First Quiz of the Fall Ya'll!
Eileen

First Sunday quiz of the fall ya’ll! Started off the evening with some upsetting news. About 15 minutes before quiz started, I read that Arnold Palmer passed away. So I did what any Quizmaster should do, and encouraged you to drink about it. Abby made up some “Mad Arnies” (Lemonade, Iced Tea and of course, VODKA). They were so delicious I almost forgot why I was sad! Anywhoooo… Yesterday was also a big day for celebrity birthdays, and that’s what Round 1 was centered on. Christopher Reeve, Barbara Walters, Mark Hamill, Donald Glover, Heather Locklear, William Faulkner, Glenn Gould, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones all had birthdays, and those

Couple things about me: I'm a man, and that means I do man things. I shit with the door open, I go on riverboat gambling trips, I make my own jerky. And now all of that is wrecked!

I lied. Not one of those things is true, but if it impresses you lets stick with it. I'll tell you something that is true though. Clint Eastwood once gave me the finger. True story.

Other things......I enjoy the color blue. I'm right handed, so I've got that going for me. I cannot say the alphabet backwards, even when I'm drunk. Which is a lot. Also I've never been to Oregon. My dreams are but three: 1. To appear on Jeopardy. Cause if we aren't here for trivia, what's it all for? 2. To appear on Drunk History. I got my degree and history, and thus far it's proved useless. Appearing on that show would make it all worth while. 3. To have a sandwich named after me. Who needs a kid sharing your name when you can have a sandwich.

 

Also I enjoy Pinky and the Brain cartoons, and if you talk shit about them or request that I play Kanye music during the game, your team starts with negative 50 points. Your call man.

Hey y'all! Thanks for another awesome quiz. Round One was all about yesterday's birthday children. Round Two was our audio round; this week, all of the song titles had the word "can't" in them. Round Three was a press-your-luck round where you had to use your process-of-elimination skills.  Round Four was all about sketch comedy and funerals. Round Five, the visual round, had you remembering some of your favorite movies. Round Six was all about liars and noses. Round Seven was our second video round, and this time

We’re back up and running strong at the North Bend Bar and Grill. So tell yo friends, tell yo wife, because we quizzing everybody up in hur! Good to see everyone out tonight. It’s like break never happened over the Summer and we picked up right where we left off. Good to see some familiar faces again like team Gypsy Mothra and Snakeduck. You all probably noticed some awesome changes that Geeks Who Drink recently implemented. The first of which is the awesome new colored answer packets. How great are those!?! They list the rules, easy to separate, promote our causes, and even give you a little spot on the back to write an answer down for

The Quizifesto
Daniel

It might be possible that I need up my tyranny over the quiz a bit. I think some teams are having too much fun. Quizzes aren't supposed to be fun. They are not a way to socialize and blow off steam after a week. They aren't for making jokes and laughter. Quizzes are about strict rules, and tough questions with quizmasters who have strict edicts that they lord over you with their superior intellect while you try and prove yourself worthy of their praise. They are not recreational. They are the opposite. It should feel like work. You should be sweating and panting afterwards. Quizzes are a competition of the highest degree where only the strong minded and stout willed survive. It should

Close Call
Dave

I think I played at least 4 songs form the Top Gun soundtrack at quiz without meaning to. Also, right after round 2 I had to jam out on some Hall & Oats. I can’t believe the bartender did not know who they were.  That is a classic bad, not an obscure reference at all. I would understand if someone didn’t know a band like The Cars, but Hall & Oats is like Dire Straits, or The Police. All of these bands were before my time, but obviously influential (to varying degrees) enough that I know there work, and I can likely guess at their work. Am I just old? Is someone thinking this same thing about Pearl Jam right now that was born in the 90’s? It was a one

Disappointment is When Not Enough People Get the Reference to P.C.U. in Tonight’s Visual Round
SuperDave

My quizzers are so gangsta. Each Sunday, during the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz I host at Kilkenny’s Irish Public House, I replay the music tracks in R2 when I review the answers, all in the hopes of sparking a sing-along vaguely reminiscent of a childhood campfire. And most weeks, the quiz content accommodates my silly and simple pleasure. This week was no exception, but there was a brief wrinkle. The biggest sing-along occurred during R7 – not R2.   See, the audio clips for R7 this week spliced together movie dialogue with a well-known song from the soundtrack of 8 different movies. And upon announcing that the title and artist

The only thing less popular than sports questions is when I play Poison songs
Mark

What up my clouds? Thanks for heading out to MacLeod Ale Brewing Co last night, it was a blast. Hope to see many of you back next week where we can share some beers, laughs, and a general hatred of sports-related questions. Even if they involve sports movies. If we learned anything at all last night, it's that champagne bottle sizes are more distinct than "small, large, and comically large." Who would've thought that Methuselah was a size? I thought it was a biblical thing. Though in fairness, I did not pay much attention in CCD class in my formative years. I'll take this blogpost as another opportunity to explain that teams consisting of more than 6 players MAY NOT win

