80s Trivia Questions and Answers Printable (Free!)

Instant download of a free 80s trivia questions and answers printable to play at an 80s party or just for fun!

Aww, the 80s!! If you are as old as I am then you remember the 80s well!

I absolutely loved the 80s, everything about it! I was between the ages of 5 and 15 during the 80s in the United States so most of the trivia from my newest free printable came from my memory.

I don’t know about you, but I definitely feel like an old parent, when I catch myself saying “back when I was young, we didn’t have video games, computers, or even the internet or cell phones!”. It’s kind of hard to imagine a world like that nowadays, but it was great!!

Another reason why I love the Goldbergs TV show so much. Every episode is like “oh yea, I remember that!” usually followed by a big smile or chuckle. (I highly recommend it if you’ve never watched it!)

So I took a trip down memory lane when creating these fun trivia questions for you!

This printable game would be fun to have at a 1980s themed birthday party (I had one for my 40th birthday!), for trivia night, or really at any birthday party for someone who grew up in the 80s.
