A random assortment of trivia questions, some multi-part. some with single answers. All parts of an answer are worth 10 points, therefore if a question has a 3 part answer, that would be worth a total of 30 points (total points available per question are in parentheses to the left of each question). Total available points are 500 (hence the name of the quiz!) To earn 10 points, first and last names are required. First or last name only earns 5 points.

We are happy to introduce a guest Quizmaster this round. Pat has been participating in (and winning) the Potpourri quizzes since almost the beginning. She will be scoring your quizzes and letting you know how you did! A roster of future guest quizmasters is being established. Enjoy the new and different questions!
