ShanRock's Triviology: Portland's Best Quizzery Since 2005!

Trivia Jock ShanRock and her team host fun and unique trivia nights all over town, several times a week. It's free to play, and the team victorious walks away with cash or prizes . . . and perhaps more importantly, glory! Have you tried the rest? Now try the best! Willamette Week's Best of Portland, that is! Also, I am thrilled that my team has been selected by the people of Portland as their Favorite Trivia Night in the Portland Mercury Reader's Choice Survey many times! In addition, I have been honored as Best Entertainer In North Portland, have won BarFly's Town's Terrific-est TJ several times, and had my La Merde quiz night awarded the Portland Monthly title of Best Bar To Play! Triviology and Portland have been making beautiful trivia together for over fifteen years; join us for the next fifty!

Triviology TeleQuizzery!
Live Interactive Trivia!
$20 per team; max team size = 5
$10 per solo player
Prizes for the champion teams!




Quizzery in the time of Coronavirus! The show must go on, so we have launched a live, interactive TeleQuiz which you can play on your phone, computer or tablet via Zoom. This new way to play Triviology still allows you to see and interact with other teams; it's just not pub quizzery without trash talking and hilarious wrong answers! You can either play solo or have as many as five people on your team; your crew does NOT have to be in the same room to play together. We will be hosting both Classic Triviology quizzes, which include pop culture and book learnin', and theme quizzes. To join an already scheduled game, or to book one on your own time (different pricing for a private game!), contact shanrockstrivia@gmail.com. I recommend reserving a spot early, as the games often sell out; to maintain the quality of your experience, I do put a cap on the number of teams. Let's have some fun; we deserve it! For now, here are scheduled Triviology quizzes that you are welcome to join...

Tuesday, June 2nd, 5:30 PM - a few spots available!

Tuesday, June 2nd, 8:00 PM - a few spots available!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 7:00 PM - lots of spots available!

Thursday, June 4th, 7:00 PM - lots of spots available!

Saturday, June 6th, 7:00 PM - Fast & The Furious Trivia: lots of spots available!

15 Winnings of Fame!

February 15th, 2011
Next Sunday is the Clash of The Trivia Titans, and everyone is invited to play! It’s only $5 person, which gains you entry for the whole event . . . and a prize! Registration is at 5:00, and the Olympian Open (which is a regular Triviology quiz, minus the Physical and Whammy challenges) starts at 5:30. The Olympian champion becomes the wild card seed who goes on to compete in The Titan Invitational (same format as The Open), which will start about 8. The Titans are those teams that have won . . . 15 times or more since the last Clash of the Trivia Titans.That’s right, I have lowered the magic qualifying number to 15! Why? Because I endeavor each year to find the perfect number that doesn’t shut any teams out of Titanship by only one win. Every single team this year has won 15 times or more, OR 13 teams or less. And, for those intrepid teams that are still struggling to become Titans, it is possible for you to still qualify, right up until The Slammer quiz the day before the tournament! Here are your best bets for wins: Cruzroom on Tuesday @ 7, The WorkShop Pub on Wednesday @ 8:30, or Kenton Club on Thursday @ 9.

As of today, here are your Trivia Titans for 2011:

Carpool Lane Prostitutes
Drunken Regrets
Especially In The Mornings
Kathleen Turner Overdrive
Odie & The Dirt Legs
Publick Edumakatorz
Team Evil Jesus
Olympian Open Champion: Your Name Here!
If you think your name should be on this list, but it’s not . . . please let me know (and check out the Hall of Fame)! And if you’d like more details about the event, including prizes, full schedule, etc., explore the COTT page. And even if you don’t win any awards for trivia prowess at the tournament, there are still lots of ways to score a trophy! For example, there’s The Spirit Bunny Award! At The Half-Time Show, after my trivia jockeys perform for us, it will be your team’s turn to show off! Your presentation may be as simple or as elaborate as you wish, and the team who receives the loudest applause will win this glorious trophy:


Also, whether you know it or not, you’ve been competing for other awards all year long: Best Shit-Talkers, Favorite Foes, and The Underdog Award (for that tenacious team that keeps on playing, even though they never seem to win). YOU will determine these categories (and Best Bartender & Favorite Venue) by voting, either at a venue during trivia (as many of you have already done), or by taking this short survey. One vote per person please! Guess which trophy this is:

How about these bad boys?



OK, back to knitting that final champion scarf! And remember that I now have a ShanRock’s Triviology “Like” page on FaceBook, as well as a Clash of the Trivia Titans Event Page, if you’d like to start the smack-talk early.

Beauteous Pints!

February 1st, 2011
Did you know that beverages taste more delicious when consumed out of an object you won? It’s true! And tomorrow night, your team has a chance to win a whole set of ShanRock’s Triviology pint glasses, only at Beauty Bar:
Sadly, this will be our final night making the trivia at this venue, so this will be your last chance to make your mark here! And don’t despair, John Gordon fans – he will continue on as trivia jockey at Kenton Club. He had a blast with the crowd there last Thursday, and wants you to come play with him!
Here’s the lastest on the Clash of the Trivia Titans (which must be fast approaching since the 6th anniversary of Triviology was last Wednesday!) . . . although absolutely everyone is welcome to participate in the game, it is the teams who won 18 times or more in 2010 that will qualify to officially participate in the Titan Invitational portion of the evening. Check out the details here, and feel free to call or Email me with any questions. If you haven’t been keeping a tally of your wins, fear not – I have! All the champions for the “trivia season” (the whole year since the last Clash of the Trivia Titans) are listed in my Hall of Fame. If you think you’re close, it is a good idea to contact me, and make sure that I have the same win tally as you do.  If you want more wins (you can play to qualify right up to the very day before the tournament), I highly recommend playing at either Da’ Hui on Mondays or Cruzroom on Tuesdays – we happen to have lower attendance at these venues right now, so the odds are in your favor!

And here’s something for everybody to think about – you will soon be called upon to vote. Yes, I hand out several engraved trophies for high scores in the trivia competition, but YOU will decided these categories: Best Bartender, Favorite Venue, Favorite Foes, Best Shit-Talkers, and, to a certain degree, The Underdog Award. I will take suggestions for The Underdog Award, but I will bestow it upon the tenacious team who continues playing trivia even though they never seem to win much. I am of course in a unique position to observe the performances of all teams, so I will cast a heavily weighted vote on this one. The rest is up to you, so be thinking about what teams you love to hate, or hate to love, and where you most enjoy gettin’ your quiz on! I actually ordered the trophies today, so your trivia jockeys should be bringing them around and showing them off at venues by next week. Take a peak at some of the trophies & champion scarves from a couple of years ago (I have several more ordered for this year):


The kids have been telling me I need a ShanRock’s Triviology “Like” page on FaceBook . . . so now we’ve got one! I invite you to show me some love by clicking on the infamous “Like” button. Of course, I will still totally be your friend on my profile page, (which will still probably be at least 50% Triviology related!), and there’s always still the ShanRock’s Triviology Group, as well.

On a final note, East Burn trivia will go on as normal this Sunday at 6:00, despite the Super Bowl – the show must go on!
