How long is trivia night normally?
I try to keep mine to 2-2.5 hours by moving questions along and minimizing idle chatter.

To answer the other question: 8:30 PM Eastern, 5:30 PM Pacific, do the math otherwise.

TONIGHT'S RULES

  • We will continue the "message the host" format. All answers are to be private messaged to the host.
  • Questions will be worth 2 points. If no one answers correctly on the first try, the second try will be worth 1 point. If there is more than one answer to a question, you will receive credit for each correct answer unless I state that all answers are required for credit.
  • There will be bonuses. Bonuses are open to all players, not just those that answered correctly. Bonuses will be worth 2 points if you answered the original question correctly, 1 point if you didn't.
  • There will be 50 regular questions and then a couple of special ones. Like we used to do.
  • If I ask "where" without specifying, I will accept a route number or city, assuming there is a nearby city.
