The Armed Forces Trivia Quest represents a unique entertainment experience for our soldiers and their families that we hope will only grow in scope and impact for many years to come.

This summer, Army Entertainment, a program of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command, in partnership with the Super 8® hotel brand, will launch Super 8’s Armed Forces Trivia Quest — a live, multi-city tour visiting 16 active-duty military bases across America.

Awarding over $150,000 in prizes, the tour will kick-off July 11, 2016 at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Fort Myer, Virginia, and conclude on October 8, 2016 at Joint Base San Antonio in San Antonio.

“The Armed Forces Trivia Quest represents a unique entertainment experience for our soldiers and their families that we hope will only grow in scope and impact for many years to come,” said Josh Gwinn, Division Chief, Installation Management Command.

Created by Iconic Media Group, the Super 8 Armed Forces Trivia Quest is a live, interactive game show experience that engages the entire audience in a series of multiple-choice trivia questions comprised of popular culture, history, sports and other general topics. Using provided hand-held response devices, players are awarded points based on their speed in correctly answering each question. The top four players with the highest scores from the “audience response” segment advance to the Finale, where the player with the highest score is crowned Champion.

Steve Sellery, CEO of Iconic Media Group stated, “We created this interactive experience to salute and entertain those serving our nation. It’s an honor to collaborate with Super 8 and Army Entertainment to make this possible. I look forward to bringing this interactive event to bases across the country and around the world well into the future.”

Staged on active-duty military bases, Super 8’s Armed Forces Trivia Quest is a free event open to Department of Defense Cardholders 18 years of age and older. Each live event will award a wide offering of prizes, including multiple drawings for audience members and a Grand Prize for each Finale winner.
