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).
When the qualifiers are over, the quizmaster will ask participants ranking in the top 16 positions to choose a sidekick of his/her choosing. This person doesn't need to have participated in the qualifiers and can be any accepted Pixels Camp attendee.
If two qualified participants choose to form a team, then the next participant in line gets qualified automatically and will be asked to form a team. If a team fails to appear on stage, then the next team in line will be called. So, keep your eyes open, your brains ready, and emails from the quizmaster out of your spam folder.
