New Sport at Rio 2016: Pickle Balls!
Ross the Boss

What a fun night, quizzers! Tonight was filled with history questions. Tonight was filled with geography questions. You loved them all! Our 8-Bit Nintendo-fied round was a hit! And it brought some early leads to some teams tonight. Plus, hearing Bananarama in 8-bit style was oddly soothing. Tonight, at Geeks Who Drink at the delicious Medusa Brewery, I learned: -Fidel Castro's brother is named “The Other Fidel,” and “Big Papi.” -The audio round was brought to you tonight by: 2 Fast 2 Furious, 8 times in a row. Also, Bon Iver sang everything ever made. -Evil wizard Saruman is also known as “Gandalf's other wizard

Surprise tickets, things that happened, and much love!
Colonel Chase

Of course it’s convention week, so we convened a quiz at Charlie’s just for you! In the last week of July, just like Phelps victories and Steamboat Willie! Then we nintendofied the hits! Round two had Katy P, Bananarama, and Avicii, who once implored me to take a pill in Ibiza. Alps are not just mistakes when typing about 80’s sitcoms, they’re mountains! In Europe! And round three covered how to see them all in those countries. Round four was all about getting high, with some elevation that is! There were big buildings, needles that pierce Space! and getting your ass to Mars. Mickey smelled like vodka at the park the other day. So visually

Retired Colonel, full-time Quizmaster.

The story of Quizmaster Chase is a long and arduous one. One that stands the test of time and also serves as a cautionary beacon to others. 

Quizmaster Chase grew up deep in the heart of a pre-Twilight Olympic Peninsula. A land of trees and mountains and water, and apparently also a land of quizmasters. At that age when most children do, Quizmaster Chase left the family homestead and headed towards Seattle with nothing more than a napsack and a dream. 

Dazzled by the bright lights, the country kid made his way through University and a professional career before finally achieving the highest rank in the military, that of Colonel. Once a Colonel, Quizmaster Chase was able to live his dream of traveling across the Pacific to Japan on a goodwill mission, as well as serve as a non-official envoy to Europe during a brief tour just prior to the United Kingdom's General Election of 2010. Quizmaster Chase also serves as a senior advisor on beverage matters to several local governemnt entities in the state of Hawai'i. 

While residing near Seattle's Lake Union (for a quick seaborne escape if need be) Quizmaster Chase enjoys the fine world of microdistilleries and their wares, the interplay between water and land, and his trustworthy dog Jack.

Update: most of this is not accurate anymore, but Chase is even more awesome now that he runs Olympia.

The Answer to Everything: 42 Condoms

[ Wine of the Week: Back Country Plum ] | Best Team Name: Plum Spritzers Only $5 | This week’s quiz may have been my favorite so far. I loved Round 2…and that might explain why I’ve been itching to put off writing my blog and sit and play Nintendo all night. Maybe I will go to the Mario Kart tournament at Forgotten Roots on Sunday (3pm for you losers. Bring it.) The Wine of the Week this week is the Back Country Plum. And yes, it is different from the plum wine from a few weeks ago. This plum wine is made from whole, fresh plums, no artificial flavorings, and pure deliciousness. It is light, refreshing, tart, and never overly-sweet. I learned from

I’d have to say that tonight was by far my best night of doing this thing….Geeks Who Drink!  Our 10th week of hosting here in Carson City and I’m starting to love it. Tonight we had a special co-host and repeated team member, Flat Stanley.  Thank you for joining us tonight, all 13 of you! We had a couple newbies tonight, teams Unicycling Unicorns and the Dream Team. They didn’t make it through the entire quiz but I hope they had fun while they were here and perhaps they’ll come back next week! Some interesting FUN FACTS from tonight: Yours truly loves pickles Sharks

International Waters Law Explained at 115 Decibels
ZacHastings

Hi friends, This blog is going to be short and to the point because your beloved Quizmaster needs to lay down and take some Ibuprofen. You see, during tonight’s quiz, we found ourselves in the middle of a situation where one team member was sitting idly between the GWD Cardinal rules two and three. When I didn’t accept her answer of the “three c’s” I kindly told her to “quit her shit” and we all moved on. However, at the end of the night, as I’m greeting the wounded and the victorious, I was lambasted at a high level of volume concerning maritime law, dating back centuries. As this charming young woman continued her explanation of treaties

Bananarama Clearly Meant to Say, "Cool Sunburn!"
Quizmaster Stephen

I really enjoy the chance to substitute-QM at Marco Polo.  The drinks are excellent, and the broasted chicken is bro-mazing.  So when the call came down for me to do it tonight, I leapt at the opportunity.Challenge is, I got no car, and I don't live near the place.  I'm kinda in the shadow of the Space Needle, which is great for occasionally replacing the stock photo in my Facebook profile, but not so great when the masses convene there every summer weekend for some festival or marathon or something.  Plus, it's a long walk to Marco Polo.  At least I've heard it is.  From Google Maps.  Those people know EVERYTHING.So

Quiz, and the world quizzes with you.  Blog, and you blog alone.

About the quizmaster:

Stephen spent the first 24 years of life in northern Colorado, when a little tech company called Microsoft convinced him to try living in the Pacific Northwest.  After four years, he returned to Denver; but at the end of 2009 another little startup named Amazon lured him back to Seattle, and, as it so happens, he moved into a little place across the street from a place with a pub quiz.

