Trivia Nationals

Post by Austin Powers » Wed Dec 19, 2018 9:13 pm

If you had not heard about this, then I wanted to post this here to let you know about it:

http://trivianationals.org

It's not TCONA. It's not TCONA's successor. More just a very similar event run by enthusiastic trivia folk, that just so happens to be at the Tropicana in August.

It's set up to run differently, as a nonprofit, with anything made as "profit" going back to helpers and question writers.

I very much believe it's going to be a blast.

If you have questions, I might be able to answer them, or point you towards the person who can.

Thanks

I am curious to know the difference between this and the Trivia Championships Of North America. I have been debating on going there every year, but always had other plans or ran into financial problems or sometimes both.
Just a person who loves game shows.

Different people running it, but much of the content will be the same...and 5x5 is returning.

And Learned League Live will be there, too.

Another planned difference is that they wanted to do tiered events. For example, they want to do two divisions for quiz bowl, to make it more enjoyable for some of the less uh aggressive teams.

Looks great, but I'm firmly perched on my fence at this point
