Starting the week of Sunday, April 23, 2017, Trivia NYC, in alliance with a wide array of sponsors, is proud to present the fourth season of The Quiz Cup of New York, a citywide competition to crown the best trivia team in New York City.

The eight-week season will culminate in a one-day live championship over the weekend of June 24, 2017*, with prizes including (at least) $1000 in cash, free passes to the seventh annual Trivia Championships of North America in Las Vegas from August 4-6, 2017, tickets to concerts & shows, gift certificates, and more.

It’s easy (and cheap!) to play. If your team plays at Trivia NYC events already, then you just keep doing what you’re doing. Register your team here for just $50 per team FREE (up to 6 players per team), and play your regular nights as you normally do. Your scores will count on the night as usual, but they’ll also count toward QCNY.

Scoring will be as follows:

  • All teams will get QCNY points equal to the percentage of a perfect score on the night, up to a maximum of 100 points. Above that, the winning team on any given trivia night will get TEN (10) BONUS POINTS, making a perfect weekly score 110 points. Second place will get nine (9) bonus points on top of their percentage score, third place gets eight (8) bonus points, and so on down to 10th place getting one (1) bonus point. Any teams below 10th place get only their percentage points on the night, plus the satisfaction of a great night out playing trivia.
  • Your team can play more than once per week; only your best score for the week will count toward your Quiz Cup score. If you manage to play twice in one night, only the earlier score will count toward your QCNY tally.
  • At the end of the 8-week season, the top fifteen teams will be invited to the QCNY Championship, on Friday, June 23*. The winner of that event will win The Quiz Cup of New York, and hold the title of Best Trivia Team in New York City. This title comes with an array of prizes, including $1,000 cash and free all-access entry to the Seventh Annual Trivia Championships of North America in Las Vegas, August 4-6, 2017.
  • QCNY teams will be allowed one (1) substitution on regular game weeks. At the Grand Finals in June, however, there will be no substitutions allowed.
  • Results updated every day (give or take) at
