League Play starts up again on February 15th!

We know, we know…why is Season 20 following Season 16? Doesn’t a trivia company KNOW HOW TO COUNT?

2024 is an exciting year for King Trivia – we will be in new places, new spaces, and, best of all, IT’S OUR 20TH ANNIVERSARY!!! To celebrate, we’ve time-traveled forward to Season 20, or “Season XX” if you’re one of those people that think about the Roman Empire every day.

Back in 2004, there’s no way anyone – us especially – could have predicted two full decades of unparalleled success. Tens of thousand of shows, hundreds of thousands of questions, and MILLIONS of players later, we continue to bring high-quality entertainment to your favorite bars and restaurants. And we don’t plan to stop!

So please, join us in celebrating simply by heading to your local watering hole, cozying up with your friends, and kicking some butt at Trivia. Here’s to another two decades!

The Prizes

Podium Prizes – 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place teams will receive trophies live in-venue as part of King Trivia Awards Week in January.

Top 10 – The Top 10 teams in the country will receive $100 gift cards to the King Trivia merch store, we know you’ve been eyeing those KT boxers…

Top 100 – The nation’s Top 100 teams will be sent commemorative patches to let everyone ELSE know you are part of a club that is way more exclusive than those MENSA dorks.

Best Team Name – Think your team makes the best puns? Prove it! At the end of the season, the King Trivia admin team will vote on the best team name used in League Play.

Prize Raffle – Look, we know not everyone knows the difference between Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney. That’s ok! This is a prize you don’t need to be particularly good at trivia to win. Just play in 12 games during the qualifying period and you will be entered to win. We’ll draw 10 teams at the end of the season and send some swag your way!

League Play FAQ

  • How do I register my team and get a team number?

When joining a game, you will be given the opportunity to create a new team or select an existing team you are already on. Once in the game, you can easily add your teammates by having them scan a QR code on their own device!

In order to invite teammates and make sure your team is registered for league play, make sure to log in using your email or phone number before joining the game.

  • Can I use my team number from last season?

Yes! If you played last season, you’ll still be able to use that team number. No need to create a new one. Just select your existing team in the App when joining the game!

  • Can my team play multiple times in one night?

Typically NO! The only time a team can play twice on the same day is when one of the games is a Themed Event.

  • How many players can be on my team?

At our regular weekly games the official rule on team size is as follows: You may have as many people on your teams as you want until the other teams start to complain OR the QM decides that it is too many. At that point, at the Quizmaster’s own discretion, they may choose to split you up and institute a team size limit for the night.

  • Are there any other rules for league Play?

Yes, there are two primary rules that exist for King Trivia’s® League Play:

  1. “Have fun” is the simplest one. Have a good time. Imagine you are floating peacefully drifting off in space, answering questions in a whisper while you gaze at the ethereal heavens.
  2. “Don’t be lame” is a little more complex. Here are a few (of the infinite) examples of lameness:

Playing a 7 pm game then running to another bar to play the same questions at 9 pm is extremely lame. Challenging a Quizmaster is “having fun”, but harassing the Quizmaster is super lame. Cheating? Lame. Remember the regular game rules apply: No shouting out answers – No outside sources or Google – The Quizmaster’s rulings are final.

Breaking the rules can have grave consequences and will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

  • What if my score is incorrect on the website?

Occasionally, little things slip through the cracks. Report the indiscretion right away if you see an error in your team’s rankings and we’ll work to get to the bottom of it.
