If you are planning a trivia contest as a fund-raiser, please, do a favor for yourself and those you want to support your event by having someone with experience provide the questions.

Too often, the questions are put together by committee and/or by someone who has never played trivia. As a result, many of the them are far too difficult and too often include dates, measurements, or insignificant quotes that almost no one knows. Or they are multi-part questions that require more than one answer. People who pay $10 or $20 each to support your cause don't expect to know all the answers. But if they know a few, they are far more likely to enjoy themselves and return the following year.

And when the questions are too difficult--- as they have been at two events that my friends and I have attended this year--- all you have to do is look around at the team tables to see that people are not having a good time.

Putting together a moderately difficult but still enjoyable set of questions is not as easy as those with no experience seem to think.
