What are trivia games?

Given how big a role trivia plays in TV shows and board games, you could be forgiven for thinking it’s been around forever. But as recently as a century ago, trivia as we know it today didn’t even exist.In the 1950s, televisions rolled out into every home in the developed world. The change was so sudden, in fact, that the content creators of the time couldn’t keep pace with the demand for new programming. Quiz shows were an easy solution: they were cheap to make, compelling, and gave everyone something to talk about. Jeopardy! hit television screens in the USA in 1964, and has remained consistently popular ever since. The most popular board-game trivia game, Trivial Pursuit, arrived some 15 years later, when two Canadian journalists decided to create their own game after finding pieces of their Scrabble board missing. New versions of the game have been released consistently ever since.Of course, modern digital technology provides trivia players with a new means of testing their knowledge. As well as adaptations of popular gameshows like The Weakest Link and Who Wants to be a Millionaire?, new forms of quiz began to be launched on app stores and websites. With a limitless supply of questions, trivia games became a reliable draw – and they’ve remained so ever since.Gamepix provides a hassle-free way of enjoying a range of trivia-based games.
