How to Win Your Next Trivia Night, Lincoln, Nebraska

If you love to learn and spend time with friends, there’s nothing more fulfilling than going to a bar on trivia night. But if you have a hard time getting answers right, it’s easy to feel defeated in such a public setting. Luckily, there are some tricks to enhance your skills. Use the following pointers to get better at answering questions that span a wide range of topics.

How to Improve Your Chances at Trivia Night

1. Read More

According to “Jeopardy!” champion Tony Hightower, the people who are best at winning trivia games are “voracious readers.” Take a tip from this trivia veteran and head to the library or local bookstore. Find topics that interest you and dive into reference books about the subjects. Chances are, you’ll be better at absorbing material you’re excited about.

2. Be Naturally Curious

triviaTrivia is about being able to answer questions quickly in a high-stakes atmosphere. Take that willingness to absorb knowledge from books and use it to be naturally curious in the outside world. Walk into a store you’ve never seen before, ask an expert to explain their craft, or take a lesson in a new hobby to learn hands-on. Even if you never encounter a question on the topic, you’ll add to your personality, character, and memories by exploring the world.

3. Make It a Hobby

When lounging in front of the TV at home, turn on popular shows like “Jeopardy!” and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?”. Challenge yourself to answer questions alongside the participants. If you don’t know something, pause the show to look it up. Research trivia nights at local bars and restaurants, and ask your friends to come along with you. Making trivia a part of your life will help you feel more comfortable in public, high-pressure situations.
