Trivia Throwdown – are you game?

Posted on October 19, 2015

BirdmanTest your skills, win prizes, all for a good cause.  And, more importantly, dethrone the reigning AMIA Trivia Champs!


Do you know which George Washington’s salary as president was? Or Donald Duck’s middle name is? If not, you’ll want to find a fellow colleague that does as you begin to form your team for AMIA’s  Annual Trivia Throwdown at this year’s conference in Portland.

Didn’t play last year? Shame on you! Here’s a little on how it goes …

Since the game is open to all categories (yes, all categories), you’ll want to choose your team carefully and pick the political aficionado, the comic book collector, the sports know-it-all, and the 70’s pop culture nerd. Awards will be given in the following categories: Winning Team, Best Team Name, Best Team Cheer and Best Team Spirit. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your team name or with your team’s cheer (pom-poms and dance moves are permitted).

Teams will consist of 5-8 people, no more, no less. The games will commence Wednesday, November 18th at 8:00 in the evening; teams must be sitting at their table, ready to battle at 8:00pm. Use of cell phones, cell phones, tablets or help from the audience is not only not permitted, but you’ll be mocked publicly and mercilessly the rest of the conference if you’re caught.

Don’t want to form up your own team? We’ll have teams that come together just for the night (we like to call it Survivor Trivia), so sign up as an individual or in twos or threes. If you’re new to AMIA, it’s a great way to meet your colleagues, and if you’re an AMIA conference veteran just looking to share your celebrated wisdom, here’s your chance. This is a GREAT conference mentor/first time attendee event! In fact, last year’s champs were a match made that night …


All the funds from Trivia Night will go to support AMIA ‘s Community Fund, providing travel grants to the annual conference.

It’s fun and there’s
a Monkey Trophy.
