92Y Tribeca's Big Family Quiz Thing

While the city is full of quiz events for adults, finding one that's appropriate for younger trivia buffs can be a bit more challenging. That all changed this past weekend when the Big Quiz Thing hosted its first family event. Parents and kids flocked to 92YTribeca for the game show, hosted by TONY copy chief Noah Tarnow; topics included everything from geography and history to music and movies. Participants especially loved special multimedia rounds where they had to guess the name of a tune that had been slowed down or fill in the blank of a movie quote. (They also enjoyed deciding if a contestant got bonus points for a wrong but extra-funny answer!) After six rounds (including a lightning round), the teams with the top three scores were asked to send a kid and adult representive to the stage for the finale. Ten-year-old Alex and his dad (read more about Alex here) won first place and a whole bunch of prizes, including Broadway show tickets. Scroll through our slide show to see more from the day's event.
