@SeekerSupreme Imagine if Steve Harvey was a kisser like Richard Dawson was, lolz
(different times/ethics back then of course but all the same - pretty sure it would be hilarious)
The answers that show in the video thumbnail are in relation to:
Which President of the United States had their spouse committed to a mental asylum?
(I knew this one-of course most people would not)
@Danacscott Yeah; the trivia itself is somewhat dated, though the majority of the questions were general trivia or television-related. Most trivia game shows from 1960-1989 were like that, even Jeopardy had a similar focus, at first (before Trebek was host, RIP ). General trivia, television, movies, music, academics, in order from highest to lowest priority for categories.
"What is ‘general trivia’?"
Mainly, facts about X/Y/Z that are not necessarily well-known/well-memorized en mass; covers a large subject base that academic facts tend to miss and tend to stump people a lot more than academic facts, at least, this was so back then, not so much now (now actually being from 1994 onwards), where academic facts are more likely to stump people then general trivia, but then again, academic facts have also evolved exponentially.
If Trivia Trap were to be brought back (I’d love this - no lie), there’s no doubt in my mind that the questions would be much harder, but also, the contestants themselves would be that much more apt to tackling them. That and it wouldn’t be for a ten grand ‘pot of gold’ (at least it doesn’t have ljn’s logo on it lolz), but likely at least tenfold that.
Anyway, what say you, @delenn13?
