Trivia Club with a BOWIE tie-in

November 19, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

| FREE

Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke, Berlin!

The Man Who Fell To Earth, Jareth, Tesla!

From Ziggy Stardust to The Next Day!

How will you do Under Pressure? Can you deal with the price of Fame, you Young Americans? Hopefully you’re Goblin up these puns like a King. Okay, I admit that last one was a step too far. But what we’re talking about is DAVID BOWIE, the brown AND blue-eyed iconoclast, a man who has been an iconoclast since he stepped on the world stage. Who took his weird, wonderful, sex appeal and became something of a legend… he’s been a massive hit makers, a movie star, and a patriarch to the independent music scene. He’s the who helped break Arcade Fire wide across the world, while also raising a son who would go on to became an amazing filmmaker in his own right.

David Bowie has lived, and is living, one hell of a life.

So we hope you checked out the Bowie exhibit at the AGO while it was in town.

How it Works:

It’s Toronto’s premiere trivia game show in three rounds! Perfected for your optimal enjoyment!

ROUND ONE

TRIVIA CLASSIC! You’ll be supplied with pens and papers as you answer 10 questions to warm-up your mind and thrill your brain! The first round includes such classic questions as Actor Verb Actor, Tagline Takedown, Mash-up Madness, and Paxton or Pullman (OR something akin to it)! The round will end with TRIVIA ROYALE! How much do you know? Prove it, as the clock ticks down and the buzzer sounds!

ROUND TWO

GAME SHOW GAMES, consists of the MATCH GAME which tests how much you know your teammates, HOW MUCH DID THAT MOVIE MAKE which we’ll play with Price Is Right rules, and COUNTDOWN TAKEDOWN which gives you the chance to WIN points while TAKING them from another team!

ROUND THREE

TRI-PARDO! Influenced by Jeopardy (copyright, Merv Griffin Enterprises) and named in honor of famed Saturday Night Live announcer Don Pardo. Two Rounds in which 10, 15, or 20 points are on the line to WIN or LOSE! Then once all is said and done, every team must hunker down for the TRIVIA FINALE!

There’ll be drink specials (half-price on bottles of wine!) and treats to the people who dress up for the night’s theme , candy, comic books, and a special GOLDEN VHS for the winning team! As Gladstone’s TV Trivia Night (the first Tuesday of every month) puts it, prizes and prestige is on the line, so study up!
