On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at 7 p.m., the finest minds in the St. Louis area will be gathering to engage in a trivia contest to determine who has supreme knowledge of St. Louis sports. And those of us who weren’t invited to that are gonna have a trivia night of our own.
Sign up below if you are interested in participating in a St. Louis sports-themed trivia night. There will, of course, be plenty of baseball questions, but also categories surrounding football, hockey, and the other sports teams of St. Louis. Five rounds of ten questions each; if there is a tie for first place at the end, there will be a tiebreaker question. It is free to play and thus the prize of zero dollars will reflect it. But unlike trivia nights at bars (hey, remember those?), drinks are way cheaper. So there’s that.
You can sign up with a team of other players–we’re looking to keep the number of players per team to six or less–or you can sign up alone and I can assign you to a team. The event will take place over Zoom; a link will be provided after you sign up, but in order to make sure the event isn’t overrun by an unexpected rush of people at the last minute due to space limitations, please keep the link between yourself and your teammates.
If you haven’t participated in Zoom trivia nights before, here’s the basic format: after a round of questions is read, you will be added to separate breakout rooms with your teams and given 5-10 minutes to discuss your answers. Once the time has elapsed, a representative will privately send your answers to me and I will keep a tally.
You might be asking yourself, “Well, that seems really easy to cheat on, isn’t it?” And the answer is yes! It’s really easy to cheat! We’re depending on the honor system here. You win nothing if you get every question right–you’ll just have wasted a couple hours of your own time and put a damper on the good times of others. So don’t be a jerk.
I don’t envision maxing out capacity, but if we do, I’ll try to let you know promptly; if we don’t, I’ll send you a link. Here’s hoping to a good, socially distant time.
