Kids who want to test their knowledge about a variety of subjects can find plenty of trivia games both online and in stores. Some websites feature Flash or HTML games, which can be played through a web browser, or quiz sheets which can be downloaded for free. Whether looking for trivia games online or elsewhere, the difficulty will vary. The challenge will depend on the age of the child playing and his knowledge of the subject.
A Trifle of Trivia for Children
Each question in this online quiz appears in its own box, with four multiple choice answers available. Players answer ten questions per quiz and score 15 points for each correct answer. The questions cover a variety of subjects, from world geography to children's television shows. While some questions are easier than others, none of them should be too challenging for a child who is 8 to ten years of age. After each answer is submitted, the computer totals the final score and shows how the player compares against others who played the game.
Trivial Pursuit: Disney Family Edition
This variant on the classic knowledge-based board game, Trivial Pursuit, in which players answer questions in an attempt to win six slices of "cheese" before their opponents do, is geared toward having fun. So while kids will be tested on their favourite Disney characters and on scenes from Disney films, the Games Lore website points out that there's no need to have memorised every line from every film. People of all ages-from 8 on up-can play; kids answer questions from a different, easier deck than adult players, which helps keep the game balanced.
Trivia Time: Pokémon 1
This quiz is perfect for fans of the popular children's computer game series, Pokémon, and features questions related to the creatures found in the game. Players' knowledge of the characteristics, abilities and appearance of the various Pokémon characters are tested. For kids who are quite familiar with Pokémon, this quiz isn't going to provide too much of a challenge. Those who haven't played the games previously, however, are advised to choose another quiz.
The quiz features multiple choice questions, with players clicking the relevant box before the computer adds up their score at the end. The quiz only features a few questions, but players can head back to the website's main page to participate in other Pokémon quizzes. This trivia game is appropriate for kids from age 7 to ten.
Scene It?: Harry Potter DVD Game
This interactive game for kids is ideal for fans of the films based on J.K. Rowling's books about the popular boy wizard. The game comes with a DVD featuring scenes from the first four films in the series. After each scene, players are tested on their knowledge of Harry's adventures. The game is best suited for kids age 8 and above.
