|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until March 10, 2022

The Pond has hosted Thursday Trivia Challenge for more than a decade, 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.
 
Our Winter Tournament is eight weeks, from January 20, 2022 to March 10, 2022.  Each Team’s earned points for the week carry over into a tournament score.
 
Here’s how our Thursday Trivia Challenge works:
 
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.
