*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 is back, in a similar format to January's well received event. You'll need brains, brilliance and booze to win. Is it a pub quiz on steroids? A treasure hunt without the travel? You decide.

This Love Quiz is the kick off of the Zürich Hash 600th run weekend. We will have at least 2 teams of hashers, some of whom will fly in for the weekend. There are some tough, smart barathletes among them, so the local teams will need to be on top form. If you want to see what the opposition is like turn up to a Thursday or Saturday jog / walk or the open social on Friday 25th March.
The team theme is professions. These can be everyday professions like accountant, IT geek or farmer or exotic professions like circus acrobats. Choose your favourite or the one that represents your team best. You'll earn points by dressing and acting as your profession in a way that interests the judges so do think carefully before coming as a team of, say, actuaries.

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.

As usual, you earn points (Beeros again) by getting right answers, drinking, acting in theme, bribery and skill at other activities. There will be a performance challenge again. This time teams draw a performance out of a hat and hope they fit well with their profession.

Devi's is not large, but has a great atmosphere, not to mention interesting spirits. If we have more than 8 big teams we'll find a way to expand the event.

RSVP'd Yes: 55 (5 members and 50 guests)
  • AppleRed + 2 guests
  • DanielL + 7 guests - Will have a think about a team :)
  • Puzzler + 35 guests - 2-3 hasher teams, provisionally named 'pirates' and 'vampires'. 'Lumberjacks', 'saggarmaker's bottom knockers' teams. Possibly a bankers team. 5-7 teams is fine.
  • cristina_in_zuerich + 5 guests - The IT crowd
  • Chemmie + 1 guest - Who wants to make a random team?
RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (2 members and No guests)
  • Wollishofener
  • Soleil - It sounds so exiting, I hope I can be there! I would be in the team "Politicians". ;)
RSVP'd No: 4
  • Nanda - Unfortunately can't make it. Thanks for organising :)
  • Kittster - Got a hiking weekend planned and my health won't permit drinking late and hiking early.
  • summerrain - not this time either :(
  • zwissmiss - heart says yes, head says no, head wins...next one for sure!
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

I hope someone chooses that profession and yes, you would get lots of points if I were judging that part. Note that acting the part is also important.

Are you and yours reserving that profession then?

Re: Love Quiz II

This time we'll have some food (chili and bread). No need to eat before you come, which is good as you can earn beeros before the quiz starts.

This time we will start with some organiser and team introductions. You'll get a few beeros for a good introduction and the chance to psych out the other teams.

We now have a vampires team. Any advance on that?

Sounds like fun---but I require a team--who has room for another?

Even if nobody volunteers we'll find you a team. Nobody has been teamless on the night yet! If you are alone you could come early, then you have more time to look at who's there.

If need be---I will try and build a team out of nerdy ETHers..... they might be socialy slow, they might not be able to hold their alcy....but they all love a good time and perhaps I can find a few who are very learned!

Please do! Some of the teams from Love Quiz 1 won't be there so we could use another team. The questions are similar to those I use for Shamrock Sunday pub quizzes. There are some student teams there and they are happy enough with the questions, if not the occasional bad pun.

Oh dear, by the rules of the game you will get Beeros for acting in character. Spare us!

Re: Love Quiz II

If you plan to come, or are not sure, and are not in my guests already, please sign up as yes or maybe by 16:00 on Thursday. On Thursday night I'll estimate how much food we need and provisionally reserve team spaces.

Having said that, a few extra people just turning up would be fine.

Re: Love Quiz II

Ok so some of my buddys lamed out, but I'm still pumped, but will be joining a random team when I arrive since I'm too lazy to make up on for myself. Looking forward!

That's fine, you'll have plenty of choice. See you soon.

Re: Love Quiz II

A long and loud event, with lots of laughs. Thanks to Sabrina and Chizuru at Devi's for keeping up.

Pirates narrowly won a titanic battle for first place. High scoring on the questions kept them in the lead all the way, with a strong challenge, steady drinking and enough bribery. The recruitment strategy seemed to work, namely sit at the door and take anyone coming in.
What was that joke? What's a pirate's worst nightmare? No chest and no booty. Any pirates watching, please post.

Bankers had a slow start until the markets turned at the half way stage, liquidity kicked in and they finished with a top score on the final questions and the best challenge. We thought they'd struggle when they drew the 'poetry' challenge but produced one of the funniest challenges ever. If you are watching, and remember them, please post. Guys, you were awesome.

Very tight for 3rd place, which was won by a neck by the vampires. Challenge, costume, drinking and bribery were the secrets here.

Good start by the Saggarmakers bottom knockers, faded a bit after the Human Sacrifice (chili vodka shot) for the top 2 teams at the half way stage.

Good drinking (4 pints in 48 seconds) and fashion skills by the IT nerds team. A good performance considering you had no old farts, no native English speakers and hadn't done this before.

Last but not least, the hobos, whose incredible drinking performance (4 pints in 29 seconds) wasn't enough to catch the leaders.

Nice to see the top 2 teams are mainly people new to these quizzes and treasure hunts.

Many thanks to Ros and Hanneke for helping with the organisation. If you'd like to see the Zürich Hash in action again we meet every Thursday and 1 Friday and Saturday each month.

Hint for future events. Biting an organiser doesn't normally earn beeros, unless it is in character (vampires).

Puzzler Productions, with Dr. Lucy, do (quieter) Sunday quizzes at the Shamrock every month or so. Our next is on the 17th April. A treasure hunt is overdue too. How about undiscovered Niederdorf in June?
