What is that?!
The thought of Quiz Nights, to many people has the mixed emotion of; “…It could be fun” and “rather not embarrass myself in a room full of strangers for not knowing the Capital of Sweden!”
Many don’t actually realize though how popular and how awesome being apart of a Trivia night can really be.
Not to mention winning prizes.
Getting friends together for friendly competition on a mid week night has so many benefits and much history as well. It’s not about getting every answer right, it’s about kicking ass and if you can’t-enjoying the round of shots the winning team buy the players.
Originally established in the UK back in the 1970’s to get people into pubs on quieter nights. Burns and Porter, the first company to launch Quiz night, didn’t know how rapidly it would take off. Over the next few years Quiz grew from just 30 teams to over 10,000 playing each week.
Can you believe in a 2009 study it showed the number of weekly quizzes in the UK was at 22,445! So if you ever thought Trivia was just a bunch of questions for teams of geeks, think again!
Nowadays you ask someone to join in on a random event, they always ask Why?.. as if there needs to be a reason!…Well…
Quiz, or Trivia nights have been known as fund-raising events, promotions for pubs and theme nights for a great time for friends and families. That’s exactly what you’ll find at the Train. Ranging from topics of general knowledge to the nitty gritty weird and wonderful of science and everything in between. Want to get in the know of Vintage Cars to win over that guy you’ve been day dreaming of- find yourself a quiz night!
For some, Pub Quiz is just a way to break the routine of the week. An hour or two away from the kids to be you again. Time to let your hair down after a really tedious day at the office or it’s merely just time to …stop. To socialise, meet new people and have a great time showing off all those years of obsessing over the documentaries that filled the weeks TV guide.
So really, what makes Quiz night so entertaining? Well, that answer is up to you. Socially awkward? Socialise without small talk!
Date night? Take off the pressure of ‘let’s get to know each-other!’
Matched with the perfect brew, or craft beer on tap to enjoy with bar combos and meal specials- there really is some great memories to be made around an answer sheet and a random stranger that becomes that favourite person of yours- The Quiz Master.
No more thinking that’s just for old people, or the youngsters; Quiz is for all!
Thursday at 19:30- see you at The Train
