How well do you know Philly?

In May, we tested your local knowledge with the first ever Billy Penn Philly Quizzo Night. On Wednesday, we challenged you to Round II — and you did not disappoint. About 50 players split into eight teams came out to City Tap House to prove they were the ones who knew Philadelphia best.

We posed some pretty tough questions about the city’s past, present and future, ending with a big congratulations to the team named “The Troubles.” After an initial tie with “Sexy CPA,” it took two bonus questions and ultimately a game of rock, paper, scissors to determine the champion.

For their high Philly knowledge (and RPG luck), The Troubles were rewarded with two seriously sweet VIP tickets to the inaugural Keystone Comic Con — which they then traded with Sexy CPA for the second-place prize of a basket of local booze. Third-place winners “True Philadelphians” walked out with a signed Batman poster and a ton of swag from presenting sponsor The Philadelphia Contributionship.

Now, we put the questions to you in an online quiz.

Without using Google, can you beat the high score of 21 out of 24?

Pick your the answers in the three sections below, then click “Submit” and scroll up to “View Score” to see how you did.
