It turns out, the number of times I can listen to Tay-Tay’s “Christmas Tree Farm” in a row is one hundred thousand million. You? Alarmed at quite how early you’ve turned to Christmas music this year? Noticing that you’ve completed pretty much every board game and jigsaw puzzle your household owns? Sounds familiar.
Thailand Trivia Night – Bundled Up for Winter
Luckily, I’ve spent the past few days in Make The Things Mode … and here’s something exciting. I have an activity for you. An actual way to use up hours in the day. No showers, hair dryers or leave-the-house clothes required. If you can cast your mind back to remember …. pubs? Bars? Outside Land places with happy humans inside? … then allow me to present: Thailand Trivia.Shop Now
So as it turns out … travel guidebooks? Not so hot in pandemics. At long last, I realised that there’s a way to use all this knowledge in COVID-proof way: through sheer competition and ruthless academic/pop culture savagery against our own friends and family.
Who wants to plan a future vacation … when you could demonstrate superior intellect, right here, right now?
Just in time for Lockdown Two/No-Bubble-Bubbles/Self-Isolated Thanksgiving, may I present The Ultimate Thailand Trivia Bundle.
Choose from three trivia packs:
The Blue and Green Quizzes (US$10/approx £7.50) are perfect for a normal-length quiz (about 30 minutes for well-behaved groups or an hour+ for those with dire attention spans and the tendency to talk-back). Each quiz has five rounds of fifty questions, including one picture round and one general knowledge round.
The Thailand Trivia Pack + Bonus Rounds (US$15/approx £11) are for true trivia buffs (or those staring down long cold winters). This bundle has both the Blue and Green Quizzes, plus two bonus rounds with more general knowledge, a tie-breaker round and a fairly brutal Ultimate Death final tie-breaker (bring the mental math skills you sharpened during the election). You could split this bundle into a few nights’ entertainment… or just grab the wine and fully go for it.
Every question in every quiz pertains to Thailand in some way.
Who will it suit?
I never enjoy those trivia nights where if you don’t know the answers, that’s it, you’re useless … so I’ve tried my best to offer a range of questions including multiple choice and questions where you could reason or discuss your way to the right answer. (And there’s some 6th-grade math … give me a calculator and I feel so powerful).
- If you’re Thai … it’s probably pretty easy (but I doubt you’ll get 100%)
- If you’re a long-term Thailand expat … see above, but you need to know your history
- If you’ve visited Thailand a lot (or read every page of my blog) … I think you’ll do well, but will find some decent challenges
- If you know absolutely zero about Thailand (but love trivia) … give it a go. Many rounds include optional Helpful Hints which the quiz-master might choose to share.
