Here is a list of 5 free websites to play trivia quizzes online. You can play multiple quizzes on these websites relating to multiple topics, simply by creating a free account.
Trivia quizzes trace their origin long back in time. In fact, the Latin word Trivia means “Three Road” in English. Travelers coming from different places used to halt at bars, cafe’s, generally located at points where three roads would converge, and indulge in some chat about latest news. Trivia quizzes are all about important but lesser known facts; facts that are usually part of chat rooms & gossips. Thus, conversations at bars provide explanation as to one source of origin of trivia quizzes. With change in times, trivia quizzes have found their way on the Internet, other than newspapers-which used to be the only place to find such quizzes earlier. However, nowadays, there are multiple websites that you can try out to go through such quizzes, and I have listed 5 such platforms in this article.
The 5 websites reviewed in this article are Trivia plaza, YouPlay, Sporcle, Action Quiz, and Fun Trivia.
