Well, pretty much anything that comes under that generally accepted banner would qualify here. So things like Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Discworld, Wheel of Time, Battlestar Galactica, Game of Thrones, Firefly, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Supernatural, Stranger Things, The Expanse, and more.
Don't be surprised if we also cover urban fantasy and supernatural (vampire/werewolf/magic) style books, TV shows and movies as well.
We are trying to be somewhat friendly with our questions - it will generally be something memorable or well known about the source material. The following guidelines will apply:
But don't forget, there's going to be seven other people on your table who can help you out!
All that being said, there may be a few challenging questions thrown in throughout the night as well.
Here's a few sample questions from previous years:
|Starstruck||In Star Trek, what would a blue-shirted uniform signify?|
|Monsters and Aliens||What three supernatural creatures are the main characters in Being Human?|
|Munchkinland||What does Coraline's other mother want to replace her eyes with?|
|Location, Location, Location||In what video game can you visit the city of Orgrimmar?|
|Sequels and Spinoffs||In Stargate Atlantis, what galaxy is Atlantis located in?|
|Colour By Number||In The Matrix, what colour pill does Neo take to escape the illusion world and enter the real world?|
|Leading Ladies||In Frozen, Elsa is queen of what kingdom?|
|Vintage||Who is credited as the inventor of Dungeons and Dragons?|
You can also book individual tickets (including several at once), and we'll seat all of you together, but you may end up sharing a table with strangers on the night. Hopefully by the end of the quiz you will have made some new friends!
Sorry, but due to the space available in the bowling club, and the fact that it's unfair to other tables who have 8 or less people, we can't allow a table with more than 8 people. If you have a friend or two beyond the table size, they can book individual tickets and we'll make sure there's a seat for them with some potential new friends!
You can bring along your own food (nibbles) for your table to share.
You can't bring in any soft drinks or alcohol, due to the liquor license at the venue. However, there will be a bar where you can buy drinks (alcoholic and soft) at reasonable prices, thanks to the Clarence Gardens Bowling Club. Cash only please, the club does not have EFTPOS facilities.
You may wear a Science Fiction/Fantasy themed costume if you want to - we'll hold a "parade" during the quiz and the best costume (as voted by our judges) will go home with a prize!
However, costumes are not compulsory, just encouraged :D
The prizes for our 2019 quiz night are donated by:
The City of Small Gods Terry Pratchett Fan Club is a group of Terry Pratchett / Discworld fans in Adelaide who meet on a regular basis for fun activities. We ran the 2017 Australian Discworld Convention which was a huge success. Many of us are also involved in the next convention, which will be held in Sydney in July 2021.
