This Week in iQ Trivia – 28 March 2020

It’s been one hell of a week!

First of all, we have a LOT of people to thank.

Our hosts for helping with ideas and testing and moral support, our venues for trying whatever they could to enable us to stick with regular shows, our customers who are still booking us for custom shows.  (And may of whom share are somewhat warped sense of humour.

 

And our players, who have made this transition possible.  We have been simultaneously delighted, impressed, and inspired by the leve of support our players have shown in this difficult time, and that makes us even more determined to continue to deliver Australia’s most interesting trivia.

Trivia is important to us.

We can’t keep operating without people who like our style of trivia.

Anyway, here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.

In the space of a few days, we have transitioned to operating entirely online.

A couple of weeks ago you could have gone to any of our regular venues for dinner, drinks, and Australia’s most interesting trivia. Well you still can. You just have to provide your own dinner & drinks at home.

But we’ve got plenty of quizzes still operating online with a number of our hosts, so you will never have to go without your usual trivia fix.

We’ve had players from the US, the Philippines, and Finland joining our Australian regulars, and two of our regulars playing against each other while one of them was in self-isolation.

Quizzes are generally at 8pm on our discord server. Pay attention to our Facebook page and our Online Quizzing page for more details.

Lactose is when you are missing your toes.

It’s tougher to monitor cheating on online trivia, but one player was in a video chat with our host who noted that a his face literally lit up when he Googled the answer, you know, from

Interesting typos – The Mexican Hate Dance

The darkest part of a shadow isn’t the umbra, it’s the “U can’t see me zone”.

One of our players couldn’t recall the name of James Earl Jones, so he went with “Mufasa”.

Wash your damn hands, and we will see you next week.  (Though not literally of course.)
