TC-SSC and 97.5 COOL FM have partnered (and stepped) up to serve the sadly underquizzed residents of the Tri-Cities every other Thursday night from 7:30 – 10:00pm at Jack-son’s Richland. We’ve had an incredible turnout so far, and hope that you come check it out!
Team sign-ups start at 7:30pm with gameplay starting around 8pm (or when the natives start getting restless).
Here’s what you need to know:
– Trivia Night covers everything from celebrities in trouble to local lore to bad television.
- Play in teams of up to six (teams over/under 4 get handicapped) or by yourself if you’re some kind of savant.
- If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We shouldn’t have a problem getting single players recruited onto an existing team.
- Winning team gets street cred, bar cash and other prizes depending on the evening.
- You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not Final friggin Jeopardy
Here’s the basics:
- Each table forms a team and selects its team name. Each team will have a trivia sheet that they will use to fill out their answers.
- Teams can be any size (from singles to large groups) – but there is a handicapping system.
- There are six category rounds (each with its own theme) and around 10 questions per round.
- Each question will be announced by the trivia host, and groups will have time to talk within their team and write down an answer before moving on.
- After the round is complete, teams will “trade up” their score sheet with another group for grading (think elementary school….pass it back ). If a group feels they should receive credit, they can feel free to argue their case with the trivia host, who will make the final call.
- After three rounds, we’ll take a 15 (or so) minute break so we can grab another beer (or two) and bitch about how stupid (or savant-like) we all are.
- The Top 3 scoring teams will win bragging rights and some fun prizes from the Jackson’s…and will be our Reigning Champions!!
