Pub Trivia USA

How does Trivia work?

Trivia Night is a live, hosted event. The game consists of 2 halves with 10 questions per half. There is a halftime question and a final question. 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.

**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!
