Find the Fake! Trivia Game #1

This trivia game is based on a creation by my friend James Torr — a terrific twist on Tim Walsh’s classic game TriBond (Tim’s also an author; he wrote, among others, the great book Timeless Toys: Classic Toys and the Playmakers Who Created Them — and don’t miss his terrific YouTube channel).

Each category includes three answers, but one of the answers is incorrect. Your job is simple: Find the fake!

Each correct answer is worth 1 point.
