How cool is that! Trivia group! For YEARS, I did a nightly trivia quiz on one of my radio shows . . . I'd love to play you sometime!
I think with any kind of gambling, peeps are too focused on winning to be terribly social or talk business. I know when I am playing, don't even TALK to me! 
As far as social groups . . . man. I get referrals from folks I didn't even know KNEW me. And I am pretty antisocial! LOL!

Coming close to getting one through a K9 scent detection class I'm in.  Also hiking groups work well (I came close on one of them, had better luck scoring a date though).

I get a lot of business through my Church, and ranching activities. When I was roping a lot more I got a few leads from that. I do what I enjoy and when people ask what I do I say real estate. This leads to a lot of business for me.

Is the trivia event held in a restaurant bar or in the members' homes? 

I have gotten good deals from a grassroots networking group. 

And, so far, lots of leads but a few closings in a real estate investment group.

I compose in Word and then copy/paste to AR. Then edit AR so it comes out right. Then add photos. Probably a better way to do it but I have not invested the time to experiment.
