Whether you’re right here or far away, all Philadelphians miss Philadelphia right now. Here’s a way to reconnect: see how well you know the city with this online quiz.

On April 29, we hosted the third virtual edition of our long-running Billy Penn Philly Quizzo, and it was another success. More than 60 teams finished all three rounds, and there was fierce competition at the top. Players can check their team score here.

Finishing tied in first place with 23 points each were team Jami, team Erin’s Irish Brigade, and team Below Basic. The elimination round question to win the prize — a “Boathouse Row at Sunset” art print and bragging rights for at least two weeks — was snagged by Below Basic. Congrats!

Also major thanks to the folks who donated to our nonprofit newsroom when they registered for tickets. You rock.

We’re doing this again, so new BP Quizzo Champs will be crowned soon. You can join the live game by signing up here for the Zoom on Wednesday, May 13.

You can also test your local knowledge right now by taking the quiz below. Without using Google, how close can you get to the high score of 23/24?

To play, pick your the answers in the “Past,” “Present” and “Future” sections below, then click “Submit” and scroll up to “View Score” to see how you did.

If the form below doesn’t work for you, access it directly here.
