Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

There have been a couple of rounds lately that are quite well done…well, they’re all pretty well done, but I’m talking specifically about the recent “three word clue” rounds.  The gist is this:  I read a clue that is 3 words long, and the first letters of each of the words is a clue to the answer.  Tonight was airport codes and cities.  It was a very cool round.  I really enjoyed how tonight’s round 8 jumped around a bit.  Question 6 asked about some Bible quotes, and question 8 asked “Transformer or Gay Porn Star”?  So let that be a lesson, kids…when prepping

Good evening superstars! Thanks for joining me for quiz. It was nice to see your friendly faces and to have some heavy completion.   Shout out to Hannah our Sunday eve manager and head of Fearless and Female, you are a powerhouse of geek knowledge. Also, your Spinal Tap tattoo is amazing. It is truly an eleven!   Favorite round was two with DJ POTUS. Obama’s playlist is full of jams. I am thinking I am going to add a few to my falling for fall autumn mix. If you have not listened to it yet, get on it. Alright have a great week, Andrea

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Andrea

     It was like old times tonight! Some former employees of O'Niell's stopped by to say hello and it was totally a blast from the past!  Glad to see you are all doing well and thanks for not being strangers!      As for the quiz, I'm pretty sure we were all still hung over from the Harry Potter quiz last night! We had it right here at O'Niell's and this place was filled to the Sorting Hat! We even have figured out how to wire for sound next door at Rob's Place, so we were able to accomodate more quizzlings. The scores were pretty fair for the most part. You are all welcome for the Transformer/Gay Porn questions. Four easy questions since

HOLY. SNITCHES. What a night! So many teams, so many costumes, so much fun! And a great cash prize too. You guys really brought it. There were some collectible prizes that weent out, including some hand-made snitches by your Defense Against the Sexual Arts teach, Hufflepuff Hammer. So, lets get to it. We opened Round 1 with a series of questions on Quidditch. Our high score for that round was SPUG, who got a 6. Then we moved on to our first audio round (people saying Potter) and since it was only 8 points, no jokers yet. SPUG again had the high score, this time of 7. We then moved in

Hey everybody!  My name is Richard Rasner, but I used to be known as "The Quiz Pimp" (a nickname given to me on my first day ever on the job as a GWD QM.) I'm the guy up on the old-fashioned microphone calling out your quiz and playing awesomely terrible music during the scoring breaks.  These days a new venue change means a new nickname, so now I'm apparently The Quizmaster General.

When I'm not Quizmastering my day job is as a fine art nude photographer under the moniker "Unique Nudes" -- That's right, my day to day life is taking pictures of naked people all over the world. And if that doesn't make you hate me enough, I also photograph live music, and spend my evenings hanging out backstage with rock stars such as Billy Idol, NIN, Papa Roach and more.  You can check out my Facebook if you don't believe me, but sadly it's all true.  I'm not just a geek, I'm one of the rare super-cool geeks.

So why be a Quizmaster?  Because I love quizzes and I love all of you.  That's right, without my players I would be nothing.  Your amusing team names and crazy banter keep me coming back week after week.  So keep coming! Keep talking to me! And win those fabulous prizes!

-- Quizmaster out.

David

Tonight started off a little slow at Flipper’s Tavern, with a con happening and back to school for those seeking higher education and I thought the venue might cancel…but thankfully out of the rain came quizzers! What a night it was, between a Biz Markie sing along to discussing how frustrating it was back in the 90’s to pleasure yourself to online porn (buffering anyone?). The quiz took us to a few cities and airports that some of us may never visit. Plus, I had no idea that URANUS was the GOD OF THE TITANS!  He seems to always be the “butt” of planet jokes and now I guess he deserves more respect, but you know it’s hard to resist a good “Uranus”

That’s right, I’m borrowing from a team name for this one – they said it better than I could. Probably because they’re bigger Harry Potter nerds than I – which is misleading unto itself, really - I’m not at all a Harry Potter nerd. I’m a big fan of quizzes and trivia, though, so this themed quiz was a blast even if I barely know what a Dumbledore is. So a huge thank you to everyone who made this possible, I think our first themed-quiz was damn successful - $260 successful (congrats to Lovegood’s Hand of Glory, btw). The folks at Geeks Who Drink were awesome enough to take a chance and expand these themed quizzes here;

