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

In a new feature, we invited ‘Canada’s Smartest Person,’ Peter Dyakowski, to take the Maclean’s quiz. Dyakowski is a lineman with the CFL’s Hamilton Ticats, and also bested the competition in CBC’s ‘Canada’s Smartest Person’ contest in 2012.

This week, we tested his trivia skills on everything from fantastical books to infamous crooks. He scored 73 per cent.

“I’m kicking myself for changing away from Kingston to Ottawa and not going with my gut on Anne Murray!” he told Maclean’s in an email.
