In the game of pub trivia, you win or you die.
Wait… no, that’s something else. In pub trivia, you win or you have a good time with your friends and go home happy. And even if you can’t win, you can stunt on everyone by having the funniest, most relevant team name. That’s what we’re all about. And these Game of Thrones trivia team names are just the ticket.
Game of Thrones Trivia Team Names
1. Jorah? I Hardly Know ‘ah
A GoT twist on a classic joke structure is the perfect blend of new school and old school.
2. Sanse and Sansability
If Sansa had been written by Jane Austen, things would’ve turned out a lot better for her.
3. Release the Hound
Everyone feels the urge to let their wild side out sometimes. It’s just that the Hound’s wild side is his primary personality. So guard your food carefully if you order chicken.
4. Jorah the Explorer
If you don’t sing, you’re wasting a lot of potential with this team name. Some suggested lyrics:
Jorah Jorah Jorah the Explorer
Mormont the super cool explorer Jorah
Grab your long sword, let’s go!
5. Arya Ready for This?
A girl has many faces, and a simple question can have many answers. Just kidding, the answer is obviously yes.
6. Quiz Maesters
Naming your team after the most educated group in all of Westeros is bold, but appropriately nerdy for a trivia team. Take that inspiration even further and start a mixed metal chain with a link for every category you master.
7. No Ygrittes
Maybe your group of friends is distinctly anti-Wildling. Maybe you just want to see Jon Snow end up with someone else in particular. Maybe you just love a good bit of wordplay. No matter which it is, embrace it without regrets.
8. The Usurpers
Some bars seem to have a clear alpha team. Every time you go into the final question, you’re mentally calculating what it would take to catch them. Let everyone know that you intend to rise up and take that top spot. Make The Stag King proud.
9. We’re Number Wun Wun
This team name comes with a little G.R.R.M. fun fact from an NPR interview. Wun Wun is named for Phil Simms of the New York Giants, who wore the #11 on his jersey. The knight he kills in A Dance With Dragons carries a shield with a silver backing and a single blue star… so Dallas Cowboys fans may want to avoid this name.
10. Watchers on the Wall
The Night’s Watch is a lifetime commitment, so be thoughtful about taking this name. For the selling points, though: you could come up with a pretty excellent team vow, and everyone looks good in black.
11. A Team Has No Name
Cryptic, soft spoken, and oddly-grammared, Jaqen H’ghar introduces Arya to the world of Faceless Men. If you identify with the mysterious and inevitable, this is the perfect (non) name.
12. Get Rich or Die Tywin
Really, Papa Lannister did both of these, so they’re not exactly mutually exclusive. Still, this name makes your priorities crystal clear.
13. That’s So Three-Eyed Raven
This name is perfect for the team that seems to pull correct answers right out of the air. Are they a force for good? Evil? Something else entirely? No one knows. But using the weirwood net is definitely cheating.
14. A Lannister Always Pays His Tab
Hopefully everyone at the bar is always paying their tab, but this name gives it a bit more panache.
15. Team Sporcle of the House Quizzes, First of Their Name, the Unwrong, Victors of the Word Ladders and the Quick Picks, Masters of the Geography Category, Typers of Kyrgyzstan, and Winners of Pub Trivia
There’s a distinct possibility that you’ll only get to hear your trivia host say this once before they give you a nickname or acronym, but man, that one time is going to be great.
