Geeks Who Drink hosts pub quizzes at over 100 pubs and restaurants in 13 states including the Inland Empire at Killarney’s in Riverside every Wednesday at 7 p.m. and at Killarney’s in Temecula every Monday at 8 p.m.
The quiz is derived from the collective effort of dozens of quizmasters, writers, fact-checkers, graphic designers and artists.
If you’ve never been to a pub quiz, it’s a game played in a pub which began as an Anglo-Irish tradition. The goal remains the same: to foster friendly competition, and promote social drinking. A noble cause!
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. Sounds simple enough, eh?
