I had the auditorium reserved for Wednesday evening because it was supposed to be Young Adult Trivia Night. I have started doing "Young Adult" programs (for ages 18-29) at the request of the people who USED to be teens but have since grown up. Unfortunately, they haven't been as popular as I'd have hoped. I ended up opening trivia night up to all ages, and a lively group of about a dozen teens and young adults had a great time.
TRIVIA NIGHT SPECIFICS:
We play pub style. Usually 8-10 rounds, with 3 questions in each round. I ask a question, and they write down the answer on a slip of paper and assign it either 1, 2, or 3 points. You can only use each point value once per round. They have the length of one song to answer the question and bring me the paper. Simple! I write the questions myself and try to use a wide variety of topics. It is important that you tell them before you start that they have to put their phones away, or one team will raaaather suspiciously know that the 13th president was Millard Fillmore.
