How to play trivia

The Do's and Don'ts of Pub Quiz

So you want to play bar trivia? Here are some tips to make your Quizzoholics experience the best it can be.

DO assemble a well-rounded team. Our quizzo rounds cover sports, pop culture, music, television, history, movies, geography, literature, and more. Do you have a friend who knows every World Series champion by heart? How about someone who can list every president and vice president and the years they were in office starting with Washington? Or someone who knows everything about country music? Bring them along!

DO go with your gut. If you’re unsure about an answer, or have an idea about something but don’t know where that random factoid of knowledge came from, go with your first instinct.

DO eat. And drink. You’re at a table for two hours! It's no secret how our business model works. Our job is to bring people into the restaurant or bar to spend money.  In return we provide a kick ass quizzo event that you and your friends totally enjoy.  Also... tip your server well.(See final don't for more info)

DON’T use your cell phone. Cheating bad! Playing fair good! Yes, we all have tiny computers capable of finding literally any fact ever committed to memory in our pockets, but that doesn’t mean you should use them during trivia.

DON’T shout out answers. If it’s right, you’re a dick. If it’s wrong, you’re a stupid dick. Which brings me to my final point…

DON’T be a dick. Just don’t! Remember, this is a game. At the end of the day, you’re here to play trivia in a bar and drink beers with your friends. Try to keep your voice down when your host is reading questions, especially during the audio rounds. Don’t be a jerk to your fellow competitors. Make it an enjoyable experience for yourself (and everyone else in the bar).
