NTN Trivia

NTN Trivia Screen

My drug of choice lately has been NTN Trivia. For those of you unfamiliar with it, it is a nationwide trivia competition played at bars and restaurants. Each bar has the trivia boxes that you use to answer the questions that appear on various TV screens in the bar. They have in-bar and national rankings. I used to play NTN trivia a lot back in 1997 when I first went to college. I even amassed over 250,000 "Player’s Plus Points." Each game you play gives you 500-1000 points, so you can tell I played quite a lot, since all of those points came in a 8-month time period.

A local wings place has the trivia, and I just can’t resist the lure of hanging out with Jennifer, playing trivia, and eating spicy-garlic wings. Just so you know, my handle is sthil, short for my patron saint, saint Hilary. Last light I won most of the games we played, except the Sci-fi trivia…I bombed that one! If you are interested in trivia, I suggest you click on the link above and find a local place that has it. It’s pretty darn fun.

The image on the left gives you an idea of how NTN is played. This is the local rankings for one particular game. I am not on there yet, even though I did beat the guy at the top, TOMHH, twice last night.
