Trivia Tournament FAQ
Q: How do I join the tournament?
A: Simply play trivia at one of Syracuse Trivia Company’s venues Monday-Thursday and use the same team name each week. From January 9, 2023- February 24th. Trivia nights will be run just like usual, but now team scores will add up for seven weeks.
Q: How much does it cost to enter the tournament?
A: It’s FREE! Every team that plays on any week is automatically entered to the tournament. You won’t even feel it. Tournament champions of each venue are invited (but not required) to participate in the Tournament of Champions, and there is a $50/team entry fee.
Q: Do I need to use the same team name each week?
A: Yes, if you want your scores to add up you must stick with your team name for the duration of the tournament. No name changes allowed. Choose wisely.
Q: How many people can be on my team?
A: Team size limits vary by location but most venues allow a maximum of 7 people. However, the Winterfest TOURNAMENT of CHAMPIONS has a maximum team size of 7 regardless of venue team size limits.
Q: Can I play by myself?
A: Yes! It’s more fun,and your odds are better with some teammates, but solo players are always welcome, and you can play solo one week and bring 6 friends the next week.
Q: What do teams win?
A: Members of each winning team in their venue’s tournament will receive a custom medal. Winners of the TOURNAMENT OF CHAMPIONS will receive $1,400 cash for first place, $700 cash second place, and $400 cash for third place.
Q: What is the Tournament of Champions?
A: Every tournament winning team at each Syracuse Trivia Company venue is invited to the Syracuse Winterfest Tournament of Champions being held at the Downtown Marriott hotel Grand Ballroom at 4pm on Sunday February 27th. All the champions will compete against the best of all of Syracuse for their shot at big money!
Q: What if I miss a week or do poorly one week?
A: Every team’s lowest score is DROPPED on the final week. Obviously it’s to your advantage to make as many events as possible, but you can also miss as many as you want as well.
Q: Can we have substitutes?
A: YES! We don’t keep track of your roster, so even if none of your regular teammates can make it you can (and should) ask your friends to come play under your team name.
Q: What if my team is way behind?
A: The final week of the tournament is DOUBLE POINTS! That goes for bonus points, impossible question, and wagers- that means that the final question on the final night can be worth up to 400 points and could create an 800 point swing if the top team gets it wrong.
Q: How do I know how my team is doing in the tournament?
A: Every week, results along with tournament rankings will be posted on the blog section of your venue on our website https://syracusetrivianight/com/where
Q: What if I can’t make it to the Tournament of Champions or don’t want to go?
A: You’re under no obligation to participate in the tournament of champions. If your team wins the seven-week tournament and knows in advance that your team does not wish to participate in the Winterfest Tournament of Champions tell your host immediately and they will offer your spot to the second place team.
Q: Can I change venues part way through?
A: Yes, and no. You can play wherever whenever, however you may not transfer points from one venue to another UNLESS your original venue closed/cancelled their trivia nights. In either of those cases orphaned teams may make a one-time transfer of points to a new venue on the same day of the week.
Q: What if my venue canceled one trivia night but not all of them?
A: In the event of a randomly cancelled night that venue’s tournament will be shortened by one week. If the cancelled week was the final week an adjustment will be made to the previous rankings, dropping each team’s lowest score but NOT doubling the last week’s score. The leader after 6 weeks will be the tournament champion of that venue.
Q: Can I qualify by playing at the Happy Hour Challenge?
A: No. That game is structured differently and is a totally separate, but still very fun game.
