Trivia players in Lansing, MI were laid low by yet another Periodic Table final question Sunday. Players had to name Easternmost U.S. capital city names that can be spelled entirely with chemical symbols. Four teams out of 36 got it right.
I recently decided to try making the Periodic Table a new trivia “conquest.” It’s really not a science topic so much as a names and symbols topic. Most questions just require players to know the names and maybe symbols too. Other than the names mostly being foreign, it’s really no different than memorizing state abbreviations and state names.
I’ve already started a bit, but it will be easier when I have my own computer again (soon)!
