Nerd Adventures, Part One
Jakers

Over the past weekend, I had a rare combination of fun events coincide that once again revealed to me that I am a nerd, and at least middle of the road or further down that line that your average joe. This is a fact that I think I take pride in. It's hard to say for sure - I don't know the landscape of my feelings as well as I like. But I enjoy being who I am, so it stands to reason that being nerdy suits me.   This Saturday was dominated by board games. I spend almost the entire day over at a friend's house, (or rather, his parents' house) playing some board games that I had never played before, and some that I had. If you've never played Puerto Rico, I'd recommend it.

Jakers comes from the beautiful beaches of Irondequoit, NY. He is renowned as a herd of bears. A stickler for proper labeling, he never travels anywhere without some form of apparel that has his name on it.

As fits his Buffalo heritage, he enjoys chicken wings and beer, and supports the Bills as much as anyone can. An avid gamer, Jakers often ganks you out of the jungle when you have low health and ults all over your face.

He fears the strange lands outside Rochester.

Thinking Hard or Hardly Thinking
J.A.M.E.S.

I was a bit out of it during the quiz last night, having consumed a prodigious amount of alcohol over the course of the weekend. The quiz ran along just fine as usual but I was having a tough time keeping my thoughts in any sort of coherent order. So, I thought it might be fun for ya’ll to peek inside my noggin and see what was going on in there throughout the quiz.   -Hammerstein is an abomination created by trying to reanimate MC Hammer.   -How the hell are “ugly laws” enforced?   -Wait, is MC Hammer dead or just his career?

Nixon's Back!
Quizmaster Mike

What is it about giant-sized Jenga that makes otherwise reasonable adults into a bunch of raving lunatics. Every time I’m hosting quiz, someone decides to play Jenga. Now, I’m not roping it in with the giant-sized Connect-Four that is also at the bar. That shit is awesome. It’s a game that requires tact and cunning, pitted head-to-head against an opponent. Jenga, on the other hand, requires…. balance? The ability to feel which blocks move easily and which ones are firmly in place? Every time, it ends the same way. The tower falls. I don’t see why everyone has to make a huge deal about it every time. It’s literally completely

You had me, Quizmaster Adam - sub extraordinaire - and Quizmaster Fernando to lead you through  the intricacies of Geeks Who Drink. Anyone watching the series on Syfy? It’s great! Not to mention I loved that Alan Tudyk totally blew an Isaac Asimov question. So we had the usual eight rounds of pub quiz tonight. Which was fabulous. 10 teams came out to play and laugh and drink awesome beer. But,

Tie Game - Bonus Edition!
Cheems

You have to love when the quiz comes down to the wire, I know I do. Last night was another close game where only four points separated the top three teams. But before we get to that, it's time for an important lesson: the difference between cities and towns.   cit·y ˈsidē/ noun a large town. "one of Italy's most beautiful cities"   coun·try ˈkəntrē/ noun a nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory.

Making New Friends Is The Best!
BostonMcCown

They had knocked on the door several times and no response was given. So they peeked into the window of the old Triumverate townhouse. The hike was long. The fields by the house were wide with the figures of scarecrows peppered throughout the crops with those wonderully dull eyes that seem to follow your every move. Ducking in and out of the cornfields the boys made their way to the door of the Triumverate Townhouse. Knocking on the door provided no results. Peeking in through the window they could see the house was decorated by two old women who loved to put knitted doilys under ceramic dolls of the Penguinicity variety. The room was lit by a rerun of the old TV show "My Drinking

Getting old is mandatory, but growing up is optional. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, nothing really changed.

I still play video games, I play with more expensive toys now a days, but I still play. Between delivering knowledge in the Pub Quiz or delivering jokes on the bar stage, the most important thing is to play.

