A small heads up about regarding this year's quiz - Please note the start time is at 5:30 and not 6:30. We're aiming to end earlier so people can get to Halloween parties in the area/Tokyo. It's not a guarantee, but we'll do our best to make the quiz awesome as usual while allowing time for people to get their monster mash on later  :mrgreen:

just a heads up that it is a BITCH if you pack that place. it gets to be impossible to move around, and one table ends up stuck sitting next to the speaker and gets their eardrums blown out all night  :x

That is a good point as I have been stuck next to the speaker before. I am going to the Tsuki cafe this weekend (hopefully) and I'll see if there is anyway that we can fix that issue.

Can you add Sheena Turner and Kenichi Kikkawa to the waiting list? They are having trouble with Facebook. If possible, can they be together?

So how did pub quiz go?  Did you all like Wade's questions that I wrote for him?

Sucked ass!!  :-P

I've enjoyed all the pub quizzes so far (including this one and even Coleman's crazy ass questions) but as said in other threads, it's difficult to organise these things so no offence to the council, but it would have been better if it wasn't at the same time as Halloween next year. People wanting to leave early, missing rounds off to finish early. It all felt a bit rushed. Maybe it's just me which is fine, but just saying.
Wouldn't it be nice, to get on with my neighbours!

The feedback that we've got back was that people enjoyed themselves apart from the cutting rounds which was sucky but we had to do it as otherwise, we were looking at a 9.45pm finish.
In the past, rounds have been cut or the quiz have overran.

Damned if you do, damned if you don't really.

We had planned on starting at 5.45 at the latest, but at that time, there were a lot of people still missing, so we couldn't really start. I ended up calling a ton of people to try and work out where they were.

Having said that, this was the best attended pub quiz in the last 9 years, if not longer (as we don't have records going back that far). The costumes were awesome and I personally really enjoyed myself.
Many many thanks to Wade and Sairus who made all of the quiz and hosted it too. It's never easy to make those questions.

I hope the rest of you enjoyed the quiz!

I don't know who you're talking about....  ^-^

It was great and I'm just being picky. Really I'm saying it's good enough to not want to stop short which is a compliment not an insult (not like that Jack over there trying to sell his friends stuff! Bastard!  :evil:)

Wouldn't it be nice, to get on with my neighbours!

Ha ha ha... you weren't the only ones. There were quite a few. Luckily some had phoned ahead and let us know and we were able to make on the fly decisions.  :lol:

Yeah, I would have loved to have done the other two rounds too. I always enjoy pub quiz, even if I am not particularly good at it.
