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.

How to Host a Trivia NightWhen you host a trivia night, you get to write the questions!

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!

Look at history, every great Empire fell...that's why there isn't a sole Empire governing the entire known world. It wont happen in our lifetimes, but it always happens to the strongest power currently in the world. That's what happened to The Roman Empire, The Persian Empire, The Mongolian Empire, The British Empire, The Spanish Empire, The Russian Empire, Greece, Egypt, and 50 some odd Chinese dynasties. Point being, we're not the first to be the world's superpower...why is our fate different?
