Trivia prepartation

Postby stop the rainforest » Sun Jan 28, 2007 10:06 pm

What do teams do to prepare for trivia? This is going to be the third year Stop the Rainforest competes in trivia. For the most part we just show up and play. I have collected a lot of reference books and we utilize the internet a lot (i know some of you will hate me for that). I know a lot of you take notes so I have started to take notes myself. I'm taking notes on TV shows and movies i watch, as well as TV ads. Is there anything more specific I should know or that I should do?
Each year, the Rainforest is responsible for over three thousand deaths from accidents, attacks or illnesses. There are over seven hundred things in the Rainforest that cause cancer. Join the fight now and help stop the Rainforest before it's too late.

Sounds to me like you've made a good start. The key now is to get more teammates to do as you're doing. Get a core of 3 to 100 players who all take notes and collect books, and you're on your way. One thing, though: be patient. Most of the teams that finish in the top 20 to 30 each year have been doing what you do, but for quite a few years already.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm trying to spread my enthusiasm to my teammates. Right now I'm the only one really preparing, I have gotten a couple people to at least think about taking notes. I'm hoping to get a few answers out of my notes to convince people to do the same. Problem is I only have notes from the past year, and we know that questions come from all over. Most of my team is now several years removed from UWSP and people are getting more serious about trivia. The first year was just a big party but last year more people focused on trivia and said they had a better time than if they just got drunk. I hope to keep playing for decades to come and have a note data base that will be the envy of every UWSP freshman.

I always do a lot of stretching as part of my preparation, you never know what type of trivia-related injury one might get over the weekend.

Preparation for the Contest

If you're starting to build your Trivia database, get as much on computer as possible. Notes from last year will be more accessible and worth more this year if asked. I've been taking notes on movies for more than 25 years and my one regret is not having them all on file.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
