In the game rooms with the usually coin-ops there was a "game" which use touch-screen (!) and you have to answer correctly to some quiz about culture, for example: Which is the capital of France? In what year was created the first airplane?..., etc. Unfortunately I have no picture of it, and I don't know the name.

I remind:

  • For every question there is A B C D choices
  • When you found the correct answer you touch A or B or C on screen
  • There was background pics for every question
  • There was a "cumulative timeout"
  • Screen was 4/3
  • In the years between 2003-2007 this "game" was retired, I never found it in any game-room
  • 11
    I think there's no single answer to this. Trivia machines were commonplace, especially in bars.

    As an aside, I don't think I would call that culture, more general knowledge. The capital of France is Paris, regardless of whether French people love their freedom, or distrust right-wing zealots, or appreciate it when foreigners even try to speak their language (however badly) :-) Big shout out to all the lovely French shop-keepers who helped me out in that, BTW.

  • @elbarna - there's a German Wikipedia article here which suggests the developer was actually Austrian.
