For a person, a couple, or even a group of people, sometimes there needs to be a night out to break up the monotony of everyday life. People can get stuck in routines and sometimes they stop doing anything fun. Sometimes, even just going to the same old bars, restaurants, and even peoples’ houses can get a little old. Sometimes people want something new, something different, to entertain them.
A lot of people don’t think about it, but pub trivia can be an absolutely great activity to break up the usual routine. It’s not something a lot of people think about doing on a regular basis, but it’s something that everyone can have a good time playing. In fact, there’s something for everyone in a friendly, competitive night out playing trivia. A person can be completely sober or be enjoying a few cocktails, but still be entertained playing pub trivia. That is one of the beautiful things about this game. Unlike going to a bar solely to drink, trivia offers something for everyone, even people who don’t drink much. When a person is at a bar playing pub trivia, he or she is focused on that, so the things that normally take precedent in a bar take the sideline.
What makes playing trivia with a group of friends out in a bar or a pub so much more refreshing than simply sitting at home playing a game of Trivial Pursuit? Well, the most important thing about pub trivia is that it is really competitive, against people that do not know each other at all. Teams are often made of 4-6 friends and they compete against every other team in the pub that happens to be playing trivia. Pub trivia is also uniquely fun in that it’s very likely that one person on a team won’t dominate like it other types of trivia games. There are questions in every category, from pop culture, to music, to history, to current events, technology, and even local questions. The beautiful thing about pub trivia is that the guy asking the questions has control over the questions. He’s often not reading them from a card or picking the questions out of a box, but he has taken the time to prepare the questions in advance.
Pub trivia can be a great way to pass time with friends. It is cheap (usually no more expensive than going to a bar without playing trivia), it is fun, and all people can play. People from young to old, people that drink, and people that don’t even drink can all come together and just have a good time.
