Your Mother's a Horcrux
Patsquatch

Another Harry Potter quiz has come and gone and tonight was a doozy. So many teams wanted in on the quiz that we had to have two venues going. With 22 teams, Arizona Beer House was packed to the gills with some teams brining their own chairs and others taking to the floor picnic style. Floor sitting was not ideal but it did go to show how hungry for competition this Potter fans were. Teams tonight went a bit light on costumes but we did have some badass ones for our costume contest. A lovely Ravenclaw student took first place with an equally lovely gender-swapped Sirius Black taking second. A sorting hat with a Fawkes t-shirt on rounded out our third place.  The costume contest

Sorry, the Harry Potter Quiz is at the OTHER O'Niells
QM Rebecca

I was totally expecting a small crowd since the Harry Potter quiz was happening at the "other" O'Niells, but we still had a whopping 17 teams here tonight!  Hot damn! Here are some of my favorite highlights from the night… Favorite Team Names: I Drink and I Know Things - I'm a bit partial to this one because I happened to be wearing a tank top that said the exact same thing.  On a side not, I actually got to meet George R. R. Martin this weekend at Bubonicon.  How cool is that?!?!? She's a Whorecrux - When I read this team name I keep hearing the song "She's a Brick House".  I also like the play on

Saturday night is the quizziest night of the week
MikeSchramm

Saturday night is for quizzing, as a room full of quiz players came out to Left Coast to answer some questions. The usual host Conrad was out of town and was missed, but quiz rolled right along. We had questions about TV shows (that had to be named according to their episode titles), Michael Jackson collaborators, bread, and great things, and from rounds one to eight, points were scored, beers were drunk, and a great time was had.  One of the most fun questions of the night was which sports Hall of Fame Abraham Lincoln belongs to. Plenty of teams guessed that he played track, and other teams guessed hockey and rodeo. It turns out that Honest Abe was actually a wrestler, however,

Album Challenge Week 4: Matter
DJ ROB ROB

As a writing exercise and for the fun of it, for an undetermined amount of time my Saturday night blogs from The Ute and Yeti will feature a review of an album that I listened to for the first time all the way through the previous week. Matter by St LuciaAs with most synthpop musicians, it's easy to compare them to 80s music or at least recognize that their influences stem from that. Listening to the genre for so long I can typically differentiate between the two and determine what's modern sound. However with St Lucia, it's pretty difficult NOT to talk about how much their music comes straight out of the 80s. The synths and lyrics still

This Quiz Made Me Want Bread
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome to the blog, where I tell you all the funny things that happened Saturday night at Darcy’s. Tonight, round 6 was definitely my favorite round of the evening. The theme of round 6 was “This Round is Not Gluten-Free” and it was all about different kinds of delicious bread from around the world. Naan, Ciabatta, Sourdough. I like to think that Oprah and I have a lot of things in common, one of which is our love of bread. Oprah’s my girl. She really gets what is important in life. I’m just saying that I love bread and hopefully there will be more bread-themed rounds in the future. Also, I should eat dinner

These Names Were Safe
NateFincher

Ok, so we all know my kryptonite is phonetic pronunciations, but luckily I’d seen all the movies so I at least had a heard memory of these wacky names. Even though…I really gotta wear my contacts when I read trivia! I’m getting old and these eyes is a-goin…No worries though, I won’t stop doing this until I’m completely blind! I love that so many new faces come out for the themed nights. It’s a completely different flavor of crowd. And surprisingly, a lot of my regulars didn’t show (yeah you, the guilty one reading this!) and even some of the pre-registered folk bailed! But hey, less competition for those that did show!

Neville Gonna Let You Down is a Total Misnomer Because He Will Never Let You Down
JamieAnderson

The telltale sign of the skill of (some of) our quizzers is the close ranking at the top, with the top eight teams separated by five points. Running the numbers, Round 1 and Round 6 were the hardest rounds, but there were some impressive numbers on all of them, with three teams getting jokered 13s in Round 8.   I have to thank my fellow quizmasters: Julie the photo queen and re-reader of rounds for those in the bad speaker section; Edge for the speedy entering of

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream.

Hello, all you Muggles masquerading as Witches and Wizards! It was a spectacular and eventful afternoon at HopCat Detroit! The questions were tough and specific, but you rose to the challenge and did quite well! There were almost 100 people in attendance- you really packed the place!   So, you know, there we were, almost finished with the quiz, when someone cast a spell and knocked out the power! I suspect Nargles are to blame. But we finished up what was a very close race up to the end and proved that the well-timed use of a Joker is critical!

Snitches for everyone!
SeanO'Shea

What an awesome themed quiz! 8 rounds of Harry Potter Quizzardry! We had 30 teams come out to dual here in NYC and everyone brought their A game. One of my scorekeepers, Nancy, made "homemade" chocolate snitches and we tossed them around the bar, as well as ties with the different house colors on them for everyone. There were cheers and laughs throughout! And of course, there were sighs and moans when we got to those "too soon" types of questions... like about certain characters who have snuffed it. The [Half Blood] Artist Formerly Known as Prince led the muggles and won with 84 points! And they walked away with $280! Not too shabby! Coming in second

When your wiener's happy, you're happy.

"Settle down, butt-munch." As soon as I saw these words as the title for our Round 7, I knew we had a very special Quiz in store tonight. I loved Beavis and Butt-head in the 90's (I even saw the movie in the theater), and it turns out that being an adult with a more complex and sophisticated sense of humor doesn't mean I don't completely lose it when Beavis starts laughing about "happiness" containing the word "penis". I'm pretty sure the quizzers at Harvey's were laughing as much at my reaction as they were at the clips. Beavis and Butt-head nostalgia wasn't the only fun round at Quiz tonight, though. We had a round on great things, a round on bread (and no, Mike Needs

Nearly 80 players came out to see who was the wisest wizard, and you folks came to game! And while it was an incredibly difficult challenge, one team ended up rising above the rest. Your winners today are You're A Quizzard, Harry!

Their knowledge gave them a 4-point victory and earned them $190! The
