Top Trivia Questions for Family Games Night in 2021

A family trivia night can be the perfect way to bring the family together and enjoy some fun activities that are also educational.

The trivia itself is fun for the family, but you can also turn it into a themed family trivia game based on the sort of game shows you see on TV, such as using family Jeopardy questions and answers and pretending you’re at the podium.

In this guide, we’ve got a huge list of fun family trivia questions that you can use to get you started.

If you fancy that the adults in your family have this competition in the bag, you can actually make it more of an even contest by introducing questions from TV shows, games, and movies that are traditionally aimed at kids.

How to Create a Family Trivia Game

Time for some family trivia?

Rather than just setting up a straight “questions and answers” game you could make your trivia a little more exciting. Why not theme your trivia questions for an event?

A quiz can make a brilliant thanksgiving game or a fantastic activity for when you have the whole family together at Christmas.

If your family often watches game shows on television then why not invest a little time and effort (you might need props) and make your own version of a popular TV show.

Trivia-based games you can recreate at home include Family Feud, Wheel of Fortune (you can make your own wheel) and Jeopardy. Pretending you’re on a real TV show can add a bit of excitement for the kids, and trust us, they will love it if you introduce some prizes, too!
