ThinkGeek! Geeky Pub Quiz

ATTENTION: THIS HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED DUE TO SNOW. THE NEW DATE IS NOW LISTED. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND DUE TO THE DATE CHANGE, CONTACT BROWN PAPER TICKETS AT [masked] OR CALL[masked]-3006. IF YOU PURCHASED YOUR TICKET THROUGH ME AND ARE NO LONGER ABLE TO ATTEND, CONTACT ME ASAP. NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN AFTER WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 26.

ThinkGeek is a popular nerdy super-store that happens to be LOCAL. They are big on community and are hosting a Geeky Pub Quiz night. There are almost definitely going to be Harry Potter questions, and how better to show off like Hermione in Potions class?

How this works:
ThinkGeek requires a team of 6-8 players. If we get more than 8, we can divide into multiple teams. If there aren't at least 6 people, we can't form a team, so if you RSVP, be sure you're going to show!

Tickets: Charge is $15 (plus a service fee online). Tickets sell out FAST so be sure to get your ticket if you are going! With the date change, there may be more available in the next few days. Check the website often!


We had 2 teams formed before the reschedule. Our names were "Nitwit Blubber Oddment Tweak" and "The Fizzing Whizbees". These may change due to numbers if people drop or add.

The Waitlist: I have figured out this system: As we currently have 12 people signed up (as of 2/12), that is enough to make 2 teams. If you are interested in going, please sign up on the wait list. If enough people join the waitlist to make another team, or just a few to add into the current teams, you will be added and notified. If not, you can purchase your ticket to attend the event, but may not be on a team with DADA people.

    I'm standing inside the door at the bar. Tell them you're part of the Nitwit Blubber Oddment Tweak team. See you son!

    Just to remind everyone, there is ONE WEEK LEFT to tell me if you aren't able to go and still get a refund. Otherwise, I will expect to see you there!

    February 19, 2014

  • Amy

    Michelle I should still be able to attend on March 12th date. Do you still want us to pay you at the event or would you prefer we pay you sooner as it is now a month away. Let me know.

    February 12, 2014

    • Michelle

      I am fine with either. If you want to send me a check in the mail so you don't forget, I'm fine with that and can send you my address.

  • Cindi

    This is being rescheduled. Don't have an exact date yet. So please check the email. It will also go over how to get a refund if you can't make the new night. Though maybe this is a good thing. Get 1 - 2 other people to go and have DADA teams! :)

      Thanks so much! Haven't received an official email yet, but will give that a read and let everyone know. Such a bummer!

    Please read this message from Think Geek regarding the weather. Hello there,

    All right... so which one of you has been doing Snow Dances? Was it you
    who brought Snowzilla upon us? If so, could you please have better timing?!

    Unless you've been living under a rock, you may be aware that Thursday
    is predicted to have oodles of snow (we've heard from 5-14 inches).
    We're still looking into it right now & discussing things with Jammin
    Java, in case something does happen. Who knows, there's a chance the
    forecast is wrong (surprise, surprise) & we won't get much! If it does
    look bad, then we'll look into rescheduling GTN, because we'd rather you
    & your teams not try to brave the snow. The safety of your geeky brains
    is important to us! Also, in case you're wondering, if it does get
    rescheduled & you happen to not be able to make the rescheduled date,
    worry not, we'll let Brown Paper Tickets know & you'll be able to refund
    your tickets (sadface).

    As of right now, still on!

      Thanks for keeping everyone up to date, Michelle!

    If you purchased your tickets separately, please list RODNEY as your group leader. Myself, Sally, and our friends are joining another group. You guys need to come up with a group name and hope the four of us don't beat you. :)

    February 7, 2014

    • An

      Okay thanks :) See you there

      February 10, 2014

  • An

    I got tickets but I just need to know if we've got our team(s) decided because I got an email from Think Geek asking for either the team name or team leader lol

    February 6, 2014

    • Michelle

      Rodney, those are great! Any chance you'd be interested in being a team leader?

