Five Trivia Game Rules

Gather your force!

The first step is to gather your force, in other words, your team. In trivia games, you generally start by choosing your teammates. Try to assemble your team based on their skills. At the end of the day, trivia games are all about knowledge. After that, you can be creative and choose your team name.

Choose the trivia master!

The second step is designating a trivia master. Throughout the game, trivia masters will read the questions and keep the scores.

Decide on the theme!

Deciding on the theme may not be the most critical part of the game, but it is essential. The game's theme will define the faith of your team and the game. There are several ways to choose a theme, but we recommend picking it randomly. For instance, everyone could write their theme suggestion on paper and put it in a box. Then, the trivia master will randomly choose a paper from the box. Voilà, now you have the theme of the game.

Set the rules!

There will be eight rounds, with two extra rounds in case of a tie. Each round comprises ten questions from the chosen theme. Each question will make the team a point, and there are no half points for half answers. You all have one minute for each question. After the fourth round, you might take a break.

Have fun!

The final step is both the easiest and the hardest. After all, trivia games are fun and complex because they present a challenge. However, we're sure that after the second round, you'll develop a taste for the bittersweet spirit of trivia games.


Trivia games are some of the simplest, fastest, and most accessible games worldwide. You have fun while being challenged by the competition. We are sure that you’ll also love the competition. 

Keep in mind that these rules are the base of the game. Therefore, you can be creative and adjust these rules according to your team size. We wish you a great game!
