Like a Virgin (It's Our First TIme)
Tenacious E

Hello friends! Tonight was the first quiz night at Mu Brewery as well as my first time as a solo host. I think fun was had by all. The quizzers did not appear to be nervous at all, which I found odd considering how nervous I was! We all got through it without dying, imploding or getting sick in the bathroom. Yay us! We had a great first time turnout with four teams coming to play.   One thing that we all learned last night is that Chex is not the same as Crispix, much to the disdain of everyone involved. We had one team leave halfway, they didn’t even know that quiz was happening. In third place we had the aptly named, Not

Casey is a Beautiful Unicorn
QM Colleen

May I just say, when I told you that seeing a full Boulder Coffee warmed my heart and made me happy beyond belief - I was speaking mountains of truth. Thank you everyone for coming last night. Rochester is really getting into the Rumble and it's causing teams to try out new venues and quiz on nights they have never ventured to quiz before. We are creatures of habit and even the most hardcore of quizzers tend not to stray from their home venue. That could be loyalty or comfort but it means that many quiz teams fail to meet one another. It is always good to introduce new competition. It makes quiz more exciting, keeps teams on their toes, and ultimately fulfills a social quota

Colleen is a Rochester native with a heart of gold. Icy, icy gold. You can find her at Wall Street every Tuesday night and occasionally on a stage somewhere else in Rochester. Doing theater. Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

On Literary Rabbits I've Known
RobotNarwhal

I think it was the third grade when I made my Halloween appearance as Bunnicula.  As a kid, I read a ton, and at that age, Bunnicula was one of my all time favorites.  I don’t remember much of it now, just that he was a vegetable sucking vampire bunny who eventually earned the friendship of the other family pets, one of which was an ill-tempered wire-haired dachshund.  Shortly after, I graduated from the Bunnicula books right in to more adult fare like Watership Down.  Now *that* is a rabbit tale that will permanently mess with your mind.  In fact, I’d wager that if you asked me to name my favorite books, Watership Down is at the

Tonight we heard the famous cry of Nancy Kerrigan pleading for help after her knee got busted.  Thankfully, I didn't have to utter those words after subbing here at Crossroads, because I had all my quizzers by my side tonight!  Thanks to all of you who shushed the loud group who walked in during Round 7.  No matter how many obnoxious comments they made, you stood firm and quizzed on! Wikipedia Brown was back again this week and won by a landslide, scoring 5 perfect rounds.  They left quickly after stating "No pictures, please..." and ducking their heads as they ran from the bar and probably into their stretch limos with ever present bodyguards.

Last night was pretty packed, y’all. I don’t remember the last time we had 13 teams. This may have been a first, actually. You popped my 13-teams cherry, and it barely hurt at all. You’re all so gentle with me, it’s almost like you care!   I love having that many people playing, because it makes it that much better of a game. The more teams we have, the more competition there is, and the more opportunity we have for a close quiz, which is what we had going on last night. As you can see from the scores, it was a one-point difference between first and second, and only five points from second to third. That’s pretty awesome, if I may be so bold

We're All In This Together
JakeSchwingshakl

I know I've mentioned before that summer is a bit of a crap shoot when putting on a Quiz. Something about having to compete with the fantastic weather, sun, fresh air, and all the fun that summer has to offer. But that's before you remember that being outside isn't as much fun as being inside where it's air conditioned, there's lots of ice cold beer, and GWD of course. The fact that it's been hot and sticky has definitely helped draw the people in. Not to mention the fact that we have a ping pong table at Puddler's Hall. But that's beside the point.  I realize that the title of this week's edition may not make sense, but when you have a question about High School Musical, you

Do not slap that colostomy bag!!
Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

I've noticed a bit of a theme in some of ze quizzes lately…the writers are pretty insistent that you lovely quizzers know your alphabet.  Last week, the Round 8, question 8 was a 4 pointer on state capitals, and what the next state capital (alphabetically) is.  Tonight, the quizzers had to list the next US President in alphabetical order (by last name).  If that sounds a little convoluted, it is.  However, in a solid effort to thwart the writers, you guys did pretty well on that. Sadly, we said goodbye and adios to one of the regular quizzers, Vince.  He's apparently heading to Savannah, GA for work shenanigans, and

Howdy kids, my name is Steve, and I ask the tough questions, like "Which president comes next in alphabetical order?" Our second trivia night at the 480 Bar was more intimate, but that just allowed for a lot more smack talk than last week. Sadly, most of that smack talk was directed at team mates instead of opponents.Tonight we learned that you can successfully play pool and participate in a pub quiz; that parents should not play on the same team with their children, for fear of destroying the family unit; and that bubble wrap is an excellent motivational tool.On a personal note, tonight's quiz featured one of my favorite GWD items ever.

