Flash Flood Warning!
JoelBugden

The weather went from zero to downpour in the blink of an eye.  Leaving many a geek soaking wet for the duration the quiz.  I gave the wettest nerd of the night a pint glass for being so gung-ho for quizzing!  It was good to be back … despite the pacific calling me back.   What I noticed tonight was that the rain must have scared some people away, and to that I say “GOOD!”  We had the fiercest competition I have ever seen in the Pompei floors.  Not a single pencil remained unbroken.   After 3 rounds, all the teams were tied at 37.  So I started giving away

The Return
The Dark Lord of All

Now… I really wished it was true but some dreams will never come true. To the one team that thought Nick Cannon married Denis Rodman: I love you. Again guys I’d like to push Rumble in the Pub. If you’re a(n) consistent and/or exceptional team you should sign up. It is (a) chance(s) for money and/or honor. A three way tie for the third place. After a quick brawl, a couple broken noses, and one ruptured spleen we had our winners. Fourth place walked home with nothing but shame yet I have a feeling Quiz in my Pants will not be writing home to mom about this quiz. No

  I was a vigilant crime fighter when my wife died. I guess this life style wasn't easy being a single father but I found a way to involve my beautiful daughter, Arizona. I was a true family man. When the heat got too hot and the times were too fast I decided to retire.

  Finding myself bored I took up archeology and soon found myself questioning if I could see if I could steal the declaration of independence. I drove angry knowing that I was the ghost rider. I pulled up to face/off with the security guards. I know the guard was a bad lieutenant and I could see what was going to happen next. It was going to be a grind house. I listened to the weather man to make sure I would be gone in 60 seconds but sometimes you need adaptation to make sure you don't receive the kiss of death. Needless to say I failed, in terms of luck I got snake eyes. To this day it is not stolen. The whole event was caught on an 8mm camera and after a quick trip on con air I found myself in the city of angles. In prison I gained the nickname Bangkok dangerous because I was truly a lord of war. Some even called me the ant bully. Time in jail moves slow like the season of the witch.

  What I learned was that you always need to be mindful of trying to steal a national landmark you should bring more that just a hive bees.

What Bible are you reading?
Darth Gargamel

A good deal of my entrance last night was spent discussing the drama of last week. Apparently there was quite a bit of it. Fortunately tonight offered none of the same. Unfortunately I'm going to be gone next week so we'll just have to see what goes down. Well, not we. I won't be there. I have a baseball game to go to. Also I'll probably be drunk. Most definitely will be. God speed to you all. The quiz. How many eight letter edibles that start with the letter Z can you honestly think of? Real ones I mean. I told you to be specific Beyonce > Destiny's Child To the best of my knowledge there is no Genesis II The Revenge nor is there a book of Jesus. Old

Couple things about me: I'm a man, and that means I do man things. I shit with the door open, I go on riverboat gambling trips, I make my own jerky. And now all of that is wrecked!

I lied. Not one of those things is true, but if it impresses you lets stick with it. I'll tell you something that is true though. Clint Eastwood once gave me the finger. True story.

Other things......I enjoy the color blue. I'm right handed, so I've got that going for me. I cannot say the alphabet backwards, even when I'm drunk. Which is a lot. Also I've never been to Oregon. My dreams are but three: 1. To appear on Jeopardy. Cause if we aren't here for trivia, what's it all for? 2. To appear on Drunk History. I got my degree and history, and thus far it's proved useless. Appearing on that show would make it all worth while. 3. To have a sandwich named after me. Who needs a kid sharing your name when you can have a sandwich.

 

Also I enjoy Pinky and the Brain cartoons, and if you talk shit about them or request that I play Kanye music during the game, your team starts with negative 50 points. Your call man.

So that was loud!
Drizzle

Well for the first time in a long time the firsties were out in force. and loud as fuck. I'd kinda forgotten what it was like to have them in there not giving one fuck as to what anyone else was doing. One would think that when everyone in the room is trying their damndist to hear something and the QM has the volume almost all the way up that they could keep it down, you know for the whole 8 minutes that the round lasts. But nope not these mother fuckers. They're all about saving you from the boogy man but when it comes to common courtesy, fuck you is all they have to say. Now I don't want to throw them all under the bus we did have a few of them who were really interested

Leave a Message....
Tabitha

Listening to tonight’s Round 2 Spiderwebs by No Doubt reminded me of my grandfather.  Back when this song was the thing, my mother would routinely say that song was writing ab out him.  Back in the 90s if you couldn’t afford caller ID, the only way you could tell who was calling you was you let the call go to voicem…errm….the answering machine and decide to answer the call based on who was leaving the message.  This behavior prompted my grandfather to make the habit of leaving a message…and then immediately dial back, sometimes twice…just to make sure we weren’t screening our phone calls.  He still does this to this day.

Sports rounds. Yay or nay?
WyattCarson

I have to say I was very pleased to see some carry over from last weeks crazy turnout.  Tonight we hosted 9 teams.  Despite the fact they started late The Crazy Dogs (aka bicyclists who are always there drinking) finally picked up a pencil and took part in the shenanigans.  Our zoo teams showed up and tried their hardest and Awkward Olympics-Gold Medal Winner were back for the action.  With some changes coming down (Super-Secret Prize, Sports Rounds) I’m very thankful for everyone’s patience and perhaps someday you can get one of my random prize questions right.  (By the way, the average guess of my age was about

Is there a bartender in the house?
Handsome Lou

Great turnout at Growlers Beer Bistro on Tuesday night and we had a great quiz to go along with it. The visual round 5 was a perfect round for bartenders. Contestants had to guess the recipes for 8 classic cocktails making it easy it to tell who was a bartender and who wasn’t. The quiz was mostly dominated by one team…Dickles. They only got a few questions wrong through the whole quiz. Amere’s Tribe used a great strategy by saving the joker until the 8th round, bringing them from 8th place to 3rd place and able to take home an ice-cold growler. We got a bunch of laughs with

The Great Conjunction
Paddycake

Now ask me what The Great Conjunction Is. Say “What's the Great Conjunction?”   “What's The Great Conjunction?”   The Great Conjunction is the END OF THE WOOOOOORLD!!! Or the beginning? Hmmm. End, Begin, all the same. Sometimes good... Sometimes bad. Whole world might burn up! End of Aughra. Hmm.   If you were quoting along in her voice, you already have won major kudos from me. The Dark Crystal has been a go to movie for me since I was a child, and That scene came to mind last night as we had our own miniature Great Conjunction.   During Round 4, which was about fancy houses,

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

The King James That Doesn't Play Ball
Gallifreak

I'm not gonna lie. I like when we have Bible rounds in quiz. Not in a “I'm a good wholesome Christian and it does me proud to see Biblical content in a quiz that is normally litered with poop and dick jokes as it might have a holy influence on the writers of Geeks Who Drink and they might write less filth” sort of way. It's more of a “let's see how this “Christian nation” fares when they're asked to answer questions on a subject they claim is such a large part of their lives. Yes, I'm a cynical dick at times. It's who I am. I enjoy the potential train wreck that such questions brings on. Take tonight for example: You guys were asked to name 8 of the 10

Hey there everybody, Hammer here just wanted to give you an update on the awesome shenanigans that occurred during the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz at the fantastical I&I Brewing. My favorite the BBAespressoR.I.S. was back on tap, and at 13.7% by volume its really the best stout I think I've ever had. I went a little crazy handing out coasters, and pencils, but due to the fact that I cant give out email only bonus questions anymore it only felt right to give you something for putting up with me, other than the Herpes that is. Joke after joke, question after question, friends laughed with each other and its all for the quiz. Here's how the night progressed. please note the names have not been

You Can’t Beat Brady’s Balls (Except You Can)
JonGabso

T’was quite the peppy and hearty turnout today at our darling Club Cafe! A killer 12 teams turned out to have a go at the Club’s weekly smorgasbord of prizes, playing a quiz nearly packed with confusing jokering decisions and probably-perhaps-yeah-definetly far too many Bible questions for a playfully debaucherous gay bar.   So as not to deflate their fortunes (hyuk), the juggernaut I Can’t Live 4 Weeks Without Brady’s Balls were able to capitalize on a 12-point jokered Round 2, a round with songs whose lyrics mention so-called “obsolete” technology, like payphones and VCR’s.

This Week on "Who Gets Offered All of My Money"

Since nobody took me up on last week’s offer of “every last cent that I have” to make A Wrinkle in Timecop a reality, I am forced to move that offer to another endeavor: anyone who can convince Hasbro to make Breaking Bad Candyland gets every last cent that I have.  Come on folks, don’t let me down.  This needs to be a real thing.   Picture it: You’d start at the “sudo-cook crystals”, then work your way over for a brief dalliance in the opium forest with Sir Smacky, then it would be

Quiz Be With You
Bob with a J

Lots of religion-y question during quiz last night. Like, a lot a lot. There was an entire round of books of the King James Bible, and I'm not talking about Lebron. Perhaps more surprising than that was the high scores you managed on all things Godly - fully 1/3 of all teams knew (at least) eight books of the Old Testament. That's about seven more than I personally expected. Sure, I would spot you Gensis, and maybe Exodus. But like, Deuteronomy? I'm pretty sure that's an unpleasant skin condition. My heathen ass may be a special case, though. For example, here are the eight answers I would have written: Genesis (the book) Alohomora Charmeleon Genesis

I'm Batman!
dsnarr

I had a blast finding clues to hide in the music I played during last night’s quiz.  Some of them were hidden in plain sight (Zedd’s remix of The Legend of Zelda theme, and a round called Zed’s dead, with a question whose answer was Zelda.) They weren’t all so obvious. I also played Led Zeppelin, Dr. Dog’s Alaska, Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes from the classic album Graceland, Dead Kennedys, and Warren G. All of those were clues. So I’m serious when I say that I try to help you a little with my song selection. Also, I’m just a huge music geek and appreciate the chance to show off my music library.
