Half Truth Trivia Game #2

This week’s trivia game is inspired by the board game Half Truth, designed by Richard Garfield and Ken Jennings and published by Studio71 Games.

In each of the two groups in the image above, 3 answers are correct.

You guess 1, 2 or 3 answers. Guessing 3 can score more points, but it’s risky!

If you get 1 right, you earn 1 point. Getting 2 right earns you 3 points, and getting 3 right earns you 6 points.

BUT — and this is very important! — if you get ANY wrong, you earn ZERO points.

Each group is scored separately. Good luck!

ANSWERS:

Things Tom Hanks Was In

  • DRAGNET is CORRECT. (The 1987 movie, in which he played Streebek, not the classic television series or its 2003 remake.)
  • HAPPY DAYS is CORRECT. (He played Dr. Dwayne Twitchell on a 1982 episode titled “A Little Case of Revenge.”)
  • ROAD TO PERDITION is CORRECT. (He played Michael Sullivan in this 2002 film based on a graphic novel by Max Allan Collins.)

Things Giancarlo Esposito Was In

  • CHUPACABRA TERROR is CORRECT. (He played Dr. Peña in this 2005 movie, which also stars John Rhys-Davies.)
  • HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET is CORRECT. (He played Mike Giardello, an FBI agent and the son of Baltimore Police Lieutenant Al Giardello.)
  • THE MANDALORIAN is CORRECT. (He plays Moff Gideon in this ongoing Disney+ series set in the Star Wars universe.)

Although both would have been terrific guest stars on Remington Steele, neither appeared on that show.

TOTAL POSSIBLE POINTS: 12
