Let’s get ready to rumble!

The 18th Annual YMCA Battle of the Brains - presented by C103 and New Country 96.9 - takes place Saturday, March 23, 2019 at 7 pm.!

Defending their 2018 title will be The Resurgonauts’—a team from the City of Moncton’s Resurgo Place—who took top spot  for the second year in a row.

Do you and your team have what it takes to defeat the champs? Join corporate, community and neighborhood teams for this annual FUNdraising evening of team trivia, great food and entertainment in support of a great cause! Proceeds from the event support the YMCA's ReConnect Street Intervention program.

What really happens at the event?

It’s this easy - and fun! Teams of 4 to 6 players collectively answer 10 rounds of trivia, consisting of 10 questions per round. Each question is assigned a certain number of points. A panel of judges scores each round and the team with the most points at the end of the night is crowned Battle of the Brains champions!

For those who are a little unsure of their answers during the event, you will have an opportunity to “bribe” the judges. The night of the event, simply purchase 1 bribe for $15 or 3 for $30  (each bribe equals 1 point).

And speaking of bribes…

Your team will have the opportunity to earn up to 3 EXTRA BRIBES per team! Additional funds raised ($100 to $300) above the required team registration fee will earn you 1 extra bribe per $100. Give your team that extra edge and fundraise!

Can our team dress up or wear team uniforms?

This is STRONGLY encouraged. Over the years, teams have shown up with costumes, team t-shirts and props! In 2013, we introduced the “Rock Star Award” sponsored by Pepsi, awarded to the team with best costumes and team spirit (as voted by teams at the event).

So don’t wait, register your team today.! Only 30 teams can enter so don’t miss out!
