It's a quiz. I have a quiz now. Quizzes are cool.
Allons-y, Geeks! After five decades, eleven (or twelve) actors, and dozens of companions, everyone’s favorite alien adventurer and the blue box that’s bigger on the inside are making their themed quiz debut! This fall Geeks Who Drink will present Don’t Blink: A Doctor Who Quiz, a one-night odyssey following the adventures of the last of the time lords. The quiz event will be on Saturday, November 16th (exactly one week before the big 50th anniversary special) in nearly twenty American cities.
Questions will cover Doctors Hartnell through Smith, but Whovians should anticipate material primarily covering the modern series (we’ll still mix in material from the classic shows). As always, Geeks Who Drink rules limit teams to a six player max, with a $5 admission fee for each player. While we can’t promise the quiz won’t go all wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey quizzy-whizzy on you, we can promise a cash prize for our winners (depending on turnout, but usually in the hundreds of dollars)! So if your team can tell the difference between Sontarans, Silurians and Slitheen, you’ll be well on your way to earning enough scratch to get that sonic screwdriver you’ve had your eye on.

Watch this list -- times may change depending on venue availability, plus we expect to announce events in other cities soon!
How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets? You don’t. Get to the quiz venue early (we recommend an hour minimum) with cash for your entry fee to ensure seating.
What should I do with the money if I win? Travel to the end of the universe. Or go out to a fancy dinner.
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.
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. Use our Facebook and Twitter to recruit. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always.
Can we play the quiz twice by traveling to another city? No. No. And no. First of all, that’d be impressive, because our themed quizzes are now always on one day (with the rarest of exceptions). Secondly, even if you figure out a way to cheat, don't do it.
Can minors play? That's entirely up to the venue. Check with them.
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.
Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play? No. Six people max seated at a table and all players must pay.
Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city? No. We host these at venues that meet certain criteria. So, if we're not in your city, there won't be a quiz. If we're in your city, and there's no quiz, we're sorry. Feel free to let us know if you think demand is there, and maybe next time we'll get it started.
Is there a prize for second place? Nope, this is winner take all. But second place is impressive; you should be proud.
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.
Will BLANK TOPIC be covered? Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.
Do I need to RSVP? Seating is first-come, first-served and there are no reservations. These things quite often sell out, so get there early to guarantee a seat.
