional, ranked circuit of "quizzers." It's no wonder that several of America's most popular quiz shows in the past 20 years, like "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" and "The Weakest Link," were created on the other side of the pond.
To celebrate the classic pub trivia experience, we've written a quiz that focuses on all things British: its history, its literature, its movies, and TV ... and, of course, its royals. Do you know where an English king's bones were discovered in 2013? Or which beloved crime writer used to be a jockey before picking up the pen? Or how many incarnations of "the Doctor" there have been? (For that matter, do you know who we mean when we say "the Doctor"? If not, this quiz might not be for you. Fair warning).
So whether you're an Anglophile, a trivia enthusiast, or a bit of both, we've got a quiz to challenge you! Pour a pint, or brew up some Earl Grey, and test your wits now!
