And now the story of a wealthy family whose future was abruptly canceled, and the one quiz company who had no choice but to hope there'd be a fourth season worth of material to ask about.
It’s Geeks Who Drink’s ‘Arrested Development’... quiz.
This July Geeks Who Drink is delving back into the world of the Bluths in the wake of the highly anticipated Netflix-supplied fourth season.
Sure, you may have napped during the George Sr. parts, but by now most ‘Arrested Development’ geeks already know how many episodes featured an ostrich, which characters played The Thing in Tobias' Fantastic Four musical, and the names of the three woodblock apps on the iTunes store. This is your team’s chance to show off and win a cash prize of anywhere between $200 and $500!
LEGAL NOTE: In some jurisdictions “cash prize” may be awarded in the form of Babytock devices.
The quiz won't be entirely Season 4, though. We'll have plenty of questions from the first three seasons, so get ready for your second (or third) rewatch of the year. Also, we're not just tooting our own horn when we say this was the most popular quiz event of last year, but this was the most popular quiz event of last year with thousands of attendees across the country. You don't need to camp out or anything crazy, but plan to get there at least an hour or so ahead of time so that you don't miss out on all the cornholing action.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs
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, our themed quizzes are now on Saturdays (with the rarest of exceptions). Secondly, even if you figure out a way to cheat, don't do it. We will catch you. Again, the answer is no. We had a team who did this once, and they are cheaters. Read their story here. No, we're never going to let it go, thanks for asking.
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. 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.
