Anything That Can Happen...Does Happen
Oliver

The eternal flow of the Quiz has no beginning, nor does it have an end. It simply is. This basic principle was demonstrated last night as some of our recent winning teams were nowhere in sight, while hungry new teams are beginning their rise to stardom. A ragtag, free-formed team by the name of AAMS, was the big winner of the night. Who is this team? Where did they come from? There are mysteries to be solved. For instance, why couldn’t they decide whether their name was AAMS or AMS? They kept going back and forth between the two all night long. Perhaps I’m asking too many questions. The really hot action revolved around the second place win of the night,

Golden Girls Erotica makes me turn Rose Red for Dorothy.
Adam Jarmon Brown

We had a quiz! It was an awesome quiz! Great crowd. Fun music. Amazing food. Then came the round. A round on Television Erotic Fan Fiction. A round of Erotic fan fiction on such shows as The A-Team, Homeland, and my personal favorite as a Deadpool fan, The Golden Girls.   Speaking of Deadpool… The movie premieres next week! On Thursday night. So I won’t be hosting my usual quiz, and instead I’ll have my ass firmly planted in a theater seat with giant popcorn and giant soda loving every minute of Deadpool’s R rated glory.   BUT quiz will still happen. You’ll have the

Quiz Number Big Five!!
Reef

We gathered in a packed bar to answer some questions and have a good time, low and behold exactly that happened. New teams galore tonight and the late regulars had to stand so you know that means next week will be lit!!So in our contest on this grand old night, third overall was claimed by the Oscar Diversity Committee, who is currently working to get me nominated. Second place went to the gang from across the way, Brick City Bearded Bastards. First place for the first time in a long time was claimed by Turd Ferguson who has been ringing the bronze bell week after week and now have claimed gold. Super fun quiz, you

I suck at Bio's and remembering names so keep that in mind when we meet at Geeks. I enjoy long games of Zombies, Grand Theft and the occasional Poker night under the cool breeze of an air conditioner. Not exactly one for making the jokes, I let them come to me from the situation, like raindrops on a pools surface. If my Bio is lacking, feel free to give me suggestions as I plan on being a level 65 Quiz master in no time!!

See you at Mills on Tuesday's, if you read this, tell me at the bar! Say "I put cinnamon in my coffee too!" and you may receive receive something special from your host.

The Pursuit of the Perfect Quyz
El Jefe

Tonight I got back on my groove and went error-free for a full 8 rounds! Yayyyyyy! We were missing our trusted leader, Nixon, behind the bar, but AJ filled in nicely and Terrence always kills it. It was another great crowd, and another great night.   Rounds 1-3 covered current events, cover songs, and Food Network recipes. Pretty Freakin Hard and Boof came out hot with perfect scores in Round 1. Round 2 was not as kind to our quizzers, with 8 of 11 teams failing to crack double digits, including BB-8, Butter Sluts, Mustache Rides and No Name.   Rounds 4-6 covered TV shows, spokes

As He Read the Questions to Her, She Couldn't Resist His Sexy QM Ways.......
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

Hey there everyone. How's it going? I'm suffering from a slight case of lack of sleep, so last night is a but if a blur, but hopefully you all had fun. I know that we had a round that consisted of some kind of fan fiction smut for just regular, everyday television shows. Although I am a little disappointed that not more teams got Homeland. Especially because I do not remember a single episode of Sex And The City where they went to Iran. Not that I watched that show ever, or that it might be on our television at this very moment while I am typing up this blog at 4:30 on a Friday afternoon. Nope, that's not really happening at all. Let's see, what else happened? Oh, I know, there was

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

That's great, it starts with an earthquake.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

I am so relieved that all my quizzers survived the SNOWSPLOSION OF WINTERPOCALYPSE. At least those who showed up last night. The others I'm waiting on official confirmation that they were buried alive. But! Hey! Maybe not the busiest night we've ever had, but not a bad 'un, considering that we were scheduled to get FOUR INCHES OF WINTRY DEATH, ZOMG!!!! And we did, and everyone's cars slid through intersections into propane trucks and exploded. I was all, WHOAAAAAAAAAA. The fun part of last night is that the Betas showed up, since they're going to Geek Bowl and need to get their chops up to choppin' before they do, because they were all derrrr derrr derrr. The

Aaron's been quizmastering since before you were born. He's occasionally hilarious when he's not being sort of a dick. Things that make him giggle include: Li'l Jon; gamboling puppies; the word "oatmeal." No idea why. He's doing preeeeeetty well for himself, thank you.

The bipolar state of Virginia
KevinSpaulding

I've lived here for nearly all my life (-5 years) and most people that are new to the area are so amazed at the weather around here. Last week, we had historically one of the biggest blizzards in the area. This week, 65 and sunny. I'm talking t-shirt weather. And now as I write this, today's high was 45 and now theres a chance of snow next Tuesday.  Why am I boring you with all of this stupid information on Virginia? Because last night, the teams seemed to be a bit bipolar themselves. Teams that normally sit at the top of the leaderboard finished near dead last. Or you have Bandersnatch, who started out slow, and came on hot at the end to pull out

"Professor..." Hermione gasped, "...wait." "Call me the Potions Master," Snape growled, and kissed the soft flesh beneath her ear. Fanfiction was the theme for Round 4 this week, and although the above little excerpt wasn't actually a part of it, you can be rest assured that the internet is filled to bursting with such smut.  Not that I know from personal experience or anything... I dated this girl.  She was into it.  Not me.Not me! Anyway, a lot of fun was had with that round, as well as the Food Network round where you guys had to identify the ingredient missing from various recipes.  Protip: if it's Paula Deen,

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.

What the #$#$ is a Flat Circle anyway?
Bingo Jones

The lead kept going back and forth between the teams last night at the Treehouse Lounge but the Joker saved the 1st place finish for Sleeves Optional who pulled ahead of the pack after a friendly round of verbal sparring with the 2nd place contenders of the evening Team Ramrod. We had consolation prizes for the teams that didn’t place and almost every team won a bonus round and a drink ticket! Not only were you forced to listen to some really bad covers but two rounds later it was erotic fan fiction time. I’m not sure if I can ever look at those shows the same way again and man there are a lot of messed

I am tempted to make erotic fanfiction about our quiz
WhatashittyDM

Well last night it was hot up in the loft, and I don’t just mean the temperature. After hearing my dulcet tones reading about Face and B.A. having some sweet sweet love, we all needed a break. It truly was a wonderful quiz last night, and quite difficult also. I salute all of the new teams; I will get your emails next week so you can sign up for the bonus box. The winner last night was Beer or Flint’s Water which was an easy choice for me last night, when the Schoolmaster IPA is on cask. Unplanned Parenthood came strong with 2nd place and I have an honorable mention for several team names. Zika Flu! I choose

How Did We Get Here? Oh, Right, Koalas.
ChristopherRounsville

Last week I gave the reins to Geeks Who Drink’s newest Quizmaster, Mr. Aaron Monts, and not only did he absolutely kill it, he opened my eyes to a new take on playlist creation. I took the time this week to ignore every Idahoan instinct in my body and included what I consider some “fire” tracks from some of the few rappers I’ve come across. I hope you weren’t thrown off too much, and if you have anything you’d like to add let me know, I’m happy to come up with a crowd created playlist, especially since faces and teams are becoming more and more familiar as people start to realize there is no better way to start your Thursday night than with Georgetown

For One Night, Andre Was My Favorite
King Of The South

One thing you all should know about me is I talk a really big game. I tend to exude a certain amount of confidence but underneath I'm usually terrified and quite humble. Thus why I get embarrassed really easily when it comes to talking about "intimate" things. This is exactly what happened during last night's smut round. Of course, like most people, I used laughter to cover my being uncomfortable. It's weird considering I once had to feign having relations with a 55-year old woman for a play. (One time with my Grandma in the front row.) I should be really comfortable with this type of stuff. If anybody has any solutions, feel free to pass them along. We protected ourselves from the

Hey yo. I'm RJ. The Urge. R-Jizzle. I'm a transplanted Austinite, originally hailing from Clarksville, Tennessee. I was educated at a school where it's perfectly acceptable to show your Peay-ness. I'm your typical sports fan. (Soccer being my sport of choice.) Cereal is my favorite food, simply because you can eat it at any time of the day. And it makes milk totally flavorful and drinkable.

I'm a total nut for pop culture...movies, music, books. I try to take as much of it in as possible, regardless of how it eats into my daily responsibilities. I'm still a video game nerd, although there isn't a lot of time for it nowadays. I'm a shameless fan of reality television and I once made it through the first two cuts of casting for The Real World. But, alas, I wasn't emotionally challenged enough to make it all of the way.

Professional wrestling is still real to me.

Quiz in Flip Flops in 11in of Snow
JeffreyMetius

So last night I just got to a point where I was like screw it…I don’t want to wear shoes.  During the spring, summer, and fall if it’s warmer than 40 outside I wear flip flops.  Well it snowed on Tuesday…a lot…and because of that I’ve had to wear boots since then.  My feet were getting claustrophobic and I just couldn’t take another day of shoes.  So I decided to just say fuck it and go for the sandals.  Yes there were moments where getting all that snow on my bare feet was a bit cold…but oh it was so worth it when I was hosting.  Bare foot = happy quizmaster.

Hello all!

I'm Jeff...the really big guy. In my time when I'm not hosting quiz I enjoy playing hockey and taking my jeep up into the mountains to get away from everyone.  While I'm up there I ponder the many parts of life...like why do hotdogs come in packs of 10 and the buns come in packs of 8...and yes you can explode and yes you can implode...but can you just plode?

Just think about it.

Yup. That's how you take miles off a car. Just drive backwards, duh. Oh wait, that didn't work, tevs. So I am in Philly right now having a jam work weekend with some of GWD corporate working on Geek Bowl. We literally just talked for 9 hours about all the shit. I gotta tell ya, I can't fucking wait. Everything looks so great! Video rounds are amazing, other rounds are super awesome, it's going to be great. Anywho, I'll be back Sunday, so I'll be quizzing Wednesday! Wednesday we had a great quiz! We had about 25 teams, some chatty Cathys, and many beers. A fun time had by all!

I could go on about how it was a tight race till the end and Gozilla Warfare won it....but no I could go on how we had a tie for second place and to break that tie we had a epic walk off Zoolander style but with less clothes.......but no I could EVEN go on about the BEST team name of the night, Broken Condom Babies, who drew a team picture representing said name....but sadly no.

Needs More Butter @ THE MAINLINE!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

When it comes to cooking, what CAN’T be made better by adding butter? Steak? Add butter. Cake? Butter. Kale chips? Sure, why the hell not. Paula Dean obviously had the right idea about SOMETHING, because it definitely wasn’t her moral compass that got her on TV. So take a tip from that fat ass diabetic with gout; butter makes the world go ‘round.   Things we learned this week: - The Smashing Pumpkins are touring with Liz Phair? What year is it?! - Poorly written fan-fic smut of The Golden Girls is quite possibly the most disturbing thing of all time. - Nuclear typos are the worst

Why yes, Andizzle fo' Shizzle is in fact my legit, legal name (as soon as I change it). Fo' rizzle, bizzle. I've hosted over 700 quizzes since 2008 and have written around 1,000 of our rounds. I'm also a vegetarian, a Jew, and a god damned pretty, pretty princess.

I kick ass and sometimes take names where appropriate; Quizmaster extraordinaire and all around nerd, I host the weekly quiz with both fury and pomp. If you ever find youself in need of a good beating in Halo, tetherball, or a good ole' fashioned PBR chugoff, feel free to let me know.

You can learn a little more about my messed up brain over at my Meet Your Quizmaster interview.