More fun than a barrel of Weasleys!
Major Tom

As I told everyone last night, I love Pub Quiz in general, but I really love themed Quizzes. A big group of nerds all getting together to celebrate something we all love and have in common. It's a beautiful thing, and I think it's my natural environment. I love that people dress up, or at least put on their topic-related t- shirts. I love that the crowds are big, and that there's a palpable energy about the place. I love the creative team names, and the laughs that they get. I love getting creative coming up with drink coupons or other prizes. I love seeing pictures of what other Quizmasters across the country did for their Quizzes. The cheers, the laughs, the boos, all the reactions from

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Harry Potter Theme Quiz
Tyrannosaurus Jess

I was first introduced to Harry Potter at the tender age of 11, in Mr. Cramer’s 6th grade class. This was in 1998. A girl in my class had Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and my teacher read it to us during snack time. We all listened, captivated, about the story of the boy who lived, and his friends Ron and “Her-mion” (because no one knew how to pronounce Hermione back then). And thus began my obsession.   I am not sure what it is about my family, but we like standing in line for things. I have stood in line for the release of every Harry Potter book from Chamber of

The prophecy came true! As it was foretold, lo, many people did descend upon Spats for an evening of Harry Potter quizzing, and many a good time was had! At least, I hope that was the general feeling. No mere 'trivia' evening was this; our Geeks Who Drinks High Quizmasters had assembled eight rounds of perplexing questions that would challenge even the most diligent muggle, let alone a fledgling Hogwarts student. This was a true test, tougher than the Triwizard Tournament, harder than a horcrux and smarter than Hermione on steroids. With a packed house assembled in every nook and cranny of Spats' Jungle Room, and quizzing decrees decorating the walls, we began with a simple,

What a delightfully magical fun Harry Potter quiz we had at Tap Root! There were lots of people, lots of laughs and some sweet ass prizes. In our first place was Quizeners of Azkaban and only one point behind them in second place was Optimistic to the Point of Foolishness. Lots of other prizes were given away, such as 3rd place (Gryffinpuff) and Not Last (I Love Harry Potter, I'm Surius). Not even to mention our costume contest. Thanks for coming out, guys!

Everybody Loves Luna
Your Best Friend Rachel

Yesterday at our Fifth Geek Cauldron: A Harry Potter Quiz, Luna Lovegood once again killed it in the Costume Contest, taking home a pretty cool prize and winning the hearts of basically everyone playing Quiz at Vetted Well. What IS it about Luna that makes her such a fan favorite!? Is it her spacey, child-like, harmless personality? Is it her eclectic sense of style? Does she remind us that you can be a little crazy on the outside but be pretty damned smart and resourceful and there to help someone when they need it most? Luna always says the right thing at the right time, and it's never the thing you'd expect. When Dobby dies, Luna says the perfect thing. We're

Training Like The Blues Brothers
J.D.

At least that's the way it felt this weekend at TJ Elliott's in Bowie, MD where I was putting some of the finishing touches on my buddy and soon-to-be new quizhost, Mighty Matt Fisher. Matt did an outstanding job of co-hosting tonight, in fact, so much so that I believe this kid might be a natural. After having two party fouls of spilled drinks on one of the tables we were using and one of the drinks taking out my laptop, the first few rounds and the video round were dependant on Matt ..and he knocked it out of the park without batting an eye. I expect great things from this guy as a quizhost. *The Thought for the Week

The regulars at Chelsea Pub & Lounge, Hermosa Avenue, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much. That is until the place was taken over by fanatic Harry Potter fans. In fact, there were so many quizzers, we had to spill over into the adjoining bar. Like tributes in the Tri Wizard Tournament, every team gave it their all, culminating in a single point difference between first and second. There were rounds on everything ranging from Quidditch to book chapters to magical creatures. The celebration did not stop with the quiz. Wizards and No-Maj alike

Quiz was difficult and not short on Thursday. Granted, quiz started a bit late because I showed up late. Usually I get home from work, crash for 20 minutes, throw on my quiz uniform (hilarious t-shirt, jeans and closed-toed shoes cause y'all are gross hicks), and Uber on up to Fuzzy's. This week started no differently, and I was on my way out the door when I realized, fuck, I couldn't find my fucks. Now, usually I keep my fucks by the door so I don't forget them, but my fuck rack was barren of fucks. Did I leave them in my car? Nope, the fuckholder was empty, as was the fuckbox. "Shit," I thought, "where the fuck are my fucks? I know I didn't

What you lacked in actual Harry Potter knowledge you made it up in enthusiasm and mediocre team names. Seriously guys, two Neville Gonna Give Your up, Neville Gonna, and several snitch related names...dudes. It’s like..did you not understand how hilarious these names could be?
