The Rugby and American Football fans amongst us, will be quite familiar with conversions. After a try or touchdown is scored, the scoring team has an opportunity to attempt to score a few more points with a conversion kick.

Well this is the less athletic, more nerdy version.

The questions come in pairs.

If you are playing in a group, ask the first question to the whole group. The person who answers the first question correctly, is the only person allowed to try to answer the second.

If you are playing by yourself, simply try to answer as many questions as you can.
