What is Scholar's Bowl?
Scholar's Bowl is a game in which two teams compete head-to-head to answer questions from all areas of knowledge, including history, literature, science, fine arts, current events, popular culture, sports, mythology, religion, and more.
Team members "buzz-in" while a question is being read to interrupt the reader and give an answer. Each team can only buzz-in once per question.
This adds in an element of confidence, anticipation, and rapid recall to a game about knowing facts.
