The Amazing Quizshow!

On the second evening of Pixels Camp, sixteen teams of two go up on the main stage to answer a bunch of trivia questions from the geek universe. By the end of the quizshow, only one team will come out with the enviable title of top geek (and a prize).

The Qualifiers

When the qualifiers are over, the quizmaster asks participants ranking in the Top 16 to choose a sidekick. This person can be any accepted Pixels Camp attendee: having participated in the qualifiers is not required.

If two qualified participants choose to pair up, the next participant in line gets qualified automatically. If a team fails to show up, the next team in line will be called on stage. So, keep your brains ready and emails from the quizmaster out of your spam folder.
