Trivia at Michael Diversey's

There's trivia on Sunday night. What more do you need to know?

For those new to the group, we usually form up a couple teams (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. Trivia is usually over by 10:30.

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.

Michael Diversey's is currently using the Brain Bash trivia format. The rules are as follows:

Trivia 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 now a round of random trivia with a two-part question at the end where you can wager up to 10 points. If you're not sure I would suggest not wagering the full 10. That can be bad. It has been bad.

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.

If you have any questions feel free to hit me up or ask them here.

    Just as an FYI: Transit on Sunday is going to be nothing short of insane. It's the day of the Pride Parade. Traffic will be rerouted. Buses will be rerouted all throughout Lakeview. Your best bet is the train. Expect crowds of people. Possibly in various stages of undress.
