Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Lead pipe

Answer: Cluedo

The famous murder mystery game Cluedo was first released in the United Kingdom in 1949. It was released shortly after in North America under the name Clue. In the game players have to determine who committed a murder, in what room did it occur, and with what weapon? The lead pipe is one of the six weapons in the game.
2. Destroyer

Answer: Battleship

Battleship originated as a pad and pencil game before it was introduced as a tabletop game in the 1930s. The objective is for players to try and guess the location of five of their opponent's ships that have been arranged on a grid. The destroyer is the smallest ship in the game occupying just two boxes on the grid whereas the largest ship is the carrier which occupies five boxes.
3. En passant

Answer: Chess

The game of chess is played on a 64 square board with a white team and a black team. One important component in the game of chess is to capture the opponent's pieces. Each team begins the game with eight pawns. The term en passant describes a situation in which a pawn on its fifth rank can capture an opposing pawn that has just moved forward two spaces from its starting rank.
4. Plastic wedge

Answer: Trivial Pursuit

Trivial Pursuit was famously developed by two friends in Montreal named Chris Haney and Scott Abbott and the first edition of the game was released in 1982. The game is played by moving around a board and answering trivia questions from six categories.

At certain locations on the board across from the central hub players can earn a plastic wedge by answering a question correctly. Once a player has filled their playing piece with a plastic wedge from each category he/she must go to the center of the board and answer a question correctly to win the game.
5. Creative Cat

Answer: Cranium

Released in 1998, Cranium is a board game in which teams have to perform certain tasks to move toward a finish line. There are four game categories that include Creative Cat which involves drawing and sculpting clay, Data Head which asks trivia type questions, Star Performer which involves acting clues and humming songs, and Word Worm which involves wordplay type puzzles.
6. Green adjective card

Answer: Apples to Apples

One of the simplest yet addictive party games, Apples to Apples involves individuals playing red noun cards based on the word showing on a green adjective card. Players take turns selecting the best red card played and oftentimes answers have to be creative based on what available red cards one has and the knowledge people have about the individual selecting.
7. Marshal

Answer: Stratego

The game of Stratego is a two player game in which a blue army plays against a red army. Each army has pieces of different values with the objective being to capture the opponent's flag. Of the 10 movable pieces the marshal is the most powerful piece as it is capable of capturing any non-bomb piece.
8. Income Tax

Answer: Monopoly

Parker Brothers first published Monopoly in 1935 and the object of the game is to bankrupt all of the other players through collecting properties. Players roll a pair of dice to move around a board that contains 40 squares. One of the least desirable squares is Income Tax. If a player lands on this square a penalty of 10% of their holdings or a $200 fine must be paid to the bank.
9. Triple word score
