CALLING ALL NYC KNOW-IT-ALLS and GEOGRAPHICAL GEEKS! Come to world’s only geographical trivia-based game night involving the world’s largest panorama – The Panorama of the City of New York! Participants will compete in teams of 10 (more or less ok!) to test their knowledge of New York City geography.

The Panorama Challenge involves audio clues and laser-pointers highlighting assorted NYC landmarks, bridges, neighborhoods, parks and more. Its your team’s job to identify all 30 locations. Laser-wielding tour guides from The Levys’ Unique New York! will make sure all present can see the location as the audio clue is explained out loud.

This year, Quizmaster Jonathan Turer has devised two levels of all new questions! Teams will be divided up into New York Novices and Panorama Pros, and every single geographical query with have two answers – one for the newbies and one for the seasoned aces. Which means that each team will have 2 chances to win.

There will be Essay Questions! Last year the creative answers in this category made the difference between winners and runners-up. This year the essay challenges should prove to be just as fun and just as crucial as last year. This year will also have song clues for those steeped in NYC’s musicology.

Our panel of All-Star Judges include the Dean of NYC Tour Guides Lee Gelber; NYC Know-It-All Andy Sydor & Webmaster and Author of Forgotten-NY Kevin Walsh. All three will be on hand to call the too-close-to-call answers as well as adjucate any quibbling (remember our critical rule #1: NO QUIBBLING!)

Victors will be crowned in each division; Novices and Pros. The triumphant Pros will see their team name join those of legendary past winners when it is added to the Museum’s Champions Trophy.

Whats more, our wonderful friends at the Brooklyn Brewery will be providing tasty beers, available by donation, samples of whiskey from Kings County Distillery, the first distillery in NYC since Prohibition for donations, plus sandwiches for sale from Hope Deli, on Havemeyer and Hope streets.

There will be a free shuttle travelling between the QMA and the Mets-Willets Point 7 stop.
