Thanks for checking out our Kickstarter campaign for the Everyday Q&A calendar! Our goal is to produce the best daily trivia calendar in the world. With that goal in mind, we had to ask ourselves - how do we define "best trivia calendar". The answer was immediately clear. It's the calendar with the highest quality trivia questions.
It sounds so simple but writing a high quality trivia question takes both skill and effort. That's something that both of us know from practice. Katie's experience with the Inkling (a competitive mail-based trivia competition) and Jonathan's experience with Trivial Warfare (the pub trivia podcast) means that we know our stuff - not just in terms of trivial knowledge, but also in terms of writing questions that are informational, entertaining, and likely to require some creative thinking.
With the Everyday Q&A calendar you can count on creative questions that are both well thought out and well researched. It doesn't matter if your favorite categories are pop culture & sports or geo-graphy & SCIENCE! We've got something here for you :-)
In addition to having the best trivia questions, we've worked with the best live trivia events around like Trivia Nationals and TriviaCon to get you discounts to these events worth more than the actual cost of the calendar. It's a win/win.
If you like the sound of this and want to see it become a reality, you know what to do. Sign up to support this Kickstarter. Get one for you, one for your friends...hell, get 5 of them and use them as white elephant gifts during the upcoming holiday season.
Thank You & Happy Quizzing!

Risks and challenges
We have done our best to be realistic about our risks and challenges with this project. Here’s what we’ve got to overcome.
1. It’s possible that we won’t meet our goal and the calendars will never get made.
This would be a shame, but it is a possibility. With their combined audiences both Jonathan and Katie have enough supporters to realistically meet the stated gold and get the project off the ground. To avoid overextending ourselves we are keeping the print run to a minimum. We’d rather sell everything we have than selling a few extra calendars but be stuck with a lot of paper that no one wants to buy.
2. Fulfillment is a challenge here. Risks include having enough time to fulfill the requests and being able to count on vendors to deliver what they have promised.
We’re avoiding the fulfillment trap all together. Rather than order the calendars in advance and shipping them manually we are working with companies that can pack and send the orders out directly to customers without inserting ourselves in the process. We’ve also avoided creating and sending extras to minimize any problems associated with this. The most important thing that we can do is deliver what we’re promising.
3. There’s the potential that the orders and delivery of calendars will be delayed.
We’re also starting this process as early as possible. The Kickstarter for this 2020 calendar will be over before the end of July and calendars will be ready to ship out early in Q4. We’re doing our best to be able to meet our delivery requirements even if there are delays in the process on the vendor side.
4. There’s the risk that either Jonathan or Katie will flake out and will leave the other person too much work to complete.
Nah, just kidding. Both Katie and Jonathan have a long track record of delivering great trivia products to players and listeners all over the globe. On top of that, both parties are committed to working together and creating something as a team that they can be proud of.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
