Washington Independent Trivia Start-Ups 2023

Qualifying Rules

  • Qualifying period will be from April 10th - May 19th

  • Max 7 players per team. If someone is seated/standing with you during trivia, they count towards your number of players. Teams with more than 7 players are not eligible to receive tournament points. 

  • Each trivia will be scored as follows

    • First Place - 10

    • Second Place - 7

    • Third Place -  4

    • “Participation Points” - 2

  • Any score/place discrepancy must be taken care of before the next trivia by emailing wearetriviahosts@gmail.com, or DMing us @capcitytrivia

  • Trivia locations with an average of less than 10 teams will have one qualifier for the final. Locations with ten or more teams will be eligible for a wildcard qualifier. This will be noted on tournament rankings page

  • Standings will be posted weekly at our website CapCityTrivia.com

  • You may only qualify at one location. If we find out you are “double dipping” at other locations, you will be disqualified from entry to the final. 

  • Only standard trivia games will be eligible for the final; specialty trivia are not eligible

  • All teams are still eligible for the weekly trivia prize as per usual

  • The Final will be held at MetroBar in Washington, DC, on Sunday June 4th. If you qualify and are unable to attend, please notify us so we can notify your replacements

  • You must provide an email to your host to track points. While it is easier to just use the same team name, as long as you notify your host of your name changes, then we can track your points

  • While we love that you love our trivia, the final will be a mixed format incorporating elements of each trivia group participating. No one has played the format before, so no one is at a disadvantage

  • For additional details and information, feel free to visit the official for the tournament, https://dcbattleofwits.com/. Qualifying rules are different for each trivia group, so please direct specific qualifying questions to your respective host and their company.
