Annual Events

April 02, 2012

Every night at Trivia Club is a special event, with the winners taking home the Golden VHS to put on their mantle place. If you've been to Trivia Club, you know it. Our love for awarding Championship Gold does not stop there however, as annually we also celebrate our anniversary at our locations, with the longest running of those annual championships also doubling as a celebration of Trivia Club as a whole! In this section, we gladly celebrate our Annual Events!

The Golden VCR is awarded every April to celebrate Trivia Club's anniversary April 13th, 2012, our first night at our Original Home of Cardinal Rule! As well as being the longest running Annual Event of Trivia Club it is also our largest event! The inaugural year began the tradition of a two night aggregate score deciding the winner, and each year since has made sure to include the entirety of the Trivia Club experience in one way or another with the Grand Championship Grand Prix beginning in 2013/2014! The largest Grand Prix included 11 possible nights of competition in 2014/2015. The most events used towards the final score was five, all the Cardinal Rule events and one of the two Hitch events in 2016/2017 for our Fifth Anniversary. In 2017/2018, Grand Prix Points came into play, rewarding placement over points on the night, while still using points on the night as a tie-breaker. And yes, the VCR can play your Golden VHS tapes.

The Christopher Hitchens Cup, in honor of Hitch's namesake, is an Annual Event that takes place each September at Trivia Club's east-end Toronto location, making it Trivia Club's Fall Classic! The Hitchens Cup is notable for being the only drinkable Annual Championship, and is a Golden bottle of Christopher Hitchens' drink of choice, Johnny Walker Black. The Hitchens Cup winner for the first three years was the team with the highest aggregate score in the month of September, celebrating our first night at Hitch, on September 9th, 2013! In 2016/2017 it became a best two-outta-three scores aggregate, before returning in 2017/2018 to the aggregate score over the two events in September!

The Rec Room Royale is an Annual Event that takes place each September on Trivia Club's biggest stage to determine who is The Rec Room Trivia Royalty! The Rec Room Royale is notable for being the only playable Annual Championship, with an arcade Pac-Man adorning the 2017/2018 edition of the Championship. The Rec Room Royale winner is the team with the highest aggregate score over two specific events in the month of September, chosen to celebrate our anniversary at The Rec Room in Toronto, whose first event was on September 5th, 2017!

Former Annual Events include:
The Top Dawg Tournament took place every March, in honor of our initial night of March 11th, 2014 at Lou Dawg's, making it Trivia Club's March Madness! To the winner of the Tournament went the Top Dawg Trophy, which was a different trophy each year that is lovingly crafted to honour the Top Dawg at Lou Dawg's! The first year saw the team with the highest aggregate score win the Top Dawg Trophy, but in 2015/2016 was a new format that saw the best two-outta-three scores in March take home the Top Dawg Trophy. We no longer run regular live events at Lou Dawgs.
