Trivia for Cheaters

FWIW: Trivia for Cheaters is a fast-paced trivia competition like none other. Teams of two to four people raise funds prior to the event, which they will then use to cheat their way through three rounds of pop trivia centered on our favorite topics: books, radio, and the internet.

Each registered team sets a goal to raise $826 or more with which they can purchase cheats. Register now to build your personal fundraising page. 

Questions range in difficulty from, “everyone knows that” to “obscure factoid”. Cheats include “Five Brains Are Better Than Four”, in which teams can choose to add an extra member, and “Computers R Smart But R They Smarter Than Us”, which allows teams the use of one smartphone during gameplay.

Between rounds, competing teams and spectators alike will have fun Asking Alex Almost Anything, playing Emoji Translator, and winning prizes while sipping on drink specials provided by North Peak Beer and the Pretzel Bar.
