World Youth Day Quiz for Pilgrims

World Youth Day Quiz for Pilgrims

For those who have attended a World Youth Day in previous years, you would know that there is a lot of time spent travelling on public transport, waiting in line for your meals, or simply waiting for the next event to start. With this in mind, Xt3 has prepared a trivia game to keep your pilgrim group occupied! I have adapted the quiz for us. See how well you do.

So, here is a 10-question True or False quiz for World Youth Day 2011. After you have gathered your group together and read out each question, asking those participating to put thier hands on their heads if they think the answer is true, or on their hips if the answer is false. If they get the answer wrong - they are out. The last one standing wins!
