The Comprehensive List of 285 Trivia Questions and Answers for Workgroups
Trivia is a great way to bring your team together but deciding on the perfect trivia questions and answers can be easier said than done. That’s why we put together a comprehensive list for you to pick from for your next trivia game. 

Updated: October 10, 2022

Trivia games are a fun and social team activity for workgroups, especially when you’ve got trivia questions and answers that inspire a lot of laughs, make people rack their brains, and inspire people to draw on each other’s knowledge to get them right.    

Trying your luck at trivia questions isn’t just fun, though. It also offers a number of other benefits, including:  

  • Being low stress and low maintenance 
  • Bringing out both collaboration and friendly competition 
  • Helping to release a kick of dopamine into our brains 
  • Improving cognition by giving your brain a workout every time you search for an answer  

But while trivia games themselves are easy to run, collecting the perfect questions can take a lot of legwork.  

That’s why we’ve done the digging on your behalf and compiled a list of trivia questions and answers in a variety of categories that your workgroup will love.
