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.

When you host a trivia night, you get to write the questions!When 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!

I Just looked it up and Here is what i found....: At the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million (some estimate 300 million or even 600, suggesting how imprecise population estimates of early historical periods can be), with a growth rate of under 0.05% per year. A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas  it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion , the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in less than 30 years (1959), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987). During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now. Because of declining growth rates, it will now take over 200 years to double again. So, There are definitely more people on earth now...huh?  Bravo
