Trivia at Michael Diversey's

This is our usual Sunday spot. We're here just about every week!

For those new to the group, we usually form up two teams, sometimes three (8 person max per team), so we'll have a sign on the table(s) indicating that it's us. We're usually at the back of the bar. Trivia starts promptly at 8 o'clock so we try to get there a little early to get settled in. It usually ends around 10:30 and occasionally some of us stay afterwards to hang out.

Trivia is free; however, the bar does ask that you spend at least $5 on food and/or drink otherwise they reserve the right to charge you $5. But lets not have that happen. They've got good drink specials and really good food. You should eat something. Your mother worries about you.

Trivia at Michael Diversey's consists of 5 regular rounds with 10-12 questions each and a speed round to finish things up.

Round 1 is a picture round.

Round 2 is a general trivia round but all 10 of the answers are themed. So maybe you have the answers "Ford Bronco" and "Lincoln Logs." At that point, the theme might be car brands or U.S. Presidents. Figuring out the theme gets you 2 points and can assist you in figuring out some of the other questions.

Round 3 is typically a music round. You get ½ a point for the artist and ½ a point for the song title.

Round 4 can be anything.

Round 5 is usually chosen the week before by the team that comes in fifth place.

You are also allowed to double one of the first 5 rounds. So if you are pretty sure about all twelve answers in a particular round, double it to get 24.

The sixth round is a speed round. It consists of one question with 30 possible answers. It could be something like "Most populous cities in the U.S." or "current members of the Chicago Blackhawks." There's really no telling until he reveals the question. At that point you've got about 4 minutes to write down as many answers as possible.

On Sunday afternoon, the M.C. will post the topics for the rounds on Facebook and clues for Round 2 on Twitter.  I'll copy and paste them in the comments section so you know what you're getting yourself in to.

One of our teams came in fifth this past week and opted for a picture round of Meryl Streep movies. So if you don't know the answer just write The Iron Lady. It's not like you saw it so it's just as good a guess as any.

We'll see you there!

    I'm coming in from Wisconsin, and running late. Is that a big deal?

    February 17, 2013

      It might not be a problem. As long as I know you and your guest are coming, I can make sure there's room for the two of you on one of the teams.

    I can only imagine that this is going to be the Meryl Streep round (it's how it was with Arrested Development a few weeks ago)

    I changed the cap to 40 for tonight. There's enough people on the waiting list or that have messaged me about it for me to add another team. I would suggest getting there early if you can. I'll probably get there around 7-ish to grab a table or two. Tomorrow is a holiday for a lot of people (unless you sell mattresses or cars) so the bar will probably be packed.

    Hey all, so this will be the first time I have been able to come out. Where do you all usually meet up in the bar?

    February 16, 2013

    • Nick

      We're usually towards the back. I'll have a sign on one of the tables but you can also ask the hostess and she should be able to point you in the right direction.

    Random question: Anyone have the game Cards Against Humanity that I could borrow for a game night?

    February 12, 2013

    • Nick

      I kind of sort of do? I still have one of Dawn's copies of it (she apparently has two).

      February 13, 2013

    • Massielle P

      Well if I could borrow it, with Dawn's ok, that'd be great!
