Geeks Who Drink
Who are you?
Geeks Who Drink is a Denver-based company that hosts pub quizzes at
over 100 pubs and restaurants in 13 states. Our quiz is a collective
effort of dozens of quizmasters, writers, fact-checkers, graphic
designers and artists.
What’s a pub quiz?
Simply, a quiz game played in a pub. It’s an Anglo-Irish tradition,
but our goal is 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
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
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.
