The 80s are back and it's like they have never left. Quite possibly the best decade (definitely the best babies were born in the 80s!), and if you agree, then you probably have a lot of useless trivia knocking around in your head. Well, it is useless no longer. You can put it to the test at the Supersized Game Night, thanks to Optus Stadium and Bamboozled Quizmasters.
Played through your phone, this is no ordinary quiz. There will be no tables, paper or pens. You will find yourself in the seating bowl area, with all guests (both box and general admission) in the grandstands. Don't worry though, it is easy to play, there will be 340sqm super screens being used for the questions. There will also be the halo lights on and massive sound systems.
There are many prizes to be won, some of them worth $1,000. You can even win tickets and a box to the 2022 State of Origin. You have multiple chances to win, thanks to the trivia night and the musical bingo. And once you have won a bunch of radical prizes, then you can dance the rest of the night away to the 80s afterparty.
It isn't a prerequisite that you have to dress up in your best 80's gear, but why wouldn't you? What's better than leg warmers, perms, mullets, along with lots of velour and spandex will make you stand out in the best way! It's unsure if there is a prize for best dressed, but you should dress up, just in case.
If you do intend to go, tickets are selling out fast. $30 will get you a standard ticket, and if you are going with your crew, then there is a ten-person limit. Food and drink aren't included but can be purchased on the night. If you wanted to buy an 8 or 10 seater box, then it is too late- they have sold out. But it was between $400 and $500. So honestly, it's cheaper to go the other way anyway.
Doors open on Friday, 1st of October at 6pm and the quiz starts at 7:30pm. The party will go until late, but you won't want it to end anyway!
