Tuesday Night Trivia is Back! 8pm hosted by Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes

Trivia is back for the summer time every Tuesday at 8pm and it’s free to play!  Hosted by Geeks Who Drink Pub Quizzes, our Tuesday Night Trivia features some great prizes as well as weekly food and drink specials.  Geeks Who Drink is a “Homegrown Pub Trivia Quiz.”

  • Quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television.
  • Each quiz has two audio rounds:  a “Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV.
  • Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you’re some kind of savant.
  • If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team.
  • Winning teams gets street cred, bar cash and other prizes.
  • Bonus Questions for free pints are sprinkled throughout the quiz.
  • You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final friggin’ Jeopardy.

Trivia FAQ:

Does it cost anything?

Nope!

Do I need to sign up beforehand or can I just show up and play?

Just show up. Team size is limited to six. Play solo if you’d like or larger groups can split up into two teams.

All right, so what’s in it for me?

Besides a couple hours of free entertainment, the top  teams get bar gift certificates. Plus there are chances to win free pints (or gift-certificate equivalents) for answering five bonus questions throughout the evening. We also have bizarre prizes courtesy of our weekly Bonus Email Question. Finally, your team can revel in the eternal glory of having your photo posted on the Geeks Who Drink Website and our Geeks Who Drink at The Ogden Facebook page.

Is the quiz hard?

In general, the quiz starts off easy and progresses in difficulty as the night goes on. Also, the quiz is set up to reward the most versatile teams. Most folks over 35 will be stumped on questions about the Xbox 360, while most folks under 35 know little about the Reagan years. And just about everyone is stumped when we throw in a round on country music.

What’s the quiz format like?

The quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions each, played by teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster and teams write down the answers, turning them in at the end of each round.

Rounds 1,  4 and 6 are themed rounds – anything from “Eight Questions About Sex That Won’t Make You Too Uncomfortable” to “TV Shows Your Parents Watch.” Round 2 is a music round worth double points: name the artist and title for each song clip. Round 3 is a multiple choice round or a speed round. Round 5 is a visual round based on a printed handout. The all-audio Round 7 usually covers movies or TV shows, and is worth the standard eight points. Finally, Round 8 is always 16 points on Random Knowledge.

One round can be jokered, doubling your points for that round only (yes, the 16-point rounds are fair game). The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.
