How does the game work?

Our trivia game consists of 7 rounds, including a Picture round, a Guess Who round, and General Knowledge rounds. The Quizmaster hosts the game, asking the questions while players write down their answers in our King Trivia® Quiz Books, gaining points for each question they get right. At the end of the last round, scores are tallied and the winning team is announced!

What are the rules?

There are three simple rules to trivia: NO shouting answers, NO outside sources (such as phones), and THE QUIZMASTER IS ALWAYS RIGHT. These rules are pretty easy to follow, but if you’re caught breaking one, it’s up to the Quizmaster’s discretion on how to handle it.

Are you sure I’m not allowed to use my phone?

Yes, positive.

Does it cost money to play?

King Trivia® is a free event! But most venues require a drink and/or food purchase per player.

How do I start a team?

Register your team right here on our site! You can add players, upload a team photo, and keep track of your scores and rankings.

Is there a team limit?

While our official stance is that there is no team too big or too small, a Quizmaster may decide to limit a team size if other teams complain. Besides, you don’t want to split that sweet sweet prize with too many people, do you?

Do I have to play with the same team every week?

Heck no! You can play on multiple teams (just not on the same night).

What kind of categories will be featured?

Everything! You like movies? We got movies! You like sports? We got sports! You like underground jazz-influenced mud wrestling badgers? We just might have a question about them too! We try to have a little bit of something for everybody.

What are the prizes if my team wins?

Prizes are determined by each individual bar and restaurant. Usually it’s gift cards to the venue. Sometimes they even come with a hearty handshake and respect. And, of course, bragging rights until the next game.

What do I do if the game isn’t 100% awesome?

We do our best to make sure each game is the best ever! But if for any reason you didn’t enjoy yourself, please report any indiscretions and we’ll address them.
