Trivia at Twigs!

JJ Twigs and Buzztime Trivia

JJ Twigs is the only restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks to offer Buzztime trivia!  The cool thing about Buzztime (formally known as NTN trivia) is that players compete in various games against other players in the restaurant and against players nationally.  A player can also accumulate points by playing multiple games and garner bragging rights as the smartest person at JJ Twigs.

History of Buzztime

Buzztime has been around since 1985 and broadcasts trivia and other games on a national network to over 3800 bars and restaurants in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.  Buzztime offers several different kinds of trivia games based on a variety of subjects, including pop culture, entertainment, world history, geography, sports and music, as well as general trivia games with questions in many categories.

How Buzztime works

Buzztime players use "Playmakers" to answer the questions that are displayed on our television screens. Questions are answered by pressing numbered buttons that correspond to multiple-choice answers.  Points are awarded by getting the correct answer the fastest and winner is displayed at the end of the game.  You can choose your own unique name (we have some very clever names of players at JJ Twigs), and select an avatar for your name by going to the Buzztime website and signing up for a free account.

After each game, the top 20 players in the nation and top 20 establishments on the entire network (based on an average of the five highest scores at that establishment) are broadcast in a "Network Rankings" summary for each game. We have teams gather at JJ Twigs to partake in the battle of wits and to see how high the restaurant can rank nationally.

Test your knowledge!

The next time you come into JJ Twigs, ask for a game box and give Buzztime a try!  Games are available in the main bar area of our Bagnell Dam location and in Risky's.  Just ask your server and he or she will help you out!  Bring your friends and see who is the smartest of the bunch.
