14.01.2011 19:00 to 23:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Drinks/Bar
Meeting Point: Devi's Bar, opposite Wiedikon station

The Love Quiz will be like no other pub quiz you've been to. There are some normal quiz questions rounds, some activities you know and love from the treasure hunt and some secret ingredients. You'll need brains, brilliance and booze to win. Is it a pub quiz with interaction? A treasure hunt without the travel? You decide.
Devi's isn't very big and this is an experiment so I plan to limit the competition to 10 teams. These are all furry animals (bears, cats, dogs, horses, mice, rats, rabbits, monkeys, gorillas and sloths). Choose your favourite or the one that represents your team best. If you don't have a team, you can say which team you'd like to join, or just turn up on the night in hope.

If lots of people want to join we can either expand it somehow or repeat soon after.

As in the treasure hunts, you earn points (Beeros again) by getting right answers, drinking, bribery and skill at other activities.

RSVP'd Yes: 58 (11 members and 47 guests)
  • zwissmiss + 5 guests - Team Bears - reserved!
  • HashBrown + 5 guests - We will be 6 cheeky monkeys.
  • Tuesday11 + 4 guests - Is team rabbits still available?
  • moongoddess + 1 guest - Team Dogs. All other strays welcome here!
  • AppleRed + 1 guest
  • makeabigwish + 3 guests - We will be Team Sloth .... Sloths are often underestimated.
  • summerrain + 6 guests - Gorillas in the mist - too many gorillas now. Sorry!
  • Kittster + 6 guests - Team Cats, what else? And we also would be too big for any more, sorry.
  • diggdog - Deffo a YES now. Going to the dogs if they'll take me. Devans, are you still in?
  • Country_Mouse + 1 guest - I am terrible at these things, but will prop up the end of a bar pretty well
  • Puzzler + 15 guests - Teams taken so far: bears, cats, dogs, gorillas, horses, monkeys, rabbits, rats, sloths (2). Available teams: mice.
RSVP'd Maybe: 3 (3 members and No guests)
  • Marz
  • Devans - diggdog, you sound like you should start a dogs team. I'm solo here, and my Chinese sign is Dog so I'll join you
  • jack-o-bean - potential stray.
RSVP'd No: 7
  • lisa_bsl - in Davos that weekend! Have fun!
  • eng_ch - I'm away that weekend too, otherwise it sounds quite fun!
  • i-b-deborah - Have a "work do" that popped up on that night.
  • luminousmind08 - sorry, Sloths have to drop out
  • Begga
  • Natasha - Sorry, at Sean Hughes.
  • Phil_MCR - sorry. injured now so can't make it anymore. :(
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: The Love Quiz

GRRRRRR! With the Flu going around one of my Bears might not make it....
I better go bring her some honey (and whiskey and lemon)

I am really looking forwards to this and no, I don't need free beeros to be convinced to come and have an early drink but I will take them gladly.

Re: The Love Quiz

Hi Puzzler,

Thanks for that we could use some guidance. Me and my friend have only ever done one other pub quiz before (in november) but we won second place...

Do you want to put me in contact with your buddy so that I can meet up with him, or will there be a specific DOG table?

Yea, under one of the other tables. Just look for some treats or a dog dish underneath

(shameless bump)

If you were at Shamrock on 21st Nov I did the quiz. That would be enough to put most people off. If you were at St Joseph's you might have met a well built Irish gent who won a November quiz.

Easiest is if you turn up early if possible as I know a couple of experienced quizzers and friends that will probably need people but aren't completely organised yet. Also I'll explain stuff more carefully to new people.

Re: The Love Quiz

Some more hints...

Monkeys, you'll need to be smart and witty and present well. Sloths too, if you can raise the energy to turn up.
Bears are more local, dogs international, rats are everywhere.
Horses are sporty, mice are happy.
Cats will be playful. But then aren't you always?
Gorillas, you are looking good.
Look out for the dangerous Were Rabbits.

Reminder, the earlier you turn up the better. Might not help you answer the later question rounds but you'll feel less disappointed about not winning.

But seriously folks, this quiz looks wide open. Lots of smart people here, some with quizinal records as long as my arm.

By the way, did I mention that this quiz is an experiment? Experiments often get done on furry animals.

As many in a team as you like. 4-6 is most comfortable I think. Have designed something special for each animal. New animals are possible but would prefer not too many as that reduces my drinking time.

Re: The Love Quiz

Look out, it will be crowded. That means more entertainment and a slightly later finish (before 11 I expect).

Good thing it will be a nice day, so a couple of teams can stay outside (shouldn't be a problem for furry animals).

Great activity among the sloths. The original team dropped out and 3 new teams want to be sloths. My guests team (not signed up individually) are "Sloths Superior". Any distinguishing names for you other sloths? Or would that be too much effort? When I announce you as prize winners I can't simply say 'sloths', can I?

Devi's doesn't have food of its own apart from bar nibbles but does have a passageway to the McGees kitchen. There is a vietnamese takeaway round the corner and I expect you can eat that outside Devi's. Should have mentioned this earlier, sorry if you need to rearrange your plans.

Re: The Love Quiz

And thank you to the anonymous rugby player chap who put up with first being abused and then roped into carrying our booze to the kitty lair for us. Who said chivalry is dead?
