This is the perfect trivia test for anyone who aspires to take home the prize at the end of a pub quiz night.  Whether you are training to defeat the smug local champions, or just merely brushing up on your own skills. This is the perfect book for you, for example –


Where is the Queen’s Scottish residence?


Which food, not rationed during World war II, was rationed after it?


What are stag, rhinoceros and tiger other than animals in their own right?

My opinion

It is a standing joke in our house that my husband is a know it all, although I do stand my own at times.  We have had great fun testing each others knowledge and playing via video call with friends and family. I would recommend these to anyone to relieve the boredom of lockdown.
