It was a glorious evening for our first in-person Philly Quizzo in a year and a half.

More than 60 people showed up for the live edition of our monthly trivia game, which had been held over Zoom during lockdown. This time around, we were outside on Liberties Walk in Northern Liberties, with players taking at seat at either El Camino Real or SET Philly.

As they snacked and sipped on happy hour specials, organizers from the BlackStar Film Festival, our cohost for the night, shared some details about their internationally renowned event. They announced the evening’s grand prize: a pair of all-access passes, valued at $250, which went to first place high scorers Team Akatsui.

Up for grabs in second place was a $25 gift card from each of the two restaurants, which was won by loyal fans the Buhs-Ins. There was t-shirt swag in store for another coveted prize — best team name, which was awarded to “Vaccines Are Made With Schuylkill Water.”

Now it’s your turn. Without using Google, can you beat Akatsui’s score of 17/24?

To play, pick your answers in the “Past,” “Present” and “Future” sections below, then click “Submit” and scroll up to hit “View Score” and see how you did. (That’s where you’ll see the correct answers, too.)

If the form below doesn’t work for you, take the quiz here. Stay tuned for info about our August Philly Quizzo, coming to a bar near you.
