Rumble in the Pub is back! It's been a calendar year since we last challenged you to enter the ring against your fellow eggheads, so pull your gloves on, Rock, and get ready. This year we're getting down to business by shortening and simplifying things a bit. We're also adding a few more regions and a $2,400 grand prize to our invitational throwdown. Teams will spend four weeks waging war in the qualifying period, leading up to a Final Rumble in each region. This year's Finals will take place in Denver, Seattle, Austin, Houston, D/FW, Chicago, Boston, Portland, Albuquerque, Kansas City and Los Angeles.

At the Final Rumble you’ll compete not only for the regional pot* but a chance at some national prizes for the overall Rumble in the Pub winners. How do you get a Final Rumble invite for your team? Well, that’s where the fun comes in. If you want to eat lightnin' and crap thunder, read closely below.

*That's a pot of cash, Denver and Seattle. Calm down.

Registration

Registration is open now, so head to this page and get your team set up. Registration is now closed. Lazies.

You’ll use the same team name every week, so pick something you can live with for a month's worth of quizzes. See our PAQ below for a few guidelines. If you played in the last Rumble, feel free to keep the torch going for that team name. Click here to download and print our handy registration cards to give to your Quizmaster so you don't forget to provide your registration number.

Once you’ve registered, you’ll receive an email confirmation. Any problems? Email quizbot@geekswhodrink.com.

Qualifying

Between Monday, August 4 and Sunday, August 31 your team will qualify for your region's Final Rumble via a point system. Winning 1st place at a quiz gets you three points, 2nd place gets you two, and 3rd gets you one. 4th through last? No points, try again tomorrow.

The top 30 teams (by points) in each region are automatically invited to their region's Final Rumble. Spots beyond that will depend on team availability, venue space and who gives the best back rubs. There’s incentive to rack up those points - we’ll reward the top ranked team in each Rumble region with a $100 gift card to the Geeks Who Drink venue of their choice, even if they win nothing at the Final Rumble.

Note: You can play ANY day of the week at ANY venue you like, ANYwhere in the Geeks network during the qualifying period, not just in the cities that are hosting the Final Rumble. Vacationing in another Geeks market? Great! Rack up some points on your downtime.

Final Rumble

The Final Rumble will be an event to separate the heavyweights from the glass jaws. Saturday, September 6 (don't worry, that's the weekend after Labor Day) in Denver, Seattle, Austin, Houston, D/FW, Chicago, Boston, Portland, Albuquerque, Kansas City and Los Angeles. Tickets will be $30 per team and you’ll pay for them ahead of time via PayPal (we’ll send you the link if you qualify).

Prizes

As noted above, the team in each region with the most Rumble points at the end of our qualifying period will win $100, in gift card form, to the Geeks Who Drink venue of their choice. Final Rumbles will work much the same way that our themed quizzes do: The winning team of each regional final will get a cash pot based on the number of entries. On top of that, we'll give $2,400 to the team with the highest Final Rumble score nationwide. Finally, the team with the most Rumble check-ins nationwide gets $600, because we're that impressed with your ability to show up.

RUMBLE IN THE PUB III (ALMOST) FINAL STANDINGS

Score-O-Matt-ic 9001 Series Quizbot here! The Rumble in the Pub III qualifying period is over! For some of you, this is only the beginning. For the rest? You fought well. Some DAMN close races in some of the regions, and a TIE in Boston (for now)!

Below are the (almost final) standings for each region. These are almost final because they are pending any missing or incorrect Rumble codes (see below).

The Numbertron 7064n RumbleBot has compiled these one final time before I decommissioned him until the next Rumble. He's due for a patch or two, anyway. Since the Rumble qualifying period is over, you only need to e-mail me if the following apply to you:

- Your team IS NOT listed and you think it should be. Only the top 30 qualifying teams are listed in each region (with any ties for 30th).
- Your team would have WON THE REGION but we missed some points. ASAP on that one!
- For Check-Ins (below) you played EVERY RUMBLE NIGHT and we don't have you listed (that's 21 nights, kids!).

As always, alert me via electronic message at quizbot@geekswhodrink.com (with DETAILS) if any of the above scenarios apply to you. If not, don't worry. If you're listed you'll be invited. See below the standings for an FAQ.

FAQ

- If your team isn't listed, you may still get an invite to the Final Rumble on Saturday. We'll e-mail you if we have an opening.
- If your team isn't listed, and it SHOULD BE, then why haven't you e-mailed me yet at quizbot@geekswhodrink.com?!
- If your team IS listed, then (Team Captains) check your e-mail today and tomorrow for the info! FYI: Spam filters love to gobble our e-mail.
- If your team won a region, we'll be in touch with you, and congrats!
- If you THINK your team should have won a region, you need to be in touch with ME ASAP.

Did I miss anything? You know what to do. Thanks to everyone who participated in Rumble in the Pub III! We'll post results of this Saturday's Final Rumble in next Monday's Geek in Review.

Keep Calm and Quiz ON! Good luck in the final RUMBLE!

 

PAQs: Probably Asked Questions

I’m not getting emails from you guys. This is important. We’re going to email you from time to time, and some of them will be about things like PayPal, which sound awfully spammy to email providers. Please add quizbot@geekswhodrink.com and kavi@geekswhodrink.com to your whitelist, okay?

How are teams defined in the Rumble? The usual teams of six, except a team will have two team “captains” who are our go-to contacts. Team members may rotate for any reason, but at least one of the two captains must be present. However, each team may only earn points at one quiz per night, so no splitting your team captains to double up.

How will team names work? Save your quips for Twitter because we’re making you keep the same team name throughout the Rumble. You’ll probably want to avoid overused teams names or pop-culture references, to be safe. Plus, if you’re referencing The Big Lebowski, Anchorman or especially Super Troopers, odds are it's been done and it's being done, right now, somewhere else in this tournament. Be creative!

Where will my region's Final Rumble be held? We'll know that soon. Watch this space and our Facebook event, where you should have already RSVPed, for that info.

What happens if fewer than 30 teams register for my region's Final Rumble? No big deal. If only 20 teams register in a given region, we'll invite all 20 teams to the finals. Any region that doesn't get enough registrations for a Final Rumble to be worth our time (and yours) will be canceled, but we don't want that, do we? In the event that a Final Rumble is canceled, the top team in the region will still win a $100 gift card.

So, it's way easier to qualify if I play at a venue with fewer teams than at the more competitive venues with lots of teams? That's not really a question, but yes, you can totally qualify this way.

Do I have to put my Rumble Code on every answer sheet I turn in? Technically, no. As long as the Quizmaster knows you are you, and your code gets uploaded to our blog at the end of quiz, then all is well.  

Will this get me in to Geek Bowl? This has nothing to do with Geek Bowl, but you might want to look at it as a warmup exercise if you’re considering making the trip to Albuquerque in 2015.

What about video rounds, 104 pt. quizzes, lunar eclipses and stock market crashes? I’m scared and confused. Chillax. It’s not a perfect system, but it’s the best we got.  

But we weren't planning on playing that night! You're getting closer to figuring out our fiendish plan.

Can I have your number? No. Well... maybe.
