Boat Trivia Events, Themed Trivia Harbour Cruises

IQ TRIVIA began at a pub in Canberra, and has branched out into other locations on other nights of the week. Our quizzes tend to be full of questions that people won’t necessarily know right away, but that they will enjoy debating with their friends. Questions that make patrons think tend to hold their interest and make them into regulars.

At our first venue we built up a solid core of regular trivia players on what was for them an otherwise quiet night. On big nights we had over 100 people, and most nights we wound up with 60-70 in a relatively small venue, all of whom spent money and most of whom wound up having dinner. Other venues that we have taken on since then have also had around 100.

New trivia nights tend to take some time to build up but with consistency and promotion other venues can certainly achieve similar results.

The format of our quizzes is two rounds of 20 questions. Answers are marked at halftime so people know how they’re doing and have time to order another round of drinks.

The questions cover a broad range of subjects including sport, history, music, TV and film, food and drink, literature, local interest, geography, science, and many other subjects. There are picture questions, audio questions, and bonus questions, where we ask a question and the first team to write down the correct answer and show it to the host wins a small prize (usually a drink or a small bar voucher) or a bonus point.
