CultureQuest®
CultureQuest<sup>®</sup> for fame and glory

While CultureQuest® might be considered a trivia game or competition, its intent has always been to promote and test cultural literacy. Mensan teams of up to five members gather in their neighborhoods on a single day across the U.S. and Canada and compete for cash prizes and bragging rights.

Regional Gatherings
Enjoy our Regional Gatherings

Each weekend-long Regional Gathering, or RG, usually features speakers; games; a Hospitality room with food, beverages and lots of socializing; and often a little something special, a signature program or activity that the hosting local group injects into the event to make it their own.
