Warning: Video Contains Fake Blood and Faux Violent Scenes
DENVER, CO – Monday, June 9, 2014 — Pub quiz company Geeks Who Drink® are announcing Fire Cannot Kill a Quizmaster: A “Game of Thrones” Quiz, a one-night-only live trivia event in 23 major cities. The quiz will happen on Saturday, June 14, just before the season four finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”.
Thousands of fans will crowd bars across the country to be tested on HBO’s most popular program and George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which the show is based. This is the second “Game of Thrones” event for Geeks Who Drink. The first, presented in June 2013, was among the most successful in Geeks Who Drink’s theme quiz series. The nine-year-old Denver-based company runs more than 450 weekly pub quiz events for 20,000 players in 31 states. Their themed quizzes are often thought of as “mini-conventions” for fans of properties like Star Wars, “Breaking Bad”, and “Doctor Who”.
“Last year’s quiz was really challenging,” said Geeks editor Jason Hart. “Those who have studied the material will do well, but this is an event that really caters to novices and experts alike.” Many locations will have costume contests, special drinks and prizes for side contests that will happen between rounds.
The rules limit quiz teams to a six-person max, with a $5 admission fee for each player and total prizes in the hundreds of dollars. Admission is allowed on a first-come, first-served basis, and many quizzers will show up hours in advance.
