I don't think it's unreasonable to say trivia is mostly late 20s to 30s. I'd expect this to be truer in the suburbs too. Even regular bada it's at least mid 20s and beyond

and that response was to the question, "Do thirtysomethings still do trivia?"

even put an "almost" in my answer

but if there's one thing that the internet loves, it's "well actually" guy

because it'd be weird for a stranger to walk up to a group of friends and ask if they could join their team?

and there is a limit to people per team?

it's kinda weird to just wander up to a team and ask to join but people have done that to us before and we were welcoming. I think the better course of action is to sit at the bar and ask people around you if they'd like to collaborate or ask to join a team already sitting at the bar. Going up to random tables will look/feel weirder but if you're cool I don't see it being a big problem for most teams.

^this and sometimes going to trivia is one of the only social things I do with that particular friend group during the week and we want to hang out with each other and not strangers.

Fucking stay home if you can't handle "strangers." It's not weird for people to ask to join a game.

^^ my initial point was saying that it's easier to play trivia when you show up with a team than it is to show up blindly and hope to join a team

and then listing reasons why it can be tough to join a team

and also it's perfectly reasonable to not want to play with randoms - that has nothing to do with snobbery or fear. that's like saying "don't go out to eat dinner with your spouse if you don't mind random people joining your table"

there is if there's no room on the team you're interested in joining

which has been the gist of this entire back and forth

This is the dumbest argument I've ever read on tww but it somehow very compelling. It helps that every party to the argument is a villain, no easy hero's

I was out having drinks with a friend just casually answering shit while eating (didn't know it was trivia night) and some couple came up to us and said we were on their team now.

I thought they were trying to swing at first

thats my story

I mean, I figured it might be neat to come out and meet some folks I've been conversing with for the past decade. It's not like I'm looking for a long term commitment here. Like, one trivia night or something.

And why tf and I a villain? What have I ever done that's villainous.

It's not that important. Just thought it'd be neat to come out one night. Didn't realize people were so untrivial about their trivia.
