The Pub Quiz so nice, we're doing it twice! A new batch of questions for a new evening. You're welcome to join us no matter whether you attended Wednesday evening's session or not. You're encouraged to mix up the existing teams and choose new team names. Teams are also encouraged to leave an empty chair at their table; you never know who might drop in during the game!

What is C++ Pub Quiz, you ask? It's trivia night CppCon style — five rounds, ten questions per round. Write down your team’s answers on a sheet of paper and turn it in at the end of the round.

Remo's "table" system seems ideal for this, so here's the deal: We'll meet in this event's Remo room at the scheduled time. Join a table near the front of the room with whoever you want to be on your team; turn on your mic in Remo. In the Remo general chat, I'll post a Google Meet URL and a Google Form URL. Open the Google Meet in a second tab; turn off your mic in Google Meet.

Each team should pick a team name, and designate a "team captain" who will use the Google Form to submit their answer sheet at the end of each round.

I'll read each round's questions into the Google Meet. (You will be listening in the Google Meet; or, you might designate a "team communications officer" who will be in the Meet with their mic off and their speakers on, relaying the audio through to everyone at their Remo table. Either way should work.) During the round, feel free to converse with your teammates around the table. At the end of the round, the "team captain" will submit your answer sheet via the Google Form, and we'll have a short break while I tally the scores.

High score after five rounds wins both the game and the bragging rights!
