Live, in-the-flesh trivia is finally back! Come join us Monday nights at 8:00pm at The Surly Goat (West Hollywood) for a fully custom trivia game every week run by yours truly, Doodad.
Games usually last ~2 hrs, with slight fluctionations depending on the number of teams participating.
As always, it is FREE to play along - just please purchase a beverage or two while you're here (and please tip your bartender!). We do not serve food, but feel free to bring food or order delivery if you want.
If you want, you can read more about How It Works, Rules and some helpful Tips for winning.
Start of Season 3
Our first game back on Monday, June 21st will mark the official start of Season 3. And, our long-running “stay-at-home” series has finally(!) concluded.
Each week, your finishing position gives you a Team Beat Average (winning percentage). Your season score is the sum of the best 10 finishes for your team. This means that if you play every week, your worse scores get forgotten! Only your 10 best scores count. If you come in first 10 games, you'll have a perfect season score of 10. However, if you've only played 5 games, your score won't be as high as a team that's played 10. So the more times you come back and play, the better.
Start building your ranking and bragging rights now!
Join us Mondays at 8pm via the Zoom link below for a trivia game you can play along with at home. We'll keep doing this until the bar is allowed to safely re-open and we can hopefully return to some form of in-person trivia and all share a drink together.

How It Works
After each game I move the questions to the page for that week's game. You can find questions and results from all our past games as well as some fun stats under the "Rankings" menu.
There will be no trivia Monday, March 1.
March 8 and the weeks after are still TBD - depending on how quickly I heal from my surgery. If all goes well it will be sooner rather than later.
Stay tuned to the @doodadtrivia Instagram/Facebook page for updates confirming when we'll resume play.
Thanks all for playing with use this week. It was a great turnout! Hopefully we were able to provide you with a bit of distraction.
Below are the results for each team. These don't factor in to the "Season" standings but its fun to see who won nonetheless.
You can review the questions for this week here.
With bars closed, and in the interest of not encouraging social gathering, we will not be having trivia again until the bar is re-opened and it is deemed safe to gather.
In the meantime, I will be exploring ways to provide trivia entertainment to you virtually - to satisfy your desire to answer things, my desire to ask things, and provide entertainment that we all will need after a few weeks of isolation.
COVID-19 fever has swept the world, and we had four corona virus themed team names, two of which ended up winning our game tonight.

This week's questions here.
Another awesome turnout this week - this time to kick off the Surly Goat's 10 Year Anniversary Week. We had 16 teams competing and a couple of lead changes throughout the game. On the final round, one of the top teams forgot to double down and dropped dramatically in the standings (if they had doubled down, they still wouldn't have won, but it would have been much closer for them).
Our bartender Alexis made cookies that were delicious and also a very popular inspiration for team names this evening.
