What is a four letter word
Devin

Hey, quiz night! I'll keep this intro short, I'm busy practicing my pronunciation of German words so I don't embarrass myself next time. Ginormous is definitely a word. Trust me. I'm a wordologist. Seoul is not always easy to remember how to spell. But don't worry, I won't spelling errors against you. I mean, we're not Seoul-less. I mean, soulless. I know! I didn't realize Natalie Imbruglia wasn't the original singer of Torn either! But here's Ednaswap's version of it. How do so many of you know what a Zonk is? I mean really? Is this something everyone knows, but I just never picked

Changed up the jams today...we went for Beastie Boys instead of 90's Pop and can I just say, it was intergalactic. You know what was a bit more planetary though? A whole round dedicated to Asia. I mean, you can't really ever run out of questions to ask when a continent covers 30% of our planet.  It was definitely difficult to tell if Tracy Flick is more presidential sounding than Hillary Clinton, but I mean, damn, they both had some inspirational quotes to live our daily mediocre lives by. Tracy Flick was just such an overachiever! Breaking the glass ceiling and all. One regular quizzer got laughably excited with that Gwyneth Paltrow/Hook question. I think all the other

The Elegant Donated Coiffure Of Derek Smalls
Captain Pigglesworth

Sometimes a quiz really comes together. On those nights, the air is electric with anticipation and the bloodlust of keen quizzers. Everyone's a superhero. Everyone's a Captain Kirk. And then there are nights like tonight, when everyone is far more interested in boozing and having a good time writing wrongs that are oh so right. Hot damn, that was like poetry what I just did there. And so was tonight's quiz at Flight On Eagle Mountain Lake. Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. It's rarely fun to be horribly incorrect, but with the right crowd of people it can be a hell of a good time, even

Where in the hell did all of you people come from tonight? We packed Halcyon to the gills tonight. It was definitely comfy cozy way at the back of the bar. I thank all of you for coming out and playing with us. Did any of you love watching Bloodsport as much as I did growing up? I swear I saw that movie a few dozen times. It was by far the best movie Jean Claude Van Damme every did. Sadly, it was one of his very first films. So, yay? Sure he had some good movies that grossed a lot more than Bloodsport, but let's face it, Bloodsport was the best. He should have just called I quits after that one. I know it would have saved me from

Greetings, salutation, and welcome my faithful quiz bunnies! It was another sticky night out on the patio, but nothing that a few frosty beverages couldn't take care of! Tonight promised some exciting quizness for everyone, so let's get to it. We got things off to a good start with the round on facts about Asia, and the audio round was a hit as well! I didn't seem to trip up anyone with those covers of popular songs! And I still don't know who the hell Ednaswap is. Just Sayin'. My teams didn't do too bad identifying the Clinton vs Flick quotes, which is pretty good because some of those were super tricky! Unfortunately, things seem to go downhill in the next few rounds.

To Boldly Quiz Where No One has Quizzed Before
Lyss

Nine teams came out to Byway Brewing’s very first quiz night. To my delight, each one came with high energy, strong quiz savvy, and fond appreciation of BDSM. Byway brought the party with killer brews n’ food in their brewroom, and the geeks brought the genius. We all learned an important lesson: It’s times like these when we should be watching less of the presidential election coverage, and watching more Reese Witherspoon movies. Word to Hegewisch Hillbillies – who was actually just one hillbilly – a lone ranger of quiz who managed not to place last. Sending me all of those other four-letter-words, was

Alex

We welcomed several first time teams this week, and they picked a great day to visit, because *insert “The Jerk” voice* THE NEW ANSWER SHEETS ARE HERE! I had heard they were coming, but seeing them in person was quite impressive.  Full Color… Dual Sided… Perforations… now I can look legitimate.  However, I’m pretty sure all pretense of professionalism was erased the moment the new teams heard my screeching, gasping voice. And tonight’s teams pushed me to the limit!  It seemed like it might be a quiet night with just 16 teams tonight but boy did things

I'll Penetrate YOUR Great Wall of China
Mitchicus Mathematicus

It was a dark and stormy night. From the torrents and the hellscape biome that is the monsooning desert, brave souls emerged, wrought with moisture, for a chance of respite. Instead, they found quiz. I want to thank each of you for making tonight's quiz possible; without you, who knows what might have transpired? Among the many questions we asked tonight, both related and not related to quiz:Wait, Natalie Imbruglia wasn't the first to sing "Torn"? Nope. It was an LA Alternative band called Ednaswap. They were gonna release it themselves, but the Aussie's version was released first. The group disbanded soon after. What is that smell of rain?

Howdy, all. Mitch here. I'm an Arizona-grown U of A alum with a job teaching students that Math doesn't have to suck. I've been quizzing with friends for three years and have been loving it ever since. Now as a QM, I just need to work on the whole talking and blogging thing. 

I am a huge retro gamer. I should have won the Star Fox Weekend leather jacket as a kid, and I did win a Nintendo Wii playing Guitar Hero. I'm sadly lacking in knowledge of all the "cool" games kids play these days, but I'm still down with the classics. I'm also a fan of bad movies and mozzarella cheesesticks. 

