How does Trivia work?

***Effective 1/1/22 Pub Trivia will be using a new format.

Trivia Night is a live, hosted event. The game consists of 2 halves. Each half has 3 rounds with 3 questions per round. First half point values are 5, 3, 1. Teams can use those points in any order, but only once per round. Example-If they use 5 points on the first question, they can’t use that again during the round. The second half works the same way, but point values are 6, 4, 2. Halftime question is 2 points for each correct answer. Final question they wager 0-15 points. Categories include TV, movies, music, sports, pop culture, and much more. Team size can be as large as you want; the bigger, the better. Teams gain points for correct answers with the top teams winning great prizes.

What do you get out of it?

Players have a chance to win great nightly prizes (gift certificates) provided by the establishment. Pub Trivia will also be hosting area tournaments with HUGE cash prizes. This is your chance to hang out with some friends, get some great food and drinks, make some new friends and HAVE FUN!!!!!
*All prizes are gift certificates unless stated.

How do you play?

Find a location, grab some friends and have fun!!!!!

This is the only answer you lose points if you get it wrong.

No more doubling one question per round.
No more 5 bonus points for all correct at halftime.

There will be in-game bonus questions coming soon.

**Teams/players need to support the venues that are hosting trivia events. Too many trivia players are attending trivia nights and are not buying anything unless they win a prize. The venues goal in having trivia is to sell food and beverage to patrons. These locations do not have to host trivia and may stop if teams aren’t buying anything. Some of these locations are going to make changes to their policies on how prizes are issued because of this. Support the venues!
