QFIESTA Annual Quiz Festival on 3rd and 4th of August, 2019

“Do not, my friends, become addicted to water. It will take hold of you and you will resent its absence.” — Immortan Joe

We own no tankers, but we’re here to slake a different kind of thirst.

The Quiz Foundation of India — Chennai will hold its annual two-day jamboree of quizzing, QFIesta, on August 3-4. QFIesta will feature five quizzes, including a sports quiz cunningly spread over two days, just to punish those who insist on knowing the winners of the Upper Volta Chess Tournament 2012 (Plate Division) (Blind).

As always, prizes in cash and kind for the top three teams in every quiz are on offer, although we know you do this for the love of the game.

Details below, so that you can start backstabbing teammates and planning travel right away:
