Mac isn’t the best platform for games. It’s mostly for creative types and works as an excellent foil to Windows (and vice versa). There are games for the platform, though, and that includes quiz games. You can find them on Facebook, the Internet, Steam, and even the Mac Store in some cases. Here are the best quiz games for Mac that we could find!


AMAZING TRIVIA

Price: $0.99
DOWNLOAD ON STEAM
Amazing Trivia is a very okay trivia game for Mac. It uses the traditional question-and-answer format. The game asks you a question and you get multiple choices for the answers. It features a variety of questions spread out among various categories. The graphics and mechanics are very simple and the game is quick to play. There aren’t a whole ton of questions and some questions are fairly basic fun facts. Still, the game only goes for $0.99 on Steam so it’s not like you’re paying a ton of money for it.


ASKUTRON

Price: $14.99
DOWNLOAD ON STEAM
Askutron is another traditional trivia game for Mac. This one is a little more fleshed out than the previous entry on the list. It includes over 10,000 questions across 21 categories. There are also questions from other players, local and online multiplayer, up to eight players per game, and Steam Cloud support for syncing custom quizzes and profiles. This is one of the few quiz games for Mac that are this big. We recommend looking here first, especially if you like more traditional quiz setups.


FLAGSPLOSION

Price: $2.99
DOWNLOAD ON STEAM
Flagsplosion is a very basic quiz game. The game contains tons of flags. Your goal is to name the proper countries, states, etc for each flag. The game contains over 100 training levels, a practice mode, an endless mode, and some of the usual fair like Steam achievements and leaderboards. This is one of those games that you can eventually memorize. However, at $2.99, it’s not a bad play.


JACKBOX PARTY PACK (FOUR GAMES)

Price: $24.99 / Up to $74.96
DOWNLOAD ON STEAM
The Jackbox Party Pack is a series of games with a ton of mini-games. There are four games in the series. Each one has its own set of mini-games. Some of them are just goofy little party games. However, there are some quiz and trivia games there as well. Each game can have at least eight players. The players control their part of the game with their smartphones. It’s a little expensive at $24.99, but you can get all four titles for $74.96 and that’s basically one free. This one is also available on the Mac Store if you prefer to buy it there.


JETPUNK

Price: Free
CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE
JetPunk is a website with a ton of quizzes. The quizzes follow a similar mechanic. You get a category like Countries of the World. You must type in as many as you can in the allotted time. The player gets a score on how well they do. We took one during testing that made us type to 100 as fast as possible. It’s not a deep or overly difficult quiz website. However, it’s a good way to burn a few minutes if you’re bored. Every quiz is free on the website. The site is supported by advertising.


MAJOTORI

Price: $5.99
DOWNLOAD ON STEAM
Majotori is one of the more unique quiz games for Mac. This one actually has a little bit of a story line. There is a witch that grants wishes. However, characters must pass a trivia challenge before she grants them. It’s an entertaining premise. The game includes 25 characters, 50 branching storylines, over 1,000 questions across four categories, and more. The questions revolve around video games, cinema, animation, and some other stuff. Those who like broader topics may not be 100% satisfied with this one. Still, it’s quite fun and relatively cheap at $5.99.


SPORCLE

Price: Free
CHECK OUT SPORCLE’S WEBSITE
Sporcle is another website with a bunch of quizzes. This one uses a point-and-click style of play. You pick a topic and the sites gives you stuff to click on. You click on the appropriate thing. For instance, there is a Name the Midwest States (in the United States) quiz. It gives you a map, gives you a state name, and then you click it. We prefer the JetPunk method a little more. However, this one is still pretty good for passing the time. It’s also free and supported by ads.


TRIVIA PLAZA

Price: Free
CHECK OUT TRIVIA PLAZA’S WEBSITE
Trivia Plaza is a website with a bunch of basic quizzes. This one follows a more traditional question-and-answer layout. It asks a question and gives you multiple choice answers. There are a couple of dozen categories, each with a dozen or two quizzes. It’s not the most diverse website for this stuff. The site is the easiest to use out of all the websites mentioned in this article, though. It’s also completely free with advertising. There isn’t much else to say about it, honestly. It’s just a nice, simple quiz website.


TRUE OF FALSE 2

Price: $1.99
DOWNLOAD ON STEAM
True of False 2 is a very simple quiz game on Steam. It gives you a fun fact that may or may not be accurate. Your goal is to choose which is which. There really isn’t much else to the game. That’s probably why it only goes for $1.99. There are enough questions to make the game feel fresh for quite some time as well. Perhaps our favorite thing about this one is that you can get bundled with Amazing Trivia for a discounted price. That’s two simple trivia games for under $3.00. That’s not bad at all.


THE ULTIMATE TRIVIA CHALLENGE

Price: $4.99
DOWNLOAD ON STEAM
The Ultimate Trivia Challenge is probably not the ultimate trivia challenge. It is, however, a decent trivia game. It features a variety of questions from nine categories, including movies, people and places, science, music, sports, famous quotes, and spelling. Additionally, it has a party mode with up to four players, full controller support, and it’s family friendly. This one is relatively new. We didn’t see any problems during our testing, but we also tested on a Windows machine for this one. It may have the occasional bug or repeated question. Just a heads up, really.
