Quiz Description

Once again this year I hosted a few rounds of trivia as part of my birthday party. (Those who were in attendance, please recuse yourselves from this quiz, of course!) I've transcribed the questions here in a series of quizzes.

This portion includes three rounds:

Trinomials: Three names are better than one!
Hall of Fem: Women's sports!
Ginger Snaps: Identify the non-redhead actor by the role they went red for!
