How To Play

CNP Trivia is split into four rounds of play.


Each of the four rounds consists of ten questions (worth 1 or 2 points),

and one bonus question (worth 5 points).


Three questions in each round will be multiple choice.

- Round 1: Questions are worth one point each. 15 points maximum.
- Round 2: Questions are worth two points each. 25 points maximum.
- Round 3: Puzzle Round - 15 points maximum.
- Round 4: Questions are worth one point each (with an added bonus)
(Bonus) After answering questions 1-10, guess how many your team

             answered correctly. If you are correct, receive double your

             points for the round. - 25 points maximum for Round 4.


Maximum Possible Score after all four rounds of play = 80 points

The Basics
Tie Breakers

In the event of a tie, whichever team has answered the most bonus questions correctly, will be declared winner.
If a second tie breaker is needed, the team who has correctly answered the most question #1's, will be declared winner.
If needed, we will proceed through the questions in numerical order, until a winner is determined.
OR one hand of a selected card game, between a member or each of the tied teams (winner takes all).
OR Best of Three in Rock, Paper, Scissors.
