Pub Quiz Winners

epic.ELEVEN pub quiz was very epic with a huge number of teams and people taking part. The competition was tough and after the first few rounds a number of teams started to break away from the pack but it was close between them right up until the end. Overall though one team fought off the competition to be crowned champions of the quiz. They won a total of £79 with InWin mouse mats and that team was 'That's a failboat'

Congrats to Ddanblack, Ozoro, Vorpal, Peacestrike, DavyEddy and Simondo!

epic.ELEVEN - Pub Quiz

Pub QuizOne of the biggest tournaments of the event is our regular pub quiz, taking place on the Friday at around 8pm (subject to Winbar time). We've brought the team size cap back in to effect this event with 8 people maximum in a team, and we'll be making sure there are plenty of tables around so teams don't have to share this time.

As a teaser, some of the rounds you can look forward to this time include:

  • Gaming Music
  • General Knowledge
  • Entertainment
  • Sports
  • Current Affairs
  • Who Am I?
  • Music
  • TV Sitcoms
  • And our super special bonus rounds!

To take part, just assemble your team in the gallery around 8pm on the Friday armed with £1 per person and a suitably amusing team name.

epic.TEN Fun Tournament and Quiz Round Up

pubquiz winnersSo another event has passed us by but its been none stop with fun tournaments for our social gamers. epic.TEN saw fun tournaments in Just Dance on the consoles, F1 2011, UT2K4 and minecraft create. Plenty of people got involved with these to provide some great entertainment over the weekend.


We also had the pub quiz which had a record number of participants this event. We saw some regular teams returning to defend their quiz titles and go all out for winning and some new teams who fancied their chances. In the top few teams it was quite a closely contended quiz with just three teams in the end who were seperated by only one or two points. The winners this event were Streamgasm closely follwed by Can'tfitmyn and Rebel Scum. Full Pub Quiz scores and results will be posted shortly after the event.
