Wannabe Jeopardy competitors can hone their skills and win cash money at Smackdown!, a weekly trivia game that pits teams against each other on topics of pop culture, academia, and grammar. Host Andy Bob keeps it fast-paced and risque, with two rounds of action building up to a final question. Sign in is at 8 p.m. and the $5 cover contributes to the winner-take-all pot. If there's a show at The Bottleneck, the alternate venue is Conroy's Pub. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Game starts at 8:00 p.m.

Your team can be as large or as small as you choose, but generally each team has about four players. Most players dislike playing on really large teams. More isn't always better when it comes to trivia contests. Remember too that the winning team splits the pot. Thus, if the kitty is, say, a hundred bucks, a team of two would win $50 apiece; a team of ten would win $10 apiece. And, yup, if you want to play as a team of one, giddy up.

Also, please note: Team sign-in begins at 7:30, and the game starts at 8:00. Things start a little earlier nowadays so that the trivia dorks will be out of the way in time for karaoke, which starts at 10:30
