Which is funny, because my secret identify is being another superhero! Faster than a paralyzed turtle. Able to leap tall beetles in a single bound. Let Underdog call Superman when you are in need!

Laughs filled the air at the Bronx Brewery last evening as the beers were flowing and the quizzers were fully engaged. One of the best parts of this gig is the back and forth banter between myself and the crowd, at times it’s a bit of heckling but yesterday it was a perfect orchestration of drunken communication. The quiz was on. Round 1 tested everyone’s knowledge of airport codes and the cities they reside in. It was So Foggy Outside where Bonnaroo nerds assembled against that Lovable Guiliani Assbaggery. Many doubled down on this round, embracing their travel experiences. Round 2: The Summer Storm with DJ POTUS explored Obama’s summer playlist, which was filled with classic

The Substitute 3: Winner Takes All
Vaughn

It seemed I had some very big shoes to fill as I stepped into Plug Uglies on a beautiful Sunday night in New York City.  Borrowing the reigns from Michael, I graciously stepped in to take on a closer knit group than I am used to but I would be lying if I didn’t say I still had a blast. Eight teams showed up with their thinking caps on, their drinking hands empty and their listening ears (I feel like I made that one up) open.  The scores bounced around for the most part but I got the feeling early that some people came for the atmosphere and others came to win.  The question that got everyone’s ears perked up was Transformer or Pornstar, which

Jett Blakk and Tommy Lee Jones in... Sex Tape Studs
Evan

Nicolas Cage is one of those actors who makes people foam at the mouth, whether out of rage because he makes such terrible movies, or out of enthusiasm for the spectacular array of films he's been in. I mean, there is no doubt that he's been in some truly shitty movies. Wicker Man. Ghost Rider. Captain Coral's Mandellini. (I think that's what it was called.) But on the same note, there are those who revel in the badness, who look at some of his movies as tongue-in-cheek reactions to a movie industry which sometimes takes itself too seriously. Con Air. Drive Angry. That other Ghost Rider movie. Whatever your opinions

Most venues don’t have third prize. I say most because most of the ones I’ve been to, whether with Geeks Who Drink or some other subpar collection of slack-jawed yokels reading questions and calling it a pub quiz, don’t have a third prize. I like a third prize. That’s not a revolutionary statement. I mean, who doesn’t? It’s an extra prize, a well-established finishing position: bronze medal, etc. Since it was my last quiz as the regular quizmaster of English Cellar I provided a third place prize last night. Much to my delight, it ended up going to a brand spanking new team. I love it when rookies win something, I really do. Here’s

Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

There have been a couple of rounds lately that are quite well done…well, they’re all pretty well done, but I’m talking specifically about the recent “three word clue” rounds.  The gist is this:  I read a clue that is 3 words long, and the first letters of each of the words is a clue to the answer.  Tonight was airport codes and cities.  It was a very cool round.  I really enjoyed how tonight’s round 8 jumped around a bit.  Question 6 asked about some Bible quotes, and question 8 asked “Transformer or Gay Porn Star”?  So let that be a lesson, kids…when prepping

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

Some former employees of O'Niell's stopped by to say hello and it was totally a blast from the past!  Glad to see you are all doing well and thanks for not being strangers!      As for the quiz, I'm pretty sure we were all still hung over from the Harry Potter quiz last night! We had it right here at O'Niell's and this place was filled to the Sorting Hat! We even have figured out how to wire for sound next door at Rob's Place, so we were able to accomodate more quizzlings. The scores were pretty fair for the most part. You are all welcome for the Transformer/Gay Porn questions. Four easy questions since

HOLY. SNITCHES. What a night! So many teams, so many costumes, so much fun! And a great cash prize too. You guys really brought it. There were some collectible prizes that weent out, including some hand-made snitches by your Defense Against the Sexual Arts teach, Hufflepuff Hammer. So, lets get to it. We opened Round 1 with a series of questions on Quidditch. Our high score for that round was SPUG, who got a 6. Then we moved on to our first audio round (people saying Potter) and since it was only 8 points, no jokers yet. SPUG again had the high score, this time of 7. We then moved in

Hey everybody!  My name is Richard Rasner, but I used to be known as "The Quiz Pimp" (a nickname given to me on my first day ever on the job as a GWD QM.) I'm the guy up on the old-fashioned microphone calling out your quiz and playing awesomely terrible music during the scoring breaks.  These days a new venue change means a new nickname, so now I'm apparently The Quizmaster General.

When I'm not Quizmastering my day job is as a fine art nude photographer under the moniker "Unique Nudes" -- That's right, my day to day life is taking pictures of naked people all over the world. And if that doesn't make you hate me enough, I also photograph live music, and spend my evenings hanging out backstage with rock stars such as Billy Idol, NIN, Papa Roach and more.  You can check out my Facebook if you don't believe me, but sadly it's all true.  I'm not just a geek, I'm one of the rare super-cool geeks.

So why be a Quizmaster?  Because I love quizzes and I love all of you.  That's right, without my players I would be nothing.  Your amusing team names and crazy banter keep me coming back week after week.  So keep coming! Keep talking to me! And win those fabulous prizes!

Tonight started off a little slow at Flipper’s Tavern, with a con happening and back to school for those seeking higher education and I thought the venue might cancel…but thankfully out of the rain came quizzers! What a night it was, between a Biz Markie sing along to discussing how frustrating it was back in the 90’s to pleasure yourself to online porn (buffering anyone?). The quiz took us to a few cities and airports that some of us may never visit. Plus, I had no idea that URANUS was the GOD OF THE TITANS!  He seems to always be the “butt” of planet jokes and now I guess he deserves more respect, but you know it’s hard to resist a good “Uranus”

That’s right, I’m borrowing from a team name for this one – they said it better than I could. Probably because they’re bigger Harry Potter nerds than I – which is misleading unto itself, really - I’m not at all a Harry Potter nerd. I’m a big fan of quizzes and trivia, though, so this themed quiz was a blast even if I barely know what a Dumbledore is. So a huge thank you to everyone who made this possible, I think our first themed-quiz was damn successful - $260 successful (congrats to Lovegood’s Hand of Glory, btw).

More fun than a barrel of Weasleys!
Major Tom

As I told everyone last night, I love Pub Quiz in general, but I really love themed Quizzes. A big group of nerds all getting together to celebrate something we all love and have in common. It's a beautiful thing, and I think it's my natural environment. I love that people dress up, or at least put on their topic-related t- shirts. I love that the crowds are big, and that there's a palpable energy about the place. I love the creative team names, and the laughs that they get. I love getting creative coming up with drink coupons or other prizes. I love seeing pictures of what other Quizmasters across the country did for their Quizzes. The cheers, the laughs, the boos, all the reactions

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.

Harry Potter Theme Quiz
Tyrannosaurus Jess

I was first introduced to Harry Potter at the tender age of 11, in Mr. Cramer’s 6th grade class. This was in 1998. A girl in my class had Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, and my teacher read it to us during snack time. We all listened, captivated, about the story of the boy who lived, and his friends Ron and “Her-mion” (because no one knew how to pronounce Hermione back then). And thus began my obsession.   I am not sure what it is about my family, but we like standing in line for things. I have stood in line for the release of every Harry Potter book from Chamber of

The prophecy came true! As it was foretold, lo, many people did descend upon Spats for an evening of Harry Potter quizzing, and many a good time was had! At least, I hope that was the general feeling. No mere 'trivia' evening was this; our Geeks Who Drinks High Quizmasters had assembled eight rounds of perplexing questions that would challenge even the most diligent muggle, let alone a fledgling Hogwarts student. This was a true test, tougher than the Triwizard Tournament, harder than a horcrux and smarter than Hermione on steroids. With a packed house assembled in every nook and cranny of Spats' Jungle Room, and quizzing decrees decorating the walls, we began with a simple,
