From 10/18 to 11/22, Buzztime locations battled it out at The Ultimate Showdown Trivia Contest. Every Tuesday, players across the nation and in Canada gathered at their respective trivia spots to represent their bar. A notoriously difficult trivia game, participants had to dominate lightning rounds, themed category quizzes, and more to come out on top! From baseball to pharaohs to astronomy, the teams really had to know it all.
At the beginning of the competition, more than 1,000 sites entered the competition with total overall gameplay at 3,394. After a two-week qualifier round, the Top 200 locations were randomly sorted into one of four divisions: Red, Blue, Green, or Purple. Four weeks later, we crowned the winners of each Division:
Players not only showed up to score, but they also blasted their team pride across social media using #UltimateShowdown16. From team pics to their pre-game rituals, locations across the nation shared how their bar was bringing its A-game. Buzztime was live on social media every week before game time and it was great to see players from bars all around the country getting so involved!
