How to increase your trivia skills

If you find someone who is great at trivia they typically are a curious person.

In order to learn more trivia start by being curious about things. Start memorizing facts like state capitols, the order of presidents and their year in office, and keep up with the world.

As you are more curious you start learning more about topics that you might find interesting.
