How To Improve Your Trivia Skills

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

“What is the rarest M&M color?”

“Which country invented ice cream?”

“What is the loudest animal on Earth?”

Did you score 3 out of 3? If so, you are on your way to being a trivia god. If not, it looks like you may need some help. Being good at trivia can be hard. There is nothing worse than going to the venue as a team and being no help at all because you don’t know any of the answers.

What do you do?

We’ve put together some helpful tips to help you improve your trivia game and hopefully get you coming home with a 1st place prize.

Play Trivia Games

There’s nothing like practice to help you get better. The questions that you answer will help you reveal topics that you are weak in. Then, you can improve on those topics and increase your general knowledge. Trivia games can be played online, on your mobile phone or you can buy a game from the shop.


Making sure that you spend time researching topics will help you increase the likelihood of knowing the answers to the questions that you are asked. It could be watching programs about geography and history or reading books about science or animals. As long as you are learning something new every day, it increases your knowledge on subjects allowing you to answer more questions.

Keep Up To Date With The News

Alongside all your research, it’s important to keep up with the news. Some trivia games like to ask topical questions about what’s going on in the world at the moment. Give yourself a chance by making sure that you keep up to date with the news. It could be watching it in the morning for 30 minutes or using a news app where you can set up notifications as and when something is happening. Do what you can to make consuming news as easy as possible for you.

Know What You Are Getting Into

If it’s a TV show that you are entering or an event in your local pub, it pays off to know what you are getting into. Are there certain topics that always come up? Do they have special bonus rounds? Knowing this information can focus your preparation on what you may need to learn. Take the time to watch past episodes of TV shows or spend a night or two passively watching trivia nights so you can get a feel for what kind of questions you may be asked.

Retain That Information

It’s all good and well to be learning about different topics, but it’s no good if you aren’t able to recall the information when needed. A way to improve this is using flashcards that have questions on one side and answers on the other. You can then cycle through them trying to answer the questions from memory.

It can be time-consuming keeping up to date with the things that are happening in the world, playing trivia games, and learning new things, but if you keep at it, it won’t be long before you’re walking away as a winner, holding your trivia trophy.
