ESC Pubquiz 2022

The local Viennese skeptics society “Gesellschaft für kritisches Denken” will host a skeptical pubquiz in the framework of the ESC. Herewith you are cordially invited to attend the pubquiz for a fun evening with international skeptics! Below, we give details on the place and time of the quiz and briefly explain what will await you.

As the name tells, the quiz questions will all be related to topics that skeptics commonly deal with. To ease planning of the event, we ask you to inform one of the organisers by e-mail ( about your participation or a message to the Vienna Skeptics via their Facebook page:

The pubquiz will take place on Thursday, September 8, i.e., on the evening before the ESC starts. It is therefore a prime occasion to get to know other ESC participants and to network with them. The place is in the basement of the pub Aera (Gonzagagasse 11, 1010 Vienna). This is not far from the ESC venue. We will start at 20:00 and plan to finish the quiz within one hour. Afterwards we will go through the correct answers together. Doors open at 7pm, so there is ample time before and after the quiz to have dinner and drinks in the pub, as well as to get to know other European skeptics.

Since we would like to stimulate networking among participants, we will form teams at random as you appear at the pub. Therefore, you should not form teams beforehand. There will be prices for (at least) the first three teams!

To summarise the hard facts:

Place: Basement of the pub Aera, Gonzagagasse 11, 1010 Vienna
Time: September 8, 2022, 20:00, doors open 19:00
