Start a Sporcle Meetup in your city!
There is nothing quite like meeting fellow Sporcle enthusiasts in person. That is why Sporcle is holding a local meetup in Seattle. It’s a great way to meet with other Sporcle fans and talk trivia offline.
If you’d like to jump in and get to know other Sporclers in your own city, you can organize a Sporcle Meetup. All it takes is a little planning.
Topics for a Sporcle meetup can range from general trivia, to tips and tricks on creating games, to discussing features you’d like to see on Sporcle. Really the idea is just to get together, perhaps play a game or two and spread the word about Sporcle.
If you are interested in putting together a Sporcle meetup, here are some handy tips:
Time and Place
The first thing to do is to set a date and time for your meetup, remember scheduling is a big determining factor for attendees. If somebody has already created a Sporcle Meetup in the same time range you’re considering, contact the organizer to see if you can collaborate. Next find a place to meet. Wi-Fi is nice, but not required depending on what you are planning to do. It might also be a good idea to give venue managers a heads up that you are meeting in case space gets tight.
Topics and Format
A Sporcle Meetup can take just about any shape. You could organize a Sporcle pub trivia night or just have an informal get-together with folks who love trivia.
Facebook and Twitter are great platforms for promoting your meetup. Use the #sporclemeetup hashtag and create a Facebook event to help reach your audience.
If you plan to host Sporcle meetups on a recurring basis, it’s worth the time put in to make a Facebook Page, Twitter handle or website.
