FAQs About the Autumn Invitational

autumninviteI’ve been sort of scattershot in presenting the info about the Autumn Invitational. Here is everything you need to know, and the answers to a few questions I have been getting so far.

WHAT IS IT? The Autumn Invitational is part quizzo, part scavenger hunt, part Let’s Make a Deal. Teams earn points for finishing in the top 3 in my weekly quizzos, for completing physical challenges posted on facebook, and for answering bonus trivia questions or having items on their persons at quizzo. After 8 weeks, the 25 teams that have scored the most points earn an invite to the Main Event. As of right now, the Main Event will be taking place on November 14th. (Though it could potentially be moved to the 21st) The location is currently a secret, but will be revealed in the next week.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE? Anyone is eligible to play. You and your team of up to 8 people can play any one of my quizzes during the week (schedule below), or one of Mike Minions two quizzes, to earn points. We have just started week 1, so you haven’t missed anything.

WHAT KIND OF PRIZES WE TALKING HERE? Ok, winning team of the Main Event gets $300 in prizes. 2nd Place gets $150 in prizes. The Top 10 teams after 8 weeks will be entered into a drawing for another $100 in prizes, and the team that scores the most points via physical challenges scores $100 in prizes. $650 worth of total prizes. Not too shabby.

HOW CAN MY TEAM SCORE POINTS? First place team at quizzo gets 5 points, 2nd place gets 3, and 3rd Place gets 1. In addition, there will be 4 numbers questions during each quiz, and whatever team comes closest gets a bonus point. You can earn up to 10 points a week via physical challenges. (This week, the points come easy in the physical challenges. They won’t be this easy in coming weeks, so take advantage!) There will also be “Name That Tune” opportunities to score points and Let’s Make a Deal opportunities at the quizzes (i.e. “Whoever can show me a wheat penny/pack of Chiclets/Estee lauder product”, etc. earns a point). There will also be a few special quizzes in which you can score DOUBLE POINTS. The first one of these will be on Monday at the Cheating for Charity Quiz.

HAS THERE EVER BEEN AN EVENT LIKE THIS ANYWHERE, ANYTIME BEFORE? No. Well except for the Summer Invitational that we did a few months ago. This is an event that is uniquely Philadelphian, and unlike anything else I have ever heard of.

BUT YOUR TOP TEAMS NEVER LOSE, JGT. Not true. Last week, the top 4 regular teams in my quiz all lost, and two didn’t even finish in the Top 3.

  1. Hey Michelle, it’s already started, but there is still plenty of time to get involved. we’re only two weeks in, and a 2nd place finish and a physical challenge will put you right in the mix.
