Who's Got Game?
RobotNarwhal

Well, the Super Bowl happened.  Don’t get me wrong; I had a great time watching the game, and being a Colorado native, I’m glad that the Broncos won. There’s just something so lackluster about the overall event these days, kind of like the whole experience has passed its hay day or something.   First, I think they overdo it with the “game technology.”  The incredibly redundantly dubbed “Eye Vision” angles on the touchdowns were cool, but they spent so much time on close ups trying to get gritty that home viewers couldn’t actually see a lot of what was happening.  At least 3 major penalties got called that happened

Jessica has two of the greatest jobs ever: QMMF, and drinking beer for a living.  We are not even kidding.  She also enjoys movies, Science Fiction, rock and roll, taking longs walks on any available tropical beach, and slowly vying for world domination.  She's an irritating optimist with an existential bend, and is a fan of tattoos that include punctuation marks and/or robots.  She has an unhealthy obsession with whales, and although she kinda prefers humpbacks, narwhals are pretty damn cute.  And don't even get her started on belugas.

How the heck do you spell Megan anyway????
Woody

So the new server tonight, her name is Meaghan… And that is how she spells it.  I have a daughter Megen, spelled differently of course.  It got to thinking, the name Megen has the most different, unique spellings of any name!  Here is the best list I could find:  Meagan, Megan, Meghan, Meaghan, Maegan, Maeghan, Meegan, Meeghan, Meghann, Megen, Meagen, Megyn, Meggan, Meggin, Maygen, Meagin, Meagen, Meaghean, Mehgan...and many more.  That is 19, but please note it says “and many more”!!!   Did anyone notice Eli Manning in the box when the Broncos were about to win… everyone else was smiling and cheering…

Why Do You Think They Call It Panda Express???
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Because I think we all know that there’s totally chunks of real (delicious) panda in there. Maybe I should have accepted that as a correct answer to the racist riddle that Prince Philip is apparently famous for. At the very least, we should probably give him a couple of months in race jail for that one. Also, Bob Marley is not the black version of Jacob Marley. I’ll see myself to race jail now. What an exciting quiz we had last night! From the jump, it was extremely competitive, with only one point separating first place from third. And heading in to our final round, a mere two points separated the top three teams. Even

Cookie Monster Sings the Hits
Paddycake

If you ask me, Cookie Monster needs to make an entire album of cookie-centric covers of pop songs. ROund 2 last night was delightful! Only 2 of them were Cookie Monster singing but I wanted more. I guess I relate to him, having a very distinct love of cookies. My mother was a pastry chef so we always had homemade cookies in the house, and I make them pretty often too. Maybe I'll make a huge batch and bring them to quiz sometime. Anyway, we had 8 rounds of craziness last night. Village Idiots Savant had a perfect round 2 and jokered for an early lead, which they held on to for most of the game. Round 8 proved to be their downfall, as they slipped down

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!

Greetings from mystical Henderson. THe magic continues at Crafthaus Brewery as we just came off the high that was Comrade day. When something happens twice with intention we call that tradition right? Superbowl weekend saw its second event from Crafthaus, no doubt there will be a third. Block party next year!   A perfect round in the 2nd by Kwiz La’ Kweefa and I am going to require them to retire the name. Oh Dear! climbed the rankings in the 2nd as well with a 14 pointer. A young team in Crafthaus quiz lore, but a great example of maximising brain power with optimum team members. When they first

Nobody Here Has a Case of the Mondays!
The Suit

It was a nice easy night here for us at Tavern Hall in wonderful Bellevue! I got my two favorite teams of regulars to show up and duke it out for free drinks and some cold, hard-almost cash. Regardless of who showed up, the quiz was super fun, the drinks were great, the food, well, forget about the food. It’s always phenomenal. Anywho, here’s how we did: Big props to Rainbows Dashed for being as friendly and perky as usual as they tried to get on-the-spot repeats. Unfortunately, my leniency didn’t lead them into a victory but at least they tried. Plus, it’s always good to see their bright, shining faces laugh at my mediocre jokes. THAT

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 catchphrase "I was going to make a joke but I couldn't think of a good punchline in time."

A Murder of Nuns
Master Moose

I often think about how the universe is filled with scales and how little space we, as humans, take up on those scales. For example, and as I've mentioned in past blogs, on the scale of electromagnetic energy, from .0001nm Gamma rays to 100m AM radio waves, our visible light spectrum is a tiny ~300nm range and more than half of the energy we don't see is deadly to us. On the physiological pH scale you're dead below 7.35 or above 7.45 and on the scale of temperatures in the universe, from the coldest thing we've ever encountered at ~minus273 degrees Celsius to the hottest thing at ~5.5Trillion degrees Celsius, us humans can naturally survive, on a long-term basis, in a miniscule ~20 degree

Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

Tonight…you…were privy to quite possibly the greatest evening of quizmastering (heh, I'm a knowledge Dom) that I've pulled off to date.  I'll actually get to that later on ze blog, so focus up, buckle yo' seatbelts and hop in for the ride. Apparently either my face, my voice, my personality, or possibly the whole business managed to drive out approximately 13 people at the start of quiz.  To be fair, 9 of them were one single, large team who knew ahead of time that quiz was happening, that it would be a little louder than usual

Jeremy "Murder She Wrote" C

I'm going to be the first to say it. Sesame Street will always be relevant and awesome. I watched it growing up and today when I happen to catch clips on YouTube when I see musicians write new songs for the show, or rework their own songs into kid friendly versions, it actually is pretty awesome. One of my favorites was Elvis Costello when he redid Angels want to wear my red shoes It didn't even feel like a kids song. Another one of my favorites is Dave Matthews and Grover singing a song about feelings. It's absolutely beautiful.

Hello, my name is Jeremy and I'm a geek who drinks. What does it mean to be a geek who drinks? I have random knowledge on things like music. I can quote Pulp Fiction like it's no one's business. On my GPS Darth Vader tells me where to go. That's the fun part. The bad part is I also drink. When I drink, I write blogs that have the word "fuck" in it a lot. I make up stories of things that happened in my mind. I also delete my own bio and really don't remember doing it. Thankfully though, I never sucked dick for coke. That was Bob Saget. 

The moral of the story, it's ok to be a geek who drinks, in fact I encourage it. I encourage you to come down to my venue on a Monday or a Tuesday and drink it out with me. I'll quiz you, you give me right answers, and don't be a dick and shout anything out.

Foot Binding Was Seriously Messed Up
Cap'n Brendan

I don’t know why, but in Junior High social studies I got really interested in foot binding when we studied China. Maybe it’s that I wear a size 14 shoe, and many brands stopped at 13. Or maybe it was just morbid curiosity. Either way, when it came up on a documentary I was fascinated. I started devouring as much information as I could find on the topic. And it truly is horrendous. You know, I think it was the fascination with an unattainable ideal of beauty that drew me in. What these women subjected themselves to, all in the name of trying to be something they thought men wanted… It’s gut wrenching. Excruciating pain, infections, lifelong disabilities. The

JT Keeps it Really Real
AdamFedyski

Every once in a while, a round of questions comes around that makes you wonder why it is not used on a weekly basis. This week, quizzers were treated to such a round that merely grazed the surface of Justin Timberlake’s vast library of awesomeness. Could JT serve as a round subject once a week? If so, how long could such a charade last? Worry not about these trivial questions- just appreciate it when we have an entire round devoted to a true voice of our generation. Tonight’s quiz helped us with an essential grammatical nugget: there are more words with double letters than you typically think about. Just look at that last sentence. We had fewer teams than the average week

Happy Birthday Liz!
Josh

Well ladies and gents it’s another one in the record books. We got started a little bit late due to some technical difficulties but all the teams that stuck with us had a great time. I know I did! Everybody was on the ball and making sure to get answers filled out quickly so we could move through and not keep people up too late for a Monday night. Overall it was a tight race for the finish line but It's Liz's Birthday and She'll Cry If She Wants To managed to make it into first place. Happy Birthday Liz!

If You Think Justin Timberlake Was In Reservoir Dogs, You've Definitely Never Seen Reservoir Dogs
JoeMills

24ish hours after the Denver Broncos clinched the Super Bowl title, those of us left standing after the great post-game riots managed to haul our asses down to Historians for our usual Monday Night GWD Pub Quiz.  I personally had the most amazing weekend of my life, as I turned 34 on Friday, hot tubbed at a fancy hotel with a bunch of teenagers, and watched the Broncos maul the Panthers for my first ever "hey my team actually won and I'm actually in the city when they won it" championship.    I assume many of our usual quizzers were yet to be bailed out of county lockup for tonight's quiz.  Nine teams competed tonight, in a quiet, but hotly contested quiz.

New Year New You Round Two
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Good Evening Geeks of Wyman's!  How nice it is is to see you all again. One of these weeks I am going to come play when Ellen hosts so I can see how the other half lives. This bar is sweet and perfect for quizzing in. I love your dedication to the game and that is it easy to hear audio rounds. Also, that pizza looks amazing.  Anyway, Happy Chinese New Year! May you have good fortune and a second shot at your OG resolution. Or just make new ones. I am opting for choice B. Way back in the month of January, I committed to getting my shit together. Along the way I realized shit is fine and I should focus instead on just living life. So there you go, second shot.

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Andrea

What every good quiz needs, a healthy dose of insensitivity, racism, and a dash of soup.  This was my favorite answer of the evening, so mad-props to my fourth place team, Quiz or Quiz Out You, thank you for making me laugh. Thanks to my first and third place teams for bringing me edible goodies.  You’re my favorites, don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise*.

Apart from two misguided years in my youth, I've been a tried and true Texan all my life.

Here's a little bit about me: 

  • Shamelessly obsessed with all things Harry Potter, Supernatural, film, and BBC Sherlock.
  • Did gymnastics for 9 years...and yes, I can still do a flip.
  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.
  • My music tastes are as eclectic as my movie tastes.
  • I love to talk!

So come swing by and say hi!
