If you play Team Trivia fairly regularly, perhaps more than once a week, you might notice that sometimes a particular subject turns up in questions all week long. There's NO GUARANTEE your show will have a question about the subject, but it's a distinct possibility. [p.s.: if you don't see a particular week listed, that means there's no specific "hint" for that week.]
And of course, for one free answer each night, click on "Tonight's Answer" on our home page. It'll be a "gimme" for you, while everyone else has to wrack their brains.
general tips for you -- The more well-rounded your team is, the better chance you have of winning. If you don't really know sports or music or world geography or movies, perhaps you could invite one of your friends who IS knowledgeable in those areas to play with you. Our questions span all age ranges and all sorts of categories. Put together a strong "team" and your chances are pretty good.
There's only so many questions we can ask in each game. The more you play, the more variety you'll hear, and the more you're apt to know an answer no one else does!
Wait until your team has turned in an answer before you look at that incoming text or Tweet on your phone! When you're using your phone at your table, even if it's just to look up a phone number or a funny video - especially before you've turned an answer in - it looks like you're cheating to everyone else. We try to make it as fun as possible, but there are rules.
If you and your teammates can't come to a consensus on an answer, many times you're initial guess is the correct one. Not every time, of course, but often.
If you're a league team, don't forget to give the host your league number. Without it, the host may not realize you're a league team and your score may not get posted on our TeamTrivia.com scoreboard.
