Are you one with the force? Is the force one with you? Does your partner still hate you for insisting on answering “I know” every time they tell you that they love you? Then join us on January 15th, as Geeks Who Drink returns to a galaxy far, far away with Let the Wookiee Win: A Star Wars Quiz.
Listen up, because we’re going to kill a TON of Bothans to bring you this quiz. Our questions will cover the six, good theatrical Star Wars films and (pretty much) only those movies. That means you can expect a healthy dose of Episodes IV through VIII and Rogue One and just a smattering of Expanded Universe references to separate the contenders from the pretenders. No we’re not asking any questions about Solo since nobody saw it. Study like a thorough padawan; they may never say the names of those bounty hunters Vader sends after the Millenium Falcon, but we consider that fair game.
So dust off those laserdiscs, consult your Wookieepedia, and start recruiting. Geeks Who Drink rules limit teams to a six player max, so choose wisely. We charge a $5 admission fee for each player, and the more players, the bigger the pot. Prizes are usually expected to be in the hundreds of dollars — the more players, the bigger the pot of credits, so invite your friends.
THEMED QUIZ FAQs
Can people under 21 play?
Unfortunately not. All team members must be over 21.
What if I don’t like beer?
We rarely encounter patrons that we can’t find a beer that they love. Let our beertenders guide you through our menu and find a brew that works for you.
That said; if beer really isn’t your thing and you are not willing to taste our offerings, then this probably isn’t the event for you…we are a brewery after all.
Obviously we encourage responsible drinking and the use of a designated driver to ensure everyone’s safety.
It should be noted that we can only legally serve beer that is made on premise. Outside alcoholic beverages will not be tolerated in any form. If discovered, the entire team will be asked to leave immediately.
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.
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.
