Do you keep a spare Cosmic Cube for guests? Are you currently wearing Black Panther Underoos? Are you Groot? If so, our next theme quiz demands that you assemble. To celebrate to coming of Infinity War, and the billion dollars that Black Panther raked in at the box office, we're bringing back Awesome Mix, our Marvel theme quiz on April 21st!
The vast majority of our quiz will cover the Marvel Cinematic Universe. True Believers know that means the 18 feature length films released thus far by Marvel Studios. As always though, we reserve the right to ask a smattering of questions about the associated TV shows, short films and, basically, anything else that carries the Marvel name. It's probably not worth your time to study the newest season of Jessica Jones or to re-read Planet Hulk, but don't be surprised if we ask a question about them.
Admission is $5 per person and the winners will take home a pile of cash that'd make Tony Stark blush. General Geeks Who Drink rules also apply. Your team is limited to 6 Avengers and the use of cell-phones or A.I. systems is strictly prohibited. You might want to come prepared with more than one team name as well. You're not the only ones trying to make a "Wakanda" pun.
Your team is required to register for this quiz! Get that done at http://bit.ly/TQRegistration!
THEMED QUIZ FAQs
Can people under 21 play?
It’s up to the bar, and each venue’s going to be a little diff erent. Check with them directly before you make any plans.
Should I wear a costume?
YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.
How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets?
You can register your team by filling out this form. This is NOT a reservation of seating, but it will help us ensure that we have ample space for all our teams. We anticipate our theme quizzes will fill up quickly and we will turn away teams that did not pre-register. You will not purchase tickets in advance, simply pay the $5 per player entry fee in cash when you arrive at the quiz. Registrations will close 24 hours before the quiz and walk-up space will be available at some venues on a first come, first serve basis.
My city says "Sold Out"! Now what?
You can still register for the event for a stand-by spot if your city is still a drop-down option! If there's sufficient interest, or a team drops out, we'll let you know! We make no promises that you'll be able to get in, but if we can make it happen, you'll be the first to know.
When will "Stand-by" teams know if they have a spot?
That depends on a lot of factors, but we'll let you know as soon as we can. The latest you'll know is 24 hours before the event.
How do you change your team name, number of players on the team or cancel a registration?
After you've registered, you can make changes to it by emailing us at email@example.com. You can also change your team name when you arrive at the quiz.
Is this a free quiz?
No, it's $5 per person to play (bring cash!), and we'll ask you to pay for everyone on your team before we give you quiz materials. If a team member is going to be late, we won't ask you pay in advance, but if they fail to pay on arrival, your team will be DQ'd.
What's the maximum/minimum players per team?
There is no minimum, but if you want to win, you should have a fully staffed squad. We're happy to help you find teammates in advance on social media or on the day of. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always. Everyone sitting with you is considered part of your team.
Do spectators have to pay?
Yes. Yes, they do. Spectators generally have to pay for sporting events, right? This also goes for Geeks Who Drink employees that aren't working at the event and the people they make love to.
Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play?
No. Six people max on a team and all players must pay. If they're sitting with you and not playing, we're going to ask that they move.
Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city?
Probably not, but register under "Other" for us. If we do bring the quiz to you at a later date, we'll let you know via email.
How is the prize amount determined?
In most cases, the prize amount is 50% of the total take. Why not 100%? Because we have to cover our costs of producing and marketing these event quizzes. If the pot is sufficiently large, we'll split it between first and second or first, second and third place.
Will BLANK TOPIC be covered?
Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.
How long will the quiz last?
Our regular quizzes run about 2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 2 1/2 hours.
I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes.
Great! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see about making that happen.
