What is WorldQuest?
WorldQuest is an exciting game of international trivia, played in teams of 2 or more, with three rounds of questions. Answers are submitted by teams, not individuals. It’s a great way to test your knowledge of international issues. Anyone can participate in WorldQuest. Teams can be formed by businesses, schools, clubs, or groups of friends. If you want to play but don’t have a team, we will find one for you.

How is WorldQuest played?
The game is played in four rounds of 15 questions. Your team has 30 seconds to answer each question. Answer sheets are submitted at the end of each round. The trophy goes to the team with the highest number of points at the end of four rounds. In the event of a tie, a sudden death question will be played.

What kind of questions will be asked?
The questions will be timely and relevant, covering topics such as international politics, current events, economics, geography, and culture. Questions will cover all parts of the globe, so teams with a geographic balance of expertise will have an advantage.

Anything else I should know?
Creativity will be rewarded! Come up with a funny team name and/or come in costume with your teammates! Medals will be awarded to the Best Dressed Team and Best Team Name
