The quiz will cover a whole plethora of Springfield (and some Shelbyville) topics dating as far back as the family's first appearance on The Tracy Ullman Show in 1989. The quiz will follow the usual six-rounds, 30-questions format, with prizes as usual for 1st place, 2nd place and the best Simpsons-inspired team name.
The event will be $5/person with the dollars going to a charity of the winning team's choice.
As always, it's advised to ARRIVE EARLY, as these events are often jam packed and even with the two-story capacity of Jack's it will likely be like a nuclear power plant meltdown: overflowing with quiz peeps (just ask the 29 teams from our Star Wars Quiz).
Specially-themed quiz FAQs
Do we pre-register, sign up online?
No. We do these events like it's 1999. Just show up --- we advise you arrive a little early to grab a good seat --- drink, think and have fun. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, no reservations.
Okay, how much is it?
Five-dollar-holla. Or $5 as you common folk might say. Bring cash, pay the Quizmaster and take homage in knowing that your money's going to a good cause.
It's for charity?
In most cases yes. Events vary but proceeds from various special-themed quizzes go to a selected charity of the winning team's choice.
What are the prizes?
This will vary with each event but typically most are offering standard moolah for first place, second place and the best themed team name.
Can I wear a special outfit or costume?
Absolutely. Particularly if you want to feature on the blog. Hey, in some cases we even have costume contests and give out extra stash for those dressed up folks!
Can people under 21 play?
That's out of our hands we're afraid, and will vary depending on the venue. We'll be sure to communicate that via our Facebook page for each specific event, but if you're unsure just call the venue in advance to find out.
Is there a team-size limit?
Surprisingly no! While we typically have an 8-person limit for our regular quiz nights, we keep the specially-themed events open. Why? Well, we figured you'll need all the brain power possible, plus it means more players, and more money, for a good cause.
Do spectators have to pay?
Yup. If someone on your team is just there and "doesn't really know anything" they still have to cough up the 500 cents. Just assure them it's going to sick kids in Africa and they should feel good about their donation. Oh, and they can deduct it from their taxes too.
I own/manage a venue. Can I host such an event at my bar?
It depends. We only work with existing Quizmaster clients on our specially themed event, so hire us now and perhaps we can work something out. Such venues must fit certain criteria too. Location and venue size are key, especially when we've been known to pull in over 100 people for certain events.
