The game of Trivia can easily be played without the board. This is an example of how to quiz a player about the states and cities having the same name. A question might be asked: "What states can you name that have the same name city in them?"
If you think Ohio, when the name Toledo is mentioned, you might be interested to know there are several states that have a Toledo. Oregon is one that has a Toledo as well as Arkansas. Although not in the United States, Spain has a municipality of Toledo also. You can include the world for same names if you wish. It is your game of trivia, so play it the way you want.
Illinois has a Springfield and yet there are other states that have a city named Springfield too. Oregon is one that has a Springfield as well as Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Georgia, Florida, South Dakota, Ohio and Kentucky.
New York is probably the most known state with an Albany. Oregon has an Albany too. You will also find that Georgia, California and Texas have a city of Albany also.
Many towns have Franklin in their names, but since we are talking about cities with the same name, there will be less than the 30 listed with the Franklin name. There is a Franklin in Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Ohio, Nebraska, Missouri, Minnesota, Virginia, Texas, Massachusetts, Louisiana, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
This is a popular name for cities in the United States. Oregon, Ohio, New Jersey, Missouri, Massachusetts, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia and Virginia all have a city named Salem. Someone playing trivia might know more states with the name Salem in there too.
That is really cool, thanks! H5!
Interesting list! Good trivia idea.
We had a Salem here in North Carolina, until it merged with the town of Winston, in 1913, and became Winston-Salem.
You think up the neatest Trivia. HI5
I love Geography and you're right. I know this is a little off the subject but just imagine Russia has Georgia and other American States in their country. Great list. H5
Didn't realize Salem was the name of a city in all those states. hi5
It's also interesting to see how the locals pronounce the name. La Jolla, CA and TX are quite different.
This is new info for me and I will try to remember it for the next Trivia game. We just played Scattergories other night at the hospital. :)
Nice list of trivia tips.
