Top Quizzes of 2021

Top Quizzes of 2021

Oh, 2021. We had such high hopes for what the year might have in store, only to find ourselves back in a repeat of 2020. It’s been another tough year for so many, but hopefully you found at least a few mentally stimulating diversions from all the madness on Sporcle.

As we look back on the year that was, it is also important to focus on some of the good things that took place. There is always much to celebrate on our website. Each year brings with it new quizzes and quiz makers, fresh new ideas and content, and many other bright spots around the site. We continue to be amazed by the creativity, open-mindedness, and intelligence of our community.

In this post, we’re looking back on some of the top quizzes that have been played, published, and created in 2021. We’ve broken things down into the following categories: Top Quizzes Played in 2021, Top Quizzes Published in 2021, Top Quizzes Made in 2021, and Top Quizzes Made in 2021 (Non-Minefield).

At the very top of the list, you’ll notice the quiz monster that is Find the US States – No Outlines Minefield. This was the most played quiz of the day virtually every day in 2021, and was played over twice as many times as number 2 in the list, Find the Countries of Europe – No Outlines Minefield.

It also clear geography is still the most popular of our Sporcle categories. Just like last year, 12 of the top 15 most played quizzes in 2021 were all in the geography category. And 11 of the top 15 quizzes actually published in 2021 were geography quizzes. 

Beyond the world of geography, it’s clear our users enjoy soccer, US presidents, and general knowledge quizzes. Sporcle also has a large kpop audience, as evidenced by Name All 23 NCT Members (SPEED QUIZ) making our top 15 most played list.

Find the US States, Pic Click Minefields!, and Complete the Map Snippet – 1 of 3 are a few of the playlists that produced multiple quizzes in our lists. But we can’t ignore the Letter Fall playlist, which was made in 2021 and contains 3 quizzes from below.

What fun new quizzes and quiz playlists will emerge in 2022? We can only wait and see. But for now, enjoy the top quizzes of 2021.

*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.
