The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 19, 2017

Be a part of Brooklyn's favorite Trivia Tournament with John Hodgman as you raise funds to provide free creative writing programs to NYC public school students! All proceeds from the event go towards 826NYC programming. Check out our website to learn more about the fantastic work of 826NYC. Get your team together for a night of full-bodied beer and laughter (plus some fierce competition) at The Bell House (149 7th St, Brooklyn, NY 11215)! Gameplay will begin promptly at 730PM on April 19th.

 

How the game works:

 

25 Questions selected and presented by quizmaster Hodgman

25 Teams: You and four friends versus 24 other teams 

 2 First place prizes (tickets to The Daily Show and gift certificates to Nitehawk Cinema)

 2 Prizes for top individual fundraisers (2 round-trip tickets via JetBlue for both the top individual fundraiser and the second to top individual fundraiser)

 

Our unbelievably challenging questions would stump even the greatest trivia connoisseur, so we encourage you to raise more money than your competitors so you can cheat your way to the top! It should be noted that all teams are expected to set a minimum fundraising goal of $1,250. All money raised by your team can be used to purchase cheats at the beginning of each round. Some choice cheats you and your team can take advantage of:
