Was it good fun or lame? Has anyone else been to the one at Pickwicks?
I have - felt utterly unwelcome by the guy who was managing the quizz. Not at all like the friendly ones I had experienced elsewhere in the past.

Re: Pub Quiz in Basel?

Hi

I'm bringing this thread up again because I'm really interested in going to the quiz at Mr Pickwicks. I'm new in Basel, but from what I've heard, it's every other Sunday at 7.30pm. The next one is on Sunday 23rd September. Anyone interested in starting a team (or letting me join theirs).

Thanks
Josie

Re: Pub Quiz in Basel?

I've never participated in any Pub Quizes, but I'd like to join you at some p(o)int, cause the idea sounds like a lot of fun.

And I'm away this weekend so hopefully next time it's on at Pickwicks.

Re: Pub Quiz in Basel?

I've been invited out tomorrow, and don't think I'll be back in time for the quiz. Sorry to do this last minute, but I am definitely in for next time!

Re: Pub Quiz in Basel?

I went to the Pickwicks quiz a couple of years back. It seemed to be mainly aggressive chavs taking part.

Cheers,
Nick

NIck, that is exactly the impression I got, a couple of years ago. I Was very disapointed so have not bene back.

However, I would like to give it another try as it may not be lead by the same person any more.

So, tonight at 7.30pm.

I think there is a limit to how many people can be in a team. IF we have enough for a team and a half, can we agree to split into 2 teams so noone misses out?
