Welcome to Slate’s weekly trivia quiz. It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time to test your most trivial knowledge. This week’s theme: a clean sweep. Your host, Ray Hamel, has concocted questions on the theme covering a wide range of topics—from history to literature, sports, food, culture, science, religion, and beyond.
At the end of the quiz, you’ll be able to compare your score with that of the average contestant, as well as with the score of a special guest who has agreed to take the quiz on the record. This week’s contestant is Slate Plus member Joel Egelman. Want to be the featured contestant in the future?
