The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2018-03-19T01:57:35Z The Ultimate Team Trivia Challenge 2018-03-19T01:57:35Z the-ultimate-team-trivia-challenge-1 TriviaWorks and Quizzing Australia are proud to present the Australasian Pub Quiz Championships – a new annual contest bringing together recreational and competitive quizzers from across Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific to find the smartest pub quiz teams in the region. It’s the ULTIMATE team trivia event – two countries, three cities, over a thousand players – and one champion! We’re testing knowledge on everything from Aardvarks to Zyzzyvas (a genus of tropical weasels native to South America), and everything in between. As part of teams of six, competitors will use logic and luck to work their way through our intellectual gauntlet. The APQC will take place with three simultaneous events from 2pm on the 28th of April, 2018, at the Roundhouse at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, the Bourbon Street Kitchen in Canberra, and from 4pm at the Hunter Lounge at the Victoria University of Wellington. It is the latest, and largest, addition to the Quizzing Australia competitive quizzing calendar, alongside the World Quizzing Championships and the annual State Championships. Registrations are now open, and tickets are available at pubquizchampionships.com.au and pubquizchampionships.co.nz. SAMPLE QUESTIONS: 1. The film “Notting Hill” is set in what city? 2.
