"Mike recently hosted a trivia night for my wife’s birthday with ~15 of our friends. Mike did a great job and everyone had a lot of fun! I highly recommend it as a fun event with friends in remote places. Definitely worth it!" - Nick Joseph, Citi
About (from the owner)
Welcome to Trivia Throwdown Online LLC (TTO)! I'm Michael Wade, Owner/Operator/Trivia Expert and this is my start-up. I am the master of ceremonies for the game and will lead you and your group through the entire experience. Here's the idea: emulate the feel of classic bar trivia for you and your friends, family and colleagues alike from the comfort of your own home. Cozy huh?
The game, played via Zoom, includes five rounds with a final showdown (20 total questions) and takes roughly 75 minutes. Each round is a different question type designed to challenge you and your teams in new and interesting ways. The content covers all things movies, music, history, science, sports, pop culture, and everything in between. You'll play on a team, I ask the question and then send everyone into their breakout rooms to decide answers. One team member from each team will act as the "caller", the person who submits the answers. I'll keep track of scoring and will screen share the scoreboard from time to time.
All you have to do is sit back on your couch and play along, so why not?? For more information or to set up an event please send TTO an email at, TriviaThrowdownOnline@gmail.com. I look forward to working with you and your group!

How is this different from typical bar trivia?
The biggest difference is, of course, the fact that it’s online, and from the comfort of your own home. But going beyond that, the biggest difference is the emphasis on group interaction and engagement. We curate our questions with the goal in mind to encourage as much collaboration (within your group) as possible to highlight the strength of the group, not the individual.
How many players can play at a time?
TTO can easily accommodate groups up to 50. Ideally, for the best experience for you and your group we recommend around 30 players/screens. Singles count as 1, couples count as 2, families (3 or more) count as 2.
Why not larger groups?
The value of this experience is the ability to interact and engage with the people you’re playing with. If you’ve ever been on a video or phone conference call with large numbers everyone ultimately has to be muted and the interaction within the group is minimal. The real value of TTO is the ability to engage, have fun, and be active participants in the entire experience, start to finish.
How long does the game last?
The experience is scheduled to last roughly 75 minutes but might run slightly longer depending on the timeliness of responses and ongoing conversations. The game can be shortened upon request.
My group had a great time, can we play again?
We have curated dozens of completely unique versions of trivia and are actively writing new questions/content all the time. We love repeat business and would love to have you and your group back as often as you like!
What do I (and my group members) need to play?
The game is played via Zoom, so all you need is a basic Zoom account (which is free). If you’re in the same room with someone you’re playing with (like a spouse or roommate) you can play on the same account/screen.
How do questions get asked & answered?
We read the question aloud to everyone in the main room twice. We will then open the breakout rooms (you’ll see a prompt and select “join breakout room ___”), you and your team will go discuss your answer(s). Wait until you get to your rooms to discuss answers, you don’t want to help the other teams! You’ll have roughly 90 seconds for each question, with additional time for the multi part questions.
We’ll close the rooms and you can either return to the main room manually or wait until the timer expires and you’ll be sent back to the main room automatically. At that point, your teams “caller” will submit their answers directly to me via the built in chat function, which is very simple. We’ll record everyone’s responses, read the answer allowed, and offer up any additional information needed (ex. who got it right, partial credit, etc.)
How do we keep score?
We track all the scoring and will share the scoreboard periodically throughout the game. You don’t have to do anything except sit back and enjoy!
