So you think you know everything there is to know about what might not be important to know?

The Comox Valley Art Gallery invites you to come out for a fun-filled and hilarious night of trivia Sept. 29. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the quiz starts at 7.

What is a trivia night and how does it work?

Similar to the popular Trivial Pursuit board game played at home, series of questions are asked and the goal is to get the most questions correct. At a trivia night, one person called the quizmaster is chosen ahead of time to ask all the questions, rather than everyone taking turns. It keeps things running more smoothly. Also in this case, instead of individuals competing, teams of eight people work together, putting their efforts in to agree on one answer per question.

The team with the most number of correct questions wins the main prize. Teams will compete for prizes and (mostly) glory. CVAG will be able to register 10 teams.

Local architect Martin Hagarty will cook up a feast of questions; topics will range from art to sports, entertainment, history, popular culture, animals and more. With quizmaster Martin at the helm, it is sure to be an entertaining evening. There will also be a cash bar and some light refreshments.

Teams will consist of eight persons; cost is $10 per person. Individuals may also register and will be assigned to a team.

If you would like to register a team or donate a small prize, contact Anh at 338-6211. The Comox Valley Art Gallery is located at 580 Duncan Ave. in downtown Courtenay.