"Piggy Gets the Donut Question"
Thorny AKA Quizmaster Wiz Biz

Greetings from another quiz at O’Possum’s! This week we talked about sketch comedy, death, meteorology, and rhinoplasty! Here are some things that we have learned: 2 is, in fact, a prime number. Having a late September birthday means your parents probably had steamy Christmas sex. I’m a Don Glover lover. Punk Rock Trucks would be a cool documentary, I guess. It’s less than 3 months until Christmas. What the actual fuck. I love a good Bloody Mary. This week we had a question about the chain restaurant

Waikiki Brewing Co - Third Times the Charm
Renee

Honolulu Geeks Who Drink Champions  Doug's Delayed Departure returned Sunday at Waikiki Brewing Co and maintained their status as the current reigning GWD Honolulu Champions. This supergroup was given a run for their money by Roahn Stahhp and Keeping up with the Jonses who showed that it doesn't take a big team to take home victory.  Not surprisingly for Hawaii, everyone recognized Elvis (Lilo and Stitch is true to life!) but '80s New Wave left us confused. Since the "drunk food" of choice in Hawaii is Zippy's (saimin is life) -  Denny's (just down the street) - left everyone scratching

It's Free Refill's World (At Plug Uglies) And We're Just All Living In It
Mike

This past Sunday at Plug Uglies was not one our busier games.  We only had 4 teams participating.  Hey listen, I get it. It's football season, it was the first chilly evening of the year.  No worries!  I just wish we could get a few more folks out! Anyway, we played.  Well I hosted.  The teams played.  And wouldn't you just know it.  Free Refills the resident geniuses of Sunday nights @ Plug Uglies won AGAIN!  I will have to go back and figure out how many wins that is.  If I had to guess I would say they've won between 30-40% of all games had at Plugs.  It's god damned impressive.

Beware the Radio
QM Colleen

I was on my way to make prints for quiz yesterday (the visual round, you know). I decided to turn on the radio. WXXI. Seems like a harmless decision, right? WRONG. It was a Ted Radio Hour I think... that or Radio Lab because I can never tell those dude's voices apart... but they weren't doing all the awesome sound stuff... anyway, it's not important to the story. They were talking about the tsunami in Japan from several years ago. Ok, a little depressing but interesting. Then they start talking about some dude who set up a shrine thing somewhere near where the tsunami hit. He called it an air telephone - basically it's a phone booth with a phone that is meant to connect

Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

But Not Too Much Integrity...
Jason

The late summer slump has apparently passed and th     ings are in full swing. We had a great turn out and it came down to a clincher between Make Trivia Great Again (formerly Bullshit and Shenanigans) and Luigi’s Better. The Luigi’s better skeleton crew managed to best Make trivia great again by three points. Which brings me to my first point. Although it’s rare that I make a scoring mistake but it has happened a couple of times. Such as last Wednesday when I gave Luigi’s a point more than they deserved. I can see bringing it to my attention if they’re were cheated out of points, but given too many? Just sit

La Bamba in La Brewery

The crowd was particularly anxious on Sunday at the Bronx Brewery as quizzing was on the minds of their thirsty patrons.  New quizzers from the cool city of Baltimore joined along as well.   We started with our day of birthdays, apparently September 25th is a popular day.  People such Faulkner, Locklear, and Walters have their stars aligned on this glorious day.  “I Can’t Even” revisited songs that could not, get, help, go, or be.  Quizzers bopped to these familiar tunes and fared well for the most part.   Round three pleased our quizzers as they were given options as what did not belong in a series of topics.  We were

Flames on the Side of My Face
Italian Galleon

There is no reason for this blog title besides the fact that Clue was in the quiz tonight, and I love it AND this line specifically.  A few years ago I had to figure out how to use YouTube so I could show all my younger officemates this scene – mostly so that they would understand why I said it every time I hung up my phone.  I say “figure out how to use YouTube” because once I asked my sister if I had to “download it off YouTube” and she has never let me forget it.  I am old, I don’t understand technology, I eschew everything that isn’t a paperback book.  Speaking of old, we had some good oldies for quiz answers tonight

Erika is a New York Italian who relocated to Denver in 2015 and found a quiz she liked before she met many people she liked. She has a BIG BORING CORPORATE job that almost refused her request to become a quizmaster on the side because Mrs. Boss Lady didn't "like the name Geeks Who Drink." Gag. As a child, she put on lip syncing concerts with the neighbors and made her parents sit through them. Being a quizmaster is her mid-30s equivalent of this outlet. Finally: Giants. Mets. WVU Mountaineers. Manchester City. Game of Thrones. Harry Potter. The Rock 'n' Roll music.
