Knowing your surroundings could win you a prize at a party that has a geography trivia game for entertainment. Geography is quite a broad term. So, the first thing you need to do is pick the location or area that you’re going to be asking the questions about. To make it trickier, choose a very small radius around where you live. People generally know about national and international geography, and conveniently overlook simple things like the name of the street with the supermarket, or the number of parks and names of trees in the area where they live. So ask such tricky questions and you’ll not only have fun, but you’ll also enhance their observation skills.
Trivia games at parties help in livening up the atmosphere and also to break the ice between people who are meeting for the first time. They enhance the knowledge of the people present, give them something to laugh about and also provide immense entertainment. What else do you need from a game at a party?
