You’re Best Worst Joke
The Fortress

 I challenged you all last night to give me your best worst joke and no fewer than 3 teams gave me some version of Donald Trump. Which I thought it was actually pretty funny! So good job J   But let’s talk about something that has never happened at one of my quizzes before; someone got cut off. I’ve been at several bars where someone should’ve been cut off and wasn’t because he was a regular and the bartender and all the wait staff new them, but this was the first time I actually saw someone walk away rejected. To be totally honest, he was a super nice guy who didn’t make a scene, he just walked back to his table and tried to get his

Yeah, well what can I say about myself...A LOT! 

But I won't. I'm just your regular quiz-mistressing chick on in the city. Sounds like a million dollar sitcom idea to me. 

Actually QM's are more of 250K reality show idea on MTV. My show would be akin to Jersey Shore, but no fist pumping or pregnant short people. 

...but back to me. I'm called The Fortress...no idea why though, so come out and see me in action and maybe we can come up with some ideas why together!

Until Next Time, Black History Month
Quizler

Thanks for coming out on national margarita day! What a fun holiday that someone just made up at noon today for the heck of it. Congratulations to Panda, Panda, Panda, Panda, Panda for letting me act like Alex Trebek, and for winning a close race. And also to Blame Charles for coming up from behind and taking back what’s theirs (second place). Remember how good a move She’s All That is? So many good lines, but one of my favorite is when Taylor is talking about her new boyfriend and says “He’s from ‘The Real World’” and Freddie Prinze Jr. says, “What, like Reseda?”

College teacher by day, Pub Quiz Queen by night.  I love puns and portmanteaus and team names that include my name.  Some say people hate hearing the sound of their own voice but it seems that may not be true for me.

My quiz night includes song requests, dancing, and if you're good, chugging contests.

NH is my childhood homestate and after trying several other places, including San Diego, and South Korea, I came back to the 'Shire.  Help me figure out why!  

Maybe you want my credentials? BA in English from PSU, MA in Linguistics from SDSU.  Does that mean I love to party?  More like, I love to be the smartest person in the room full of party school people.  It hasn't happened yet.

Even though I'm a linguist, I'm not the most cunning. My quiz teammates always had to guess the answers I "knew" from random clues I'd give them.  There was a lot of "ya know?  the guy with the hair?" going on.  Suprisingly, this method led us to victory on many happy occasions.

When you come out to the Stone Church for quiz night, chat me up!

It's Embarrassing! (Boogie Woogie Woogie)
Amy

We broke records last night, friends! Filling up our corner of the drive in, we had a total of thirteen teams last night! Our fullest night yet! With so many newbies playing, I had to read the rules three times. Even still, there were some missteps. And missteps here result in public humiliation. Thanks for being good sports. As repayment, here's an embarrassing story about me.  I have a secret for y'all: I am not a drinker.  "But Amy! You work for Geeks. Who. DRINK!"  Sigh. Yes, yes I do. I know. And I will have one or two drinks every once in a while but not much more than that. It's never been my thing. I don't have any fantastic stories of being wasted

Bartenders Killing it Tonight!
Ellie

I have been hosting quiz at Raconteur for 5 months now, and the past few weeks the bartenders finally decided they were going to dabble in playing too. One problem: they somehow, despite being there every week “Don’t know the rules.” I stand up every week, same spiel, I always go super into the rules lay them out, make sure I’m precise. I don’t like it when people don’t follow rules and then say “Ohhhh I didn’t know.” Yeah you did, I said ‘em! Yet, somehow my beautiful, wonderful, bartenders had “Never heard of joker,” followed by “Wait, I can’t joker every round?” That’s okay, I broke it down for

We Are Back Bitches
Bill

Geeks Who Drink is BACK at the Peddlers Daughter. We had shitty snow two weeks ago and then there was Valentine’s day off. I know not all of you had dates that night but I did, with a hot lady known as my wife. It wasn’t anything fancy but it was fun. I am excited to be back slinging questions for you guys.   My favorite team name of the evening was “Youre not Devoss of Me”. Who apparently that name did them well. They kept ahead the entire night. They jokered the music round like all of you guys did and were able to stay ahead of the juggernaut “The Nest”. It was a knock out drag out for the top prize but “You’re not Devoss

And sadly Lethal Weapon was not the right answer...
Laura

There are seldom night when I feel like so many teams do so well. It's quite impressive. And then there are those few nights where every questions is harder than you thought and everyones scores blow. This Tuesday was somehow pretty middling. Everyone did well enough for me not to judge you and to harshly and yet bad enough for me to think that some of those questions were of decent cognitive challenge.    We'll keep this post brief.  In third place we had: Hufflepuff Puff Pass In second: Eagle Rage And first place was: Swedish Refugees   Twas a lovely evening to spend with you folk! See you next

Snow Locker!
Gary

  The snow doesn't stop you peeps from quizzing it up, and that's pretty awesome. 11 teams were in the house from start to finish and we had some rocky rounds...no really. Round 1 was about rocks.... ....and apparently, everyone knows their rocks really well as 80% of all teams rocked a perfect score of 8. Rock on! (ok, sorry, I had too. Don't judge me too HARD) Round 2 audio round with My Fair Lady (songs by women) was at least a tiny bit tougher but Heineken Skywalker and Snowmageddon 2017 racked up 13 points (and doubled down....pointgasm!) Round 3 in our favorite 50/50 series was about Americans abroad and