Until We Meet Again...
Mitchicus Mathematicus

We had an awesome night of quiz, and it was because of the people who came out to play. We had teams who played regularly, like Chooch and Fatmen + Lauren, as well as an old familiar face. Seriously, Brett, I haven't seen you at a quiz since 2 venues ago! It was great to see you resurrecting the team name of Fist Full of Bacon. Indeed, it was great to see all of you. If only my voice had shown up to this party. Quiz itself was a blast. We had a sudden lead change at the end, and a number of memorable moments in bad guesses and joke answers. In particular, I have to point out Life's a Mitch's round

Howdy, all. Mitch here. I'm an Arizona-grown U of A alum with a job teaching students that Math doesn't have to suck. I've been quizzing with friends for three years and have been loving it ever since. Now as a QM, I just need to work on the whole talking and blogging thing. 

I am a huge retro gamer. I should have won the Star Fox Weekend leather jacket as a kid, and I did win a Nintendo Wii playing Guitar Hero. I'm sadly lacking in knowledge of all the "cool" games kids play these days, but I'm still down with the classics. I'm also a fan of bad movies and mozzarella cheesesticks. 

Other life accomplishments include being published in "Highlights" magazine, meeting Walter Jones the power ranger, beating Super Metroid in 80 minutes with 100% completion, and never going to Senior Prom.

Sweet, Sweet Rumble Points To The Victors!

Savvy quizzers know that when an avenue exists to possibly claim the altar of “greatest pub quiz team in the country”, you hit that avenue with sustained vigor. Bone-Thugs-N-Hermione know this, and they have had the pleasure of being the first Rumble entrants to visit one of my quizzes to vie for Rumble points, part of GWD’s annual nationwide contest awarding championship points to those teams who can win a bunch of quizzes at different bars on different nights. I can say it’s a dandy life to play all the pub quizzes you can, and now GWD is dearly rewarding those who do! If you agree, make sure you get your roving team a Rumble ID and get to rackin’

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better ringtone than the one I have set up on my phone. But I can’t take all the credit. I stole it from Sterling Mallory Archer. And sweet Jeebus, is it catchy!

You Can Do It, Put Your Brain into It
AdamFedyski

  The title of this blog serves as a memorial to the song that Ice Cube never wrote. It could have been a school-age hit in the same way that “Conjunction Junction” captured the minds of my generation in grade school. Alas, Ice Cube’s version instead left us with such influential and groundbreaking lines as “You can try to smoke an ounce to this, While I pronounce this shit, Baby bounce them tits, Mama move them hips, Baby shake them cheeks, I got dick for days, You got ass for weeks”. So here’s pouring out a little Dimetapp for the educational song that never was. Tonight was the first Monday of Rumble in the Pub 2015

In Which I Talk About My Diet Plan... Oh No, What Have I Become?
Professor D

Again, a most excellent quiz at Abel’s North!   It’s not often that I feel like I can play both Stan Rogers AND Cascada in the same night, but today I was feeling it.   So there are several of the other quizmasters who started a bet online about who could lose a certain amount of weight in a certain amount of time. Basically, I need to drop 4% of my body weight by the end of the month, which seems pretty do-able. That’s why tonight, I was drinking water.   I know. I was a little shocked, too. But this is what I do when I diet, I just cut out booze, flour, and sugar for a couple

the one with the banana flavored twinkies
Alley Cat

The great twinkie/pop tart debate struck again tonight. I, myself, am a huge s'mores pop tart fan. Never had a twinkie in my life. But what I learned tonight, is that I probably never will. As it turns out, the patrons of the Chesterfield are very familiar with the differences between Twinkies and Pop Tarts. One is obviously delicious and with a variety of tasty flavors and the other was recently taken off the shelves, never to see the light of day again. And apparently had an original banana flavored center. For anyone that knows me, bananas are my enemy. Banana intolerance over herrrrr! Several teams came out for the Rumble tonight.

And if you missed it, you missed a good time.Let's take a stroll through the thoughts that crossed my QM brain as we covered everything from Nazi leadership to Harry Potter.- Among the other "g" words covered in round 1, we discussed Hermann Goering's role as the head of the Luftwaffe.
