The trivia game that is at the bars is pretty cool. It is made by NTN and they have a website http://www.buzztime.com/ where you can play the bar game live. I dont really know, but I have alwayst thought you could just somehow link to each of their games in mythbrowser. It is a java applet that lets you play the game, only thing is it requires a mouse as far as I can tell.... It is also free, and has more trivia than I can handle.

Probably the easiest way to find a decent list of suitable trivia
questions would be via the irc quiz bots that have literally thousands
of daft questions to ask. Many of these are released as open source.
A google with various combinations of "quiz infobot trivia questions
irc" might be productive.