(What a Great Quiz) We Had O' Here! Last Night...
WhitneyWhitworth

My quizzlecats, have I told you lately that you’re my favorite people in the whole wide world? Well, yes, last week (even you Natt Spitt,) I suppose, and really every week. You are like the children that I don’t have, who I share custody with and only get to see you on Tuesdays for a few hours before you head back to your mom’s hose (that whore) so we make every minute count extra when we are together. And, I’ll give you alcohol, because I’m the “cool” parent, but don’t tell your mother because it is our little secret. *winky face* We had a potpourri of questions last night, but maybe the most difficult round we have had in a long time

John, Time Lord and Quiz Master

Alrighty folks, things are finally starting to tone themselves back down to the regular quizzing schedule, everyone seems busy as hell in this time of the year, between learning and partying, school and work, we are all giving it our best shot! Thanks to all who managed to make it out for tonight’s quiz!!! Tonight we hit our quiz with subjects such as, geology, Female singers, and their hits close to the top, smuggling, the white house and morocco, and more. Some of the rounds were a struggle with issues such as punctuation. If you are reading this blog, you know I feel the pain! For the remainder of this blog, I’m going to hit on some more pressing issues,

I found myself reflecting on the recent actions of the one known as The Doctor. Realizing how many lives he had saved, how much good he had done, i decided that there was only one thing that I could do to measure up; I needed to travel back in time to the year 2014 and become a quizmaster to help increase the general useless knowledge of the population. So here I am, Geeks of Fort Collins, to bring to you the knowledge of all space and time, at least the stuff that sort of matters.

John is originally from New York (upstate, the part that doesnt suck)

plays guitar, bass, saxaphone, a bit of keyboard

enjoys long walks off of short piers, picnics at the wrong end of a firing range, and playing in traffic.

Is Punctuation, Really. That; Important?
Amy D

Round seven was a doozy. Not only was it a hard round, teams were scored on punctuation that is included in the movie title, this pretty much screwed everyone over. A clever answer from Make Snow, Not War to the question “Geologists are to Earth, as areologists are to what other planet?” was nipples… areola… areologists… get it? The answer they wrote on their answer sheet was correct, Mars. Both Chester Copperpotheads and Nerdwood only missed one question on round two and jokered for 30 points!

Wow holy shit, I feel like last night had the most teams we’ve had in a MINUTE! The kids came back! You didn’t win, but dammit you tried, and that’s admirable for children. Congrats to Uncles With Benefits and The Infamous, for first and second place, respectively.  See you guys next week!

I Saw What You Did With Those Broadway Round Titles
Tori

This week is Spring Vacation week here in Boston. Kids are out of school, families are visiting the city on vacation, and those who are stuck working act like they’re on vacation anyway due to the long weekend and some kind of automatic response to vacation weeks from childhood. Of course, that means the Battery Park Bar and Lounge was full of people ready to have a great, quiz-filled evening.   Four great teams eagerly grabbed their quiz materials and were more than ready to compete for the prizes, cheering when the quiz got started! I knew it was going to be a particularly awesome quiz going

Hawaii’s first Quiz for a Cause was a major success!  Quizzers were feeling very generous and came out in droves tonight to support Graduate Women in Science (affectionately shortened to GWIS [GEE-WIZ]).  37 teams tested their knowledge to complete for some AWESOME Honolulu Beerworks prizes and the sweet cash prize that comes with our Quiz for a Cause.   Those GWIS ladies may or may not have bribed one of those Geeks Who Drink writers to have an entire science-y round to kick off the night! Over half of the teams scored a perfect 8 on that one- their professors must be proud.   The science-y round was

We're not that into rocks.
RyanBeach

Rocky is a good way to describe last night. Not the actual run of show. Despite a surprise 26 Team turnout, that went great. A special welcome back to Anal Bum Cover and their weird loopy cursive btw. No no, I am not referring to the awesomely huge crowd, but rather the somewhat obtuse content of the quiz. It was a tough one. When Round one involves a question on Silicon and Feldspar, you know you;re info a bumpy ride. Some shining notes were very successful music and visual Rounds. I guess folks dig good, but not great singles by ladies and nerds. Some not so bright spots involved punctuation of films, Morocco and one-word descriptions of films. Despite the complexity and toughness, almost

Oh, Just Give Me The Damn Pork Roast

O Abby, where art thou on a night like this. I was stuck watching a battle of the sort of friends and that one guy over a ham bone not even Carl Weathers would want. Couple of them were cute, none of them were good enough at Big Buck Hunter as Ol' Stepdaddy Fox. The rounds didn't take too many twists and turns this week, but they did make one group of friends cry at the others expense.No Teamnames, No Quizmasters was a few ingredients short of the kind of stuff I want to see from their cookbook. I bet they would have known that molotov cocktails were named in response to the "breadbaskets"/bombs, but that didn't come up so they just looked awkward. Milo's
