What Is the Special Event Topic of the Month?

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2021)

There’s a lot of knowledge out there to celebrate.

Each month, special event customers have the option to substitute in questions related to diversity, heritage, social justice, or awareness – at no extra cost.

This is a chance for your group to both learn something new and recognize the diversity in this world and perhaps among themselves.

You’re able to make your entire game about this topic, or just sprinkle in a few questions. Just let us know what you’d prefer!


The 2021 topics are…

January:

TBD

February:

February is Black History Month, and can we just take a moment to say Black Lives Matter? Black History matters, too, so let’s spend a trivia game honoring the triumphs and struggles of African Americans throughout U.S. history, including the civil rights movement and artistic, cultural, and political achievements.

March:

March is Women’s History Month! To celebrate, sub in a set of questions all about the movers and shakers who fought for the vote, held the home front, refused to be silenced, and made herstory. We hope your group will leave this event feeling empowered and inspired.

April:

Accessibility is the future! Use this set of questions at your event and your group will leave feeling more knowledgeable of the challenges those with disabilities face — and the triumphs they’ve celebrated. Maybe it will inspire a conversation about how your group can be more inclusive!

May:

What is the nine-letter term for a community of living organisms and their environment? Ecosystem! What five-letter term includes tundra and savannah? Biome! Learn about the wonders of the natural world and be inspired to reduce, reuse, and recycle with this trivia game for Climate Change Awareness.

June:

LGBTQ Pride Month is celebrated each June to to honor the Stonewall Uprising. Do you know what year it took place? 1969! How about who its leaders were? Marsha P Johnson, among others! Choose this set of questions to celebrate the gender and sexuality diversity within your own staff, as well as to learn about the prejudices that led to protests that allow the parades of today.

July:

Most of us know that July 4th is Independence Day. But did you know John Adams wanted to celebrate on July 2nd? Did you know the actual signing of the declaration happened in August? American History is full of fun facts and unexpected trivia! This question set is sure to inform your group’s perspective on the nation’s history and it will perhaps inspire some healthy patriotism.

August:

Immunization Awareness Month is held in August to highlight the importance of vaccination for people of all ages. Particularly in these post-COVID times, it’s important for everyone to understand that vaccines are safe, effective, powerful, and protective. Sub this set of questions in at your trivia event to give your group a fun way to learn about vaccines and show off what they already know!

September:

Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. Sub in this set of trivia questions to join us in celebrating Hispanic scientists, athletes, artists, politicans, actors, and more – not to mention the music and food!

October:

This game of spoooOOOooooOOOky trivia will be a total treat for your group! Each question will give ’em pumpkin to talk about and lift their spirits. If you’re dying to have fun and don’t mind things getting a little batty, then this Halloween game is the game for you.

November:

Do you know why Veterans Day is celebrated on November 11? The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month is when WWI hostilities formally ended. Celebrate the 18 million living Veterans in the U.S., maybe even some amongst your group, with trivia questions that range from history to politics to geography and more.

December:

We tend to think of winter as a time of rest, hibernation, and quiet. But a look at the calendar reveals many holidays around the world that prove this impression entirely wrong! Think about Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanzaa, the Winter Solstice, Three Kings Day, St. Lucia Day, and more. Wrap all of that winter cheer and holiday merriment up into one trivia event with this question set about inclusive winter holidays.
