Think you’re ready? Give it your best shot down below!


It’s already been over 5 years since How I Met Your Mother ended. 9 Seasons. 208 total episodes (or 207 if you chose to ignore that finale) – anyway, it had an amazing run. If you’re here, chances are we don’t need to tell you how good it is, you’re probably a big fan!

While everyone has a favorite season, we’ve decided to go back to the very beginning and see how good your knowledge is of Season 1. Back to a time where we first get to see Ted’s romantic quest or Barney’s cool magic tricks (like, seriously cool). The first season aired in 2005, so whether you caught it then or on the numerous repeats since, we’re here to put your knowledge to the test.

So… think you’re ready? This isn’t your average HIMYM quiz. Only diehard fans will get a perfect 16/16

Well, don’t let us hold you back any longer. Good luck!
