Top Quizzes of 2020

Well, Sporclers. We did it. We finally reached the end of 2020. This year has been tough for so many, but we hope you were able to at least find some escape from all the madness on our little trivia website. 

While there is much to be sad about as we look back on the year that was, it is important to find bright spots where we can and remember that it wasn’t all bad. Our staff is always amazed by the creativity and intelligence of our users. Each year, we see exciting quizzes and quiz makers rise the ranks, and 2020 was no different. The year end is always an appropriate time for some reflection, so much like in the year’s past, we’ve taken a look back at some of the top quizzes of 2020.

Below, you’ll find the following categories: Top Quizzes Played in 2020, Top Quizzes Published in 2020, Top Quizzes Made in 2020, and Top Quizzes Made in 2020 (Non-Minefield).

Right off that bat, you’ll notice that 3 of the top 4 quizzes played in 2020 were US State quizzes. Interestingly, we noticed these quizzes really start to take off around the US Presidential election. Perhaps all those red and blue election maps on the news reminded people that they didn’t know the United States as well as they thought? 

It’s also worth noting that Geography in general still reigns supreme on Sporcle. 12 of the top 15 most played quizzes in 2020 were all in the geography category. Even more incredible, of the top 15 quizzes actually published in 2020, every single one was a geography quiz. 

We start to see a bit more diversity when exploring the top quizzes actually made in 2020, with Movies, Sports, and other categories starting to sprinkle in. And a special shoutout to these fun playlists, which were all made in 2020 and produced multiple quizzes on these lists: On a Map, Tic-Tac-Trivia, Map Clicking, Movie Image Minefields, Alphabetical Movie Title Characters, and 30 Pics in 60.  

What fun new quizzes and quiz series will emerge in 2021? We can only wait and see, but if it’s anything like past year’s then we’re in for a treat.

*Do keep in mind that determining a “top quiz” can be a bit relative. We all have different ideas of what makes a great quiz. So each year we make these lists, we simply look at what quizzes are played the most, realizing that quiz plays are not necessarily the only measure of success. But we have to go with some sort of criteria though.
