LIVE Kahoot Trivia Game - Super Bowl

Date: February 7, 2021  |  3:00PM
Day: Sunday
Location: Virtually anywhere!
Fee: Free!

Let's tailgate together, Middletown! Join in our live Kahoot Trivia Game as you start your Super Bowl festivities. Free and fun for the whole family!

This Kahoot game is geared towards the Super Bowl, but not to worry...you don't need to be a football fanatic to play! The Super Bowl is much more than just football...think commercials, music, and food too! 

To play, you’ll need one screen to watch the event and see the questions and answers. Every participant will need their own “signaling device” (any smartphone, tablet, or additional computer). So grab your phones, gather around the dinner table, and see who in your family is a trivia master! Questions range in difficulty, so everyone has a chance to win. 

A prize will be awarded to the top trivia master! Prizes will be available for pick-up only at Poricy Park - Nature Center during normal business hours.

One hour session includes hike, experiment, and checking on tapped trees. Maximum of 15 scouts and up to 5 adults.
