All right, geeks. It's time for a Game of Thrones throwdown.
On Saturday, June 14, Denver-based national pub quiz producer Geeks Who Drink hosts its second Game of Thrones pub quiz. The "Fire Cannot Kill a Quizmaster" trivia event will take place in select bars throughout the U.S. including Arizona's very own Devil's Advocate in Tempe.
Note: This post contains spoilers.
With promises to be "bloodier, geekier, and with a 100% more dead Joffreys" than the last, this event will test fans' knowledge of both the HBO show and the book series. Trivia questions will be primarily based on episodes up to the most recent broadcast date. So if you're scared of spoilers or slow to catch up, just know that you've been warned.
Admission to the pub quiz is $5 (cash only) per person. To increase your chances of winning, players can create teams of up to six people, but each team member must be paid for before quiz materials are supplied. Spectators must also pay an admission fee. Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested players are encouraged to arrive at least an hour before the 4 p.m. start time.
This is a winner-takes-all trivia event with the single winning player or team, taking home 50 percent of the total door admission.
