The Quiz: You vs. the Maclean’s Genius

This week, we tested our Genius Peter Dyakowski on everything from the Great Lakes to the NBA. Can you beat his 67 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 soap operas to the Great Lakes to NBA basketball legends—and for the first time in a long time, he was stumped by a number of questions. “Meltdown! True to form, sports questions have been my undoing,” he said. He scored 67 per cent.
