Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. A single parrot.

Answer: Monopoly

A single parrot would be a (MONO POLLY) or Monopoly when mashed together.

The popular real estate game Monopoly was first released by Parker Brothers in 1935. The game's design was originally credited to a man named Charles Darrow, who developed the game that we know today. However, it was later revealed that Monopoly was derived from a similar game called "The Landlord's Game", which had been invented by an American woman named Lizzie Magie in 1903.
2. Bird of prey needs this to open a lock.

Answer: Hockey

The bird of prey in this instance would be a HAWK and he would need KEY to open a lock. (HAWK+KEY) = Hockey.

Ice hockey as we know it today is believed to have originated in Canada, with the first recorded indoor game having been played in Montreal on March 3, 1875. Ice hockey is derived from similar games that were played in Europe. The game's most prized trophy, The Stanley Cup, was first awarded to the Montreal Hockey Club in 1893.
3. An average golf score for a plain pizza.

Answer: Parcheesi

An average golf score would be PAR and a plain pizza would be CHEESY. (PAR+CHEESY) = Parcheesi / Pachisi

Parcheesi is a board game played with two to four players. Each player is given four game pieces which are placed in one of four "home" areas. Each player rolls two dice and must get all their pieces around the board counter clockwise and eventually into the center of the game board. If an opponent's piece lands on top of yours, then that piece is sent back "home". The game was adapted from the game Pachisi, which originated in India.
4. A male bovine that is not false.

Answer: Trouble

Not false is TRUE and a male bovine would be a BULL. (TRUE+BULL) = Trouble.

Trouble was introduced by Milton Bradley in 1965. It plays very similarly to Parcheesi. Each player gets four colored pieces. Each piece must circle around the board counter clockwise and line up in the center column at the end of the game. Trouble is unique in that it places a single die underneath a plastic bubble dubbed the "Pop-O-Matic".
5. Celebratory gathering of Wrangler 4x4s.

Answer: Jeopardy

The Wrangler is a brand of 4x4 vehicles made by JEEP and a celebratory gathering would be a PARTY. (JEEP+PARTY) = Jeopardy

"Jeopardy!" is a famous quiz game show where each contestant must give their answers for each clue in the form of a question. The show was created by Merv Griffin and was first introduced via NBC in 1964 with Art Fleming as the original host. "Jeopardy!" went on hiatus from 1975-1978 and again from 1979-1984 before the show hired Alex Trebek, who went on to host the show for 36 years until his death in 2020.
6. The large body of water of a luxurious boat.

Answer: Yahtzee

A type of luxurious boat in this case is a YACHT and a SEA is a large body of water. (YACHT+SEA) = Yahtzee.

Yahtzee is a game where several players use a cup to roll five dice at a time. The object of the game is to score at least one of 13 combinations such as a straight or multiples of a single number (a Yahtzee would be five of the same number). Yahtzee was first sold by Milton Bradley in 1956 and is derived from similar dice games that were played in Europe.
7. Gluttonous beach bird at mossy wetland.

Answer: Boggle

A BOG is a type of mossy wetland and a GULL is a gluttonous beach bird. (BOG+GULL) = Boggle.

The word game Boggle was invented by Allan Turoff and was first produced by Parker Brothers in 1974. In the game, 16 six-sided dice with letters on them are placed inside a transparent box in a 4x4 configuration. The box is then shaken which will change the letters available to the players. After the box is shuffled, each player needs to create as many words as they can in the time allotted, which is often regulated by an hourglass.
8. A small red Japanese blossom fruit on Noah's ship.

Answer: Archery

Noah's famous ship was the ARK and Japan is known for its CHERRY blossom trees. (ARK+CHERRY) = Archery

Archery has existed ever since man began hunting for food during the prehistoric era. In addition to its importance to primitive civilizations for survival, archery has also evolved into a competitive sport and it has even been contested at the Summer Olympic Games.
9. How old a baby's bed is.

Answer: Cribbage

What I'm looking for here is the AGE of a CRIB. (CRIB+AGE) = Cribbage

Cribbage is a card game that uses a special game board to record each player's score. Cribbage was invented by Sir John Suckling, an English poet who lived from 1609-1641. The object of the game is to be the first to score a total of 121 points. Players score points by forming card combinations that equal 15 or 31. Points are also scored for pairs, number sequences and flushes.
10. Terrible toothpaste flavor that is not off.

Answer: Badminton

A synonym for the word terrible is BAD, most toothpastes have a MINT flavor and not off would be ON. (BAD+MINT+ON) = Badminton.

Badminton is a sport similar to tennis. However, instead of using a ball, players hit a cone-shaped projectile called a shuttlecock. It is believed that the game of badminton as we know it was developed in India during the mid-1800's. It is unclear though if the game was developed by Indian locals or by British troops who had occupied the region during this time. The game was named after the Badminton House, the residence of the Duke of Beaufort in Gloucestershire, England.
