Top Trivia Nights in Columbus

Or should we say, the ColumBest trivia nights?

We know what you’re thinking: “Pub trivia? Like, questions about 1800s history read off index cards? No thanks.” Well, hold on a minute, because pub trivia has come a long way since the early days when it was simply the bar version of Trivial Pursuit. Nowadays, pub trivia is a potpourri of topics that brings players together with varying subject strengths to form a competitive team.

That’s all well and good, but we believe it’s the beloved host that takes the challenging content, adds music and splash of personality, and turns a routine night out into a memorable one.

Sporcle Live’s hosts don’t just make a splash in players’ weeknight routine…they cannonball! If you want to take a step outside the ordinary in Columbus, Ohio, we’d like to introduce you to some of our finest hosts in the area. These three hosts will welcome you with a smile, explain the rules clearly, help you out as needed, tell a joke or two, and look forward to welcoming you back the next week. Each of them puts on a trivia night that’s a good fit for different types of Columbusites…
