Don't Finish Last
KevinSpaulding

Many people come out on a weekly basis, vying to finish with the most points overall for the week to win for the night. Tonight I thought it wasn't any different, until I saw a team that named themselves "One Above Last". I cackled a little bit seeing this team, as they told me their strategy was to in fact, not finish first or last, but to finish one above last. They started out terribly, sitting in last place proving it is near impossible to actually pull out a strategy that makes you finish second to last. As the rounds go on, do you purposefully miss questions just to keep yourself at the bottom? When do you know when to get ones right? So many questions, but such little

Quiz at the Speed of Light
@TristanGregson

  My first night covering here at Idle Hour was an extremely warm and family feelings filled night of flirtatious flattering and fat F-alliteration. All right so that last little part didn’t exactly flow but thankfully our quiz from last night did. To elaborate the patio at Idle Hour is rather spacious but also rather popular with means it was filled with quizzers last night and meant a couple extras teams found themselves sitting behind my little quizmaster table setup making for a cozy quizzing environment last night.   Now everybody at Idle Hour was very friendly last night as I stumbled my way through covering a venue I’d never been to but

Beer Time!
RobertLove

Writing this on Friday, as it is difficult to get them done before going to bed the night of the quiz. Today I plan on going up to Roughtail Brewing as they will be releasing Citra Wet Hop which is a derivative of their Everything Rhymes with Orange. I am really looking forward to it and this is clear evidence that the changes in the brewery distribution laws is having a positive effect on the breweries in the area. I am really looking forward to what we will be seeing from all of the other local breweries. Speaking of great beers, I got to have some of the 2015 Backwoods Bastard last night after the quiz. I had been told that this beer was

Ain't No Sausage Party Like Ye Old Colonial Sausage Party
StorySlug

Because Ye Olde Colonial Sausage Party comes in first place.They triumphed amidst uncharted bits of new round types, including the all-new "Raise The Bar" round, where you got the number of points in the round as your hardest question.  So if you got question 7 right, but everything else wrong, you got 7 points anyway.  I actually used to pull the same thing in high school, getting an F in the class but a 100% on the final, so they had to give me a passing grade.This Team Goes To 11 came in second, which was shocking because their truly talented teammate moved away a month ago.  They're accomplishing their

There's an opposite side to "Those who can't do, teach."

That opposite side is, "Those who can do so well that they ruin it for everybody else by making them feel like there's no point in playing."

That's the way I am with quiz games.  I always get accused of cheating, and I always win the free drinks.

So, my new calling in life is to shepherd your weak, jiggly brains into the harsh light of knowledge - to every week pit the strong against the week, strengthening the herd, and ultimately deciding who is only a little bit not-as-smart-as-I-am.

Geeks Who Drink is the place to go...
The Quizmaster General

... to meet your husband's girlfriend?  (Actually, it's true).  Anyhow, we had another really fun night at HM last night, and it looks like our new start time is gonna be great from here on out. I already had a lot of comments about how much easier it was not fighting traffic and hurrying out of work. And there was still enough time to take advantage of Happy Hour. Oh yeah. Round 1 opened with Poodle Sushi taking the lead by 1 point. And then in Round 2 they jokered a 14 point score for the high of 28, pushing them WAY in to the lead early on. Husband's Girlfriend, though, wasn't

Yes, the mustache is real.

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.

Turns Out I Do Want to Hear That at a Bus Stop
Sweet Adam

Hello IGers! Compliments to our editors on a masterful Round 2 last night and to our quizzers with their just-not-right answers on several questions. I can say with certainty that a lot of those options for “things I don’t want to hear at a bus station” are spot on. “Put your pants back on” and “I will follow you into the dark” are great ways to make bus station friends…or get the cops called really fast. Extra kudos for throwing an R. Kelly song in there too for good measure. Really tied the set together. I haven’t seen the “raise the bar” format for Round 3 yet. Last night was the first and I like it! If you are a

Across the assorted continuities of the universe, there have been various interpretations of Adam. One of Adam's most notable characteristics in any form was his adamant commitment to leadership by example, and avoidance of any hypocrisy in his command. Adam is a wise and essentially upbeat battlefield general.

