Several people (and a video game) mentioned in this week's PhillyVoice Quizzo round appear in this image.

Welcome to the latest installment of PhillyVoice’s “This Week in Philly” Quizzo round feature.

Each Friday, we’ll offer trivia questions from stories we’ve covered over the course of the past week. Sure, the only prize is the personal pride of not scrolling down to the bottom of the story to see the answers before thinking of them yourselves. But that counts for something, doesn’t it?

So with no further ado, here are 10 questions about the people, places, events and more that made the past week so special.
