KAMLOOPS - Jonesing for Game of Thrones? Fret not, a GOT themed trivia night is ready to take the edge off.

The trivia event will be in Kamloops on July 20 at the Fox ’n' Hounds Pub and July 13 at Rusty’s Sports Lounge.

The popular television show has a worldwide fanbase and wrapped up the series this year with its eighth season. 

 Tremendous Trivia Night Productions, which hosts weekly trivia nights at different restaurants and venues around B.C., hosts the event.  Weekly common knowledge trivia nights are held at different restaurants, but the theme nights are a little rarer. The company has organized themed trivia nights such as Harry Potter, Friends, and The Office.

The organization has already had success with a Game of Thrones themed event in Kelowna, which will be coming back this month on July 13.

“With the end of season eight of Game of Thrones, we thought this would be a good time do a Game of Thrones trivia,” says John Davey, who is organizing the event.

Tickets are going to $14 per person, with a discount for group purchases. Ticket holders are encouraged to dress up as their favourite Game of Thrones character. Iron throne trophies will be given out to the best individual costume and group who wins the trivia challenge, according to Davey.

“It's not always just the costume and the detail, but it’s also if you're in-character you usually get a better response from the audience,” says Davey.

The top costumes will be selected by judges, with the audience deciding the ultimate winner.

In addition to the iron thrones, there will be Game of Thrones related merchandise and prizes for the costume and trivia winners, according to Davey.

Davey says not only will there be themed trivia, decorations, and a costume contest, but there will also a specially crafted menu for the event.

“We’re going to have a themed beer, shots, and wine. There will be themed dinner and themed appetizer,” says Davey. He couldn’t specify what the menu will look like yet but he has been coordinating with the restaurant on dishes and drinks.

The event takes place at the Fox’n Hound pub, #20-945 W Columbia St. The trivia begins at 7:30 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. The Fox’n Hounds Pub will remain open to the public during the event.

The event in Kelowna will take place from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 13 at Rusty’s Sports Lounge, 1525 Dilworth Dr. You can buy tickets for the Kelowna event here.
