Postseason Schedule

Playoff Bracket – Start

As a reminder, there are 3 levels of postseason play. The Playoffs include 20 players in a 1-on-1 bracket format and will determine the overall TCL champion. The Wild Card is a single game, the next 3 rounds and the 3rd place matchup are best of 3, and the championship is best of 5. The winner will receive the Trivia Crack Cup.

The Consolation Tournament starts with 18 players (9 from each league), and the bottom X number of players is eliminated each round until 1 player is left standing. The number of players per round are as follows: 18, 15, 12, 9, 6, 4, 3, 2.

The remaining 29 players in each league will play an 8-round challenge which will be scored by aggregate questions correct. Think of it as one large 96-question challenge, so the player with the most questions correct wins (with time as the tiebreaker). Rankings in the individual rounds don’t mean anything.

See below for the players that will participate in each level of the postseason.
