Feature: Quiz Night at Champs
An old favorite reinvents itself with a thrilling weekly Quiz Night
Champs Sports Bar & Grill is certainly a fixture in Accra’s nightlife scene. And it’s no wonder, because its location (within Paloma Hotel on the Ring Road) makes it the perfect after-work wind down spot and weekend turn up spot. Hence, Quiz Night at Champs is definitely an event that should be a part of your weekend and weekday calendar.
The Quiz Night Format
Thanks to Quiz Night, Champs comes alive every Thursday evening. From 7pm, groups of friends of all ages converge at Champs to one-up each other on trivia. Each Quiz Night has a fun but challenging theme. The quizmaster explores the theme in four rounds which test knowledge of popular and obscure facts, as well as listening, acting, and visual identification skills. For instance, the quizmaster selected the theme of “Movies” for February 1. For the first round teams listened to snippets of movie soundtracks and identified the movie names. In the second round they guessed the names of movies from their posters. In the third round they had to remember obscure movie facts such as the names of Cinderella’s fairy godmother. For the record, they are Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. In the final round, each team had to silently act out and correctly guess the names of 4 movies.
The rules of Quiz Night are simple: to participate, each team member must purchase a 20 cedi food and drink voucher at the door. There are no phones allowed during the rounds to prevent team members from googling information, and there is no limit to the number of members of each team.
Try something different this Thursday: gather a group of friends who know obscure facts about music, movies, and sports, and head to Champs for a great evening! The prizes are bragging rights (competition is palpably fierce) and generous Champs meal vouchers for the first 3 teams.
