Mark your calendars, Oregonians!

It’s week 17 of the Pub Champions Trivia League! With just four weeks left until the end of the 21-week season, this is the perfect time to check your team’s score on your venue’s location page and see your chances of making it to the State Championship.

How does a team get a guaranteed spot?
The team at each venue with the 12 best nightly scores will be crowned the Venue Champion – and get first dibs on a spot at the State Championship. After the season ends on Sunday, 6/2, all Venue Champions will be able to RSVP for the State Championship on Monday, 6/3.

What happens next for everyone else?
The next day, Tuesday, 6/4, any team that has played at least fifteen games at any combination of venues throughout the season can RSVP for remaining spots (and there will likely be spots remaining!). Finally, if space remains, teams who’ve played a minimum of eight games can RSVP on Wednesday, 6/5. These additional chances to RSVP are a great option for new League teams… or those who tend to do more drinking than thinking. 

What are the other important dates?
The State Championship will take place on Saturday, 6/15. The top three teams there will be eligible to go on to the first-ever Sporcle Live National Championship at TriviaCon in Las Vegas the weekend of Apil 3rd-5th, 2020.

About Last Week…

One of the hardest final questions we’ve ever had was asked last Tuesday, 4/23. Only 7.97% of teams answered correctly! Were you one of them?

The question was, “The U.S. version of Survivor has aired thirteen seasons where the subtitle of the season is the name of a country. Which of those countries is largest by total area?”

You could approach this question by either relying on your encyclopedic knowledge of Survivor’s 38 seasons(!), or by going through largest countries by area and matching them to the subtitles. Since Survivor hasn’t yet been set in Russia, Canada, or the U.S., China was the answer!