      February 6, 2014

    • Michelle

      I talked with TG and they thought the original name might not be "family friendly" enough, so you guys are Nitwit Blubber Oddment Tweak. :)

      February 7, 2014

  • Michelle

    Okay guys, so here's the deal. We need at least 4 people to join another team. My friend Kathryn and I are happy to move if need be, but just to remind you that the maximum per team is 8 and the minimum is 6. Also, if we do join another team, we need someone else to take over as team leader. I need to know asap if anyone wants to volunteer as leader or to team up with another group.

    February 6, 2014

  • Cindi

    Glad you guys are going. I'll see you there!

    1 · January 22, 2014

  • Michelle

    I have ordered 9 tickets for everyone currently RSVP'd at noon on 1/21. Tickets are $16.52 each. I can take money when we get there, or we can discuss other methods before then privately. If anyone decides they would like to join us, please order your own tickets. We can make 2 teams if we get 3 more people in. Thanks everyone!

    • Amy

      Thanks for getting the tickets Michelle

      1 · January 21, 2014

  • Darcy

    Hey Michelle! I'm definitely coming. Are you getting a group rate on a bunch of tickets?

    January 21, 2014

    • Michelle

      No problem! We'll figure out teams as we get closer. :) Glad to have you!

      January 21, 2014

    • Darcy

      Yay! Can't wait!

    http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/563343 Here is the link for tickets, but as you see, if you are seeing this before 12, tickets are not available yet.

  • Amy

    I'm not that great at trivia but this is right down the street from where I work.

    January 20, 2014

    • Michelle

      How many tickets would you need?

      January 20, 2014

    • Amy

      I just need one ticket and will bring the money on the 13th. Thanks

      January 21, 2014

  • Sally S.

    A friend has confirmed she will join as well - a fellow HP and beyond geek - so I think we officially have enough to be a team!

    1 · January 20, 2014

    • Michelle

      Are you guys going to get tickets separately, or would you like me to get them together?

      January 20, 2014

    • Esther T.

      Michelle, I'm the friend Sally is bringing! : ) I can definitely pay you back if you get the tickets! Thank you so much!!!

      1 · January 20, 2014

  • Sally S.

    I'm very excited about this! :)

    1 · January 20, 2014

  • Michelle

    So, if we don't get the required number of people, we can still show. They will just add us onto other random people. New friends!

    January 19, 2014

  • delma

    Can people attend to watch and cheer?

    January 13, 2014

    • Michelle

      Unfortunately it doesn't seem so. There's limited space and it goes to teams rather than cheering squads. Join the team instead and root from within!

      January 13, 2014

    • delma

      Ahhh! Thanks, Michelle - I am afraid I would be much of an asset...

      January 15, 2014

  • rodney

    Yay, I can attend! Is it one ticket per team or one ticket per person attending?

    1 · January 14, 2014

    • Michelle

      I believe it's one per person.

      January 14, 2014

    • Cindi

      Hi, it is one ticket per person. Best for either one person to purchase them at once.

      1 · January 14, 2014

  • Michelle

    THERE WILL BE PRIZES.

    January 14, 2014

    • Cindi

      Yes yes.. prizes. Last time was Gift Certificates and other prizes to the top 3 teams.

      1 · January 14, 2014

  • rodney

    Has a location been announced? Does Michelle or anyone know where this will take place?

    January 14, 2014

    • Michelle

      The last few were held at jammin Java in Vienna. Not sure if it will be there again but will let you know when I do.

      January 14, 2014

    • Cindi

      Jammin' Java in Vienna.

      1 · January 14, 2014

  • Cindi

    Tickets go on sale 12pm ET Tuesday, January 21 on Brown Paper Tickets (link coming soon!). There is a limited amount, so if it's anything like the previous Trivia Nights, tickets will sell out FAST. We suggest you start recruiting and forming your team of 6-8 people now! Choose your teammates wisely because we'll ask about anything. From Game of Thrones to outer space to the meaning of Timmy.

    Also this will be at Jammin' Java.

    Not sure yet if I can make it; I'll check. But I have ordered online from ThinkGeek. Do they have an actual store, too, or is it just online? I couldn't find anything about it on the website.

    January 14, 2014

    • Michelle

      Just online, but they're big on the local geek scene. Super people. :)
