Yes, we’ve been keeping track! Are you curious about how you did at Video Game Trivia? How about on your first quiz? Want to see how you compared to the other teams on a specific category? We’ve got you covered! Check out the awesome team names and results from the 2016-2017 season of Question Block Pub Quiz trivia! We’ll keep track of every team in every category for every event! Congrats to the winning teams!
The Question Block is a multi-media videogame themed standard Pub Quiz, featuring teams of up to 6 competing for prizes! The game lasts approximately 2 hours with a 15 minute half-time break. There are 5 Regular Rounds, 1 Half-Time Round, and a Final Round. Here is how it works:
We allow teams of up to 6 players. Each team pays an entry fee, with 100% of the entry fee going towards the prize pool. Each team is free to come up with any name they want for every game, but teams interested in joining a season pass should make sure the GM associates their team with their past scores. For season pass teams, There must be at least two people who have attended more than 75% of the total trivia nights that the team has attended as a whole.
Teams are responsible for correcting each other’s answers after each round. When completed, answer sheets are brought up to the game master.
The first 3 rounds, and rounds 4 and 5 are all “Regular Rounds,” meaning all questions are worth 1 point unless otherwise noted (occasionally some questions will be worth more points or have multiple answers). Wrong answers in regular rounds DO NOT count against a team’s score.
Half-Time Bonus Round
The Half-Time Bonus Round is a fun, quick round for individuals (not teams!) to win prizes! The Half-Time Bonus Round is purely for fun and to give away free prizes and beer; answers DO NOT count toward a team’s final score.
The Final Round
The Final Round features 5 increasingly difficult questions, each worth more points than the last, and wrong answers WILL count against your score! Point values increase from 1 point for question 1 to 5 points for question 5. Any incorrect answers will count against your final score, so teams have an opportunity to win or lose 15 points.
After the Final Round, we will recap each team’s scores. The winner will receive a cash prize!
Text rounds are straightforward questions like many of the other questions you’ve seen before.
Graphic Rounds will show you a screenshot from a game, or artwork, or an advertisement, character, person, or any other image and ask you a question about it.
Non-Video Game Rounds
We’ll cover anything that isn’t a video game. Usually related to something going on that month.
Audio & Video Rounds
We’ll play a clip from a video game or TV show, movie, or some other piece of related media and ask you a question about it.
Leagues will track your progress over the season. League finalists will receive special benefits, and only League teams are allowed into the season championship games.
