Geek Off

ABOUT THE GEEK-OFFS

The Geek-Offs are Polaris’ answer to the uberquestion:  Who is the Geek to beat?  We take several universes of Trivia, take their best and brightest, and then pit them against each other in a bloody no-holds-barred grudge match (but not really, because we have to mind the carpets).  All for bragging rights and the certification approved by the Chairs that we have found the Geek-Off Champion for the year.

HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?

With much demand, and few slots, we operate on a first come, first serve basis.  First people to come, first people to step forth like brave lemmings and site before the room, and then the top few available for Sunday’s finale.  The judges do reserve the right, based on demand for spots, to decline people from competing in all Geek-Offs to make it to the Championships.  The judges would also like to make it known that we do accept bribes – we just don’t stay bribed.

HOW DO I SIGN-UP TO HELP WITH THE GEEK-OFFS?

The Geek-Offs are written, organized and run by a group of volunteers who attend the convention.  They recruit in person at the convention, or via TCON-News for positions when available.
