The Quiz

Hey, smart guy: Try to topple our Quiz Genius!

On this week’s Maclean’s Quiz, we tested Peter Dyakowski on everything from British monarchs to Monty Python. Can you beat his 83 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 British monarchs to Monty Python, from hooded snakes to posthumous acting. How did he do? “I second-guessed myself the wrong way thrice!” He slipped a bit from last week, notching a still-solid 83 per cent score.