Other minor details about Adam's personality and personal life — for example, his dislike of rap music ("Blaster Blues" and "Quest for Survival"), which set him at odds with some music-loving characters. Adam also enjoys televised sports, most notably softball which he even plays ("The Master Builder"), as well as setting up a basketball court outside the quiz. Though Adam's personality is like that of a human man age 40-50, he is not above watching afternoon soap operas.

I like gin and tonics.

Hey, hey! I know I’ve said it before, but I really do love my Thursday nights! It’s been a long week & I really love just focusing on the quiz for a few hours. I love seeing my regulars, catching up with old friends, and meeting new people! Now, there has got to be a Drag Race fan writing this quiz! I have noticed a few times the hint of it, but this week we started off the quiz with a famous phrase from the show! I guess I should have waited a week to RuPaul-ify my blog! We also heard some songs with potentially frightening titles and once again played guinea pigs for the round 3 format. We talked

I’m Late, I’m Late, For A Very Important Date (With Quiz)
QM Ed

Three out of our eleven teams last night referenced the fact that they showed up in the middle of the first round. Fortunately, they all chose different ways to express their lateness or we would have had to solve it Thunderdome-style (wait, that actually might have been really cool). We also got to hear the microphone stylings of QMiT Jada, who will be taking over for me once she gets through her wedding madness in October. She is going to be awesomesauce, you guys. Round 1 – Silence is golden, and silent letters in words are part of why the English language is such a giant pain in the ass. Geena Davis with the perfect score. Round 2 –

It was just a joke. Albeit, not a funny one, but those are my specialty.

Also, you're fucking hot. It's ridiculous actually how hot you really are. I mean, for real. I be like: Dear Diary, The ass was fat.   You go on and get it, girl.   Things we learned at quiz: 1.

Well ladies and gentlemen, things have significantly calmed down since last weeks events in Charlotte, people are again venturing from the comfort and safety of their own homes to again join us among the land of the socially living. We saw a large turnout last night, lots of new faces, and some great new competitors who take things very seriously, a strategy that seemed to ay off for them. What a rousing competition we had last night, and a few people got the chance to poke fun at me for once.

Queens and French Fashion: Do I See A Hidden Agenda Here?
Leif Adamson

And back again for another quiz at the amazing Hangar 24 brewery. We are seeing an uptick in team numbers again. Including a second week of seeing teams I know from other venues coming out to join my quiz. I really hope to keep seeing all these regulars. Anyway, enough mushy stuff. You came here to read a review of our quiz. Our first round had teams identifying answers with silent letters, with the same silent letter somewhere in the clue. And only the Speshul Snowflakes, the team I know from other venues, came away with a perfect score. As always we had our audio round. And it was pretty straight forward asking teams to identify the artists and song titles

After having been out last week and a couple of weeks before, it was definitely nice to be back at Third Base! I missed the crap out of my quizzers, and let me tell you, I really felt the love coming back Thursday night. I promise we won't be apart from each other for that long again... well, at least not for a long time. I can't make any promises if Drive-By Truckers comes to town again like they did last year. And honeyhoney, too. Anyways.

The last time I was at Eastwood’s, kids, I was just like you. A lowly player, tucked into a corner of the bar under the team name of ‘John Solo.’ I did well that night, and then disappeared into the darkness afterwards. (Or, took an Uber, whatever…) But subbing for your usual fearless leader, I have to tell you guys, I had a blast. Maybe it was the steady flow of alcamahall, but nothing pleases me more than having a ton of you sing along to ‘Sweet Caroline’ as it is universal bar law. We left last night learning several things.

Thank You HBO For Keeping Me Out Of Prison
Sir Quizalot

I remember when I first started watch Orange is the New Black, I thought it was unbelievable. I don’t mean unbelievable in the sense that it’s so good that I don’t believe it, I mean that I just don’t buy it. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s some great story writing, acting, directing, and cinematography. Plus it has the signature Netflix cliffhanger formula that forces watchers to binge watch each season within 24 hours of release, causing thousands of people to miss work and get fired or forget to feed their kids. The lesbian scenes are a bit indulgent, but I’m certainly not going to complain. I’m not saying it’s not a good show, because
