    Trivia Out of Context Game

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Iain Aschendale, Aug 22, 2018.

    The rules.

    Post something out of context. Could be a person's name, a date, a place of historical significance. Players try to guess (no googling, honor system rules apply) what the significance is. When someone gets it right, the OP of that particular run will crown them or whatever and then the winner gets to post the next Out of Context bit of trivia.

    For example: September 11th

    Player 1: Too easy, the terrorist attack on NYC!

    OP: Wrong.

    Player 2: Ooh, ooh, the 1973 Chilean coup that overthrew Allende!

    OP: Bingo, you win.

    Player 2: <posts something random>

    Player 1: <sulks because OP is a weenie>

    I'll begin:

    Louise Woodward
