Quizdamonium - not your slightly older brother's pub quiz.
It is a monthly pub quiz show run out of The Social Capital Theatre every second Wednesday of the Month.
Sure, there will be general knowledge rounds. How else will we know how general your knowledge is? But prepare yourself to think outside the box with our specially devised, always changing novelty rounds. Solve a series of riddles. Draw us a picture of a dromedary. Maybe this month's music round will all be podcast theme songs. Maybe it won't because we've been told that's a really shitty thing to do.
PLUS STEAL POINTS FROM OTHER TEAMS IN OUR SPEED ROUND!
It's PWYC, plus drink specials, plus PRIZES!
TEAM SIZE – due to the size of our tables, we recommend a maximum team size of 6 people. If you bring 7 we won't stop you, but 8+ consider undergoing mitosis and forming two teams.
QUIZ WILL START AT 8:00!
Quizdamonium is co-production between Maddox Campbell and Andrea Miller done on behalf of The Social Capital and proudly sponsored by The Side Launch Brewing Company.
