Winner’s Circle

To be verified for the winner’s circle, teams must tweet a photo or screenshot of their completed answers sheet (tagging @TriviaWithBens) within 12 hours of each game. Starting April 14, 2020, we will also accept photos of answer sheets emailed to us at triviawiththebens@gmail.com.

(P.S. to other trivia hosts: Please be kind and credit us if you’re planning to poach our questions. We all work hard on these 😉)
