What happens when you put nine crazy characters in a giant tic-tac-toe board and try and get them to answer trivia questions? Chaos, pure chaos. Host Allie Vollmer does her best to reign in the madness every week, plus we are joined by two contestants who must navigate if the comedians are telling the truth or are full of pure nonsense - you’d be surprised how often they are actually right! New characters every week, new trivia, new laughs - if you loved a particularly similar game show from the ’80s and ’90s then you’ll love CSZN Squares.

From the movie-obsessed minds of Jesse Gomez and Miguel Lepe Jr, comes this hilariously simple premise for a movie trivia show. Two contestants face off every week to answer movie trivia, but it’s not normal trivia, no-no. Each contestant will get three clues - a person from the movie, a place from within the movie, and a ‘thing’ that is in the movie. Rounds get harder and harder, friends will be called, the audience will be polled, minds will be blown.
