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. :(

As you've guessed, there will be a few beeros for dressing and acting the part.

I am expecting lots of beeros for undertaking that hair raising task (ie scaring off the OH)

Re: The Love Quiz

Have had an inspiring holiday in England. The prizes are ready, along with some new ideas...

This quiz will include vegetables, out of date Xmas decorations and artistic skills.

I hope some people want to make rabbits and dogs teams. You won't regret it.

Keep watching the thread, there might be more hints later.

You're East Asian. You deserve beeros if you can even grow one hair. Ditto for your hubby.

Of course, we're happy to take on any strays who want to be cats.

Re: The Love Quiz

Coming along nicely - 5 teams signed up and I know of 2 or 3 more in the making.

There is always room for people without teams to turn up and join some existing animals or join a pack of strays (dogs?). It's great to see some people new to Zürich signing up. You'll meet the cream of expat society here, you won't regret it.

Big teams are OK if you don't mind squeezing together a bit. There will be plenty to do so you can divide up the tasks.

Some hints will follow when I've done most of the questions, by Sunday evening I hope.

First hint - turn up early to get a nice spot and start earning beeros for drinking.

Re: The Love Quiz

My friend and I are happy to belong to the stray dogs group as it looked like there were a couple of others out there looking for a home...

I have reserved the dogs team. A good friend of mine and experienced quizzer should be able to join you, and possibly give you an insight into the brains of the quiz masters. Suggest you turn up early to meet each other and start earning beeros for drinking.
