RRFF

Every 8 weeks is another chance to earn your trivia team cash rewards! Whether you are a hardcore player or brand new to Sporcle Live, there is a prize pool for you.

There are 3 different ways to win cash and over 50 teams will take home money every 8 weeks. Sporcle will award tens of thousands in cash prizes through our Cash Rewards program in 2014!

How To Sign Up:

  • Every team needs to register with a Trivia MC or fill out the form to the right. After you register once, you never have to register again in future seasons.
  • After registration with a valid email and default team name, you will be assigned a cash rewards team number that you need to use each time you sign your team up to play at a show. As long as you provide your team number, you can change your team name from night-to-night.
  • Cash rewards team numbers are essential due to the number of teams that use the same team names across the cities that host Sporcle Live. Scoring via team numbers will ensure accurate and fair results. The team numbers are for cash rewards scoring purposes only. At your shows, you will still be called by your team name.
  • When you sign up to play any night of Sporcle Live, simply use your team name and then your cash rewards team number in parenthesis. For example – Team Name: More Beer Less Pants (#00001). On future game sheets, we will have an assigned spot for cash rewards team numbers.

How Does It Work?

The “I Don’t Get Out Much” Prize Pool – $2,000
(Teams who play at only one venue per week will love this)

  • The 20 teams who have the highest cumulative score after 8 weeks at one single venue will share this cash prize pool.
  • The prize pool is split based on what percentage of points your team scored vs. total points earned by the top 20 teams. For example, if the top 20 teams earned a total of 20,000 points and your team scored 1,500 of those points, you’d earn 7.5% of the pool (1,500/20,000 is 7.5%). So, in this example, your team would earn 7.5% of the $2,000 prize pool, which is $150.00.
  • Teams can only qualify in this pool one time per season – 20 different teams will qualify to share the prize pool. In the event a team plays at multiple venues and appears in the top 20 of this list more than once, only their highest score will be counted. In that event, team number 21 would be added to the pool mix.

The “I Just Can’t Get Enough Sporcle Live” Prize Pool- $2,000
(Teams who play at multiple venues per week will love this)

  • The 20 teams who have the highest combined score after 8 weeks at any combination of venues will share this prize pool.
  • Up to 4 scores per week will be counted per team in this pool. Should a team play more than 4 times in a single week (thank you for doing so), only your first 4 scores that week will count. This puts all cities on a level playing field.
  • The prize pool is split based on what percentage of points your team scored vs. total points earned by the top 20 teams. For example, if the top 20 teams earned a total of 60,000 points and your team scored 6,000 of those points, you’d earn 10% of the pool. So, in this example, your team would earn 10% of the $2,000 prize pool, which is $200.00.

The “What is This Live Trivia Thing All About” Prize Pool – $1,000
(If you don’t know what Sporcle Live is, you’re probably new here – this one’s for you)

  • The top 10 teams who earn the most points after 8 weeks at one single venue will share this prize pool, with the below restrictions.
  • The only venues eligible for this are venues that have not previously completed a full 8-week cycle in a previous cash rewards season. Here’s a list of all approved venues
  • To be eligible, your team can not have won money in any of the two previous cash rewards seasons. Note – during the first two seasons of 2014, teams who earned money at the July 2013 or November 2013 tournaments are ineligible for this pool.
  • This prize pool is split based on what percentage of points your team scored vs. total points earned by the top 10 teams. For example, if the top 10 teams earned a total of 10,000 points and your team scored 1,000 of those points, you’d earn 10% of the pool. So, in this example, your team would earn 10% of the $1,000 prize pool, which is $100.00.

Tournaments

  • Two tournaments per year will be held in each major city we host Sporcle Live (as long as 10 or more weekly shows are taking place in that major city per week).
  • Tournaments are open to the general public, however, if a registered team played at least 10 times or more in the 6 months leading up to the tournament, they will have an advanced registration period before the general public can register.
  • Tournaments will hold a $25 entry fee per team of five, however, 100% of the entry fees will be paid back as cash prizes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I win money in more than one of the pools?
A: You bet! If you are a new team, you could potentially win money in all three pools. If you are an existing team, you could potentially win money in the first two pools, thus increasing your take home.

Q: Are there tournaments involved with winning the money in the prize pools?
A: No. All prize payouts are guaranteed cash with no tournaments, that are based on weekly play. However, we will still hold two cash tournaments per year that are open to the general public

Q: If I’m an existing team, can’t I just change my name to compete for the new venue pot?
A: You could, but you’d be a big jerk for doing so. Don’t mess with karma. When it’s time to write the checks in this pool, if your name or address previously had a check written out to it in either of the previous 2 seasons, your win in this new venue pool will be voided and we’ll award the next team on the list.

Q: In the single venue pool, if I am in the top 20 say three times, do I get three prize amounts?
A: No. You can only qualify in the top 20 once. You can only appear on each pool list one time per 8-week cycle

Q: What happens if my venue cancels for one night during the season?
A: Use your bar hopper pass. You can use this once per season. This allows your team to play at any other location within two weeks of the cancellation to replace a score at your regular venue. Special considerations may be made for venues that cancel more than once during a season. To use your bar hopper pass send a request to scores@sporcle.com with where you played your replacement show at.

Q: What happens if my venue cancels permanently during the season?
A: You must contact us to let us know where you’ll finish the season instead. We will transfer the points you earned to that point at the cancelled venue to your new preferred venue.

Q: What points during a night count towards the cash rewards score?
A: All regular round, mystery round, newsletter bonus and Quickfire question points. Points that are NOT included are final questions and host awarded bonus points.

Q: What happens if my venue only does one game during a scheduled night?
A: We will double your score from Game 1 to give you a complete and competitive score. Note, this is only if a venue cancels game 2. You can’t just leave after game 1 and have us double your score if the venue hosts the second game.

Q: What are the most points I can earn in a night?
A: You can only earn points at one venue per night. Only points from regular questions, newsletter questions and mystery rounds count towards the totals. Final questions and random host-awarded bonus points do not count for Cash Rewards. In the event a team plays at more than one venue in a night, their lowest score will counted in the standings.

Q: If I win money, how and when will I receive it?
A: Checks will be mailed to the winning team’s captain within 3 weeks of the season’s end date. Winning teams have 30 days to provide Sporcle Live with contact info to receive their payout. If we do not receive contact information within 30 days, the prize will be forfeited.
