Maclean's Quiz

You vs. Our Trivia Genius. Score to beat: 80 per cent.

CFL tackle and Maclean's Genius Peter Dyakowski was a bit sheepish about his score on this week's trivia test—but it's still a sturdy 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!) And try to beat his very Canadian score at our very Canadian Canada Day Quiz here!

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from celebrity relationships and baseball oddities, to world capitals and Disney films. How did he do? “I’m OK with that [score] this week,” he said. He scored 80 per cent.

Try the Quiz now and see if you can beat his score!
