Every so often we do “flavoured” quizzes, which are just what they sound like. A theme is a specific property, Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, Friends etc. They’re really expensive to get the rights for, and if you don’t get the rights they’re illegal so it’s honestly just not worth it. We’re not aware of any trivia companies who actually have the rights to do themed quizzes. Just remember if you put on a themed trivia at your venue you’re liable to be sued by the rights holder. If you put on a special Star Wars themed show, you’d be up against the monolithic money machine that is Disney. Even if you do manage to get the rights, you have to put heaps of time and effort into marketing every single one because they all appeal to drastically different demos. That’s why flavoured quizzes work so well. Flavoured quizzes are special quizzes we do every so often, just like our normal quizzes, but this time they’re a bit special. They still have all the segments you know and love, but this time the questions are all about a specific topic. We’ve had flavours like “Christmas”, “Halloween”, “April Fools” etc. We do these shows at the relevant times around the year.
The same reliable crowd will come week after week and they’re rewarded with some exciting flavours throughout the year. Themed quizzes just don’t keep the punters coming like a general knowledge quiz does. There’s only so many times a Star Wars geek wants to do themed trivia before they lose interest. Because our shows always have a healthy dose of pop culture within them, we find the movie buffs and sci-fi nerds are always left satisfied. They keep coming, which means they keep spending money! What a win!
