How to Play Trivia Questions for Teens

There are so many ways to play. You can decide what works best for you!

Play in teams or one-on-one. Gather your family or friends together. Get a paper and pen to keep score. Go down the list off of this post OR print out the cards for future use and randomly select.

Team A picks a question and reads it to Team B. Set a timer if you like to add an extra challenge. If correct, tally it. If incorrect, switch.

Another way to play would be to have a mediator who reads the questions and knows the answers. This would give the second team a chance to answer the question if it’s answered incorrectly by the first team. However you want to play, it will be fun!
