Teams and Registration FAQ

How many people can I have on a team?
Teams this year are limited to 3-5 members so that we can ensure equitalbe distribution of prizes to our winners. 

I don't have a team but I still want to play! 
Don't worry! You can register as an individual and either choose to participate solo OR we can group you with 2 to 4 other trivia enthusiasts! We recommend the latter as team participation gives you the opportunity to collaborate with your fellows and hopefully make some new friends! It also provides you the greatest advantage with the trivia scoring system. For more information on scoring, see below!

How does scoring work?
Teams' scores will be automatically calculated based off of an average of the scores from your top three players. This means that, if you are on a team of four or five, if at least three of your players get the answer right, your team's answer will still be marked as correct! For teams of three, the score will be an average of all three players' answers. If you choose to play as an individual without joining a team, your answer will not be averaged with anyone else's and you will lose the scoring cushion provided by having a team. Lastly, there are also speed bonuses for answering the question as quickly as you can, so no time to pull up Google!

I am working on pulling together my team, but I don't have everyone confirmed yet. 
It is easiest to register once you have your full team confirmed, however if you want to add on additional team members (up to the max limit of 5), you can email Talia Reynolds, our Membership and Events Coordinator, at and she will be happy to help you get your team squared away. 

What if I have more than 5 people on my team?
We recommend splitting into two teams (e.g. a group of 6 can become two teams of 3) so that any prize packages won can be distributed equitably. Our prize packages are designed for teams of 3-5, so any additional people on the team will stretch the distribution of the prizes more than is enjoyable for all team members.

What happens if my team wins a prize?
One of our WorldDenver staff members will reach out to the team's primary contact to coordinate prize pickup or delivery. We are committed to ensuring the comfort and safety of our community, and will be happy to work with you to set up curbside and/or contactless pickup at our office location or dropoff at a convenient location.
