Twice-weekly Draught Horse quizzes begin now!

"Double your pleasure, double your fun." September begins the 7pm Tuesday quiz at the Draught Horse up at Temple U.'s campus. What's the same, what changes?

Nothing changes Wednesday and Thursday nights at 12 Steps Down and the Draught Horse. Same Bat-time, same Bat-channel, same Bat-format. The Thursday night quiz will be in the standard format and will have a completely different set of questions than Tuesday, thus you can play there twice/week if you like. Please do.

Tuesday night at El Camino Real does not really change except for the fact that I might get there a tad after 9pm these first couple of weeks doing the 7pm as we hack out the format and I work my way down to Northern Liberties.

Tuesday evening at the Draught Horse, however, will be riding the psychedelic pserpent through Crazyville at first for many of you who are accustomed to the normal Quizmasterchris format. The quiz will be a bridge between Happy Hour and other, later-night events and is designed to hook some new folks and add a new twist for people stuck up at campus who might want to play twice/week. (You're welcome!)

For one thing, the weekly annoucement of a Subject, as per below, applies to the entire quiz, not just one round. All of the 4-5 rounds of the quiz will be on the same subject. We will likely be giving prizes for the highest score per round, as well as perhaps a cumulative prize as normal for the whole evening. Let's see how this works.

Most radically... are you seated? You'll want to be seated for this. This is seismic in this little quiz world.

We're going to try a bit of a wagering system for points. None of this random jokering you get at some quizzes however. The answer sheet for each round of ten questions will have a space for a Primary Answer and a Secondary Answer. If your Primary Answer to a question is correct, and you write no Secondary Answer, you get 3 points for that answer. If you write both and the Primary Answer is correct, you get 2 points. If your Secondary Answer is correct, one point. Zero points for two wrong answers.

Let the games begin!
