The Chidren's Center's Team Trivia Tournament begins Wednesday, January 9, and continues each Wednesday through February 13, 2018, at the Barn at the Inn on Main. Tickets are $16 per person each night, and cover the cost of a hearty soup, breads, and salad bar from the Inn on Main, as well as the trivia game presented by Children’s Center. Doors will open at 5 p.m. for dinner. The trivia game begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 8 p.m. A cash bar is available. To register your team, please call the Children’s Center at 603-569-1027. When you register, please provide a team name and the names of team members.

Teams of up to 10 people each will vie for trivia superiority each week, with a weekly grand prize valued of at least $100 to the team with the most points at the end of the night. The evenings will feature four rounds of trivia questions that vary in point value; an extra credit game; excellent food and great service from O Bistro; and lots of fun, excitement, and suspense. The games are run live by Master of Ceremony, Bill Huffman, who asks the questions, keeps things lively, and interacts with the players—nothing computerized or automated here.

Advanced registration is strongly recommended to guarantee availability; seating is limited and tends to fill quickly. A portion of the ticket price goes directly to support the Children’s Center.

The answers to the earlier questions: Komodo dragon, E. Annie Proulx, and 24.
