Anyone dig trivia?

Well, I am your typical home body ever since I had my daughter.

I'd like to get out once in a while. I am very interested in these local spots that have trivia night. Would any one here be interested in starting a 'team' with me? I don't even know which nights these places do this kind of stuff. So hopefully, someone who has done this kind of thing before can help me out!

Let's drink some beers and play some trivia, guys.

NTN Buzztime
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
NTN Buzztime, Inc.

Type Public (AMEX: NTN)
Industry Interactive entertainment
Founded 1983[1]
Headquarters Carlsbad, California
Key people Michael Bush, President and CEO[1]
Employees 136[1]
Website Buzztime: Interact - www.buzztime.com
NTN Buzztime (AMEX: NTN) is a company which produces interactive entertainment across many different platforms. Its most well-known product, simply called Buzztime, and formerly known as the NTN Network, since 1985, broadcasts trivia and other games via broadband over a national network to over 3,800 bars and restaurants in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean. Operations in the U.K. were discontinued Q3 2008.[2] Typically, independently-owned bars and restaurants offer Buzztime. However, it is also offered by major chains such as Buffalo Wild Wings and Damon's Grill, and is being implemented at some T.G.I. Friday's and Applebee's. Buzztime offers several different kinds of trivia games based on a variety of subjects, including pop culture, entertainment, world history, geography, sports and music, as well as general trivia games with questions in many categories.
NTN Buzztime, Inc. is based in Carlsbad, California. The company was founded as Alroy Industries[3] and formerly went by the name NTN Communications, Inc. from 1985 to 2005.

Buzztime players use "Playmakers" to answer the questions that are displayed on the television screens. Questions are answered by pressing numbered buttons that correspond to multiple-choice answers. The region on the right side of the "Playmaker" is known as the "Playzone" and it features a numbered keypad. However, many players also effectively utilize the row of numbers at the top of the "Playmaker" to respond to questions.
After each game, the top 20 individual winners as well as the top 20 establishments on the entire network (based on an average of the five highest scores at that establishment?top six for Showdown) are broadcast in a "Network Rankings" summary for each game. Many teams gather together in their respective establishments to partake in the battle of wits.
Many frequent Buzztime players are enrolled in the "Players Plus" program. Players earn Players Plus points by participating in a game, and can earn additional points by beating a target score that is given before the start of each game. In the past, Buzztime trivia offerings were available over online services such as the now-defunct ImagiNation Network. Now, Buzztime trivia can be found on other platforms, such as an electronic home-system version and a mobile phone version.
In 2004, the company launched the Blast channel that is available to establishments that upgrade to the ITV2 system. (New Buzztime installations use the 2 channel ITV2 system.) This "Channel B" features the games Blackjack, Cutthroat (a form of billiards), Texas hold 'em poker, Shark Attack (similar to hangman) and Crazy Golf, a miniature golf-type game. It also can be used to broadcast some of the QB1 games, allowing the first channel to broadcast the trivia games.
In January 2006, the company renamed the NTN Network "Buzztime." Furthermore, the "Blast" brandname was discontinued. It also launched an expanded players' website, which features more-detailed player statistics and a phpBB-based forum. In 2009 a third "Channel C" all sports trivia channel was added to the system, but only 2 of the 3 channels (Trivia, Games or Sports) can be used simultaneously at a location. The Forum was discontinued in January, 2010 and replaced with a Blog.

I just knew where to look Brit. I played NTN Trivia for 5 years in PA. It was better before they dumbed it down to increase use but it's probably still fun to play.
