Team trivia may not be the only game where you use your brain, but you do get to hang out with your weird friends!
Each week, we favor you by posting one of the questions we’ll ask tonight here and on our Facebook page.
Here’s the Preview Question for tonight’s contest:
1932’s “Grand Hotel” gives us the classic line, “I want to be alone.” It’s especially significant because the actress who said it, retired at 35 and lived alone, shunning publicity for the rest of her life. Who was she?
Now use the magical Google to decipher this query and be ready to add it to your answer sheet tonight.
With everything, there are rules. Here are ours.
1. No electronic devices, no notes, no outside resources. Use your brain. Cheaters never prosper. And they’ll be disqualified.
2. Don’t shout out the answers.
3. We’ll ask you 50 questions: 30 spoken word, 10 audio and 10 visual questions. We’ll ask you anything, so when you get your team together, keep that in mind.
4. Unless we say otherwise, if we ask for someone’s name, we want the last name. Give us the first name, too, if you like, but if you give us the wrong first name, your answer is wrong. If we ask for a character, either the first or last name is okay. But remember, if any part of the name is wrong, it’s all wrong. (I know, right?)
5. All questions are worth 500 points. Teams with the correct answer split those points. So five teams who correctly answer a given question will get 100 points each. Get it?
6. The Ninjas’ answer is the only correct answer. Dispute if you like and we’ll consider it. But our decisions are final.
7. Spelling doesn’t count unless we say it does.
8. Clues can be found each week at our website, TriviaNinjas.com as well as the Facebook page for each venue. A freebie question is posted on our website for each day we hold our challenges. The free question is the same no matter where in the country you play.
9. The top three teams with the most points at the end of the contest win prizes.
10. Be generous to your servers. They’re working hard to ensure you have a great night, and they can always be bribed if they happen to know an answer to a question your team doesn’t.
