Trivia Crack is a popular trivia game app developed by Etermax. The game was launched in 2013 and experienced great success almost immediately. Seeing how much potential the game had, Etermax released Trivia Crack 2, which was very similar to the original game. To everyone’s surprise, Trivia Crack 2 did just as well as Trivia Crack, creating another revenue stream for Etermax. The developers didn’t stop there. They continued to create more games with the now iconic classic Trivia Crack design. Not all of Etermax’s games are trivia related, but we’ll be focusing on the trivia games today.
Trivia Crack was originally based on the popular board game Trivial Pursuit. Trivial Pursuit has six main categories: Geography, Entertainment, History, Arts & Literature, Science & Nature, and Sports & Leisure. Trivia Crack has very similar categories. Let’s see what they are!
How Many Categories Are in Trivia Crack?
The original Trivia Crack has a total of six categories: Art, Science, Sports, Entertainment, Geography, and History. As you can see, they are almost exactly the same as the categories in Trivial Pursuit. Etermax sticks to the same categories in all of its trivia games. You can count with the same six categories in Trivia Crack 2, (the now-defunct) Trivia Crack Kingdoms, and Trivia Crack Adventure.
Art is represented by a red paintbrush (also known as Tina). The category concerns itself with questions about popular art forms and pieces. That can be anything from novels, classic films, music, and visual art like paintings. This category can have questions that are very close to those in the Entertainment section. Art presents more traditional and sophisticated forms of entertainment.
Who lived in 221B Baker Street?
If you liked science subjects in school, you’re going to enjoy the Science category in Trivia Crack. Represented by a green test tube named Al, the category brings questions about biology, physics, and chemistry. The game was designed for young players, so you likely won’t come across questions that are very difficult.
What is it called when water is soaked up into the clouds because of the heat from the sun?
The Sports category mostly offers questions about sports events and teams in the US, and is represented by an orange football named Bonzo. If you like to follow sports, watch the Olympic Games every time, and keep track of all big sporting events, you will blast through this category with ease. However, sports is not something that is taught in schools, so a lot of the questions might not seem like general knowledge to you.
Where is rugby originally from?
Entertainment is the favorite category of all young people. It’s easy to keep up with, as you hear about celebrities on TV, follow their profiles on social media, and even see their faces on the covers of magazines. If you watch a lot of TV, this category will be a breeze. However, if you don’t keep up with the entertainment industry in North America, you probably won’t know what you’re dealing with. This category is represented by a pink popcorn called Pop.
“Luke, I am your…?”
Geography is another tough category for those who didn’t pay attention in school. Luckily, the questions are still quite simple, so even the most inattentive students can keep up. All you need is some basic knowledge of geography. The questions don’t go too deep, so you won’t find any complex concepts about the way the world works. Rather, the category focuses on continents, flora, and fauna and is represented by a little earth called Tito.
Ecuador is a country on which continent?
History is one of the toughest subjects because of all the dates and details you have to remember. The multiple choice format of the game makes it a little bit easier to get questions right. If you have a good understanding of major historic events that the world has been through, this category will be a piece of cake for you. You might come across questions about Greek mythology, the 2nd World War, and US presidents. History is represented by a yellow knight called Hector.

UK, USA, and USSR
What Are the Best/Most Fun Categories?
This question can only have a very subjective answer, as everyone likes whatever they are best at. Someone who’s good at math will say math questions are fun, while the rest will disagree. Besides, all six categories are fun categories! None of the categories in Trivia Crack are rocket science, although the Science one can get difficult at times.
I think a lot of people will agree when I say Entertainment is the easiest category for young people. Because most internet users these days go on social media, we cannot escape the constant flow of information about celebrities and influencers coming our way. Maybe I don’t want to know the names of all the Kardashian sisters by heart, but I do, and that knowledge can come in handy when answering questions in the Entertainment category.
As you know, you have to play to win, but you also have to win to play. If you keep getting questions wrong and having to watch ads, you will quickly fall out of love with Trivia Crack or any other game you’re playing. That is especially true for kids who have an even shorter attention span. Getting questions right keeps you wanting to play. Because of that, I believe that the most fun category is always the one you know best.
What Are the Easiest? Hardest?
Generally speaking, most of Trivia Crack’s questions are pretty easy. If you’ve passed middle school and have some knowledge from high school, you should be able to answer any question that comes your way. Of course, everyone has their own weak subjects. If you were never good at history, then the History category will be one of the hardest categories. That’s the case for me, anyway. Because I lack general knowledge in that area, I have a hard time answering history questions.
It works both ways. When you’re really good at something, it feels easy. For me, the Entertainment category is the easiest. Perhaps that’s because it doesn’t require any actual knowledge that people traditionally make an effort to acquire. I don’t need to study to know the name of a TV show or famous actor; it’s something that comes naturally. However, if you don’t keep up with celebrities at all, this category will be quite tough for you.
Trivia Crack question categories are quite simple, but they’re fun nonetheless. While Trivial Pursuit has some versions where the questions are very obscure and difficult, Trivia Crack doesn’t have that. You should be able to answer at least half of the (many, many) questions correctly. One of the main reasons for that is user contributions. Because players are encouraged to submit their own questions, you can trust that the question you’re answering was written by someone like you.
Does that make you want to play more? Do you feel like you need more of a challenge, or do you enjoy the comfort of playing Trivia Crack right now? What is your favorite category? Let us know in the comments!
