1980s Visual Trivia Game

Think you know the 1980s? This game is a small test of your knowledge. The collage above features singers and actresses who were very well known in the 1980s. (Many, of course, are still very well known today!)

The rules:

For numbers 1 through 5, you earn 1 point for giving the name of the singer and 1 point for the name of the band (if they’re in a band).

For numbers 6 through 22, you earn 1 point for giving the full name of the actress, 1 point for giving the television show, and 1 point for giving first name *or* the last name of the character. (The “or” in there is very important!)

You can click anywhere on the collage to make it larger.

SPOILER ALERT: Answers follow.
