Only two days remain to cram in some last-minute trivia revision.

The debut ME Quiz is now just days away, so what better way to start preparing for the big night than by checking out our daily nuggets of useless trivia?

Setting the scene for the inaugural event is London’s Sway Bar, which will welcome 20 teams to battle it out over eight rounds of themed questions - sport, music, film, TV, celebrities, nature, general knowledge and, of course, mobile - on Wednesday, March 27th.

Among those confirmed to compete are GREE, Gameloft, comScore, Velti, Amobee, Adfonic, Telefonica O2 UK, Supersonic Ads, Mojiva, MACH, Brands2Life and Bango, to name but a few.

Mobile Entertainment will be providing food and drink throughout the quiz, while host Tim Green will guide the evening’s festivities.

Availability is now extremely limited, so don’t miss your chance to get involved.

Entry for the ME Quiz costs £349 + VAT per team of five.
