Sheepoll's Opinion TriviaSheepoll’s Opinion Trivia is the only trivia night in the world with no facts.

“WHAAAT?!”, I hear you say. “No facts?”

Yep. It’s the fake news of trivia nights, where winning is a matter of opinion, and you get to find out how average you actually are. Are you a unique Black Sheep or a run-of-the-mill White Sheep? We’ll find out together in a hilarious 2-hour interactive experience that is part-gameshow, part-improv comedy and part-a-whole-lotta-fun.

Normal trivia so boring! There’s way too much of:
What’s the capital of Vanuatu? (errrrm)
What’s Whoopi Goldberg’s real name? (jeez um)
