Sunset Trivia features a unique combination of topics encompassing music, television, sports, movies, pop culture, geography, literature, science, and much more. You might find yourself having to answer a question about how the contents of a Manhattan and Margaret Thatcher in the same round! Each round is progressively harder than the last as the difficulty slowly increases over the course of the whole game. In each round, teams have the option to wager different point amounts and must make the decision when to wager high or low factoring in both the difficulty of the question and the upcoming topics. For example, if your team is full of movie experts, saving a larger wager for an upcoming movie question might be the right move! And, just to mix things up, we sometimes ask “toss-up” questions to give away shots, beer flights, t-shirts and more!
