Covid-19 Preventative Measures at Family Feud Trivia Games & Guidelines for Participation

The CDC and IDPH are regularly updating their guidelines. We will stay current with them and update these as necessary. Our #1 priority is to keep our players and staff safe. We will fully enforce all required mandates as they are announced and those who do not follow these guidelines will be removed from the league without refund.


Effective in Chicago on January 3, 2022, any individual age 5 and older will be required to show proof of vaccination to dine or drink indoors, visit gyms, or enjoy entertainment venues where food or drink are being served. Our trivia league host bar falls into this category of qualifying businesses. Therefore, until this city mandate is lifted all participants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend this league. You can read the full details here.

– The host bar for this league is strictly following all city and state health guidelines to keep everyone safe. They can provide plenty of space between team tables and will be cleaning and disinfecting everything right before we arrive each night.

– Masks must be worn when entering and leaving the bar, using the restroom, or whenever you are not at your table. Bandanas, neck gaiters, balaclavas or masks with valves are not allowed as they have been proven not to provide sufficient protection to you and others. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask while at your table, we encourage you to do so.


This list includes important safety precautions and guidelines that we and our players must follow at games. We need EVERY registered participant to read this in its entirety so we’re all on the same page before attending. First you will see bullet points that provide a brief outline of each item.

  • First and most importantly, if any player is feeling generally unwell or experiencing Covid-19 symptoms as defined by the CDC here, YOU MUST STAY HOME AND NOT ATTEND THE GAME AT ALL.

If you have a player during a game that had not signed the waiver, your team will forfeit that day. You can sign the league waivers here.

We are living in a different time right now where all players MUST play with integrity and be understanding of each other and the situation.
