    HOUSE OF TRIVIA SOLD OUT

    AMES, Iowa – The 2010 Cy’s House of Trivia April 17 is sold out. It is the first time that the event, in its fourth year, has sold out the full Hilton Coliseum complement of 70 tables. The trivia contest, starts at 6 p.m. It follows the 2 p.m. spring football game in Jack Trice Stadium.

    “April 17 will be a great day for our fans,” Iowa State athletics director Jamie Pollard said. “They can watch the spring game and then head for Hilton Coliseum. When we decided to begin the House of Trivia contest four years ago, we knew our fans would enjoy the evening.”

    A team of eight individuals make up a table. The teams are asked 10 questions from eight different categories over the course of the evening. There are prizes for the top finishing teams.

    “We literally could not fit another table on the floor of Hilton Coliseum,” said assistant athletics director for special events Ryan McGuire. Our first year we had 28 tables. Last year we had 54 tables. Now we are sold out at 70 tables.”

    Andy Fales of WHO-TV will be the evening’s emcee.

    CPR/optimism has to be major reason for the sell out.

    Wow, nice that it sold out... Some of us from our tailgating group (also several CF members) got one table last year, and now 2 tables worth are coming this year. ). Definitely a lot of fun.

    This will be my first time. How long did it last the last 2 years?

    Um...to be honest I dont remember, mainly because I end up loaded by the end of the competition. 3-4 hours would be my guess?

    From the time the doors open to the end of the last round, count on being there at least 4 hours. The trivia doesn't start until 6, and there's an intermission in the middle for pizza, etc... I don't think we've gotten out of Hilton much before 10, and we've been going ever since the first year they held it.

    Re: HOUSE OF TRIVIA SOLD OUT

    Highlight of the 2 years I have been to this competition is easily having a very, very drunk Wayne Bolt sit down at our table as our guest player. This was, at most, 2-3 hours after the Spring Game. Dude loved wine, and dude was no good at trivia.
