• What we'll do
Join us at MacLeod Ale Brewing Company on Sunday April 28th for a trivia night to end all games. A $10 suggested donation to play trivia will cover a cash prize and proceeds will be donated to Adopt Me Rescue to pull and vet small and senior dogs from Los Angeles shelters. Adopt Me Rescue holds adoption events at Petco on Saturdays in Woodland Hills and in Glendale.
Geeks Who Drink's 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.
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.
One round can be jokered, doubling your points for that round only (yes, the 16-point rounds are fair game). The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.
