When I was growing up and birthdays and Christmas came around there was always an inclusion of games that could be played with family and friends. We had all sorts of games from Mastermind, Monopoly, Twister, Boggle, Scrabbled, Battleships, Chess and countless more not to mention things like pick up sticks and marbles.
Speaking of games did you know that today is Trivia Day?
It’s thought that Trivia Day came about from the worldwide phenomenon that was created when in 1979 Trivial Pursuit was created in Canada by to men named Chris Haney and Scott Abbott who were frustrated with the issue of missing Scrabble tiles when they played, as a result they set about creating their own game and the rest as they say is history.
What better excuse or reminder on Trivia Day, to get out some of your old board games or track down some oldies but goodies and have some family bonding time over some trivia or board games. You might find you have so much fun that you’ll have a family tradition of a regular trivia or game night on the calendar.
Do you have games you like to play as a family?
To whet your appetite for some trivia games here are some fun old trivia games on Pinterest I have pinned. Being a huge M.A.S.H fan I seriously think I need to track down the games.
As an added bonus today, here are some fun vintage themed trivia questions you might like to give a go. Can you answer them without peeking?
