About Us

World Tavern Entertainment started with World Tavern Poker in 2004. We added World Tavern Trivia 4 years later in 2008. The concept of World Tavern Trivia was to create a trivia game for the rest of us...the regular Bar Brain.

We didn’t want to create the normal trivia game with difficult questions. We wanted it to be challenging, but fun and entertaining as well. We originally came up with 14 categories and created fun names for them, created 2 rounds called Brain Freeze Challenges and created the league format.

Teams can compete at any World Tavern Trivia bar and have the ability to earn their way to our quarterly Online Championship events where we give away $10,000 in CASH prizes every year.

Similar to our poker promotion, we knew we would need to focus on 2 critical success factors: Make It Affordable & Make It Easy for the bar owners.

Our Mission

Providing tavern owners the system & tools to create, manage and market successful Trivia Games resulting in both great excitement and great profits for their business.

If you are a Bar Owner looking to take your business to the next level or simply fill up the place on a slow night, then we encourage you to add World Tavern Trivia to your promotions calendar!
