From which beach is pictured on the front of the Nova Scotia health card, to which famed American gangster was a regular visitor to a small fishing village on the province's South Shore during prohibition, to what Nova Scotia bank was the site of the first recorded bank robbery in North America in 1861, these are just some of the questions that will stump even the biggest trivia buffs in the province.
