Our monthly Killer Queen Arcade League Night has evolved! We're now hosting casual "mixer" tournaments that are a great opportunity for new players to learn the game and seasoned veterans to mix it up with new teams Randomly drawn teams of five will compete in best-of-five matches. With five teams or fewer, the tournament will be run Round Robin style. With six or more, it will be Double Elimination. All matches start on day map, but the losing team of the last game can pick the level in the next game. Registration is from 7pm to 8pm SHARP. The tournament organizer, Dylan, will not take any names after 8pm. Once the list is full, we'll start drawing colors. Please return to the table at 8pm to draw your color and meet your teammates. We will allow ~15 minutes for everyone to get situated and organized before the first game will start. One card of each color will have a Q on it. This means that player is the team's designated queen. If you draw a Q and DO NOT WANT to play queen for ANY REASON, you can put it back and draw a new card. This tournament is designed for people to make new friends in the KQ community! Competition is certainly encouraged, but this is a bit more of a social event. All skill levels are welcome and encouraged! Best of all, playing is completely free. Don't forget, Ground Kontrol serves draft beer, draft cider, PBR, Tecate, Coors Light and well cocktails at happy hour prices from 5pm-midnight every Sunday! Be sure to join Killer Queen Mercury Squad Portland to keep up with fellow players, special events and bee puns! WHAT: Killer Queen Monthly Mixer Tournament WHEN: Sunday, July 5th. Registration opens at 7pm, first match begins at 8pm. COVER: Free! 21+ only w/ ID.

Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Trivia Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK. Our quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television. You can get a feel for the questions we ask by playing a sample round here. Each quiz has two audio rounds: a "Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV. Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you're some kind of savant. If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team. Winning teams gets street cred, bar credit and other prizes! Bonus Questions for more prizes are sprinkled throughout the quiz. You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final friggin' Jeopardy! http://www.geekswhodrink.com/
