I was recently on a weekend retreat with my family, everybody uncles, aunts, cousins, my grandmother, my parents and my kids. As part of the weekend I had promised to prepare a small quiz as entertainment for one wvening. The Quiz is a “what year” with six categories of clues.

One team chooses a category of clues, and tries to either guess the year or pass to the next team, who then gets to choose another clue category for the same year, and so it continues until a team guesses during their turn, or all 6 clues have been presented and the last team have failed to guess the year. If a team guesses after just one clue they get 6 points, after two clues it gains 5 points, and so on.

The categories are: Music, International, Film, TV & Culture, Science, Politics and Sports.

The Music clue was a short playlist of two songs from that year.

It is a danish worded Quiz, so if you cannot read danish and have extensive knowledge of particularly danish politics, it might not be for you. Otherwise go nuts. Download

NB. I have for now only 29 years of full sets of clues, but the playlist contains songs from almost all years between 1960 and 2006.
