Trivia challenges never grow old, and Rogers, a Jeopardy! All-Star and host of the podcast A Lot To Learn with Austin Rogers, has compiled a hefty 78 games (of four rounds each). The questions range in difficulty, from straightforward Level 1 (“She founded the American Red Cross”) to complex and arcane Level 6 (“One point for each of the 10 plagues of Egypt”). Some quizzes also include illustrations (flags, road signs), math, and two-part questions. Wide-ranging questions take on everything from poetry to shoes to colors to sports. An opinionated host, Rogers peppers the work with interesting, clever, and sometimes funny facts and commentary. A concluding section on planning trivia nights ensures a fun evening, whether readers are playing at home or planning for a bar crowd.
VERDICT With more than 3,000 questions, this is a winning collection of brain teasers for any library.
