Cy's House of Trivia
Cy's House of Trivia is an annual marquee event bringing together the best fans in the country for a competitive and fun game of trivia. Located on the floor of Hilton Coliseum, teams of eight enjoy an evening full of trivia, food and beverages, interaction with Cyclone coaches, former student-athletes, media personalities and a whole lot of fun!
Cy’s House of Trivia 2022 took place in Hilton Coliseum on April 9th, 2022. Check back in 2023 for information on Cy’s House of Trivia 2023.
The evening features eight rounds of interactive trivia with ten questions each round (trivia categories cover anything from movies, history, geography, music, sports and more). Cyclone celebrities, coaches, former athletes and other special guests will join in the fun and rotate throughout the evening as a “ninth player” helping trivia teams. From its humble beginnings in 2007 with less than 30 tables to now being sold out with 100 tables, this event is one all Cyclone fans look forward to each spring.
