Geeks Who Drink was a weekly game show based on the nationwide pub trivia contest of the same name.

FormatEdit

In each installment, two teams of three self-proclaimed trivia geeks (including a celebrity captain) competed in rapid-fire quizzes that covered topics from pop culture to science fiction. After a lot ofraucous gameplay and (mostly) friendly competition, the winning team would earn bragging rights, a spot on the show's leaderboard, and a bevy of prizes to "geek" out over.

The game itself was played in four rounds.

Round 1Edit

This round was played in two parts

Speed RoundEdit

To start, Levi would flip a coin with the word "geek" on one side, and "drink" on the other. Whoever won would play first. He would then ask each contestant a series of questions with the same two choices. Each correct answer put $10 in their bank. Two categories were played, meaning a team could score a maximum of $60.

Toss-Up RoundEdit

Levi would ask a series of questions from a certain category (some of which were visuals). Each correct answer was worth $10. The first team whose captain buzzed in with the correct answer won the money; an incorrect answer gave the opponents a chance to answer.

Round 2Edit

This round was played in three parts.

Mini-GameEdit

Contestants had to answer questions based on the structure of the category. Each correct answer was worth $20.

Wild CardEdit

A celebrity guest would ask a question, and a correct answer was worth $20.

NOTE: Sometimes this segment was played in the first round, with a correct answer being worth $10.

Group ChallengeEdit

This was a competive version of the Race Game from The Price is Right. Each team went to a podium with a series of items on it. They had to match each item to the correct answers, or simply put them in a certain order. When they thought they were all correct, the captain would hit a buzzer. The first team with a complete match won $50.

Round 3Edit

This round was played in two parts.

MathbusterEdit

Levi would ask a mathematics based question. The teams had fifteen seconds to write down their answers. A correct answer earned that team $100.

NOTE: Sometimes there were two questions in this segment, with each correct answer worth $50.

Bar GameEdit

The team captains competed in a stunt of some sort, and the winner would get to choose the category for the final round.

Final Round: Last CallEdit

The team who won the Bar Game would choose a category, and decide whether to go first or second. The teams would then go back and forth naming items that fit the category. In a manner similar to Pass the Buck, a correct answer kept them in the game, while an incorrect answer eliminated them. When one team was completely eliminated, the other team would win $100 for each player left standing.


The team with the highest score won the game, kept the money, and won bonus prizes.
