    This puzzle involves the 9 cards labeled Useless Knowledge Quest!

  • Click to reveal Hint #2

    What's another word for Useless Knowledge? How about Quest?

  • Click to reveal Hint #3

    These look like cards from a very familiar trivia game, but it's certainly hard to identify what category each question belongs to!

  • Click to reveal Hint #4

    Each question deals falls into multiple categories from the original Trivial Pursuit game. Can you match the questions to the colored circles on one of the Honeycomb pieces?

  • Click to reveal Hint #5

    Every answer should have the same number of letters. It's not a coincidence that the honeycomb pieces have the same number of holes, too.

  • Click to reveal Hint #6

    Try putting each answer into the holes, working clockwise. But where to start?

  • Click to reveal Hint #7

    Match the categories of a particular question with a honeycomb piece using the colored circles. Write your six-letter answer into the holes starting at the black dot.
