No. We’ve built Stage Time Trivia for comedians, but it’s also for anyone with an outgoing personality that is comfortable speaking in front of an audience.
Every game is designed to run between 1.5 and 2 hours, approximately the same length as a live comedy show.
You could, and plenty of people do, write and run their own trivia nights. However, it can take several hours of work to write and build your own trivia and not everyone has that kind of time or desire. Stage Time Trivia does all of the work for you, allowing you to just show up and host a fun night of trivia without having to worry about the content. Each week’s game is written and compiled creatively by professional comedians and all of our content is fact checked and accurate.
If you already host a trivia night somewhere why not try out Stage Time Trivia and offer your players a refreshing change of pace? Changing up the format of your trivia night is a great way to get regulars excited, spark interest from former players, and attract new players. Players are always interested when they hear about “the new Stage Time Trivia night, written and hosted by comedians.”
Currently, yes, at this time we only offer a monthly subscription. Stage Time Trivia is designed for weekly trivia nights and provides a fresh, topical trivia each and every week. In the future we will be offering single downloads and individual themed downloads for one night events.
There is no contract or commitment. You simply sign up for our service and are billed monthly. You can discontinue at any time.
Each download is licensed for use at one location. If you run the same trivia game at multiple venues you will need to pay for an additional subscription per location.
We do our best to provide a bulletproof trivia by fact checking all of our content and running it locally ourselves to uncover any errors, but occasionally a typo or incorrect piece of information might get past us. If this comes up in your live game simply use your best discretion as to how to handle it. You can replace the question with one from our bank of alternative questions, or some hosts will award partial credit or bonus points.
This will be covered in greater detail in an upcoming blog post, and depends on a number of factors, but generally speaking a venue will pay between $100-200 per night to have trivia provided and hosted by a professional.
The rules players must follow during trivia are very simple:
Rule #1 – NO CELL PHONES! This doesn’t necessarily mean people can’t have and use their phones for texting and personal things, but they cannot use their phones to look up answers or help them with the game. Other than demanding all phones put away there is no bulletproof way to enforce this rule without being a dick. It is very much an “honor system”.
Rule #2 – DO NOT SHOUT OUT ANSWERS!
Rule #3 – THE TRIVIA HOST HAS THE FINAL SAY ON ALL ANSWERS! This rule exists to give the host full control, avoid disputes, and keep the game running smoothly. Argumentative players may dispute answers and argue minute details if they think it will help their score, but this settles it.
Yes. Once you sign up your subscription will automatically renew every 4 weeks for $100 until you cancel it.
