downton abbey trivia quiz

How many ways can one dork out to Downton Abbey? Season 3 is just about to premiere in the States, so we are learning that there are many, many ways indeed.

There's the Downton Abbey cocktail series at The Kitchn (the Bittersweet Mr. Bates came out this morning).

The Downton Abbey Cooks blog.

There are old favorites like Downton Abbey portrayed by dogs, the Fresh Prince of Downton AbbeyDownton Sixbey and Uptown Downstairs Abbey.

There's a list of Downton Abbey goofs.

And then there are quizzes, quizzes galore. Google "Downton Abbey quiz" and see how many of the 1.5 million results you get through.

But yes, I made one, too. The show just calls out for a trivia quiz, what with all the richness of detail in the costumes, setting and storyline. I was scribbling down interesting facts as we watched it through once, then started to formalize it for team trivia when it was rerun. As it turned out, we didn't end up playing this one at New Year's so I offer it here for a few series-besotted friends, and perhaps for you, as well.
