Using Steel Trap Trivia, I lost 15 lbs, saved hundreds of dollars and gained the confidence I needed to get ahead in today’s economy. Thanks, Steel Trap Trivia! –Dan Ford, Allentown
Steel Trap Trivia has allowed me to put to use the copious amount of severely pathetic (YET TOTALLY AWESOME) knowledge i maintain about ‘Lord of the Rings’ while also nailing almost every Ryan’s Sports Report question. Not only that–I have entrusted that the Wit has enough Vitamin C to keep a player healthy enough to endure the ridiculousness that ensues during a single game of trivia. –Dana Carey, Bethlehem
I continue to play Steel Trap Trivia every week despite my own consistently poor performance. This must therefore prove one or more of the following:
1) Steel Trap Trivia is indeed an excellent time and a splendid way to spend your Wednesday evening.
2) Hope and perseverance are the opiates of the unskilled.
3) I am secretly in love with the hilarious and charismatic hosts. Come play Steel Trap Trivia – have a great time, abandon all hope, and fall in love! –Juggy Gales (not his real name), Bethlehem
What do you want me to add? Make it less “full of myself?” On second thought, take it down or I will. I hate when my Ego manifests. –Drake Myre (also not his real name), Allentown
Steel Trap Trivia has replaced my Viagra®. –Joel Garcia, Bethlehem
Hall of Fame
Description: Ranging in size anywhere from two to as many as 6, this gang of intelligent hoodlums rarely fails to show when the smell of Trivia—or blood–is in the air. Pictured here, their two ringleaders.
Distinguishing Characteristics: Bluster, confidence, loud demands to “Play the hits!” Extensive knowledge of superheroes, professional wrestling, Nineties Brit Pop, and Top 40 radio.
Crimes: Playlist hijacking, exploitation of semantics
One of the Big Three longest-serving teams
Aliases: Blank Blank Sandwich; A. Racist
Description: Averaging 6 members (though usually whittled down to two by 10:30 or so), this brightly colored, athletic group meets beforehand to jog, in order to offset the beer calories they pack on during our game.
Distinguishing Characteristics: Cheerful, well-stretched, deadly in the short sprint. If you outlast them, you can sometimes snatch up the growler they leave behind.
Crimes: Sweatiness, premature departure
Description: This cheerful team is back to occasionally raid us after a long, uninterrupted spell of peace. They’re a hip bunch with wide-ranging knowledge to match. Pictured here: a full quorum.
Distinguishing Characteristics: “Star Wars” t-shirts, hip glasses, ravishing red hair.
Crimes: Varied team name spelling, sporadicness, theme suggesting
Aliases: Electric Dream Machine vs. Chemical Toilet
Description: A model team, full of enthusiasm, if somewhat modest, as evidenced by this mug shot. Caution: they wield the Totally Stumped Pass like Sauron wields The One Ring. Do not underestimate this team.
Distinguishing Characteristics: Also “Star Wars” t-shirts, Cthulhu, extensive knowledge of “The Lord of the Rings” and hockey.
Crimes: Frequent theft of funniest answer, wisecrackery, excellent attendance
Aliases: Bloody Human Baby Bludgeon; Bloody Human Baby Barnacle Bill’s Home Pregnancy Test
Description: A long-serving team of low-key bandits and other hyphenated terms, their posse will frequently swell to 14 members or more—although how many of them are there to contribute is contestable. Some members will flee to the U.K. on occasion, presumably to avoid extradition. Rogue elements of the group also comprise local indie rock combo Scott Pine & the Conifers.
Description: Beards, beards, and more beards. Particular strengths In Civil War history, Local Lore, “Doctor Who.”
Crimes: Disloyalty (you know who you are), overuse of ironic t-shirts, secession
Aliases: Drive Changry; The Big Chang Theory; Everybody Loves Lana Del Raymond
Description:Another of the Big Three longest <ahem> tenured teams, this gang has marked its territory with a string of victories even Timur the Lame would envy. Their secret? Well-roundedness (we guess) Who knows what they do with their comic book shop winnings, besides occasionally donate them to charitable causes.
Distinguishing Characteristics: High alcohol tolerance, mellowness, knowledge of sociology, good memories, several degrees
Crimes: Waste of perfectly good comic book shop gift certificates, tricking hosts into drinking Prairie Fire shots, defrauding Medicare
Aliases: Under the Stairs, Biden Our Time; Under the Stairs, Looking For a Corporate Sponsor; Oh, Kate, Where Have You Been? These Other Guys Are D****es
Description: In semi-retirement, this fresh-faced team is one of the Big 3 going way back with us. Alas, that much knowledge just can’t be contained, and they’re currently in diaspora mode. But when they make it back, they … well, they’re still all smiles.
Distinguishing Characteristics: Photographic, photogenic, scream-y. Extensive Local/American Revolution knowledge.
Crimes: Distraction, soul-stealing, spilling on the pool tables.
Known Aliases: None
Description: Behold, the Team sometimes known as Awesome. Many have gone by that name, but none return nearly as often as this team of cagey, red-eyed devils. Be warned: NEVER request “Call Me Maybe” within earshot.
Distinguishing Characteristics: Dungeons & Dragons, forensic sciences, chemistry.
Crimes: Witchcraft, attention to detail, telling off beers***s, minor racketeering
Known Aliases: Sick Assad World; Meth Heads Bobbing For Apples; Team Awesometitties

Distinguishing Characteristics: Enthusiastic vigor, scrupulous honesty, occasional fawning, shoelessness.
Crimes: Requesting s****y pop music, shaking the ground, Tyranny of the Majority
Known Aliases: Borderline Melancholy; Stay Borderline, Lehigh Valley; Color Me Epic
Description: Kirkman is back, after—oh, what is it—a three-year absence? They’ve all finished their probation, community service, and gunrunning now, however, so expect big things from these ruffians.
Distinguishing Characteristics: Relentless advocating for more sci-fi (Is that possible?); gentle difficulty with–yet dogged tenacity at–questions of baseball; a kind of unflagging cheerfulness
Crimes: Theft of plutonium, being Replicants, violating the Prime Directive.
Known Aliases: Kirkman Strikes Back; Kirkman: The First Avenger; Kirkman: The Winter Soldier
Description: Dyed-in-the-wool Trivia lovers, no matter what town they’re in, this family-oriented team typically gets here earliest and often leaves the latest. (That’s a compliment.) One day, they’ll take down their arch-nemesis (you know who you are.)
Distinguishing Characteristics: Knowledge of sports, classic rock, nursing. Sky-high tolerance
Crimes: Liver self-abuse, some envy.
Aliases: My Teammate Sucks
Description: A relatively recent, yet dedicated, cadre of fanatics. While we’ve yet to pinpoint which one is Dr. Mike and whither the Sheep, we do know this much: he’s a real doctor, not the evil kind. I’unno—physics, maybe?
Distinguishing Characteristics: Possibly too easy-going. Seriously, these guys need to start arguing with us more.
Crimes: Humorous t-shirts, criminal conversation, failure to get their girlfriends out for Trivia.
Known Aliases: Dr. Mike + the Electric Sheep featuring Capt. Mark and Nickelodeon Doug
Description: They’re a newer team, and as of this writing they’ve yet to place, but that hasn’t daunted this plucky trio who, well, obviously aren’t afraid to bring in reinforcements.

Crimes: Endangering couches, stacking empty glasses ludicrously high
Aliases: Thunder Muffins Strike Again
