The Fellowship of the Ring Trivia Quiz

The Fellowship of the RingWith this new quiz we continue the theme of our The Hobbit and Tolkien quizzes while embarking on a new series of quizzes covering the three volumes of J.R.R. Tolkien’s masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings. In the present quiz, we cover the first third of the story, in which we follow Frodo and his companions from their safe homes in The Shire through many dangers to the Elven haven of Rivendell, and from there through many further dangers to the other Elven haven of Lothlórien. One learns two main life lessons. First, when traveling, always stay at an Elf facility if available. Second, and even more important, do not answer the door if it’s Gandalf. Avoid his company altogether. Such are the benefits of literature. We hope you try our The Fellowship of the Ring Quiz, and return for the two quizzes yet to come in our The Lord of the Rings series.

The Evolution Trivia Quiz

Categories: Announcements, Fun — Tags: , , , , ,

Charles Darwin in 1840Evolution has been going on for what seems like for ever. In reality, though, it’s only been billions of years. During that time, life on earth has taken a dizzying array of twist and turns. It has brought forth amazing innovations, adaptations and specializations. It even brought forth Charles Darwin, the serious-looking man at right who worked out much of what is still the bedrock of evolutionary theory. However, it is only in recent geological times that beings like us, capable of creating an online Evolution Quiz, have co-existed within the same ecological sphere as beings like you who are capable of enjoying one. Shouldn’t you take advantage of that?

The Tolkien Trivia Quiz

J.R.R. Tolkien, This new quiz continues our current series on Tolkien by looking at the author himself, the man who invented Middle Earth, its history, and perhaps above all its languages. Tolkien was a respected scholar and teacher of languages who found both professional interest and literary inspiration in stirring medieval narratives like Beowulf and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. Eventually that inspiration merged with his love of the English countryside to produce the hobbits of the Shire, and the whole wide landscape of Middle Earth and its peoples.

This quiz is published on May 13, 2019, in the week scheduled for the release of the biopic Tolkien. It is based on the author’s childhood and early career, and that is the part of his life on which we focus as well. We haven’t seen the movie yet, but we are happy to assume without evidence that our quiz paints a picture of the man that is paradoxically far more vivid and visceral than anything mere celluloid could hope to achieve. Try the Tolkien quiz right now!

We’ve got a flood of questions

Categories: Announcements — Tags: ,

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

Categories: Announcements — Tags: ,

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.
