Twisted Trivia Happy Hour (Win Prizes!)

Online event

*REGISTER AT - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/twisted-trivia-tickets-180094135407 (*Wednesdays at 8pm Eastern & Fridays at 7pm Eastern. Multiple Meetup groups are co-organizing so the RSVP's shown are just a very small portion of the total members attending.)

Grab a cocktail and/or your favorite snack because we're putting a fun twist on trivia and bringing the party to your home! Plus, you can WIN PRIZES!

HOW IT WORKS:
Once you sign up, you'll be given a link to join a party of other people via video. All you need is a laptop, phone or tablet to take part in the event. You'll enjoy an evening of fun trivia. We balance the questions making sure there are plenty of different topics and difficulty levels so everyone will have a great time!

Our friendly host will be with you live via video on Zoom orchestrating the most fun trivia event you've ever been to! During the event you'll get to see all of the other participants via video. The event host will then pair you off into smaller teams and you'll be playing as a team against the other groups.

You're welcome to join with friends or sign up alone and we'll put you on a team. Typically about 75% of the crowd signs up on their own so don't worry if you're by yourself! It's actually a fantastic way to meet new people and we've witnessed countless friendships sparked at this event.
In fact, the host gives everyone the opportunity to swap contact info with other people in the group at the end of the night if they'd like to.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE EVENT:
"I love trivia and this was one of the most exciting trivia nights I've ever been to." - Robert N.

FAQ:
If I have friends or family members that don't live with me, can they be put on a team with me? Yes! We'd say about 65% of participants sign up on their own but if you have any friends or family members that want to join, they can too (simply message the host at the beginning of the event and ask to be placed on the same team as them). If you have someone in the same household as you, they are welcome to sit next to you and play along with you but each device needs to purchase their own ticket.
*No more than 2 people can share the same device/screen.

If I attended a past event with you, can I sign up for this one? Yes, In fact we never use repeat questions feel free to sign up with as many of our upcoming events as you'd like!

How do I join the event? After you sign up on to Eventbrite we will send you a link with an invitation to join the event on Zoom DAY OF THE EVENT. If for some reason you don't see an email from us by the event date, make sure to check your spam folder.

What is the age range? All ages are welcome. We usually have a good mix of ages.

How many will be participating? We expect between 15-20 people.
