TORONTO TRIVIA AT ITS BEST!

 

Which Canadian province has the longest coastline?     

What is the fastest two-legged creature on Earth?

What book's subtitle is "The Modern Prometheus"?

Do you know the answers without using Google? if so, then you're all set to play Headscratchers Trivia, Toronto's best  trivia play every week at Stout Irish Pub.   Welcome to our guide on how to win prizes and astonish your friends at the best trivia in town!

Here's how to play trivia in six simple steps:

STEP 1:  MONDAY QUIZ OR TUESDAY TRIVIA?

Headscratchers Trivia is played every Monday and Tuesday night at 7:30 sharp!

Each week, the same questions are asked on both trivia nights. Plan to come to one or the other. And yes, the trivia host WILL remember you - even if you wear a fake moustache.

 

STEP 2:   SELECT YOUR TRIVIA TEAM

Headscratchers Trivia is designed for teams of 1 - 6 trivia players. If your trivia team has more than 6 players, you will lose 10 points for each additional trivia player.

While Headscratchers Trivia is an all-ages event, we recommend players be 16 years or older.

 

STEP 3:   GO TO STOUT IRISH PUB

Stout Irish Pub is at 221 Carlton, at the corner of Parliament. If coming by TTC take either the 501 streetcar east from College or the 64 Parliament south from Castle Frank. 

Whether it's the Monday Quiz or Tuesday Trivia, many trivia teams arrive early. We always recommend arriving by 6:30 PM.

Please note that Stout Irish Pub does not take reservations for trivia teams.

 

STEP 4:  SELECT THE BEST TRIVIA TEAM NAME?

Maybe you're Quiz Khalifa? Or you've decided to be the Quizzy McGuires? Just remember: picking your trivia team name is the hardest and most important decision you'll ever make. Choose wisely!

STEP 5:   PLAY TRIVIA!

Headscratchers trivia has many types of games and the host always explains them before we play.

  • QUESTION AND ANSWER: This is exactly the game you think it is. We ask you a question and you write down the answer.    

  • NAME THAT TUNE: We give you ten seconds of a song. You give us the name of the song and the name of the artist or band.

  •  MULTIPLE CHOICE: You have a 20% chance of being perfect!

  •  MATCH GAME: Match the country with its capital city. Or the Shakespearian play with the character who stars in it. The topic changes every week!

  •  IMAGE ROUND: Answer questions based on images we provide.

  •  OTHER GAMES: Spelling bees, name that movie, fill in the song lyrics.... there are new games every week!
