Update February 18, 2017:

These filters are no longer working to block the ads on Sporcle.com in Chrome. We're working on an update to AdBlock for Chrome that will block these ads without the need for custom filters. We'll update this article when we have new information for you

In the meantime, consider using Microsoft Edge, Firefox, or Safari to play games on Sporcle.com. The ads are blocked just fine in these browsers.

According to this post in the EasyList forum and confirmed by us, the following filters block the ads on this site.

(Updated January 31, 2017, with new filters)


  1. Click the AdBlock button and select Options, then click the CUSTOMIZE tab. 
  2. Click Edit to open the custom filters box. 
  3. Paste the filters below exactly as given. 
  4. Click Save
  5. Reload the page you're trying to view.

Note: In Safari and Opera, replace "$generichide" below with "$elemhide" since AdBlock in these browsers doesn't use the $generichide element.

Copy these filters:
