I Can Take A Hint
Amondeuz

Thanks for coming out to the Black Lotus Brewing Co. again for our weekly contest of cerebral combat. Our royal rumble of rationality. Our studious skirmish of scholarly stuff. Our quiz of quizzical quizziness. Geeks! Who! Drink! OoooOOOOOOO!!!!!! We had another great turnout this week. 8 teams tried to jaw victory from the snatch of defeat… or, however that saying goes. But only two had the mental girth needed to burst

George Michael Stars in "Wham! Bam! Thank ya, Ma'am!"
AdamSweeney

Fact; Wham's "Last Christmas" is one the greatest, and most ridiculous, holiday songs ever. Cool? Cool. Last night marked the debut of my time as a quizmaster at Trifecta, and Evan will be sorely missed. Love that guy. But the show must go on and you all made me feel very welcome, and a lot of you are Red Sox fans! Bonus! Any fan of the BoSox is a friend of mine.  The Real Slim Shady definitely stood up at the quiz on Wednesday, taking home the 1st place prize. Now if only we had an 8 Mile poster to give them. Eminem, are ya listening? I totally agree with the notion that Trifecta is smuggling children to cut costs on their delicious

Krampusnacht Survivors
Nate Fincher

Some of the regulars must have been naughty because there were a few absent faces in the crowd…and some of those faces were missing Tuesday night too. So, since Monday was Krampusnacht, my only conclusion can be that some of them were taken by Krampus!!! The rest of us, however, were just fine. We even braved the first real cold we’ve had here in Eugene for our favorite Thursday night hot spot! It wasn’t even all that bad. It was only 2 degrees above freezing. Its not really a problem til we hit that freezing point. Speaking of freezing points, our audio round highlighted some of the coldest hearts out there. And hearing their voices just makes my blood boil.

God's Gift to the World: Ripley
Ash Plissken

So yesterday was the 4th birthday of the most perfect, wonderful and effing adorable creature ever to grace the face of the earth.  I'm talking, of course, about my dog Ripley.  In honor of my fur-baby's name day I'd like to take the opportunity to mention the worst things she's ever done: When she was 3 months old she snuck out of her cage, climbed onto the kitchen table, ate en entire pack of cheap dog treats, then proceeded to shoot no less that 30lbs of liquid shit out of her butt across the living room, up the stairs, down the hall, and in front of my bedroom door - at 3am in the morning At 5 months old she snuck out of her cage, chewed up a laptop power

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas – but if the white runs out I’ll drink the red
Briscoe County Tara

The holiday season is upon us, and so are the themed quizzes. While I always think that the “Real or Some Shit We Made Up?” round surely would be the easiest, I’m surprised at how our clever writers stump the players with ridiculous clues. This week, Round 3 snowballed its victims in a Holiday Tradition. The only team that saw through Rudolph’s poop was Kangaroo Face Punchers with a perfect score. I must confess, there are some pretty cray, cray holiday traditions out there.   Our Donny Osmond round was met with universal groans. But hey kids, y’all did pretty damn well on that round! You can’t hide your fandom. However,

Fantastic Deaths And Where To Find Them
Major Tom

Last night's Round Seven gave us clips from people who the editors apparently wish death upon. I'm pretty sure that Adam Sandler was a joke. He's annoying and not funny (except in "Happy Gilmore"), but wishing he was dead? I doubt it. Anyway, there has been some talk about hw brutal that round was. People seem to think it's wrong to wish death on people. I, for one, do not wish death on Roger Goodell or Paula Deen. Not even Bill Cosby. That man made me laugh so hard for years. Say what you want about him, he enriched a lot of our lives for a long time. The clip included in the round was from his dentists routine on one of the first cassette tapes I ever owned. My family used to play his tapes

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Lost in Translation
Monstar Blanko

Hey everybody, It's Will your frequent pub quiz opponent and occasional Quiz Master. I really enjoyed leading last night's spirited quiz, and sharing my somewhat embarrassing High School music taste with you all on a night that was WAY TOO COLD. It was a quiz in which my disdain for Adam Sandler's films paired with a clip expanding on his jewish heritage made me appear mildly anti-Semitic. Obviously next time I ought to listen to the clips ahead of time. Lesson learned.  You all rocked out appropriately to I Believe in a thing Called Love, and you heard my brother singing christmas tunes as

Making Terrible Jokes About Terrible People APPARENTLY Goes Too Far For Some
The Suit

For the record, Round 7 was all about people who we would have rather lost to 2016 than some of the lovely people we did instead.  But piggybacking off of that to make some dark, off-color jokes about some of those people made my quizzers go "Oooooooooo" more than I'd care to admit. (Twice) But the show went on regardless!  And I was happy to see even though we were faced with snow, I was still able to coax six lovely teams out to play.  And five of them stayed til the end, even! I'm gonna start from the top this week.  The Clapping Crabs is a team that should be all-too familiar to you by now.  They come and dominate almost every week.

The Suit is an enigma. The Suit will master your quiz. The Suit has no shame. Hence why the suit talks about himself in the third person. If you ever see the suit not in a suit he's not technically the suit, he's just a normal guy named Matt. Both Matt and The Suit will tell you what's up after a gin or two. The Suit is semi-famous for his catchphrases "I was going to make a joke but I couldn't think of a good punchline in time" and "Words are super difficult, guys."

Happy Birthday!
Ben

So in a great coincidence, Dave asked me to come sub here tonight, and it also happens to be my friend David, of teams Happy Mortality Awareness’s birthday tonight. Therefore, I think it is most important for me to wish David, a wonderful summer co-worker and generally pretty great dude, a happy birthday! Anyway, hi everyone! Tonight was fun, and full of way too much chips and queso on my part. I regret nothing. Anyway, how about I talk about quiz for a second? Tonight we learned that they seriously think that they can reboot The Mummy without Brendan Frasier, which if you ask me sounds absurd. That man is a treasure

“We’re on each other’s team…”
Miss Brittany

SNOWPOCALYPSE 2016!!!!11!! Eh, it was more a smattering than a blizzard. A lovely and picture-perfect dusting of delicate flakes wafting lazily to the ground. But this is the Puget Sound, and the mere threat of flaky precipitation usually leads to folks cleaning out the local grocery store and holing up in their bunkers. But 5 brave teams collectively gave the finger to the forecast, and came down to the Easy Monkey Taphouse to show their superiority over the elements. Steve Bannon’s Dreaming of a White Nationalist Christmas started strong and dominated all night, clearing several perfect rounds to finish 1st at 86. Arrogant

What The Heck Is A "Piltdown?"
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Seriously, I’m pretty sure we made that word up.  I don’t know about you but I don’t see myself going there anytime soon.    Anyway, last night’s quiz was a gooden.  Plenty of teams stuck around.  Heck, even a few popped in just for a round here or there, which is always exciting.  One thing is for sure though, everyone needs to brush up on their holiday traditions around the world.  I mean, come on.  Y’all coulda guessed and done better than that!   Major props to our winners from last night.  Table was a pretty solid team.  What they lacked in creative team

Baby It's Cold Outside
Andrew

So for the first time in my quizzing tenure, the quiz was extremely close.  I mean sure, the crowd was smaller than usual, but most of the regular teams were there (though somewhat smaller than usual).  My guess is the cold weather kept everyone away.  Stay inside, read, and drink hot chocolate.  Not on my watch though!  Come hell or high water, it's quiz or bust.     Anyway, the difference in this quiz ended up being 3 points between the first place team and the third place team.  That means one team ended up losing out on a prize by a single point.  Just one more correct answer and we'd have had a tie breaker.  Even

Stocking Up For Christmas
KataMari

At my work, we were told to “bring a stocking that best represents” us for our Secret Santa. While there are bedazzled stockings, NFL stockings, Snoopy stockings, mine is supremely me—BB-8 emblazoned with Star Wars rebel logos. It’s me. Besides, they don’t make  N7 or X-Men stocking just yet. Yet. I’m planning on attempting some geeky sewing crafts, eventually in my spare time, so we’ll see when I actually get to starting that project. Anyway, the reactions to my stocking in the office range from “adorable!” (our nurse practitioner who likes Star Wars minimally) to “what is that from? “ (everyone else). When I simply said

I was born & raised in San Diego, California, I left for a few years to attend and graduate from the University of Arizona. Bear down! I used to spend my days teaching Tucson's youth--the future of America (get out while you can--seriously.) But, now I'm embarking to nursing school. In my spare time, I enjoy geeking out at quiz, playing HeroClix and tabletop games or hanging with friends!

I love animals, science, books....and quizzing! There's more to know but really, who cares?

Jack Frost Nipping At My Quiz
Tim

Greetings.   First off, thank you all for braving terrible weather to join me this week. I know we Utahns aren't scared of a little snow, but I appreciate it nonetheless. We had a great group of super smart people, with our regular band of misfits joined by some new faces. We started with a tougher than usual current events round, which led into a Twelve Days Of Christmas inspired music round. You guys did very well there. Our 50/50 round on holiday traditions was a mixed bag, but those rounds always are. At least we learned that people in Catalonia like pipe smoking poopers in their nativity scenes. You guys nailed the rest of the quiz, especially our audio round

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!

You're Out of Your Element Donny Osmond!
QuizGentleman Bryton

I love when we get local ties during the quiz. The round on Donny Osmond was a nice touch, making us all picture his dark hair and giant teeth, along with a few gimme questions.    As we begin to wind-down 2016 we can all agree that a lot of good celebrities died. But plenty of bad celebrities didn't die so we can at least celebrate that at least eh eh eh?   Check out Bakersfield Food Riot (coming soon!) who only missed first place by two points while playing solo. That's a Jeopardy champion for you right there. Mr. Jiggledaddy and told me a horrifying story about the Pope. Brosie O'Donnell

Oh, hey! Some of y’all are true Coloradans…sub-freezing temps and a little unpredicted snow on the road aren’t gonna keep YOU from Quiz! Somebody had to make the cooks at McCabe’s make all those GIANT burritos…it might as well have been us. I couldn’t even eat half of mine, much to the pleasure of my husband, who gets all of my Quiz leftovers. And now it’s all gone and I can’t stop dreaming about it. I wish I had taken a picture. That Ancho Pork Chili concoction on the top of that burrito was unreal. Ugh. We had a nice, quiet Quiz this week. I love it when we have the whole restaurant to ourselves, which is rare.
