What is Geeks Who Drink?
Geeks Who Drink is a Denver-based company that hosts Bar Trivia at over 600 pubs and restaurants in 35 states. The quiz is a collective effort of dozens of quizmasters, writers, fact-checkers, graphic designers and artists.
Isn't this just boring Triva?
No, and no. Most so-called “trivia nights” consist of either an MP3J reading Trivial Pursuit cards in between bad music, or a bunch of people staring at TVs with buzzers in hand. Our quiz burns through nearly 70 multimedia questions in two exciting hours. The quizmaster gets to know the players, and smack talk flying around in all directions is pretty much par for the course.
Does it cost anything?
No, its paid for by the Lost Borough. You should buy some brews though to wet your wistle and help with the cost.
Do I need to sign up beforehand or can I just show up and play?
Besides a couple hours of free entertainment, the top teams get brewery gift certificates. Plus there are chances to win free pints 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.
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.
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. The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.
