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 tough questions. We wanted it to be challenging, but fun and entertaining as well. We’ve come up with over a dozen categories and created fun names for them, created rounds such as Brain Freeze Challenges, and also created the league format.

In the past, teams competed at World Tavern Trivia bars to earn their way to the Trivia National Championships, an event held once a year where over $10,000 in cash and prizes was awarded.

Starting in August 2018, we re-designed our league to emphasize games at the bar level. We re-purposed the $10,000 in cash given out once per year, turning it into four online events where teams compete for $2,500 each quarter. This means Bar Brains are more committed to events at our venues, and more teams can enjoy opportunities to win.

Similar to our poker promotion, World Tavern Trivia has always focused 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!
