This Week in iQ Trivia – 9 May 2020

Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.


If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.


There are a lot of films that can now be remade in light of the realities of Coronavirus.

Trainspotting, but they’re injecting bleach

Romy & Michelle claim to have invented COVID vaccines

Castaway: Nothing changes. Tom Hanks has been social distancing since 2001

Snakes on Planes without passengers

Gone in 20 seconds of handwashing

Into Thin Air is about life on a ventilator

Panic Room where we store the toilet paper

Contagion, but it’s contagion

Edward Cullen almost dies of coronavirus instead of Spanish Flu

Contact: A film about connecting with people (rather than aliens)

The Shawshank Redemption… a man tired of being in lockdown escapes the confines of his prison

Outbreak 2: The Documentary

Back to the Future 2 – Doc & Marty go to Wuhan to rescue all the bats

Titanic… stuck in Sydney harbour

12 Angry Men using Zoom

Contact Tracing Private Ryan

The Dark Knight Rises, but Bane’s mask is N95

Footloose – The Rev prohibits dancing and gatherings of more than 5 people so he’s the hero


Yellow Gin

Papal Platypus

Sassy Ear

Hungry Loom

Bewildered Critter


We had to penalise one player for guessing more than once on a number based bonus question. Sure they got the right answer, but on their third guess. So we had to go back on give it to the next closest. Again people, when it’s a number based bonus question, you get ONE guess.

Some of you decided to propose new occupations for our hosts.

Roman Emperor? Librarian? Not as fun as hosting trivia. (And a higher chance of being the target of a stabbing or the subject of a porn film.)

After asking a split question for Sydney & Canberra, one team wanted to know why we weren’t asking a question about Amsterdam. So we added an Amsterdam option, which they wound up not taking. Ingrates!

One guess that a margarita was made from tequila, red wine, lemonade, and salt, inspired one of our players to try his hand as a mixologist.

One player mixed up Kill Bill with Frozen. Which was nowhere near correct, but would certainly make for an interesting film.

And one of our hosts was having some audio trouble and it took ten minutes before he realised that he had accidentally hit the mute button on his computer. Because we are just that smart!

See you next week.
