Wikia Qwizards: Zombie Edition

On Saturday, March 14, a special SXSW Zombie Edition of Qwizards was broadcast on and hosted live on the Geek Stage. Three Wikia superfans (hailing from the Walking Dead Wiki, the Dead Island Wiki, and the Image Comics Database) and 50 audience members faced off in a battle of ultimate trivia on all things undead, from outbreak defense to scientific zombie analysis. Questions about films, television, comics, books, and even real life were all fair game.

After the superfan round, audience winner Rion Pela came on stage to compete against superfan winner Peteparker, ultimately besting him to become the Ultimate Qwizard and a likely future zombie apocalypse survivor.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at SXSW. Check out the video recap below, and stay tuned for the next edition of Qwizards!