After being a team player for a year and a half, Stephen took the plunge and auditioned for quizmastery.  He currently resides in lower Queen Anne, in a deluxe apartment in the sky-y-y, with his lovely wife Laura, a psycho killer cocker spaniel from hell named Kuno, and a sociopath cat named George.

You can spot Stephen quizzing on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm at Fado Irish Pub.

Hi kids!   My my my, what to talk about in this here blog?   I mean, first of all, congrats to Suckwagon for defending their win from last week, once again edging out Slap n’ Gherkin, who once again took second! These two duos have the beginnings of a rivalry brewing, looks like to me!   Jesus, I just said “brewing” and I host at a coffee shop. I’m sorry. I’m truly sorry.   I’m not that sorry.   Anyway, does anyone else have a thing they compulsively buy that they don’t need? Personally, I always feel compelled

I would like to dub tonight “the battle of the Bobs,” because one of the highlights for me was our second place Bob-off between Bob Loblaw Strikes Back and Not Great, Bob! who both tied on the scoreboard and had to settle it the old fashioned way, by rapid fire naming as many famous Bobs as they possibly could. And while this could have gone on for minutes, it really only lasted a few rounds. In the end, Not Great Bob! was great, as they walked away with the twenty dollar gift certificate. Woo!

Hiya WeldWerks!  Our topic of conversation tonight might come as a bit of a surprise.  Especially considering our themes tonight.  Instead of focusing on our specific themes, we’re going to cover something, a little bit…different. Sports!  I promise, this isn’t going to be a recurring theme. The summer Olympics are nearly here.  Despite the abhorrent state of the current conditions of the athlete’s Olympic Village.  Despite the very real possibility of Zika.  Despite the cheating Russians having their invitation revoked.  Very athletic people are preparing to compete in a variety of events.  America is obviously

Quizmaster Zach is an avid fan of Rush: the Holy Triumvirate, and spends the majority of his free time watching irreverent comedies such as Portlandia, Trailer Park Boys and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. When he is away from the television he plays ice hockey (poorly), hosts quiz (poorly) and eats food (poorly). To be honest, QM Zach does most things poorly but that's easily overlooked because he is so good looking. The only thing he is good at is doing a karaoke version of YYZ. You can see QM Zach live and in person and judge him accordingly every Saturday night at 8:00 PM at Krazy Karls pizza. Just don't look directly into his eyes. You might never be able to look away.

Hey you, how are you? Thanks for clicking my name. Very thoughtful of you.

So, let's see, what do you want to know? Hmm. I took a four month trip around the world last year and saw really cool cities like Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Amman, Budapest, Sofia and Reykjavik. I like beer a lot. I've been drinking nothing but Founders All Day IPA lately since they released the 15 pack for $16!

I also recently discovered the Professor Blastoff podcast and have become obsessed with it. So at any given time, I'm either listening to it or thinking about something funny that happened in one of the episodes. And yes, I can rap just using my body.

On the Structural Integrity of Judge Judy

Normally, it’s not in a Quizmaster’s nature to entertain challenges to the answers to any given question. That’s what the Errorogenous Zone is for. But Pquizadactyl managed to entertain us with several quandaries about exactly how high you could stack 100 Judge Judys. For our part, the answer worth the point assumes that you stack the Judy clones for their full height of 5’1” (1.55 meters) each. That is to say, each Judy is standing on top of the head of

42 Count
KelleyCrockett

The bonus question for round 8 has to be one of the strangest facts that I have heard about the Olympics. The Rio Olympic committee has bestowed the gift of 42 condoms to each athlete. This is strange for so many reasons. Are these athletes incapable of purchasing their own condoms? Why is this something the Olympic committee believes they should be providing? I am not opposed to the athletes having condoms provided, it just seems a bit strange to me. I can't help but wonder if they are giving them regular Trojan condoms or are they branded with the Olympic rings on one side of a white wrapper with a Rio 2016 on the reverse side. Now let's discuss why they are providing so many condoms.

Some aspects of ourselves we choose, others we are born into. I was born into being a geek. I blame it on being raised in a home covered in 1950's B movie posters. We watched Star Trek religiously as a family every Sunday night. Having your books taken away was the ultimate punishment bestowed upon us by my parents. Brutal, I know. It was inevitable I would be a geek. I am new to hosting pub quiz but that was only a matter of time as well. On a deeply personal note, I love turkey Legs! I look forward to getting my geek on while you get your drink on playing pub quiz. Cheers!

We have a few teams that are rarin’ to go and are fighting hard for the win :)  This quiz gave most teams an opportunity to reflect on the fact that they don’t know much about geography (yet again!), to try to spell “guillotine, “Miyazaki” and “Chernobyl,” and to come up with as many synonyms for poop as possible. Round 1 was all about things that have happened in July in years past. Almost all teams knew Michael

For those of you who are wondering (and I'm sure it's A LOT of you), I've returned to my day job. No more stories about my grand adventures. If you don't know, I am an assistant principal at a middle school, and now that I'm back to doing both Geeks and working at school at the same time, I've really started to notice the similarities between hosting Quiz and working with 12-year-olds: 1) I frequently have to remind teams to put their name on their answer sheets.2) I have to repeat directions way more than I would think.3) People still don't follow the directions.4) I have to sharpen a lot of pencils.5) We have to work on handwriting (bonus questions).6)
