Grab a drink, feel free to sit on the good sofa, and say hi to your new friends. They’re all around you. We have some crazy events in the pipeline, and we’re happy to share them with you. Dig it.
If you’re even slightly familiar with our jams, then you’re familiar with the Quiz Cup of New York, a city-wide competition to find the best trivia team in New York. You should play this. Here’s why:
- First prize is $1000, plus free passage to the 6th Annual Trivia Championships of North America in Las Vegas the weekend of August 12-14, 2016.
- Second place is $200, plus a prize pack courtesy of American Geode and Brooklyn Brazilian Ju Jitsu.
- Third place gets a prize pack valued at $200 from The Astoria Bookshop and NewsMeister.
- All participants will get a sweet goodie bag of sponsor prizes.
The action begins the week of February 28, 2016, and runs for eight weeks, with the grand final happening on Saturday, April 30. Teams can have up to six players, and there’s going to be a ton of special events happening throughout the QCNY season for subscribers only.
You play by coming to any one of our regular TriviaNYC events, and playing as you normally do. You not only get to play on the day, but you also get QCNY points, which count toward your total. We’ll be posting the results daily online, and you can play more than once a week if you like. (Only your best score every week counts.) The full rules are here.
The eight-week season is just $50 for the whole team. That’s a tiny bag of shells, I know, but we just want to make sure you have the chance to play with us in what’s still an early version of what will grow very soon into a much larger competition. When we’re doing this at Giants Stadium in a few years, you’ll be able to wear your QCNY ’16 swag with cooler-than-thou pride. Come join us!
NOTE: TCONA prize includes hotel & free registrations for four people. At the moment, airfare is not included; this may change. All other prizes may eventually be larger upon receipt, depending on further sponsorship.
