Although bars and pubs remained closed, people are still able to join virtual pub quiz events online for entertainment and a sense of community. When Jay Flynn's pub closed as a result of COVID-19, Jay’s Virtual Pub Quiz was created online and quickly became a sensation.
Hasbro Gaming teamed up with Jay’s Virtual Pub Quiz for a a special kids versus adults Trivial Pursuit Family edition themed round where players had the chance to win a game of their own. In early June, over 213,000 players participated, joining in remotely from their living rooms. The virtual quiz is also being used to bring awareness to youth charity The Diana Award and its work on anti-bullying.
While people still can't participate in in-person pub nights, online events offer plenty of fun that can be had from home.
