Calgary Trivia Hounds was founded in October 2011 by a dedicated group of Pub Trivia contestants.
The Unicorn Pub on 8th Ave. was the downtown home to the Pub Stumpers Trivia League for a while, but has since moved to the Libertine, just a half-block down on 8th.
Just about every Tuesday, some of us go upstairs at the Libertine, scope out a booth or two, and eat, drink & be merry, while our hostess Sherri offers up some intriguing questions about Life, the Universe... and Everything.
Over a 2-hour stretch, in teams of (no more than 6, so we sometimes split into 2 teams), we try our hands at:
- General Interest questions (10 questions, 10 points)
- Name that Tune & Artist (10 song clips, 20 points)
- Multiple choice question (10 questions, 10 points)
We take a break, then go through another set of the same as above.
- a tie-breaker round of 5 questions (10 points) ends the game.
- we can identify a sheet of 10 images (10 points) during the whole game.
We hand in the questions, sheets are passed around, and answers are provided.
Instant gratification!! (If we win...)
The first-place team wins $100 towards their bill for the evening.
The second-place team wins $50.
We tend to split any winnings amongst whoever is there with this group (whether we're 1 team or have to split into 2 or more).
Sessions of 12-weeks are run each week (with the exception of Holidays and Stampede Week), then there is typically a 1-to-2 week break before the next session is run.
