You think you’re a geek? Maybe you know Boba Fett’s middle name, or the specific yarn used to knit Freddy Krueger’s sweater. Maybe you know twelve different colors of Kryptonite, or can diagram Mario and Luigi’s family tree. But do you know all of the above without phoning a friend? If so, prove it! PUGS — The Phoenix Ultimate Geek Smackdown — returns to Phoenix Comic Fest for another epic tournament!

When in Time and Space will it occur?


In which 16 contestants are brutally whittled down to the final 8!

When: Thursday, May 24, 7:30 pm
Where: Room 122ABC


In which 8 Geeks enter and only one Geek leaves!

When: Friday, May 25, 7:30 pm
Where: Room 122ABC

(Same room for both… we just need a day to get the blood out of the carpet from the Qualifiers)

Think you’ve got what it takes?

If you’re coming to Phoenix Comic Fest (and if you’re not, you lose your Geek cred right there), then it’s free to enter! Just visit our PUGS signup form and cast your hat into the ring.

Got some good ideas for questions?

We’re looking for great debate questions in the areas of Gaming, Sci-Fi, Movies, Anime, Comics, Tech, Horror, and many more. If you think you have some fun questions from an area you really know well, submit them to our question idea page. The more creative, quirky, and thought-provoking the better!

If you have any other questions, comments, or ideas just email jeff@improvmedia.com
