826michigan’s Trivia for Cheaters makes a triumphant return with
special guest and podcasting SUPERSTAR Alex Goldman. Not only is Alex an Ann Arbor native, but he is the current co-host of Reply All, a veritable podcast smash hit on Gimlet Media. His work has also appeared on 99% Invisible, On the Media, Slate, and elsewhere. He tries to be nice to everyone (quite successfully!) and we invite you to come meet him for yourself. Rally your team of two, three, or four now and get set to compete in FWIW: Trivia for Cheaters with Reply All Creator, Host, and Podcasting Superstar—ALEX GOLDMAN!
FWIW: Trivia for Cheaters is a fast-paced trivia competition like none other. Teams of two to four people raise funds prior to the event, which they will then use to cheat their way through three rounds of pop trivia centered on our favorite topics: books, radio, and the internet. Questions range in difficulty from, “everyone knows that” to “obscure factoid.” Cheats include “Five Brains Are Better Than Four,” in which teams can choose to add an extra member, and “Computers R Smart But R They Smarter Than Us,” which allows teams the use of one smartphone during gameplay. Between rounds, competing teams and spectators alike will have fun Asking Alex Almost Anything, playing Emoji Translator, and winning prizes while sipping on drink specials provided by North Peak Beer and the Pretzel Bar.
ATTENTION, EVERYONE! In addition to supporting 826michigan's free writing and tutoring programs serving 4,000 students across the region, ALL TRIVIA FOR CHEATERS DONORS will be entered into a prize drawing for personal delights! They include:
