ST. CLOUD — One of the world’s largest trivia contests in set to kick off this weekend, as St. Cloud State will hold its 36th annual Trivia Weekend.

Hundreds of volunteers – ranging from students, to alumni, to members of the community – will volunteer over the course of the competition that has nearly 60 teams from all over the world participating for 50 consecutive hours in the event.

Trivia Weekend features a different theme every year and this year’s is “Game of Trivia” – a parody of the HBO series “Game of Thrones” and a theme that Jo McMullen-Boyer believes was a huge draw this year.
