Quick Links

One of the most fun things you can do in Return to Monkey Island is partaking in the game-long trivia sidequest. Early in the game, you can pick up a book of trivia that has a trivia card in it - answering the question correctly gets you a nice shiny check mark, answering it incorrectly makes the card disappear, to be found again on your travels.

These trivia questions range from the very obvious to the painfully obscure - luckily, you have us, and this guide, to make sure you don't miss a question!

Where To Find Trivia Cards

Trivia cards are scattered throughout the entire game. As you'd expect, they're very small cards often lodged into the sides of buildings or poking out underneath rugs and such - just press the button that highlights all interactable objects on the screen and you'll be able to find them easily.

Most screens in the game have trivia card spawn points. Keep an eye out!

When you pick a trivia card up, it'll be added to your trivia book. Interact with the book in your inventory, and you'll be able to attempt to answer the question.

If you have more than seven unanswered trivia questions in your trivia book, they will not spawn in the environment anymore. Be sure that you're answering trivia cards as you pick them up!

All Trivia Question Answers

The tables below contain the questions and the correct answers for every trivia card in the game. They are organized by the pages that the questions appear on, so scroll down to the pages containing any questions that you are struggling with.

On the left are the questions, and on the right are the responses you should choose.

There are achievements relating to trivia cards: picking up 20 of them will get you the Card Collector achievement, and there are separate achievements for correctly answering 10, 25, 50, 75, and 100 questions.
