In 1979, a new game was created by Canadian’s Chris Haney and Scott Abbott when they discovered pieces of their Scrabble game were missing. They released their new game to the public in 1981, licensed it in 1982 to Selchow and Righter, and then in 1988 to Parker Brothers. In 1993, it was named to the Games Hall of Fame by Games magazine. In 2008, Hasbro bought full rights for $80 million US dollars. As of 2014, more than 100 million copies had been sold in 26 countries and 17 languages.
If you know that this popular game is Trivial Pursuit, then you have what it takes to compete in Trivia Night, on Wednesday, September 23. Join a themed Zoom room and compete in 6 rounds of trivia questions, while enjoying your own libations at home. Answer questions via the Kahoot application on your cell phone, chat with (or intimidate) your competitors on the event’s Slack channel, and potentially win one of several great prizes in the process.
It’s not too late to start studying. Who will be the Champions of ConVEx trivia? Maybe the person who knows who has won a record number of 71 medals in major international competitions (including the Olympics, Pan Pacific, and World championships), with 57 of those medals having an atomic number of 79. Or the person who can name the only baseball player in history who could wear a World Series Championship ring on each finger and thumb, of each hand.
