Do you keep a seven-leaf clover for good luck? Is technically correct, the best kind of correct in your opinion? Do you play for the glory of the Hypnotoad? Well, Good News, Everyone: A Futurama Quiz is coming to a city near you on June 22nd. Gather your crew and look to score big at our first Futurama quiz in nearly 10 years.
The quiz will cover all 7 seasons of the show including the three direct-to-video movies that later became season 5. While we won't ask you a significant number of questions about the comics, video game or other spin-offs, we continue to reserve the right to ask you about anything and everything Futurama related in round eight.
The quiz is $5 per player and the winners will take home a cash prize large enough to host their own Futurama quiz with blackjack and hookers. Invite everyone you know, even Zoidberg. The more players, the larger the cash pot. Otherwise general Geeks Who Drink rules apply. You’re limited to 6 total players on your team and use of eyePhones and other extra-cranial devices is prohibited.
Registration for this quiz is REQUIRED! Head on over to http://bit.ly/GWDFuturamaReg to register your team.
THEMED QUIZ FAQs
Can people under 21 play?
Yes! We are all-ages brewery.
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?
Head on over to http://bit.ly/GWDFuturamaReg to get your team registered. Please remember registrations are NOT a reservation of seating, but it will help us ensure that we have ample space for all our teams. Our theme quizzes tend to 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 walk-up space will be available at some venues 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 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 another reminder as well.
My city says "Sold Out"! Now what?
You can still register for the event for a stand-by spot if your city is still a drop-down option! If there's sufficient interest, or a team drops out, we'll let you know! We make no promises that you'll be able to get in, but if we can make it happen, you'll be the first to know.
When will "Stand-by" teams know if they have a spot?
That depends on a lot of factors, but we'll let you know as soon as we can. The latest you'll know is 24 hours before the event.
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 disqualified.
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.
Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city?
Probably not, but register under "Other" for us. If we do bring the quiz to you at a later date, we'll let you know via email.
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.
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.
