The Great Bar Trivia Experience with OC Trivia

Posted on February 9, 2014

Author: Jayden Hall

Live Pub Trivia, Bar trivia, play triviaI recently played some bar trivia at my local bar – a great experience if you ask me, particularly because I am a huge fan of trivia in general. OC Trivia was the company that offered me this opportunity, and I played a few times over the past month and my team won almost every time!

I should talk about finding the right Orange County trivia company to consider driving to. Well, it took me about three months to find a night that wasn't the same boring trivia agenda.  After experiencing total disappointment at other bars with boring hosts who obviously don't care, located in my area. OC Trivia was an excellent company that offered everything I could possibly wish for – good logical questions and an entertaining experience. Pub trivia might seem overwhelming to some degree since there are many other people playing and the competition is heavy, but I think I did pretty well even though my teamates and I were not that experienced.

The best part was when I answered that there are only three heroes in Alexandre Dumas’ “The Three Musketeers”, totally forgetting about d’Artagnan. That was funny and very tricky if you ask me. However, I had a lot of fun, and I will definitely never forget the moment in which I said that Confucius was Latin, even though he was actually Chinese. Both questions seemed obvious – there are three musketeers, so there are three heroes; most philosophers were either Latin or Greek, so Confucius was like them.

The other questions seemed fairly easy – I mean, who does not know that Nikola Tesla was the one who has actually created the bulb? Most would answer “Thomas Edison”, but that is not true at all – at least, not if you are a little familiarized with them.

Anyway, OC Trivia had the best questions ever, they were engaging and very fascinating at the same time. It is great to learn new things just by playing bar trivia, and everyone seemed to be very engaged in this activity. They all seemed to love the intermission activities, where one team had to bring up an object or the quick quizzes done live on the microphone. I got up once and--gulp--I was nervous!  A great experience indeed, OC trivia covered all topics perfectly, with questions of different difficulty, so that well-educated persons wouldn't steal the game and those who wre more familiar with pop culture could stand out among others.

But on top of it all, OC Trivia (www.octrivia.com) was fun and entertaining for anyone of any level of knowledge – like those trivia shows we see on TV, only bigger, live and even better than I could actually imagine.
