Wrap up your work day or kick off your team's virtual happy hour with the Rosslyn Rivals Trivia Challenge, taking place virtually every Thursday at 5 p.m., beginning on September 10th and ending on October 8th! All games will be a 30-question multiple choice quiz, with the below themes by date:
- Thursday, September 10th - General Trivia
- Thursday, September 17th - Washington D.C. Area Trivia
- Thursday, September 24th - General Trivia
- Thursday, October 1st - Pop Culture Trivia
- Thursday, October 8th - General Trivia
The game will pool individual player's points to create an average team score. The faster you respond with the correct answer, the more points you score! Each member of the top scoring team for every game will receive a Rosslyn swag package, courtesy of the Rosslyn BID! (The Rosslyn BID will reach out directly to the winners so they can claim their prize.)
In addition, participation in each game will gain your team points to qualify for our three-game championship round! The top twelve point-scoring teams will qualify to the first round of the championships, and the points for each game will be scored as below:
- 1 point - all teams in place 16 and higher
- 2 points - teams in place 11 - 15
- 3 points - teams in place 6 - 10
- 4 points - teams in 4th and 5th place
- 5 points - 3rd place team
- 6 points - 2nd place team
- 7 points - 1st place team
Be sure to check the leaderboard on this page after every game to see how your team ranks. After the last of the qualifying games on October 8, the Rosslyn BID will reach out directly to all qualifying teams with information on the championship round game format. In the event of a tie at the end of the series for a qualifying spot, the first tie-breaker will be awarded to the team that has competed in the most events out of the five. If that number is equal, the win will be awarded to the team with the highest average score. Participation in every game is not necessary to qualify for the championship round, but it does give your team the best chance to qualify!
The championship rounds will take place on the below dates, each at 5 p.m.:
- Game #1 on Thursday, October 15th - top 12 teams from qualifying rounds
- Game #2 on Thursday, October 22nd - top nine teams from Game #1
- Game #3 on Thursday, October 29th - top six teams from Game #2
In addition to the first place team winning bragging rights and a trophy, the top four point-scoring teams from the final game on October 29 will win a gift card to their Rosslyn Rewards restaurant of choice at the following values: 4th place - $75 gift card, 3rd place - $100 gift card, 2nd place - $125 gift card, and 1st place - $150 gift card.
Space is limited to 50 teams, and to be eligible to claim the 1st place prize, and you must have a minimum of 3 individual players or a maximum of 10 players. Businesses are allowed to have more than one team register. To register, please have your group leader register your company through this Eventbrite page - your company name will be your team name. All teams MUST be registered via Eventbrite in advance for each date you plan on participating, as team names will be manually entered into the game. Registration will close at 11 a.m. on the day of each event.
Team members will log in to the game using the web link sent to group leaders after completing registration, and the link will work on your phone or computer. The team leaders will need to send the event link to their participants and remind them of their team name. A reminder email will be sent by 1 p.m. on the day of each event to all team leaders. On the trivia sign-in page, each player will be prompted to enter their full name and email address, and then select their company from the drop-down menu. After signing in, you will be taken directly to the countdown clock, beginning 1 hour prior to the start of the game. Once the clock hits zero, the game will begin!
We encourage you to set up a Zoom or Teams meeting so you can work together as a team to answer questions! Happy quizzing!
