About This Quiz

What was that noise?! If you're seeing ghosts pop up in the middle of the night or feel you might have a monster hiding in your closet, chances are, you've been watching too much Supernatural.

For 13 years, the Winchester brothers have been battling it out against, obviously enough, the supernatural. Starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as Sam and Dean, respectively, this series has followed the two brothers as they get into the family business - as hunters.

Following in the footsteps of their father, Supernatural has shown them go up against goblins, ghouls, demons, and spirits. Think they couldn't beat Edward Cullen? Vampires are on their list. When you get frustrated with the show, are you telling them to "go to Hell?" Been there, done that!

With the show on the air for 13 years with 13 seasons and over 250 episodes, a lot has happened in the life of the Winchesters. Can you remember it all? What snack can Dean never leave a gas station without? What was Sam studying while attending Stanford?

This quiz is filled with 13 years of questions, but do you have 13 years of answers? Can you battle it out against this quiz? With all the vampires, ghosts, and demons we'll throw your way, let's see him you can hunt them all!
