Do you know all the lyrics to Smelly Cat? Have you actually purchased an album by the Rembrandts? Do you have sudden, inexplicable cravings for salmon skin rolls? If so, our next theme quiz will be there for you. On Tuesday June 19, we’re paying each of the cast members a million dollars and bringing you The One Where Poor People Live Comfortably in Manhattan: A Friends Quiz!
The quiz will cover all ten seasons of the show, so call in sick from your job, doing whatever it is that you do, and have a marathon. The entire show is on Netflix right now.
Admission is $5 per person, and your pet monkey totally counts as a player. Per the usual Geeks Who Drink rules, your team is limited to 6 total players and cheaters will be forced to watch Ugly Naked Guy perform an interpretative dance number. Keep those phones tucked away! The more quizzers we have, the bigger the prizes, so call up everyone you know. Yes. Even Janice.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs
Can people under 21 play?
Yes, but we will be going to 9:30 so let’s not keep the little ones up too late.
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, if space permits, walk-up spots will be available on a first come, first serve basis.
Will I get some sort of email confirmation?
You and your alternate captain should receive an automated email after submitting your registration and, as long, as that email doesn’t indicate that you’re on stand-by, you should plan to be at the quiz. The week of the quiz, we’ll shoot you a reminder about the quiz as well.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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.
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 email@example.com and we’ll see about making that happen.
