***NO VIRTUAL TRIVIA THIS WEEK***
HOW LONG DOES EACH LEAGUE SEASON LAST?

NOTE: A team could lead the game for Rounds 1-3, not win the game at the end of the night, but still earn the most league points that night.
There are TWO (2) ways for a team to qualify for the championship at the end of 12 weeks:
1. Have a Top 3 PPG for their home bar (min. 10 games played)
2. Accumulate a minimum of 700 league points
NOTE: If a qualifying championship team has a member(s) that played at least 50% of a team's games as a member of another qualifying team, only ONE (1) of those qualifying teams is allowed entry into the Championship. No exceptions.
The date and location of the 1st Championship is TBD and will be announced closer to the end of the 1st League Season. Prizes will be awarded to the Top 3 finishing teams at the Championship game in the amounts of $150/$100/$50 in cash!
Q: How do I keep my account active?
A: Team accounts only remain active for 30 DAYS if there is no activity. That means in order to keep your account active, a team must do one of two things:
1. Participate in and complete at least one (1) weeknight game within thirty (30) days of the team's last game
2. Answer the Bonus Question on Facebook or Instagram within thirty (30) days of the team's last answered
If a team does not do one of the two things above at least once every 30 days, that team account will close and all points and multipliers associated with it are deleted.
Q: How do we earn bonus points?
A: There are many ways for teams to earn bonus points for their team accounts. Here are the different ways as well as their values:
1. Order food/drink from the location = 1pt per token
2. Answer the Bonus Question on Facebook or Instagram daily = 5pts per day
3. Tell the host the answer to the ads bonus question at the game = 5pts per game
4. Tell the host the answer to the SMS bonus = 5pts per game
5. Bring a canned food item = 5pts per item
6. Purchasing additional Music Bingo cards = 10pts per card
6. Playing Rounds 1-4 of the game = 10% of your final score (rounded up to nearest pt)
6. Win Single-Line Bingo during Music Bingo Round = 100pts
7. Win Double-Line Bingo during Music Bingo Round = 300pts
8. Win Cover-All Bingo during Music Bingo Round = 500pts
NOTE: For every 10 games you play in a trivia year, your bonus point multiplier increases by 1x (max 6x). This now includes all of the above bonuses.
Q: How can we use bonus points to better our score?
A: The bonus point period occurs during the break between Rounds 3 and 4. During this period, teams will be allowed to use their bonus points to maintain their position on the leaderboard heading into Round 4.
Starting at the top, the team in 1st place will be asked if they would like to use their bonus points to maintain their lead over the field of teams below them, which will be in the amount of how many points they lead the team at the bottom by (i.e. 1st-place score = 400 and Last-place score = 100, which would equal 300 bonus to maintain their 1st place position).
If they have enough points to fulfill the requirement, and opt to keep their lead and use their points, we move to the 2nd place team and repeat the previous steps. This continues until a team elects not to use their points, or does not have enough bonus points to fulfill the requirement, at which point all teams below that team can use their bonus points to tie them.
NOTE: The "Last-place" team must not have joined after the first question of the game, and must have answered questions or been actively connected to the game for no less than 80% of every round.
Q: How are we assigned a Home Bar?
A: After a team has played in 10 games over the 12-week period, they become eligible to participate in the Championship game if they're also (1) a Top 3 team at their Home Bar and/or (2) have earned 700 or more league points.
Once a team has reached their 10-game eligibility, a Home Bar is determined based on how many games, or how frequently a team has participated at each location. A team that has played a majority of, or at least 50% of their first 10 games at a location, will be considered a representative of that location.
