Pop (Culture) Quiz #1: Shall We Play a Game?

War Games Incoming

Please grab a copy of today’s Pop Culture Quiz and sharpen your #2 pencils. Dig deep. There are prizes to be won and geek cred to be flaunted.


1. No cheating. You are not allowed to use the internet during the quiz. You are not allowed to talk to your friends and neighbors during the quiz. It’s just you versus the questions on the page. Period. Don’t be lame.

2. If you want to be in the running for a prize and/or props, you must submit your answers to 2warpstoneptune@gmail.com before 8:00pm (PST) on Thursday, November 21 Monday, November 25. Ideally, the winners will be announced on Monday, December 2nd. In the event of a tie, contestants must answer a series of tiebreaker questions until there is a winner.

3. Please don’t leave hints, answers, or partial answers in the comments section.


1. Three unopened packs of The Black Hole trading cards (1979), and two unopened packs of E.T. trading cards (1982). Each pack contains 10 cards, a sticker, and a stick of gum. I advise you not to eat the gum.

Quiz Prize Cards

2. The Alien (1979) and Aliens (1986) novelizations by Alan Dean Foster, and TRON: The Storybook (1982). Alien is in good condition, with wear on the spine. Aliens looks unread. TRON: The Storybook is in very good condition.

Quiz Prize Books

First place will choose his or her prize from the above. Second place gets what’s left. If there are a ton of entries, I’ll think about giving something away to third place.

Good luck, programs.

    That was fun. I like testing my pop culture knowledge.

      Awesome. I’ve had a request to extend deadline, so I’ll do that tomorrow. Anyone who has sent me answers already will be able to submit revised copy, if they think of more answers or want to change answers.
