This, That, or the Other? #1

This week’s trivia game is inspired by the great NPR show and podcast Ask Me Another, hosted by Ophira Eisenberg. It’s a fantastic show filled with wonderful games.

One of the best is “This, That, Or the Other,” in which players have to guess which of three categories a thing falls into. So — in the image above — each of the things listed is:

  • A roleplaying game;
  • A “non-fiction” conspiracy theory book; or
  • A professional wrestling finishing move

For each thing listed, guess one of those three categories. Each one you get right is worth 1 point.

(If you’re reading this on the front page of my website, click through for hints and answers. Otherwise, scroll down.)

SPOILER ALERT: The complete list of answers follows. (The only hint I’ll give this week is that there is at least one answer in each category.)
