Conquest of the Suburbanites
Alex

Tonight's quiz had three teams. One team was the front of house staff, and the other two teams were some regular players at 3 Squares in Maple Grove who came down to celebrate the start of an early weekend. They were going to play as a single team, but seeing a lack of competition, they split up into two teams. It turned into a pretty laid back night for everyone involved as we came into the second half, but in the end, there had to be a winner, and The Help (the staff) pulled out a tie with Bitches Got Last to leave Dem Rough Riders in third. Being nice, the staff just said they would pass on winnings, so

I'm a technical writer by day, and a Quizmaster by night. When not quizzing, I'm generally playing video games OR playing one of a number of instruments (I play more than I have fingers) OR watching sports OR drinking. Note: that's not an XOR; I'm up to 3 of those at once.

That's right. Idaho!
Professor Truman

July’s First Thursday took place smack dab in the middle of a long run of 100+ degree days.  People were ready to go inside and relax with some AC for a while.  Good thing the Piper Pub has excellent AC.  The restaurant was full all night long.  We had 12 teams playing.  The quiz last night was epic.  Let get right to why. THERE WAS A ROUND ALL ABOUT IDAHO!!!!!!!!  Sorry I’m yelling, but we here in Idaho don’t always get the recognition other states do.  This week though, there were questions about Coeur d’Alene (I feel sorry for all the quizmasters out there who had no idea how to say it), the university that is located

The Weight Of 3/4 Of A New Found World
ChristopherRounsville

I'm like that guy Altas. You know, the one who holds the weight of the world on his shoulders? That's me. I have the job, no, the duty, NEIGH, the responsibility to list things in threes and insert a horsey sound somewhere in the middle of it all. But I take it all in with a quiet calm that you'd never expect. *shrugs* Quiz night!! Not all Quizzes are created equal, and tonight's adventure might be listed as one of the Top 5 All Time. First, I never had I thought I’d say the words “My Daughter’s Vagina” and “It’s Spanking Time” in the same sentence but thanks to the always glorious team names

"It's All Greek To Me!"
Chris

It's the day before the 4th so I won't bother you with tooooo much stuff right now, in the hopes that you will better spend your time daydreaming about all the beers and hot dogs and ice cream you're gonna shove into your collective maws in 24 hours. Looking at the team names from last night and you could've easily said "It's all Greek to me!" haha I kid, but for real some of the teams incorporated references to topical political things for once, and I thought it was just wonderful. Shouts to GREEKS WHO STINK PUB QUIZ, DEEP FRIED TRIVIA ON A STICK IT TO YANDOPOLUS, and GREECE'S FINANCIAL ADVISORS for applying levity to the work of

My Dixie Wrecked
RameyO'Brien

I've kept my mouth shut about the whole confederate flag thing but I just can't keep quiet on this. Tvland you have gone too far! To even imply that the Duke boys are even remotely racist is absurd! For those that don't know what I am talking about, tvland is stopping the airing of reruns of the Dukes of Hazzard, all because the General Lee has the confederate flag on it. It's named the General Lee for fucks sake; one of the greatest generals to ever live! (In fact, the North approached him to lead their troops, the reason he said no was that he didn't want to fight his home state of Virginia.)   I understand people wanting to do away with the flag because of certain history,

Now We're Quizzin' With Gas!
Thom Cich

The Coyote Cafe was alive with the sound of quizzing Thursday night!  We had by far our biggest, liveliest (is that a word?) crowd yet at the venue and we threw down one hell of a quiz.  You're always going to have some bumps along the way, though.  Like one particularly inebriated bar patron who liked to scream, "KATHY PARKER!!!" at the top of her lungs intermittently throughout the evening.  I wonder what her name was...   The interruptions weren't enough to shake your old QM, though.  In fact, I got a chance to work on my Spider-Man-esque quip game in the heat of battle.  So we turned a potential negative into a positive and all our players

Travelling, Ice Cream, and Crustacean
Dave

It was a busy night last night! 19 teams squared off against each other! Round 1 kicked off the night with a round on recently in stuff. It’s always kinda weird reading a question that has to do with Buffalo or the surrounding area. It’s pretty much a free point but it last night’s case the question was the bonus. Never before have I had so many people shove their answer in my face for the free beer. Congrats to The 4 B’s for scoring a perfect round! Round 2 featured an audio round on getting places. Congrats to Tall Problems for scoring a perfect round! Round 3 was a timed round on top Ben & Jerry flavors. Teams did well

You guyz! So many funs were had last night at McCabe's, what with the nice weather and the fun and the stuff and the people and the pudding. We had ourselves a nice sampling of new folks, as well, which is refreshing since I AM SO SICK OF LOOKING AT ALL OF YOUR DUMB FACES, you regulars. Our new loves might not have crushed the quiz in the same way you OLD BORING FACES do, since you're THERE EVERY WEEK, GODDAMMIT, but it was just a treat to get some new blood. Speaking of which, the team who sits in the corner where I can't see them and changes their name every week totally placed last night!

