They say the hardest part of playing RPGs is scheduling the sessions. If you have serveral people in your group, chances are that one of them is running late. How do you reward the members who made it on time, without starting the adventure short-handed?

Tonight's contestants:

  • A first-time player from work

  • A rules lawyer friend that you still know from high-school

  • And, our returning champion, your roommate's sister playing over zoom

Our Trivia Game product is a simple grid of questions arranged by category and point value. You read the questions, and the players tell you "what is" the answer.

Our first set has 50 bits of D&D 5e rules trivia. Source files are included for you to create new questions that interest you.
