A quick list of trivia nights in Singapore, including what to expect at the few that I’ve been to so far:
Turnstyles: Probably the best quiz night I’ve been to in Singapore. Interesting questions, a smart, witty quizmaster who knows what he’s doing, a thoroughly engaged crowd. All good fun.
Brewerkz: People, lots and lots of people. They don’t even seat you near the water; they just push you into a room and throw questions at you. And seriously… 16-member teams? A bit of a joke, that. That said, the questions aren’t half-bad.
Boomarang: Quite a few teams, but the woman hosting is terrible at it. The questions are naive, yes, but she looks embarrassed and unsure most of the time, and greatly relieved when it’s all over.
The Dog & Bone and The Pit (both fortnightly): To be confirmed
The Sportsman: Tiny little place, tiny little quiz — there’ll be a maximum of six teams there, if they’re lucky. But the teams are hugely friendly, the questions are occasionally very good, and there’s free chicken curry and rice until it runs out.
The Old Brown Shoe, Krish, Picotin (fortnightly) and Celina’s GastroBar (monthly): To be confirmed.
BQ Bar and Harry’s (both on Boat Quay): I’ve heard rumors, but I’ve little evidence.
