I run a pub / general knowledge / trivia quiz every few weeks for a mixed group (nationality-wise). One type of question everybody enjoys are the ones that have a definite answer but take a fair bit of thinking to get to, such as "In theory what is the minimum number of strokes needed to win a set in tennis?" or "What is the most likely number to throw with 2 dice?".
They need to be unambiguous and easy to explain without too many technical or country-specific terms - the quiz is in English but not everybody is a native speaker.
