Calling all geeks and superhero aficionados: brush up on your favorite Captain America, Incredible Hulk, and Iron Man comic books and films as you prepare for ASSEMBLE!, the Geeks Who Drink's "Avengers" trivia night. Geeks Who Drink is a Denver-based company that runs more than 440 weekly pub quizzes for 20,000 players in 29 states. It runs four games in Rochester each week at various venues.
Previous themed quizzes have focused on such pop-culture favorites as "Game of Thrones," "Breaking Bad," and "Doctor Who." The "Avengers" quiz night is a great way to ready fans for the premiere of the release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," which hits theaters on Friday. April 4. Quizzes are made up of eight rounds of eight questions and will cover both the comic books and the eight Marvel Studios films (the three Iron Man films, two Thor films, "Incredible Hulk," the 2011's "Captain America: The First Avenger," and 2012's "The Avengers"), but will focus mostly on the movies. Teams can include up to six people and cash prizes will be awarded to the winning team.
ASSEMBLE! will take place Thursday, April 3, at 8 p.m. at Jeremiah's Tavern, 1104 Monroe Ave. Admission is $5 for each player, and teams are allowed on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, visit facebook.com/GeeksWhoDrinkRochester.
