Not many primetime comedy shows can boast Ted Danson, moral philosophy lessons, and actual, honest-to-badness demons. Over its four seasons, The Good Place made us laugh, cry, and confront how terrible we all actually are. Its writers proved that a twist ending in the first season can be executed perfectly and then followed up on in an even more thought-provoking way.
So, whether your next trivia night covers all topics or focuses entirely on The Good Place, consider taking some inspiration from our favorite afterlife aficionados. Here are 20 trivia team names straight from the Good Place—although you may want to check to make sure that none snuck in from the Bad Place in disguise. Those demons can be squirrelly.
20 The Good Place Trivia Team Names
1. Holy Mother-Forking Shirtballs
You could also go by the name “The Shirtballs,” for short. Just make sure not to say this one too quickly or you may land yourself in a spot of bother.
2. Jeremy Bearimy
Time in the afterlife moves in a “Jeremy Bearimy,” where the dot over the “i” is Tuesdays, July, and sometimes never. Simple, right?
3. This Is the Bad Place
Iconic and, unfortunately, timely.
4. The Soul Squad
Also known as Team Cockroach.
5. Pobody’s Nerfect
This saying is a foolproof way to excuse all of your negative-point actions. Buy weed from your boyfriend’s nephew? Secretly befriend his ex-girlfriend and let things get so out of hand that now you’re her bridesmaid? “Pobody’s nerfect!”
6. Good Friends of Tahani
With this team name, you can join the ranks of Tahani’s other “good friends,” such as Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Sting, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and a host of royals.
7. The Legit Snacks
Chidi: “I know you’re deflecting by making jokes about how hot you are.”
Eleanor: “It’s not a joke! I’m a legit snack!”
8. Messy Benches Who Love Drama
Whether you’re a demon trying to get rid of your personal assistant’s new boyfriend or just a trivia team looking to scrap, all benches are welcome to use this name.
9. The Brainy Bunch
Trevor the demon may be terrible (on purpose), but he admittedly came up with a decent trivia team name.
10. Jason’s Bud-holes
It’s just a hole where Jason can relax and hang back with his buds.
11. The Worst Possible Use of Free Will
Michael said that the worst possible use of free will was going to pick up friends at the airport, but we think it’s probably having the opportunity to play some Good Place trivia and then not playing said Good Place trivia.
12. Quiz Quiz Resolution: We Resolve to Quiz
Jason’s dance crew, Dance Dance Resolution: We Resolve to Dance, was made up of 60 people, but we don’t think your trivia host will allow quite as many members on your team.
13. Peeps in the Chili Pot
This team name was brought to you by Chidi’s breakdown and existential crisis.
14. The Filibustered Recesses
“Congratulations, Chidi, you filibustered recess.”
15. Time-Knives in the IHOP
That’s IHOP as in the “Interdimensional Hole of Pancakes,” in case there was any confusion.
16. Ya Basic!
This name doubles as the perfect comeback to any insult from another team.
17. Donkey Doug and the Pillbois
Like peanut butter and jelly, Oreos and milk, and Romeo and Juliet, history will never forget the iconic duo of Donkey Doug and Pillboi.
18. The Not-a-Girls
Janet is not a girl, not a robot… but definitely a trivia master.
19. The Medium Place Team
We didn’t want to leave this list without a reference to the Medium Place and its sole occupant, the very medium Mindy St. Claire. As befits the realm, we went with the most medium team name possible.
20. Maximum Derek
This team name works especially well if all of your members are named Derek and/or if one of you happens to own a set of wind chimes.
