Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 1 August 2021

So Brisbane is hosting the Olympics.

That means they’re going to need a mascot.

For your team name this week, we want you to suggest a mascot for the Brisbane Olympics.

Perhaps Captain Underpants would be interested in the job.

There’s also a petition to make a bin chicken the mascot.

Charlie the Cane Toad

Literally millions of spiders

A white elephant

Any suggestions for Brisbane’s mascot will get you a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 31 July 2021

Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.


If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.


Knowing the difference between centripetal and centrifugal equals cash.

Having an international team pays off when we ask a jackpot question on Japanese customs.


Whose heroic? These people…

Tobruk the Horse

That guy who gives you their parking ticket whilst they’re leaving the parking lot, and the ticket is still valid for another hour

The teammate who hosts the Zoom call

Whoever invented leggings with pockets

I keep telemarketers on the line

The guy who invented pasta

A Subway sandwich artist who loads you up

The person who pays for the Netflix account

Ariane Titmus’ coach

I took my canvas bags to the supermarket

I eat the bread ends

I put Murdoch’s papers behind a paywall

Designated drivers

Trivia host who doesn’t force team name topics

The trivia host who give you hints when you don’t know the answer

I always put the cap back on the toothpaste

Whoever remembers the toilet paper on a camping trip

And perhaps most heroically… Bill the Trivia Host

Creamy Hippopotamus

Cantankerous Grasshopper

Gymnastic Tailgate


Spelling mistakes can matter. Like when you misspell High Hopes as High Hoes. Which means something VERY different.

How I Met Your Mother featured characters like Kramer, Newman, George Costanza, Art Vandelay, and Smelly Cat. Nope. Wrong New York based sitcoms.

See you next week.

Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 25 July 2021

You may have heard of this heroic McDonald’s employee.

I “accidentally” deleted all the footage of Celebrity Big Brother

I deported Katie Hopkins.

Any low level heroism will get a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 24 July 2021

If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.


We’ve got some very petty people at our trivia nights.

Put coffee in the shower head

Suck out the cream filling & inject mayonnaise. That’ll teach you to steal my donut.

Not making a tea for my sister

Taking the batteries out of the remote

Pooping in your toilet and not flushing

Correcting someone’s grammar while talking to them

Removing your precious bookmark

Making half the bed

Paying my bar tab entirely with 5 cent coins

Glitter bomb your foes

Answering the door naked to protest being stuck in quarantine

Accidentally” pulling the power cord on the console when I’m losing at Mario Kart

Shrimp tails in curtain rails

Calling the CEO of Pfizer

Moon Landing

Phat Straw

Beautiful Kangaroo

Infectious Slug


We were given “turkey” as the last place subject, and so wrote questions on the bird. It turns out they meant the country. (This is why you should be specific when choosing last place subjects.)

We were pleased to see that the only team to get a special subject question on Parks and Recreation was the team that chose Parks and Recreation as the special subject, which meant that the special subject did exactly what it’s designed to do.

And we had a couple of one off trivia shows to make up for the fact that a lot of our live venues are shut down. If you need online or live trivia for your next event, you know how to contact us.

See you next week.
