How to Host a Trivia Party

Jan 22, 2013

Everyone loves game nights and when it comes to trivia, everyone has at least one thing that they know better than anyone else, so why not give your friends and family a chance to show off! Find out more in How to Host a Trivia Party!

Trivia Night

Trivia Nights are very popular in some restaurants and bars, and there are loads of board games that revolve around trivia, so why not make a night of your own in your own home! The first thing you’ll need to do is pick a night and invite some friends! It works best if you invite an even number of people, that way if people need to team up in groups of two or three, no one has an advantage or disadvantage. Like any game nights, things are always better if you and everyone else bring some snacks, and even more importantly, your game face! The competition is on!

Questing for Questions

Once you know who you’re inviting, you’ll know people strengths and weaknesses and you can start writing the questions! Your questions can range from current events to science to entertainment! You’ll want to make at least 20 questions per round, and usually at least 2 rounds.

Remember you can make questions that are pictures (name that celebrity), fill in the blanks, name that song – all types of questions go when it comes to trivia! If you have a printer at home, make several copies of a response sheet with room for a person or team’s name at the top. If you don’t have a printer, just hand out blank sheets and remember when you host to tell people to number their answers.

Host With the Most

You’ll want to keep a master sheet of all the questions you ask for each round to make sure that when you read out the answers you have them in order, and also so you can repeat questions at the end of the round. Read out each question loudly and clearly, but make sure none of your tricky guests get the answer out of you! When they finish the round, ask them to pass their sheet to another team or person to mark. And of course, what do people get when they win? You decide! Although we suggest candy!

Humans are creatures of habit, and I was no exception. Every Wednesday before classes started, I drove to my favorite coffee shop and ordered a cappuccino. I would sit in the same booth, and drink my coffee for the few minutes I had while the world rushed by. It was the same every time, and I never expected it to be different, until one day I saw a new face appear: an older man of unclear age, who sat in the booth across from me. I thought nothing of it. Why would I? It was merely another person I would probably never see again, or if I did, never remember. But I did see him again, next Wednesday. I still didn’t think much of it. Maybe he was just… a new regular. He didn’t matter to my life. Several weeks passed, and I increasingly began to notice the man in the booth across from me. He wore old clothes that looked well cared for throughout the years, and a hat with a faded emblem that I couldn’t read. The daily paper was always with him, except for the times when he brought a tattered journal, reading and sometimes writing in it. The thing that began to stick out the most over those weeks, though, was that he was always alone. No one ever talked to him except the barista to ask what he wanted (it was always a small, black coffee with two spoonful’s of sugar). After all those weeks, I finally worked up the courage to sit with him and introduce myself. I liked him from the moment he opened his mouth. I eventually learned he was a WW2 veteran, with several medals from various battles. We exchanged stories, I from college, and he from the war. After an hour, I finally realized how much time had passed and had to dart away, but we met again the next Wednesday. We became good friends, but our friendship was limited to phone calls and coffee shop visits. I didn’t know much of his personal life other than stories of his school days. I didn’t really wonder at all, until one day, a familiar face didn’t come. I was worried, though not too much. I simply had my coffee then went to classes. As the day went on, I was increasingly uneasy. He never, not even once, had been MIA. Then I got the phone call. It was a voice I had never heard, a doctor: my friend had suffered a heart attack and had given the nurse this number. He wanted me to come. I immediately left campus without a second thought, and when I arrived at the hospital, his doctor greeted me in front of my friend’s room. “Your father is certainly lucky to survive.” “Oh, I’m not his son.” I waved off the notion. “Really? Oh… You were the only number he gave us. Odd.” This stuck with me. I was the… only one. I was finally let in, and he was barely awake. Sitting down, I took his hand. “Are you sure there’s no one else you want here? Don’t you have any family?” He coughed out a chuckle. “No, kiddo. They’ve all been gone a while. I hope you don’t mind me pulling you away from your classes…” “No! I… I want to be here for you…” “By the way, the coffee here’s terrible. Would you mind going to pick up my usual?” “Small… black coffee with two spoonful’s of sugar.” And we both softly chuckled while I blinked away tears.     Befriend a veteran today.
