Team Trivia® is a game typically played in bars, taverns or restaurants by groups of individuals forming teams. A team may consist of one or more participants. Teams are generally limited to ten (10) participants on a team; and limited further with regard to Team Trivia Tournaments.
Team Trivia® is played in rounds. Each round has three questions in different categories. The first three rounds have point values available in five (5), three (3), and one (1). You can use these point values in any order and apply them to your answers, but you can only use each point value once per round. The halftime question typically will have four (4) correct answers, and each correct answer by the player will give them two (2) points. After the halftime question, the point values in each of the next three rounds change to six (6), four (4) and two (2). Again, these values can only be used once in each round.
On the Final question, teams may wager up to 15 points. If a team answers the question correctly, it receives the number of points wagered. If a team's answer is incorrect, the team will then have the wagered points subtracted from its previous total. A team may choose not to answer the final question or wager "zero" points and submit an answer. In either case, such team's point total for the game would not change.
The Team Trivia® winner is the team with the most points at the conclusion of the Final question. Tie breakers are handled by the host for any teams tied for any places for which the bar is offering prizes. Prizes generally consist or House Cash, Gift Certificates, or assorted swag and will be noted by the Host at the beginning of each game.
If a game is eligible for "Team Trivia League Play", and the competing teams are registered as "Team Trivia League" teams, then each teams' point totals will be included in the Team Trivia League Database for determining future cash prize tournament eligibility.
