About Us

Based in NYC, we’ve been providing trivia-related entertainment for over 15 years. Game Night Trivia is the fact-based entertainment company behind several leading trivia-related experiences.

Game Night Trivia (“GNT”) is our virtual trivia brand for the work-from-home audience. We conduct virtual trivia competitions via video conference for everything from birthday parties to employee happy hours, conferences and corporate celebrations.

You may know us as the team behind TriviaNYC, New York’s best and longest-running trivia event company, performing weekly live public trivia nights across New York City as well as private and corporate events, since 2006. 

We run an inter-bar competitive trivia league between bars and restaurants across New York (on hold due to COVID).

Our nation-wide trivia competition for the ”best of the best” in the trivia community has been held in Las Vegas for the last 10+ years.

Our hosts have been on Jeopardy!, Who Wants to be a Millionaire? and Cash Cab, among other game shows.  Our writers have been featured in national publications.  We’ve been hired to do trivia on just about any topic imaginable.

Fact-based entertainment. We do it better than anyone.
