If you’re looking to test your knowledge of everything from the geography of the United States to Broadway musical characters, the website sporcle.com might be just the way to spend your free period.
The quizzes on Sporcle are all fill-in-the-blank (just in case you’re tired of pesky multiple choice questions that leave you playing eenie-meenie-minee-mo to decide between two answers). Some quizzes require you to enter answers in a particular order (“Harry Potter Name Chain”), while others are just a test to see how many “somethings” you can name in a certain amount of time (the very addicting and popular “Countries of the World”).
Because of its wide range of quizzes, Sporcle conveniently lends itself to both studying and procrastination, and is a great way to bond with friends or break the ice with new people. People work together to beat the clock, and as the excitement and energy build in those last few seconds, you’ll be surprised at who exclaims country names or song lyrics.
Just one reminder—Hold back your enthusiasm enough so as not to scare/intimidate/make cry the poor soul who needs to type in the answers… while spelling everything correctly!