Other life accomplishments include being published in "Highlights" magazine, going on Wheel of Fortune, meeting Walter Jones the power ranger, beating Super Metroid in 80 minutes with 100% completion, and never going to Senior Prom.

Tonight we bid one of our most loyal quizzes adieu before he abandons us for law school. Mike of Fassbender's Dick in Shame came out for one final quiz of the season. He provided tonight's phenomenal playlist (the overlap between his and mine is sort of uncanny) and brought his team to a solid 2nd place finish while chanting KUMITE through round 7. We're gonna miss you, buddy.    Behind the scenes tonight was Scorekeeper Nancy's deep dive into #Chemtrails. She is going to learn as much as she can and will report back next week with why Chem trails are silently killing us. If you, loyal quiz summary reader, have any information, please see us

I Never Meant To Be So Bad To You
Kersimus

We're back again with another fantastic quiz at Owen O'Leary's this week. From four letter words to rule 63 cover songs, our 12 teams tested the depths of their knowledge to their extreme limits. We'll see who was the Marianas Trench and who was just an inflatable kiddie pool in just a bit.We started the night off with a quick round about Asia, and boy did we cover a lot of ground. I'm sorry, I'll show myself out. But not nearly as sorry as I am for getting the song stuck in your head with the title. We did dive into the Urdu language, with the word for dust colored, khakis. Which being a Massachusetts bar, means the things you use to start your car. I swear that's the last one.

Well, it’s the week after the RNC.  Cleveland is still standing, and we are still alive. We live to drink another day, and so we celebrate.  WE CELEBRATE LIFE.  With booze and a pub quiz.  It’s the only way to celebrate anything really.   Although this was a tricky quiz to come back to.  It may have started out fine.  We learned about Asia and just how ginourmous it is.  And we had gender swapped covers for the audio round.  So far so good. Things got a little trickier when we had to distinguish which quotes were said by Hillary Clinton and which were

Been awhile since I’ve hosted at Glass Half Full, but it was a fun filled evening for one and all! We started the evening with Happy wishes for a Birthday Boy and dived right into the first round and moved into a bit of karaoke hijinks that turned into a heated discussion involving Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac.  We chose to “Pick Flick!” while getting Zestfully clean, before a bit of flatulence from the Purple One. The next round was a bit chilly but we heated things up with a bit of BDSM and wrapped it all up with the usual Random Knowledge! Eight rounds came to an end and the top three teams were rewarded for their efforts. Third place went to “When they go

Wow! What a great greeting back from a vacation and a quick break due to a private event.  We had a great time tonight with some old teams and some new ones. Today we realized just how similar Hillary Clinton and Tracy Flick are, some crazy german word that created the term "flack, and how those busts really looked absolutely nothing like the actual Beatles ("Show me which one is John Lennon? I don't see him!" exclaimed my friend Mary.) Our top three spots remained fairly constant until the end but our last place spots went all over the place with Disco Raccoons taking the last place spot after some truly horrible math and them forgetting the

Flugabwehrkanone = Actual. German. Word.
Killer B

Well quizzers, we're almost there! Bill Clinton is on his way to being back in the White House! In a way that's far more exciting, at least from a what's going to happen sense, than electing Hillary. In an even crazier possible scenario, someone explained to me today that if Gary Johnson wins Florida (unlikely), Trump and Hillary could end in an electoral tie and the House could then elect Johnson as President of the United States. Not fully unprecedented. Thomas Jefferson was elected by the House after Alexander Hamilton was able to convince enough Federalist that Burr was batshit and that even though he disagreed with Jefferson's principals it was better to elect someone with differing principals

I'm Blake Ritchen and I became a Quiz Master for the power. Nowhere else in my life can I tell people not to fuck with me so calmly or without chance of altercation. As a substitute teacher I'm supposed to stay away from words like that, though from the number of elementary students who've told me I look like the guy from The Hangover I'm going to assume they've heard that and worse. The power is intoxicating. I get to choose what music you listen to, what prize to award for the email bonus question (from the prizes given to me to award), and in which inflection I will read each question. I also get to drink for free, meet new people, tell jokes, yada, yada, I'm boring myself.
I have spent more and and more time recently with my new best friend, Netflix. If you dropped your Netflix plan over their failed summer business plans you're nuts. Why don't you just move to western Pakistan because the IRS was a week late on your tax return? Seriously, it's amazing and has made me much happier than any real person in my life ever could. I've prepared for the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead, a life in menial jobs with The Office and Party Down, and there's a movie where nun's get totally naked. Get a friend Netflix for the holidays or a birthday, or just give them your password so you don't have to spend another eight dollars a month.
I teach, I quiz, I master, I bait fish hooks when I visit my grandfather in Minnesota, I read but have recently just been waiting for the movie to come out, and I've lived in Denver my whole life. I also work at a sports bar and basically have the job of changing channels for people, an easy enough job most days but it has made the target of many a crazed sports fan who is unwilling to turn his head at all to watch his game. Still, I love it, and like I said at the start, I like having the power.