Boardgame-pocalypse @ BEAU JO'S!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

I discovered that apparently not many people are that into board games these days, which is a damn shame. You should all be playing more of ‘em… and I don’t mean the old-school classics like Monopoly or Candyland…. No, there’s are a whole slew of newer games that are pretty damn awesome, like Ticket To Ride, or Pandemic. One of my favorites is the Game of Thrones Board Game (of Thrones). It will make you hate your friends, which is good because you have a kingdom to run and ddon’t have time for the likes of those who would oppose your rule.   Things we learned this week: - Madonna

Board Games by the Numbers
Extra Terresticle

I’m guessing there’s a good chance most of you grew up playing board games when you were kids. Maybe some of you still play board games as adults. Either way, we dropped a round on board games on you last night which seemed to trip up more than a few teams. A few of the questions were fairly straightforward, while the others were a little tricky. Let’s look back at that round and see how logic could have been used to get all eight points. First off, the answers to the round used all the base ten digits, 0-9, exactly once. Since there were eight questions, this meant either six questions would have a single digit as an answer and two questions would be two digits

Painful, burning regret and Dr. Pepper 10
Thom Cich

A lot of times on these recaps it's fun to talk about one of the crazy themes we had in one of our rounds, but tonight, my inspiration is more specific.  It comes from our Random Knowledge round, where we asked about a pop (yes, pop, not soda) that used the slogan "it's not for women."  We're talking, of course, about the most delicious, and possibly sexist beverage in the world: Dr. Pepper 10.   If you don't recall this ad campaign, feel free to take a quick peek right here.  A delicious, low-calorie soft drink marketed to men as if it were as manly as drinking moonshine made by bears

No Rice-A-Roni in Australia
JacobNusbaum

Hello and welcome to the Monday Night Geeks Who Drink at MVP’s blog. When you hear the word “trolley” it most likely conjures up an image of a little red electric street car moving through the streets of San Francisco, unless of course you are Australian in which case you picture a shopping cart…obviously. I was talking to a friend of mine who happens to be an Aussie about this very subject. I mentioned the San Francisco Treat (ding ding) and he gave me a blank stare. I explained that it was not a roll in the hay with another bloke (picking up some of that Australian vernacular), but rather a variety of flavored rice in a box that he could place in his trolley at the

"[Crocodiles] eat everything, Lana! And fear is their bacon bits!"
StorySlug

Nobody's saying hippos don't kill a lot of people, guys.  Crocodiles just kill more. We had a lot of interesting changes in fortune last night, as a bunch of teams burst into late-game score increases, shaking up our standings a lot in the end. The Tie Dye Hippie Geeks won it, certainly, but the Owls of Achill had been languishing in the lower ranks all night before squeaking in to a late second place.  That pushed Spy Dawgz 3D to third place, ahead of Slaughterhouse who likewise had been nowhere near the top all night.  My Hemorrhoids Are Back

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.

Didn't I tell you that every time I get to O'Henry's on Monday, that something interesting (and usually quite... adult) awaits me? Do you know what it was this week? Do you know what it was?! Right there, in front of the podium, where there used to be a table and chairs, was a cordoned-off inflatible kiddy pool, for lube wrestling. I can't make this stuff up. So, you know, that kind of sets a tone. Four teams came to play this week, and although we missed some of our most familiar faces, I still had the privilege of spending my evening with a room full of clever and wonderful darlings who made sure we had a kickass quiz.

 Hello Hippopotumuses. Thanks for braving the burning heat of the hot hot sun and coming out to our own oasis, Marg's taco bistro. We enjoyed the $5 house margaritas and some delightful company. Speaking of good company, have you guys heard of this Full House Reboot that Netflix is putting together? I bet you have, because if you're anything near the age I am, all your facebook acquaintances are being like ZOMG guys, do you remember this?!? Looks at these sassy girls, and was Uncle Jesse hot or what?!? Then you tag people who are probably your sisters. I mean, don't get me wrong, I watched this show as much as anyone else.

It was another fantastic night at the Bohemian Bull, where 5 highly competitive groups of geeks (gaggles of geeks?) duked it out to win the top prizes and won plenty of free beer along the way. Our heroic teams were strong in name, numbers, and intensity, coming out of the gate with a round about San Francisco. Turns out yo’ momma couldn’t have lived in San Fran way back when because it’s true they had a law that banned ugly people from showing their faces! Boom.
