Often times, the subtly of how these logos are integrated into everyday products make them easy to overlook although their presence is evident. From coffee cups to pencils, logos can be found in order to distinguish companies and products from one another where some are extremely well recognized and others are less familiar. In turning the growth of logos into a trivia game, Quiz: Logo Game provides players with the opportunity to guess the name of companies solely based on their logos.

Ultimately, Quiz: Logo Game is one which is both simple and captivating for all ages.
