The unofficial theme song of the Great Midwest Trivia Contest is “Africa” by Toto.
As of the 50th contest, Red Dog is the official beer of trivia. (Thanks, JB!)
Skull Squadron and Trivia Pirates are the only teams consistently receiving an unofficial add-on to their name.
President Burstein once said “666 Hail Satan” while reading teams (and jam teams) answering correctly.
Traditionally, the last action question of every contest involves making that year’s Grand Master happy. As an example, Grand Master Weronika Gajowniczek was appeased through petting Siamese cats.
Kurt Russell hour is most likely the least popular theme hour, followed closely by Polish Hour and Viola Hour. Death and Destruction Hour is an annual crowd-pleaser.
