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.

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from NBA mascots to the rules of Scrabble. “I think I improve with sleep deprivation,” said Dyakowski, bleary-eyed in the wake of a tour in support of the Ticats BeFit nutrition program. He scored 87 per cent.