Aaron's been quizmastering since before you were born. He's occasionally hilarious when he's not being sort of a dick. Things that make him giggle include: Li'l Jon; gamboling puppies; the word "oatmeal." No idea why. He's doing preeeeeetty well for himself, thank you.

Even Quizzes Without Swearing Can Be Fun!
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

If you leave me now, you take away the biggest part of me. OHHHHHHHHHHH baby please don't go. If you leave me now, you take away the very heart of me. OHHHHHHHHHHH baby please don't go.   It was a Chicago kind of night, mixed in with some Joe Nichols in honor of the upcoming concert he'll be performing at the Greeley Stampede.   Also, Oingo Boingo ends in INGO. There's no arguing that. Did I say, “Hey everyone, this is a rhyming round!!” NO!! I did not. So stop your complaining and take it to the errorogenous zone if you think that anyone will actually care that you didn't get one answer right.

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

Independence day is upon us.  This creates a conundrum for Americans everywhere- what capitalist adventure is the best way to demonstrate my commitment to my country? The movies? Some kind of guided nature walk? Do I just get shitfaced for no apparent reason? Whatever your way of celebrating the fourth, remember, don’t do anything stupid.  Your first goal is to survive.  Then you can make bad decisions from there.   That’s my disclaimer.     Pop goes punk is a really good album for you to study our music round, and never forget that Kelly Clarkson would never let herself be subjected to those horrible covers.   The

  An unexpected but totally welcome turnout at Crafthaus Brewery this week. Our Independence day is upon us and I am happy to be born and raised in a country that celebrates proper. Get in the fast lane Grandma, we’re blowing shit up. Japan must be sweating, it’s our weekend baby! Go go USA Yanks! Yes, a tinge of jingoism.   A question came up over summer solstice but this one involved Iceland. I come from a place called the Land of the Midnight Sun, so I’m all too familiar with the subject.

Never to Recap Again
KatePayne

Beware the harpies' cry. That was the lesson learned from round seven following a harassing yet poignant synopsis of famous television shows. The entire bar cringed in terror. But besides the aural pain, a fantastic match was had with Astounding Ass Pounding taking the lead (are these names ever not dirty?). Sigourney's Beaver (finally a clean one) did very well for themselves as well, coming in second. Perhaps their only false move was using the joker on the second round instead of the last. Because who would have guessed the second round would be all alternative rock covers? Few would guess that such horrifying covers even existed, let alone would

Owl Facts Too: Electric HOOgaloo...
Dark Lord of Quiz

FACT: Owls are carnivorous and, to a point, cannibalistic. Granted, you won’t see an owl portraying Hannibal Lecter in a community theater production of “The Silence of the Lambs” anytime soon (though I would pay several American dollars to witness this) but because they’re carnivorous predators, they will totally feed on other birds if a rabbit or squirrel isn’t runnin’ around come owl dinner time. You read that correctly: OWLS WILL TOTALLY EAT OTHER BIRDS. I would venture to guess that an owl would totally eat another owl if the circumstances presented themselves. No mention of Chianti, though.

Growling the Night Away
JC Rockafeller

Well that has to be the new record for the loudest, rowdiest quiz I’ve ever hosted. We had a pretty packed house, and everybody brought the energy tonight. This also takes the record for the most teams I’ve ever had in one of my quizzes, so thank you for that! I had a blast filling in for Tyler, and hopefully I can do it again sometime. Quizzes in the suburbs and quizzes in Boston are two different animals altogether!   We had a lot of great teams come out tonight, but I want to take a minute to single out two teams that are very special to me as a quizmaster. Not that I don’t love all the rest of you, but hear me out. These two teams just happen to be

I was born and raised in the wastelands of Western Massachusetts, moving to Boston in 2001 to pursue a dream of rock stardom.  When that didn't work out, I took a job in the software industry and was seduced by the life of the geek.  I love music (metal in particular), movies, video games, and I really want to get into D&D if I can find a good DM.  I've been playing Geeks Who Drink quizzes for about two years, and recently decided to take the leap and become a Quizmaster myself.  Here goes nothing!

I usually give teams a point if they are celebrating a birthday.  Well, I gave everyone a free point on my birthday.  Putting my

Support Your Local Whatever
SuperMallory

It has come to my attention that some folks may not understand how important it is to support events in your local area. And by events, I mean nightlife events: quizzes, comedy shows, improv, theater, concerts, dance-thingies. Dudes! It is sooooo important! You have to do it often, and you have to do it local.   I know there are huge bands who go through Denver, and big comedy acts, and that you are not gonna always win a prize at quiz, and that’s ok – those are good excuses. I’m just saying, I think it is important to support the people in your town in doing what they love. When you pay like 70 bucks to see a huge act in Denver, that person is

Mallory is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Mallory was depicted in ancient seals of the Poudre Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some translations have rendered with the word Mallory.

The earliest description is from Ctesias who, in his book On India, described Mallory as fleet of foot, having a horn 27 inches in length, and colored white, red and black. Aristotle must be following Ctesias when he mentions two one-horned animals, the oryx and the so-called "Mallory".
