New York Smartphone Trivia League

New York's premier Smartphone Trivia League puts your general knowledge skills to the test in a fast-paced trivia environment with challenges in between rounds for a competitive twist!

The Gameplay

  • It's FREE TO PLAY and open to the public.
  • There is no limit on the number of team members a team can have, but we do recommend team sizes of no more than 8 (larger teams tend to play slower and lose out on the speed bonus points).
  • Only one device per team. Each team must have the SpeedQuizzing Virtual Buzzer App downloaded on their smartphone or tablet device and be connected to our quiz hub in order to play. You can download the app in the App Store or Google Play Store.
  • Questions are read over a PA system, and teams will have no more than 10 SECONDS to answer.

  • The host will give all the necessary instructions per round during the event.
  • There are 4 ROUNDS of questions with bonus point questions between each round.
  • Games typically lasts 2 HOURS. 

  • If you haven't played before, we recommend arriving early during the team check-in time (30 minutes before the first question is read). This way, you can make sure you have a seat, can connect to the game network with no issue, and take care of all your pre-game bonus point opportunities. This is also a great time to order food and drinks; there are always specials on trivia nights!
  • At the end of ROUND 4, a prize is awarded to the top team(s), and their team photo will be posted on our Facebook and Instagram channels for all to see!

The League Round

There is one final round played at the end of the night, and this round is the only round that counts towards your League Standing.
  • A League Season is 12 WEEKS.
  • You can play trivia as many times as you would like each week. We only take your highest score that week and count it towards your League Standing.
  • The team with the highest cumulative score at the end of 12 weeks will win the New York Smartphone Trivia League Cup!

  • If your score is the highest across all participating states, you'll win the Ultimate Grand Prize which is announced at the beginning of each League Season.
  • For HOST BARS and LOCATIONS, if your location has the highest cumulative score of League Points, you'll win the New York Venue Cup!
