Worldquest is an exciting game of international trivia, played in teams of 8, with four rounds of questions. Answers are submitted by teams, not individuals. It's a great way to test your knowledge of international issues. Anyone can participate in Worldquest. Teams can be formed by businesses, schools, clubs, or groups of friends. If you want to play but don't have a team, we will find one for you. Competition is both fun and fierce! Our 2017 champion was Mayer Brown LLP with their team, Guilt Trip Around the World! The game is played in four rounds. Your team has 30 seconds to answer each question. Answer sheets are submitted at the end of each round. The trophy goes to the team with the highest number of points at the end of four rounds. In the event of a tie, a sudden death round will be played.What kind of questions will be asked?The questions will be timely and relevant, covering topics such as international politics, current events, economics, geography, and culture.
