-Trivia Night at Capitol Garage-

-TRIVIA NIGHT-

Come out and join us for a fun night doing trivia.

Things to know:

• Start time is at 8:30pm, but should arrive at 8:00pm to get seats.

• Ends at 10:00pm approx.

• Trivia is hosted by Geeks Who Drink. This is the format:

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.

So put on your thinking caps, and let's compete with 10 to 12 other teams!! Lots of fun, and a great way to socialize while enjoying grub 'n drinks.
