Hello, NYC Trivia League Teams!
Happy Winter! Season 36 is here! Thanks for coming out during Season 35 to our 65+ trivia venues and playing with the largest live trivia competition in the city.
Season 36 will span 10 weeks, starting Monday, January 7th and going until Sunday, March 17th.
Check out all our great venues by CLICKING HERE.
Our trivia nights are ALWAYS free-to-play, and you don’t have to be registered to play with us. It’s ALSO free to register for the league. All you need to do is CLICK HERE, fill out the information, and then we will do the rest. We send you bi-weekly updates with important information — new venues, updates, and cancellations — and we never sell your email. We use MailChimp, so always check your spam and promotions folder!
Season 36 will culminate in The King’s Cup VII: Trivia Tournament of Champions, a one-night, 3-hour, LIVE event where the top teams from each division will quiz it out for over $1000 in prizes. Sunday, March 24th, 2019, time and location TBA.
Brought to you by the NYC Trivia League, we’ve got Trivia every Monday at 7pm.
Seating is limited so get here early to be guaranteed a spot. You can enjoy our amazing Happy Hour which ends at 7pm.
There is a $50 gift card for first place, 2nd place gets a round of shots, and the team with the best name wins a round of shots as well. Everyone however comes out a winner because we’ll have $4 cans all night!
NYC Trivia League allows teams to compete in a season format, against not only all teams competing at their home venue, but also against every other league team playing across our 53-bar network.
Plain and simple: it doesn’t cost you a dime to play, and every bar we host at offers great prizes to the top teams. Additionally, it’s free to join our league. Teams compete for over $1000 dollars at our season-end King’s Cup: Trivia Tournament of Champions, so what is there to lose?
Six players is the sweet spot. Six or fewer people on a team? Amazing. Do you have more than six people on your team? Split up into two teams and play against your friends for bragging rights and possibly the bar’s nightly prizes.
Each trivia night or event has five rounds, 10 questions each round, and each question is worth a point, for a possible point total of 50 at the end of the night — no betting, no wagering. Rounds have ranged from European history to cartoons that don’t wear pants. Most trivia nights include a music round and a picture round.
Rules: 1) No cell phones. No Shazam. No Google. No Bing. If we catch you cheating, you will be disqualified. 2) Don’t shout out the answer. It’s free to play, so why not grab an answer sheet from your trivia host? Please just keep the answers to yourself. 3) Your trivia host has the final say.
League teams can score points at ANY of our bars, and you can attended MULTIPLE bars each week, with your highest score that week counting towards your season score. Registering for NYC Trivia League is free, and your team can also compete for over $1000 in prizes at each of our King’s Cup: Trivia Tournament of Champions.
The best a League Team can do is to score a 100 for the night. Your score is made up of three key factors:
1.) The number of questions answered correctly during Trivia. This is based on a 50-point scale.
2.) The place in which you finish compared to the other teams.
3.) The number of teams that you defeat. We can call this your “Notches” score.
In a given trivia night you can receive up to 50 points based solely on correctly answered questions. Then we award a max of 35 points based on how well you place according to this scale:
35 for 1st place
30 for 2nd place
20 for 3rd place
15 for 4-6th place
10 for 7-10th place
For the remaining 15 points, your Notches score:
Defeating 15+ teams = 15 points
10-14 = 13 points
6-9 = 6 points
5 = 5, 4=4, 3=3, 2=2, 1=1
