WHAT IS A TRIVIA NIGHT?
Trivia or Quiz Nights are typically run for three purposes; fundraising, social clubs or a bar trivia competition.
Legends Trivia has put together an information sheet you can download and print out. It contains information on our products, trivia nights and fundraising. Click here to download
Fundraising: A trivia night is very effective in fundraising for groups such as schools, sports clubs and charities. On average, a quiz night will raise $10 - $20 per person but this can increase dramatically when used in conjunction with raffles and auctions. In addition to providing the questions to operate a fundraising trivia night, Legends Trivia also provides tips and suggestions from our experience of running such functions to help maximize the fundraising.
Social: Because trivia nights are simple to organize, great fun and team based, they are very popular with company social clubs. We have run trivia nights for product launches, a conference ice-breaker, team-building and of course, the annual social night.
A trivia night lasts anywhere from three to four hours. Players form teams that compete amongst each other, usually for prizes of some sort. A standard Legends Trivia function consists of seven rounds of 10 questions and other novelty events. At the end of the night, the team with the highest score wins. Simple!
HOST: A very important consideration in running a quiz night. Experience is not necessary as the questions package comes with full instructions and guidelines. It's quite simple really, just a matter of reading questions and adding up the scores.
DURATION: Usually 2 ½ to 4 hours
TEAM SIZE: Depends on function, usually between 4 and 10
PRIZES: Options include sponsors donations, cash or gift certificates (the Legends Trivia Guidelines includes ideas for prizes)
VENUE: The venue is important and should include microphone, music facilities, adequate seating and of course, food and drink
OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: Booking a suitable venue, microphone and speakers, seating arrangements, CD player, pens, raffles, prizes, novelty games, entry fee etc.
Scoreboards are recommended where available.
Teams inevitably get competitive and the scoreboard adds to this.
