Star Wars Geek Trivia Night

The Force was strong with all of you that night.

Are you ready for Star Wars references? Because this post has more Star Wars references than Slave Leia fanfics on the Internet (just kidding, that would be impossible).

When we look back on Star Wars Geek Trivia Night, what will we remember? Will it be the triumphant victory of Phil Shot First? Or perhaps the unexpected and torrential release of waste from the trash compactor Bonus Round Table Collapse of 2015? Maybe the outstanding costume participants whose ingenuity amazed us all? (Looking at you, Greedo and BB-8!)

Star Wars Geek Trivia Night!

Jammin' Java looked a bit like Mos Eisley Spaceport.

Top o' the mornin' to ya, BB-8!

ThinkGeek's Geek Trivia Night!

Congrats to Greedo on winning our Star Wars Costume Contest. You'd never know his face is made out of duct tape!

However we choose to remember it, Star Wars Geek Trivia Night was out of this universe.

Just minutes before The Incident.

Our AWESOME Costume Contest participants with the AWESOME Jammin' Java staff!

The questions were tough - like, surviving on Hoth without a dead Tauntaun tough - but (as always) you were all up to the challenge! From identifying Lightsaber hilts, to listing the dwarf planets, you all proved yourselves to be some of the most well-versed humans this side of the Outer Rim.

In the Bonus Round, we asked you to put away your brains and take more of a Solo-esque approach to things.

Geek Trivia Night also bid a fond (and a bit tearful!) farewell to Lily, our intrepid and resourceful organizer. We wish her the best of luck in the future, and may the Force be with her always.

We'll miss you, Lily! Good luck! <3

Keep a sharp eye out for tickets for the next Geek Trivia Night, where we will return to our regularly scheduled program (don't worry, there's always room for a bit of Star Wars trivia at regular GTN). Mark down August 19th in your calendars, and meet us back at our favorite wretched hive of music and trivia - Jammin' Java. Thanks all for making Star Wars Geek Trivia Night a great success, and we look forward to seeing all of you back in August!

While flowers and jewelry and breakfast in bed may be the traditional (and wonderful) ways a lot of people celebrate Mothers' Day, we thought it would be fun to give this upcoming holiday a touch more grit as well. So in the great tournament spirit, we'd like to pit some of our favorite moms from television against some of our favorite moms from the movies to see who most deserves the crown MOM SUPREME. Help us rank the list of moms below and we'll report back with the resulting matchups and winners next week!

Who do you think is the most "momtastic"?
