Brewing Up the Perfect Trivia Show

A touch of history here, a little entertainment there, and finally, a geography halftime that could make or break the first round. As you take a sip of your favorite beer, you may or may not realize how much these questions have in common with your drink. Just as the lager, stout or other beer that might be sitting in front of you was brewed; the Trivia show also went through an important process.

I grew up in a household that tuned in to Jeopardy! every night of the week. I never realized that knowing, “A dressy term for hearts, spades, diamonds or clubs”, would help me out as an adult. Now I write and design shows for our clients across the nation. Outside of the office, I make it a point to head to the slopes at least a few times during the winter and if I told you that I didn’t like much TV, I’d be lying. I am a big fan of many series, as well as the reality shows on stations like History and A&E.

Crafting the perfect Question

With every product consumed, it is important to figure out the same thing.  It’s a simple question really. What do the folks playing, or drinking, want to receive out of their weekly show or beer?  The outcome involves knowing the preferred taste of those involved and crafting ingredients together to achieve the most positive experience possible.

 

There are several categories to choose from when creating a show, but it is important to take those categories and put them together in a way that flows.

Use Ingredients Everyone Loves

After choosing the ingredients, it’s time to start the process.  As any lager or stout has a mostly universal taste, there are small additions made to place a product above the rest. It is extremely important to have that tried-and-true product, but there are variants to be offered to appease those looking to switch up their plans. Think of Feud as the “Light” version of Last Call Trivia’s traditional Trivia product.

 

There are also those “Seasonal” shows.  They have all of the elements of a normal show, but with something added to cater to a specific topic.  Whether it’s a special sports show or a show about a popular TV show or movie, the themed shows can be viewed as Last Call Trivia’s seasonal releases.

 

A show dedicated to The Walking Dead could parallel a pumpkin beer from a popular brewery.

Something for Everyone

All of the shows have the same goal. Some people enjoy playing Trivia, some like Feud, and others want a collection of everything.  What everyone wants is an event that they can enjoy with their friends. Last Call Trivia’s shows all come in the same bottle, but the difference comes from the label on the front, and the ingredients inside. There might be a different taste, but the source of every bottle is aimed at the same outcome, a good time with friends.
