Geeks Who Drink Trivia at Clock Bar

Geeks Who Drink is a Denver-based company that hosts Bar Trivia at over 800 pubs and restaurants in 46 states. Our quiz is a collective effort of dozens of quizmasters, writers, fact-checkers, graphic designers and artists.

What's the quiz format like?

The quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions each, played by teams of up to six people. Questions are read aloud by the quizmaster and teams write down the answers, turning them in at the end of each round.

Rounds 1,  4 and 6 are themed rounds – anything from "Eight Questions About Sex That Won’t Make You Too Uncomfortable" to "TV Shows Your Parents Watch." Round 2 is a music round worth double points: name the artist and title for each song clip. Round 3 is a multiple choice round or a speed round. Round 5 is a visual round based on a printed handout. The all-audio Round 7 usually covers movies or TV shows, and is worth the standard eight points. Finally, Round 8 is always 16 points on Random Knowledge.

One round can be jokered, doubling your points for that round only (yes, the 16-point rounds are fair game). The team with the most points after eight rounds is the winner.

Here's a small sample of what you'll hear at one of our quizzes. Remember, each quiz consists of eight rounds of eight questions. Two of those rounds are audio, one is a visual round and the rest are read aloud by our quizmaster. Sometimes we will have the ability to play video, so you might even see one of those pop up now and again. Every week is brand new quiz, so come back as often as you can! You can find our full schedule at Clock Bar here.
