You're a Quizard Harry... the Harry Potter Quiz is June 7th!

The boy who quizzed...

Yes, our second all Harry Potter quiz is coming to Wisconsin on June 7th!
Full details and a list of locations are pending but so far we will be hosting at the following...

- Fixture Brewing Co., Waukesha (7pm)
- Howie's, La Crosse (7pm)
- Three Lions Pub, Shorewood (7pm)
- Red Lion Pub, Milwaukee (7pm)

And if last year's HP quiz is anything to go by, there will be several more venues added (last year's event was the BIGGEST QUIZ Quizmaster has ever hosted, pulling in 63 teams and over 280 players in MKE alone)!

Expect the usual prizes for 1st, 2nd and "best Harry Potter team name" (yep, more Slytherin and Snitch references) and venues will be running specials, most likely "Goblet of Fire" shots to tingle the senses of eager quizzers.

This quiz will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and entry fees will be paid on the night and will not exceed $5/player.

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? 
It varies for each venue. Up to $5/player but no more. 

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, mostly likely free beer or bar tabs to the venue.

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.

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 dough.

I own/manage a venue. Can I host such an event at my bar?
It depends. In almost all cases, we only work with existing Quizmaster clients on our specially themed events, 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.

  1. Sad to see there are no venues in Northeast Wisconsin hosting this fun event tonight... hopefully you can bring it here soon!

    1. Yes, we apologize for that. If you know of any venues in your area that would be a good fit for Quizmaster then please let us know! :)

  2. What are your requirements for the quizmaster watching for cheating? My friends and I love going to play, but for the past two weeks, there were participants blatantly cheating and it really takes the fun out of the whole experience. We will for sure not be going back to the McGillicudy's location to play in the future. The guy that was there before was good about watching for it, but the new person is not and the table set up in that place makes it very easy to cheat.

  3. Hi, we've reached out to our host at the venue and will ask her to be more vigilant in that respect going forward. Usually as far as cheating goes, we ask hosts to give a verbal warning first, followed by a points deduction and then disqualification if it continues. Obviously, they need to be able to prove that teams are actually cheating and not just using their phones for other means, so it can be a fine line. We do our best to enforce the rules and ultimately it lies in the hands of the players to do the right thing and play fair. Our host will be on the look out at Gilly's in the weeks to come. Thanks for the heads up!
