The Quiz: Do you think you’re smarter than the Maclean’s Genius?

Our big biweekly trivia test is one of the toughest around. But our Genius is CFL-tough. Can you beat his 83%?

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 Toronto Argonauts 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!) And if you love trivia, try your hand at our daily Canada 150 Quiz Countdown, our five-question mini-quizzes about our home and native land from Terrance—where you could win a prize, every day until Canada Day!

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from Westworld and whiskey, to the Rockies and Disney. How did he do? “I have knocked off a respectable 83 per cent!” he said. “I had a bit of an unfair advantage on question 14, having won one of the options twice!”
