MILWAUKEE — Local business group Bars & Recreation has developed a new, at-home, online trivia game to connect locals with their friends and family.

The Milwaukee group, which operates Nine Below, AXE MKE, and North South Club, are calling it "Head Space Trivia," a live trivia and puzzle challenge game for groups of 5 to 50 players.

“Our core business is providing activities for friends, family, and colleagues to play together, so this is a natural extension of our brand. We believe Head Space Trivia has a place in the entertainment market beyond COVID-19, but it’s certainly perfect for the current situation," said Bars & Recreation owner Marla Poytinger.

The new game will host solo players and household teams for their public trivia rounds.

Each head space, which is the square each head occupies in a video chat, costs $9 but there is no limit to how many people can be involved in one head space. Meaning, if you want you whole family involved, you still only have to pay $9.

After each round, the winning team will get a game voucher for any future play.

There are also private games if you wish to just play with friends and family. For these games, head spaces costs between $6 and $13. According to Bars & Recreation, "private groups get their own live trivia host and may choose upgrades including custom questions."
