This week, we tested Maclean’s Genius Peter Dyakowski on everything from World Cup soccer to the Beatles. Can you beat his 80 per cent?

Welcome back to the Maclean’s Quiz, a diversion designed by Terrance Balazo to test your trivia skills. Good luck, and remember: no Internet assistance allowed.

We’ve also invited the Maclean’s Genius, Peter Dyakowski, to take the quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats who also bested the competition in CBC’s Canada’s Smartest Person contest in 2012. And we don’t call him our genius for nothing—he solved the viral Singapore brain teaser that had been stumping the Internet. (And during his workout, no less!)

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from World Cup soccer to royal history, from the Blue Jays to the Beatles. How did he do? “I had a great thing going and then I quit trusting my gut and things got a little messy towards the end!” It’s not like his score was bad, though: He scored 80 per cent.
