Quiz For a Cause! Trivia Night with Geeks Who Drink

November 23, 2020
5:00 pm
7:00 pm

On Monday, November 23rd, OACC is raising money with the power of a well-attended pub quiz – now on Zoom!
Quiz For A Cause is our philanthropic endeavor to unite geeks with great individuals, charities, and organizations in their community who want to raise funds towards a worthy goal – all while showing off how smart you are.
The Oakland Asian Cultural Center (OACC) is the only pan-Asian arts and cultural center in the East Bay, welcoming over 25,000 guests each year. We aim to build a stronger, more vibrant community through robust arts, cultural, and social justice programming to connect different generations, cultures, and identities. Your ticket purchase goes towards ensuring OACC’s continued innovation and our staff’s ability to provide critical online programming for East Bay API communities. Since the COVID-19 outbreak, there has been a noted rise in reports of racism, violence, and discrimination against APIA communities throughout the country. Now more than ever, OACC’s mission, commitment, and dedication towards the APIA community of artists, culture, and social justice is most important. We have initiated several new projects including the “Open E.A.R.S. for Change” anti-racism series, a performing arts series featuring four accomplished local API artists, and building virtual educational resources to remotely stand-in for our suspended school tours program. We are newly imagining exhibitions to be virtually accessible and exploring remote-friendly presentation formats to elevate and support the visual arts while our physical space remains closed.
Please follow the link to our Monday, 11/23 event, scheduled at 6pm Mountain. https://withribbon.com/s/14348
Look for the Quiz For A Cause logo! And look for more fundraisers coming soon… it’s a strange world right now and we still need to help wherever we can. You can help us do that while playing pub quiz in the safety of your own home!
The rest of this is the usual Zoom Quiz FAQ!
How do we play?
Virtual quizzes are run live on Zoom. We will use Zoom’s breakout rooms to create a private space for you and your team. Plan to play solo? Breakout rooms can get lonely by yourself, instead of a breakout room you’ll get to party down in the main room with the Quizmasters.
How do I get the room link?
The link will be embedded in the confirmation email you receive after purchase.
How do we communicate during the quiz?
After each round is over, we’ll send you into breakout rooms with your teams* to discuss the answers before submitting them. We’ll even give you a copy of the questions to review while you’re there. You won’t be able to talk during the round though, so feel free to take notes while you’re playing.
How do I submit my answers?
When you enter the Zoom meeting we’ll provide you the link for the night’s digital answer sheet. Only one person will need to fill it out.
How do you prevent cheating?
We have a very, very complex system that detects cheaters with 99.999% accuracy. We could explain how it works but, you know, character limits…
How long is the quiz?
About 90 minutes, with five rounds of six questions and an 8 question visual round.
What are the team sizes?
Teams can be up to 6 people.
Do I have to buy tickets for my whole team?
No, you can buy 1-6 tickets each.
Can I add more people to my team later?
Yes, but we do recommend purchasing all tickets at once. Either the team captain may purchase additional tickets, or an individual can purchase a ticket and join an existing team by providing the team name.
Can I join after the quiz starts?
Sorry, no. Ticket sales close 1 hour prior to the start time so we can prepare the quiz.
Can I change my team name?
Again, sorry, no. We’ll ask for your team name at checkout and will use that name to create a team’s breakout room.
Are there any prizes?
Bragging rights galore… and the winning team will get to choose their victory song, played to close out the quiz.
What is your refund policy?
All purchases are final. In the event of a cancellation, or technical issues on our end that prevent the quiz from continuing, refunds will be processed as soon as possible.
I didn’t find my answer here.
That’s totally intentional. We love hearing from you so drop us a line at virtual@geekswhodrink.com and we can talk about it!
