Once the maximum number of teams sign up, only the teams that have registered will be permitted to play. Reservations can NOT be made by calling the restaurant.   Please review the following info for booking your trivia reservation. HOW RESERVATIONS WORK: Pick the specific location where you want to play. Reservations will automatically be canceled for teams that reserve spots at multiple locations on the same night.  Have one member of your team reserve ALL the tickets for the estimated number of team members who will participate.  Only reserve single tickets if you plan to play by yourself on a team of one. If you need to add or remove players before the trivia night, don’t worry. Once you sign up, you can have up to 8 players on your team at the event without making changes to your reservation.  Please only RSVP if you are certain your team will participate. If your team is unable to attend, please cancel your reservation via Eventbrite to make room for those who want to play.  Your free reservation guarantees your team a spot in the game, but trivia is still general seating.
