Game of Thrones Trivia for Your Ass

Game of Thrones Trivia for Your Ass

Last night I competed in a Game of Thrones trivia contest with Twitter's own Andrew Daar on a team called "DJ Illin' Pain." The contest was held at The Atlantic in Lincoln Square to benefit Project 891 Theatre Company. They do this kind of thing a lot, apparently, if you're so geekily inclined. Some of their upcoming trivia nights include the Joss Whedon universe, The Walking Dead (T-Dog, never forget), and (for some reason) The Big Bang Theory. So, if you know a lot about those shows/books, check out these events. We had a really nice time.

To get your own brain working this morning, I've written down some of the questions that I remember (in no particular order) from my one Miller Lite-filled head.

How would you have done? Andrew and I came in 7th place with about 40.5 out of 50 possible points, which I consider pretty decent, all told. At least we beat the team named "Hordor?" who clocked in with a whopping 3.

  1. Name all the Stark children...and their direwolves.
  2. What's the name of the Stark kids' uncle on their Tully side?
  3. They've been cut out of the show, but can you name Mance Rayder's wife and her sister?
  4. How many kids does Davos have on the show vs. in the books?
  5. What is the name of the Lannisters' home/seat of power?
  6. Can you name all seven of The Seven?
  7. What's the Lord of Light's name?
  8. What does "Valar Morghulis" mean?
  9. What's Tyrion's squire's full name?
  10. Who received Theon's body parts in the books vs. the show? Also, which body parts?
  11. Who was the smith who forged Needle?
  12. How old was Jaime when he was named a member of the King's Guard?
  13. Which Dornish prince is Cersei's daughter, Myrcella, betrothed to?
  14. What's the name of Ned's sword?
  15. What was the name of Tyrion's first wife?
  16. What was Robb's wife's name in the books vs. the TV show?
  17. What was Theon's sister's name in the books vs. the TV show?
  18. What was the name of Cersei's cousin/bedfellow?
  19. Which group is responsible for tending to the dead in King's Landing?
  20. Who was the first Stark bannerman to proclaim Robb as "King of the North?"
  21. What was the nickname Robb received during his war against the Lannisters?
  22. Name Daenerys's three dragons.
  23. What is the name of the knight Sansa saved from Joffrey's wrath?
  24. Who was supposed to have arrived at Dany's camp with Ser Barristan Selmy, but was cut out of the show?
  25. Who was named a member of the King's Guard after Selmy was booted?
  26. Who does Davos save from Melisandre in the books vs. the show?
  27. What is Gregor Clegane's nickname?
  28. Who's the god of the Iron Islands?
  29. What is the other title given to the Lord of Winterfell?
