S2: Battle of the Geeks - Trivia Night!

So we have two tables: The "Evil League of Evil" table, and the "Big Damn Meetup Group" table... choose yours wisely!

See you there at 6:30!

---

FYI - PayPal payment by Friday to secure your booking for this one! Just to clarify - payment to *me*, so I can book a group table. There should be a "PayPal" button on the page - if you can't find it, my email is [masked] - but make sure you include your MEETUP name, so I know who's paid.

Last year we one this thing! So the time to support the New Melbourne Browncoats in the their annual pre-CSTS fundraiser is upon us. $5 per person, and we need at least 10 before I'll book a table (Details here: http://www.newmelbournebrowncoats.com/2013/06/04/battle-of-the-geeks-ii/

BTW: Firefly cosplaying strongly encouraged :)

    The questions were way too hard and obscure for anyone but fanboys or fangirls, as the case may be, or for anyone not able to pay their way to victory. I usually have a good time at trivia nights, but not this time.

      Agreed. way way too obscure.

      Thanks Nigel.

    Yeah, I think the bribery system needs some work. Maybe a limit of 2-3 bribes per team or something. Questions were definitely a lot more obscure than last year.

    I quite enjoyed the trivia. The bit I found disappointing (and which I'll let them know) was that they didn't read out the answers at the end of each round. I realise that would have been extremely time consuming but the fun of trivia is going "Aaargh! that's what it was!"

    Great Night even though i didn't know any of the questions

      Most of us didn't!! Hardest trivia I have ever been to, I felt like I needed to hand over my geek card. That said we won a prize for the highest scoring team that didn't buy any answers. So I owe you a bag of lollies next time we see you :)

      Yeah was lots of fun! Glad to hear I wasnt the only one who was struggling. Some of those questions were intimidating to say the least

    Hi guys, my extras and I will be there around[masked] - sadly our babysitter can't be here early enough for us to make it for dinner but we will be there for trivia. Hope that's OK, look forward to meeting everyone.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
