Welcome back to the Maclean’s Quiz, a diversion designed by Terrance Balazo to test your trivia skills. Good luck, and remember: no Internet assistance allowed.

We’ve also invited the Maclean’s Genius, Peter Dyakowski, to take the quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders who also bested the competition in CBC’s Canada’s Smartest Person contest in 2012. And we don’t call him our genius for nothing—he solved the viral Singapore brain teaser that had been stumping the Internet. (And during his workout, no less!)

This week, we tested Dyakowski on everything from the Olympics and the Greeks to Archie Comics and action movies. How did he do? “I had a couple on this last one that I really psyched myself out on. I started in both cases with the correct answer and went back and forth a few times. Very upsetting!” he said. Still, his score to beat is impressive: Can you beat his 83 per cent?
