TCONA3: Million Second Quiz, The Chase Come To Vegas Next Month
If you’re free the weekend of August 9-11, you might want to consider heading to the Tropicana in Las Vegas for the Trivia Championships of North America. This is TCONA’s third year, and aside from all the Quiz Bowl & regular trivia competitions and demonstrations, both GSN’s The Chase and NBC’s Million Second Quiz will be doing full showcases and contestant searches for their shows.
Mark “The Beast” Labbett will be there, to play along in some of the competitions and help present the new show. (BB’s own Alex Davis will also be interviewing him live onstage.)
And the production team & casting crew from MSQ will reveal a bit more about how that game (which is set to premiere live on NBC September 9) is played, and they’ll be doing a full contestant search.
TCONA3 is three full days of solo, duo & team competitions, including the national Quiz Bowl Championship, LearnedLeagueLive, a rolling Pub Quiz Lounge with presentations of different kinds of bar trivia from around the US & Canada, the American Championships of Knodgeball, the first Trivia Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony, a live taping of web game show The Experts, plus app demonstrations, live game show mockups, and a ton of other events.
Registration for the whole weekend is $169, and there are hotel discounts available.
