Quizmaster required: Yes
A quizmaster chooses a date from the past 100 years. Contestants then have to guess a famous person whose date of birth falls closest to that date. The game is called 55 because the first date for this game is always 5th May 1955. The quizmaster then chooses four more dates. The contestant with the most points at the end wins.
