OJAA will be hosting a free Trivia event on February 11th, 2021, at 7:00 P.M. Central time. You can register as an individual or as a team.
Those who register individually will be placed into teams randomly, which in my opinion, is half the fun! The event will be run by a professional Trivia company and will last 1 hour with an extended 30 minutes at the end if you wish to stay and catch up with others after the event. The event will be customized to focus on Omaha and the Omaha Jewish Community’s past, and will take many of you back in time while hopefully challenging you at the same time. Please let all your friends and family know who may be interested! There is a registration link below with more information and instructions:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
Trivia Mafia, a Minneapolis based company, will moderate the trivia event! Trivia Mafia is committed to providing the best trivia - even in a world when we can barely gather in person. Join us on Zoom for a fresh batch of enjoyably challenging questions about all kinds of topics, but most based in the Jewish community in Omaha.
- Follow the Zoom link provided to start the game; you can download Zoom on your computer, use the app on your phone or tablet, or join on the web (there's even an extension for Chrome). You can join up to twenty minutes early and size up the competition!
- Show your team spifrit by changing your screen name to start with your team name once you join! (This will also help the host sort you into the correct room.) If you prefer to take your chances with a new group of friends, then put "Random" as your team name.
- Your team will have its own Breakout Room to discuss the questions after each round! Plan to take notes while the questions are being read.
- The host will go over the Rules, read a round of five questions, then open the rooms (you'll see a prompt to Join your room at that time).
- You'll have five minutes to confer about the answers, and one person from your team will submit answers via a Google Form (provided during the Rules).
- The game will be 4 rounds of questions and take about an hour, and you'll see the team standings by the end. #braggingrights
- We hope you enjoy a fun quiz where you learn something new about the world, or at least about your teams
