Excesss classic PUB-STYLE trivia: grab a score sheet and a pen - time to write down your team's answers!

A timeless classic - if you are in to that kind of thing... Classic pen-and-paper PUB-STYLE trivia!

We make a lot of jokes about classic pub-style trivia. To us, it kind of feels like taking a test... in a bar... for fun... But if that is what you want, we can absolutely make it happen.


We are more than happy to bring our scoresheets, and a box full of writing utensils, and slowly go through a handful of questions for your groups to answer.


Sure, it is fewer questions being asked than our gameshow-style trivia, and yes, you have to wait as scores are tallied afterwards... but hey!- at least it IS still a fun evening of trivia, so it is totally cool by us!

Everyone be quiet! The bar is taking a test! No cheating!


Remember- the more people that are playing, the longer it takes to get everyone's sheets handed out, collected, scored, and returned!!!

But I suppose that gives more time for everyone to drink more - so let's do it!


We still try to spice things up with some multimedia questions.

We tie into house a/v and can post pics,vids, or play sound clips/ songs and ask for you to write down your answers/guesses.



We can do any type of trivia you or your patrons desire - so if pub-style is what you crave, we are happy to oblige.


We are a locally owned and operated company!

Support local! Buy local! Play trivia local!


Your host writes your trivia

Other companies- maybe not so much! Excesss Trivia hosts take category suggestions each and every week- and write trivia around YOUR requested subjects, and to a difficulty level appropriate to the crowd showing up! Pub trivia seems especially popular for special events, and themed nights.


For as long as there has been bars, there has been somebody in the place trying to show off how much they know. So who are we to argue?

OK... by now it is pretty obvious we really do like picking on ye old trivia format, but sometimes it is what is wanted or needed. You can trust your Excesss Trivia host professionals to run a fun game if thats the flavor of trivia desired.


Pub Trivia! Sharpen your wits- and your pencil!

Pub-style is ok we guess... but nothing compares to the fast-paced, ring-in-first-to-answer gameshow-action of our Jeopardy style, buzzer-based trivia trivia!
