HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – BRAIN STORM!, a team trivia game show based entirely on African American trivia, is coming to Marshall University’s Huntington campus on Tuesday, Feb. 28.
The production, presented to Marshall by Simplified Entertainment of New York, begins at 7 p.m. in room BE5 of the Memorial Student Center. It is sponsored by Marshall’s Center for African American Students’ Programs and helps promote February as African American History Month.
During the trivia game show, the entire audience plays at the same time. A 10-foot video screen displays the questions for all to see. A flashy stage display with an energetic host keeps the action going while the audience uses remote control handsets.
Participants “brainstorm” it out for the best answer. Categories include politics, medicine, drama, television, music, sports and others. Students and community groups are encouraged to form their own teams of four to eight participants.
Church groups, friendship groups, clubs, fraternities, sororities, class groups, student organizations and residence halls are examples of possible participants. It is free to play, and the winning teams receive cash prizes.
For more information, persons visit the Center for African American Students’ Programs in room 1W25 of the Memorial Student Center or call Director Maurice Cooley at 304-696-5430.
