What is the Tournament Final Series? This is a chance for the best players of QuizzaMe to come together to not only find the best QuizzaMe teams in Australia, but to have a massive night of quizzing and fun!
How does it work? Each venue will keep a scoreboard over an 8 week period. Winning teams will get the chance to represent their venue at the Finals.
Is there a cost? No, during the 8 week period QuizzaMe will still be free to play for all players, and there is no cost to register a team for the Tournament Series.
Do you have to play every week? Not at all! You can play as often as you like. However, you need to play in order to earn points towards the series.
Can we qualify at more than 1 venue? No. You may still play at multiple venues, but you must decide which venue you wish to represent, and note this on your registration.
Do we need to pick a team name? Yes, you will need to have a team name picked out and locked in. Any teams that submit an inappropriate team name will be asked to think of another team name.
Can we change our team name? NO! You must decide on a team name and keep that name through the Finals series, NO EXCEPTIONS.
What if someone else has the same team name? Each team will have a number after their name (eg Trivia Newton John 1 & Trivia Newton John 2) and will be numbered in the order that your team is registered.
Is there a limit to the number of players in a team? There is a minimum of 2 players and a maximum of 8 players per team. All players must play at least 2 out of the 8 weeks in that team (no ring-ins!) EVERYONE on your table needs a ticket, whether they are playing or not. While this is a family friendly event you must buy any children attending a ticket and they are your responsibility. Any children that are being disruptive will be asked to leave the main Tournament area
