Back to the Global Trivia Challenge
The Global Trivia Challenge!
Welcome to The Global Trivia Challenge, a game where thousands of
players from around the world compete for fun, knowledge, and bragging rights.
We run 19 category games and 4 special topics every 12 hours. Whether you want
to play by yourself, against a group of friends, for fun, competition, or
you have come to the right place.
Each player may play 6 category games or special topics each 12 hour period
(5 categories, plus Impossible!). As you accumulate points, you will graduate to
new divisions. As you beat other players your Trivia Rating
will change to reflect where you rank in our community!
Participation in The Global Trivia Challenge is completely free. However, some very cool features are available exclusively for
members, and we encourage you to sign up for this package if you enjoy your stay here at FunTrivia.
While competing against thousands of people from around the world is a lot of fun, it is even more enjoyable to compete and
compare with friends, family, and
FunTrivia provides you with a way of creating a team, inviting friends, and then comparing scores with them. See who can be the
first to get to Division 5,
or see who can maintain the highest average score. Team members can also share quizzes they create and chat on a private
All FunTrivia players begin in Division 1: The Newbies. As you
score advancement points and play games you will progress through
the division until you graduate to the next division.
Advancement points are based on how many questions you get correct,
modified by a time penalty. A small advancement point bonus is given if
you play in categories marked "*" ("Adventure Bonus"). A larger advancement point bonus is given if you play
categories marked (**) ("Special Topic Bonus"), because special topics will tend to be specific and more difficult than the
mixed question sets.
Each successive division will bring you more questions and a higher difficulty level for all questions. You will also be scored against players in your division,
representing those of similar ability and
play. Note that progression through the divisions is based on how well you perform
individually. Comparisons to other players is just for interest and competition. Where you place and the number of wins you have
does not matter to your progress through the divisions.
It will take you a lot longer to move up divisions as you progress. We suspect that in the end we will end up with a small number of players battling it out in

What is Hardcore Mode?
Hardcore mode is a mode that you can enable here. It is designed to give our more experienced players
new challenges. It is far more difficult to advance, and you are restricted in what categories you can play. Try this only if
you're looking for a difficult challenge! More details about hardcore mode can be found here.
When Does the Challenge End?
The challenge will run until at least 30 players reach Division 10: The Immortals. This will take approximately 6 months. At
that point our top players will be placed in the Hall of Fame. The top 30 players with most advancement in Immortals will then
be ordered by their player rating to determine the ultimate champions.
