Summer Trivia Challenge

August 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until September 8, 2022

The Pond has hosted Thursday Trivia Challenge for about 15 years now, resulting in a database of thousands of questions. We try to keep our Trivia fresh, fun and a bit irreverent. The game begins at 7pm; we encourage teams to come in early for dinner and our HALF PRICE WINE by the bottle special from 5pm to 9pm.
 
Here’s how our Thursday Trivia Challenge works (it reads complicated but easy to play)
 
~ Round 1, five questions each worth 5 points, one chance to double down in the round
~ Mini-Jump Ahead, one question having two or three correct answers, each correct answer typically worth 10 points. Example, provide the first name of each of the original three stooges.
~ Fast Action Round 1, an action round of five questions asked consecutively, team has three minutes to answer all five questions. Two points for each correct answer, 5 bonus points if all five answers are correct.
~ Round 1 Bonus, a team can wager up to 10 points that the team has accumulated thus far, but will lose the wagered points if the answer is incorrect
 
~ Round 2, five questions each worth 10 points, one chance to double down in the round
~ JUMP AHEAD/MIX-n-MATCH/PUT IN ORDER one question typically requiring five or six answers, each answer worth a designated amount of points. Example: name each state beginning with the letter M.
