Episode Introduction

Are you ready for some trivia, Bub?

With the new movie, Dark Phoenix hitting theaters this weekend, it seemed a perfect time to have an episode dedicated to everyone’s favorite mutants, the X-Men.

Hey there. I’m your host, Brian Rollins and this is the Dorky Geeky Nerdy Trivia podcast. Every week we bring you a fresh batch of thirty trivia questions. We break it down into three rounds of ten questions each.

If you’re looking for the rules, you can find some at dorkygeekynerdy.com/rules. You’re also welcome to make some up on your own. We’re not super picky.

I’d like to take a moment and do a shout out to the podcast, Jay & Miles X-Plain the X-Men. Their show served as a resource for several of the questions we have here. You can find them at xplainthexmen.com (there’s no e at the beginning). I’ll have a link as well on the show notes for this episode on dorkygeekynerdy.com.

With the new Aladdin movie rolling out into the theaters this week, it seemed like a good time to revisit the decade in which Disney Animation got its groove back.

3 | 1980’s Video Game Trivia
13:45

We’re heading back in time to get some 1980’s Video Game Trivia

As a kid, I spent a lot of time and quarters in the arcade during the 1980’s. It was a noisy, chaotic, awesome place. Then everything changed when every kid I knew (and myself) got an Atari.

We still chomped down pizza and chugged soda, but we could do it in the privacy of our own homes. The 80’s was a transformative time for gaming and chock full of wonderful facts to mine. 

What was your favorite arcade game back then? I’m partial to the classics. Ms. Pac-Man, Joust, and Tron all ate my quarters like they were going out of style. I could never manage to get very far on Dragon’s Lair. Even as a kid, my reaction time sucked.
