We're throwing down again for all of the honey! Sign up to compete on the world's only 10-player arcade game, Killer Queen, in our lounge! This game's hard to find and harder to miss - two giant cabinets support 5 players each (with drink holders for your beer, of course). Teams compete as worker bees, warriors and Queens battling it out to be the first to collect the most pollen, decimate the opposing Queen three times, or ride the snail to their base. It's one of the best multiplayer experiences we've ever seen in arcades! Sign up for the tournament and you could win up to $50 in Ground Kontrol credit and champion pins! Tournament sign-ups take place 6-7pm, and the first game kicks off at 7. The tournament will feature best-of-five matches in a Round Robin or Double Elimination format. All skill levels welcome! Broadcast live online with play-by-play commentary! Make sure to pick up your unique participation badges, sold one-time-only every month for a dollar each. It's the Killer Queen Competitive Clash - one of Ground Kontrol's biggest tournaments, featuring our most dedicated players! WHAT: Killer Queen Competitive Clash WHEN: Every 3rd Monday. Signups starting at 6pm. Killer Queen Tournament kicks off at 7pm! COVER: No cover! Free to sign up and play in the Killer Queen Tournament at 7, too. 21+ only.

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/
