A Friends Quiz

Geeks Who Drink and Dry Ground Brewing Company present “The One Where Poor People Live Comfortably in Manhattan: A Friends Quiz” on Saturday, July 20th.

Are you an expert in the art of Unagi? Do you refuse to share food? Is your favorite Elton John song that one about Tony Danza? Come find your lobster at the 4th edition of “The One Where Poor People Live Comfortably in Manhattan: A Friends Quiz” on Saturday, July 20th.

The quiz will cover all ten seasons and 236 episodes about the lives of the Central Perk’s best customers. While we won’t ask you a significant number of questions about the actors’ side projects, spinoffs, or reunion specials, we continue to reserve the right to ask you about anything and everything “Friends”-related in Round Eight. We’d say get to watching, but we know you’re already five seasons deep in your 30th rewatch.

The quiz is $5 per player and the winners will take home a cash prize large enough to buy tickets to see Hootie and the Blowfish and then some. The more players, the larger the cash pot, so invite your annoying exes, clothing-challenged neighbors, and twins (hand or otherwise). General Geeks Who Drink rules will apply. You’re limited to 6 total players on your team and we’re quzzing like its the ‘90s. Use of any cell phones or any other outside assistance is strictly prohibitted.

Registration for this quiz is REQUIRED! Head on over to http://bit.ly/GWDFriendsReg to register your team.

THEMED QUIZ FAQs

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.

Can people under 21 play?
Sorry kids, Geeks Who Drink is a beer-soaked quiz for adults. You must be 21+ to play.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 2 1/2 hours.

I’d like to help promote the quiz/talk to you on my podcast/contribute some bonus prizes.
Great! Contact us at marketing@geekswhodrink.com and we’ll see about making that happen.
