Let the Wookiee Win: A Star Wars Quiz
One night only.
Thursday, May 4th at select Geeks Who Drink venues.
Find teammates and talk smack on the Facebook event!
Are you one with the force? Is the force one with you? Does your partner still hate you for insisting on answering "I know" every time they tell you that they love you? Then join us on May 4th, as Geeks Who Drink returns to a galaxy far, far away for our third iteration of Let the Wookiee Win: A Star Wars Quiz.
Listen up, because we’re going to kill a TON of Bothans to bring you this quiz. Our questions will cover the five, good theatrical Star Wars films and (pretty much) only those movies. That means you can expect a healthy dose of Episodes IV through VII and Rogue One and just a smattering of Extended Universe references to seperate the contenders from the pretenders. Study like a thorough padawan; they may never say the names of those bounty hunters Vader sends after the Millenium Falcon, but we consider that fair game.
So dust off those laserdiscs, consult your Wookieepedia, and start recruiting. Geeks Who Drink rules limit teams to a six player max, so choose wisely. We charge a $5 admission fee for each player, and the more players, the bigger the pot. Prizes are usually expected to be in the hundreds of dollars -- the more players, the bigger the pot of credits, so invite your friends. You can register your team in advance (http://bit.ly/ThemeQuizReg) and if you don't see your city below, please select other from this list and we'll add more cities based on demand.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs
Can people under 21 play?
It’s up to the bar, and each venue’s going to be a little different. Check with them directly before you make any plans.
Should I wear a costume?
YES! Some of our venues may have a costume contest if there's enough participation, but that's up to the venue and host.
How do you sign up? Where do you buy tickets?
You can register your team by filling out this form (http://bit.ly/ThemeQuizReg). This is NOT a reservation of seating, but it will ensure that we have ample space for all our teams. We anticipate our theme quizzes will sell out and we will turn away teams that did not pre-register.
How do you change your team name, number of players on the team or cancel a registration?
After you've registered, you can make changes to it by emailing us a email@example.com.
The quiz is sold out? What do I do now?
You can still register for the event for a stand-by spot! If there's sufficient interest, or a team drops out, we'll let you know! We make no promises that you'll be able to get in, but if we can make it happen, you'll be the first to know.
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. If a team member is going to be late, we won't ask you pay in advance, but if they fail to pay on arrival, your team will be DQ'd.
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. We're happy to help you find teammates in advance on social media or on the day of. Team maximum is strictly six players, as always. Everyone sitting with you is considered part of your team.
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 and the people they make love to.
Can my dad/girlfriend/friend sit at our table and not play?
No. Six people max on a team and all players must pay. If they're sitting with you and not playing, we're going to ask that they move.
Can you host this at BLANK bar in BLANK city?
Probably not. You can register for the quiz under "Other" and if we see a lot of interest, we'll look into adding the quiz or bringing it to you sometime in the future.
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. If the pot is sufficiently large, we'll split it between first and second or first, second and third place.
Will BLANK TOPIC be covered?
Everything is fair game. Study hard. Apply yourself. And we never give clues.
How long will the quiz last?
Our regular quizzes run about 1.5-2 hours, but themed quizzes require a bit more heavy lifting in terms of logistics, scoring and extra stuff we may have planned. Average is about 3 hours.
I'd like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes.
Great! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see about making that happen.
