All District Trivia venues are part of the NBC Sports Washington Trivia Challenge. Teams accumulate points monthly at their venues. This happens during your regular night of trivia, so the questions are not just sports - they're the usual randomness! There is no need to sign up or register - scores are automatically uploaded to the leader board. The monthly winners or "semi-finalists" battle it out for a spot in the finals. At the finals event, the champion team walks home with $5000 cash!
The NBC Sports Washington Trivia Challenge occurs twice a year in Summer and Winter seasons. The Summer season is from April through August with the semi-finals and finals taking place in September. The Winter season is from October through February with the semi-finals and finals taking place in March. The tournament runs concurrently with your normal weekly trivia event, so teams and scores are automatically entered. All you have to do is show up and play trivia. This also means that we give away $5,000 in cash TWICE a year!
At any and every District Trivia venue.
Because we wanted to provide you another way to win cash and great prizes for loving trivia.
There are multiple ways to qualify for the NBC Sports Washington Trivia Challenge:
- As a finalist... Every night at each venue, team scores are automatically uploaded to the leader board. No need to sign-up in advance. Each month, the highest cumulative score will be the semi-finalist for that month at your bar. At the end of the 5 month season, the semi-finalists will compete against each other during trivia at their venue. The top team will advance to the finals and represent your venue! Teams that qualify this way will receive 10 bonus points toward their score during the finals. It is a bonus designed to reward teams that have put in the time crawling your way to the top.
- As a Free Pass winner... We understand that life happens, so we offer teams a Free Pass. Throughout the tournament season, we randomly announce a Free Pass night at various venues. The 1st place team that night will automatically be entered into a spot at the finals. There will be no bonus points awarded to teams that qualify in this manner. If a team wins a Free Pass night and are already qualified as a finalist, the Free Pass will be awarded to the next team.
- As a Top 10 team... Some teams are exceptional trivia players and some venues can be ultra-competitive, so a team may have been narrowly beat out in the semi-finals. We take all the scores for all teams across the entire season and divide that number by the number of events held at the venue. The Top 10 teams each earn a spot in the finals.
